What is your most favourite piece of makeup?

Your MOST favourite now, the thing you couldn’t imagine every being without now that you’ve got your grubby mitts on it. It doesn’t need to be something that you use every day, or even that often. It just needs to inspire a deep and abiding love in you.

For me it’s a red lipstick. But not just any auld red lipstick, a bright red matte lipstick. It’s NARS Dragon Girl. It is the lipstick (pencil) that finally turned me from a red-lipo-phobe to a full on, “look at me, I’m gorgeous” red lip diva. A cool toned red with a hint of pink to it, it suits my pale and pink toned complexion to a tee. It’s a cinch to apply, lasts forever and wears off evenly leaving a pretty stain on the lips. I love it. I cannot, and will not live without it ever again. It completes me.

1. Mac All Fired Up Lipstick from the Retro Mattes Collection. This beautiful fuchsia matte lippie is right up my street. Sadly as I already own around 5 fuchsia lipsticks, once of which is matte, I’m not sure even I would be able to justify this purchase….shocking I know =O
