Ah, fall. The return of the bold lip is upon us.
A while back I posted about my favourite lipsticks (an apt liking considering the name of this blog, no?) and within the line up was this piece of red perfection – Burberry’s Lip Cover in Ruby No.18 it’s possibly the greatest red lipstick I’ve ever met.
It’s not matte, but rather a sheeny luminous finish that’s comfortable and light on the lips yet opaque. The greatest thing is probably the shade of red. It’s not vibrant and poppy or dark and vampy but a nice in between, it’s a ruby red as the name would suggest. It doesn’t pull too orangey-yellow so it doesn’t make the teeth look like you should be laying off the coffee but it’s not so blue based that it’ll be unflattering on the more yellow toned ‘gals. I was reminded of this one after months of wearing nudey pinks and peachy tones by the onslaught of bloggers discussing the “Burberry 2015 FW” make up look which featured this lipstick and no mascara. I like to keep a similarly toned lipliner on hand to keep this creamy formula from ending on my chin (it’s happened).
Have you been reminded of an old favourite by the recent autumn time beauty buzz?
