Madonna – Red Lipstick Queen!

Happy Birthday Madonna, 60 today!! If there is one thing I associate with Madonna more than anything, it's red lipstick. She was my red lip inspiration. She was the one who got me into it, aged 14, when I used to sneak it on at school, and remove it later. Leos Don’t Apologize for taking the Road less Traveled By. 🦁. Happy Full Moon of Leo. 🔥🔥🔥!! Burn Baby Burn! #norisk #noglory #nofear A post shared … [Read more...]

Red Lips!

I LOVE a red lipstick. It's a bold, powerful, uber-feminine statement. Worn by wonderful women like Madonna, and Marilyn Monroe, to name just two. It is the original lipstick. It's the only lipstick for many, and every woman should wear red at least once in her life. But, it is also hard to find the 'perfect red'. I am not about to tell you how to do that in this one blog post, but, I am bringing you a choice of a few reds that you might … [Read more...]

Lipstick Chess from Lipstick Queen

It must be hard, being just a lipstick brand, and coming up with new and innovative products all the time. Poppy King, whose brand is Lipstick Queen, certainly does that. But this newly launched collection - Lipstick Chess - is more of a gimmick than an innovative product, I think. That's not to say it's not cute - but I have to admit I am not the biggest chess fan that ever lived! There are six shades in the collection, all named after a … [Read more...]

Bobbi Brown Red Hot Collection

Ah, Bobbi Brown loves her reds. I never thought I would say that. I've been in this game so long, I can actually remember when Bobbi Brown had NO red lipsticks. And, apparently, she launched her brand in 1991 because she was sick of reds! Times change, however, and bold, bright, mostly red, lipstick is back in vogue. Back in 2010, Bobbi launched a red lipstick range - read more about that here - and now she's starting off 2017 with her Red Hot … [Read more...]

Nothing cheers you up better than a new lipstick , right? It's actually a fact, that in hard times, sales of lippy go up. It's a fast, easy, and relatively cheap way to update your look, and in the summer, I like to move to a more sheer lipstick when I'm on holiday, during the day at least. YSL's Rouge Volupte Shine Oil-in-Stick is a sheer-ish lippy,and I love them. There are 12 new shades to add to the 18 original colours, and they're … [Read more...]

I love it, and I have NO DOUBT, you will too. (Sorry, I couldn't resist!) It's on counter today, and there are four new items. And let's start with … [Read more...]
