I am tired, not just today but always, I suffer from three different conditions that all have fatigue as a symptom, add in medication side effects, exhausted is a polite way to describe me! After reading lots of articles telling me that a red lipstick was the way to lift a tired complexion I convinced myself that the one thing I needed more than anything was a kick ass red lipstick!
Oh, dear reader how simple life would be if you could bowl into a shop and just buy a red lipstick! But it isn’t, it’s a 24 carat nightmare! Here is my painful story……
I started with what I thought would be a foolproof buy, Charlotte Tilbury in Love Bite…..
Wow it was red! And totally overwhelmed my face, it was the tomato red that an online test ( yes really) assured me was the one but no that wasn’t it, undeterred I then bought three mini lipsticks from Charlotte Tilbury that included the suits all red ” So Marilyn”……….
A beautiful colour but again just way too much.
Off to the high street this time and the Loreal Collection Exclusive “Blakes red” …………..
Imagine my horror that this didn’t look red, but more pink, hang on though, this actually looked better.
Hooray!! Face lifting, brightening and not too in your face. This one came courtesy of an early birthday present from my mum and dad but should you want your own head to http://www.charlottetilbury.com.
All the pictures are unfiltered to hopefully show you the true colour.
Next week is my birthday and I am celebrating with another up cycling project hopefully!
