I’ve always adored red lipstick. It’s such an empowering colour and extremely chic and seductive. It says you’re someone to be reckoned. But as much as I adore it….
Red lipstick has never suited me
The full-lipped goddesses can carry it off and look magnificent, but for those of us with smaller lips, it’s more of a challenge. It can make lips look thinner and give quite a severe look. And so I’ve always steered clear of it, until now.
I’ve finally found a red I can wear
Of course it had to be Studio 10 who would create a flattering red for everyone! And as ever with Studio 10, who know how to flatter a mature face more than anyone, it’s all down to texture as much as colour.
They’ve added a red called Poppy to their fab Wake Up & Glow Lip & Cheek Tint range.
It’s not a solid colour and it’s not matte
These two things are crucial to give a more luscious effect. And you can build the colour up. A quick swipe and you have a red hue in a lovely dewy finish. Add a bit more and the colour intensifies. As with all the Lip & Cheek range, it also has an inner circle of hyaluronic acid running through it to hydrate and treat the lips and cheeks. And it works brilliantly as a cheek tint too.
I have, of course, added it to the Ageless shop where you can check it out:
In the video below, you can see the colour for yourself and see what I mean about it being so much more wearable because of the texture.
