Prestige "Velvet" Lipstick


There's been a long term love affair between myself and deep red lipstick. I got sent this item and, as a bit of a brand snob, wasn't expecting much but was left pleasantly surprised.

The lipstick glides on seamlessly delivering an extremely pigmented colour. The colour comes out much lighter than expected and instead of a wine red you get a cherry red. My only issue with this product is that as the formula is quite waxy it has a tendency to stick on dry bits, but as long as you exfoliate before application you should be fine. It's available for £3.99 from any good supermarket.
