The Rose Chapters: Lip Colour

It’s nothing to be ashamed of. Rose is cool – not because I say so, but because brands like Fresh, REN and Lancome are bringing it back. There was a time when it was seen as the scent of the elders — maybe I love it because I’m all grown up? In my series of rose-inspired posts I’ve decided to start with a couple of lip colours that are new to the market and something you can enjoy whether you’re a lipstick or lip gloss fan. Check out the pictures.

From the new Dior Addict Gloss Collection ($31), Dior have graced us with a gloss and lipstick couple that whether apart or together compliment any skin tone of woman.

Lancome’s Rouge In Love lipstick formula is one of my favourites around right now.It’s creamy and smooth, but totally delicate. Just like a rose.

{Full coverage}

Although these lipsticks feel incredibly lightweight and sheer, the coverage is full and perfect. I initially thought shade 343b would be too blue for me but I kinda like it.

Okay – for real, I hate lipgloss but this gloss is somethin’ else. The texture is so balmy but it offers a eye-catching pop of colour on the lips. Is it just me or does it make my lips look 3D? This silky lipgloss certainly gives you a pout to shout about.

      Haha Kristen you’re so sweet! I never normally wear pinks (red is my go-to everyday) but I have a ton of them. Need to wear them more often! Thanks for reading πŸ˜€
