This weekend I have been mostly:
a) Packing in preparation for my move next week
b) Watching entire season 1 of The Americans and
c) Falling in love...with a lipstick.
The focus of this is on the latter but I could easily dedicate a post to Keri Russell. How beautiful is she?
Anyway, I got this lipstick on impulse. I was in Sephora to check whether they had the Les Beiges powder in 20 for Simone and whilst that search proved fruitless I stepped over to the Dolce & Gabanna stand and checked it out.
I have always been interested in their make up - ever since Lorraine/The Current Custom raved about the bronzer - but never really had a chance to examine the range in person.
I was surrounded by two over-zealous sales assistants so I didn't hang around long but I did pick up a Passion Duo Gloss Fusion lipstick and ran away from them to pay at the counter.
This is just lovely. The premise is a layer of rich, creamy lipstick with an inner core of gleaming gloss and it comes housed in sleek light golden packaging.
I am so buying more of these. Luxurious is such an overused adjective in the beauty game but it's the word that truly fits in this case. It's so incredibly pigmented and it literally melts into your lips, leaving a super flattering finish that shines.
I got the shade Natural this time and it's a lovely "natural" nude. Not too pink and not too brown - it's sits in the middle and is very forgiving as a result.
I found this quite hard to photograph but how it looks on my mug is probably the most accurate shot. It's a sort of "sweet beige".
And excuse the photo background...
I know, I know....too glamourous!
You can buy this at Harrods - Link! or on sites like Sephora - Link! and it's around the £25 mark.
PS. On my face...
