WE’RE in the middle of moving house at the moment, as well as having a toddler, so finding time for romance isn’t as easy as it once was.
A spritz of a new perfume and a slick of a new lipstick can help even the most tired-out mama feel a million dollars again though, so to up the ante on the romance factor I picked up the Modern Muse eau de parfum from Le Rouge Gloss range, and one of the matte lipsticks.
Let me first talk about the bottle – it’s absolutely stunning in a vibrant crimson and makes even the most dull dressing table look divine.
Liquid lipsticks are perfect for Valentine’s Day as they look fabulous but you don’t have to worry about them smudging off. I wonder if there will ever be a time when I go back to the traditional bullet style lipstick, but as a former gloss addict who rarely reaches for a gloss now I admit I must be swayed by trends and new beauty technologies.
The liquid lip offering from Estée Lauder – Pure Colour Envy, I’ve trialled Fierce Beauty – is a lovely sweetheart flush of a shade in a rosey pink and isn’t too matte – a lovely wash of colour is imparted over the lips. It’s an extremely wearable colour which I much prefer to the swathe of taupe and nude colours in super matte finishes that are seemingly trending at the moment.
