Living in London and keeping up with life in the capital can make you feel very serious and focused. You can sometimes forget that in a city like this – anything goes.
Maybe that’s why I decided to have a bit of fun one morning, and bring out a lipstick from the archives that is “super-kawaii”! and fun.
This limited edition lipstick, between MAC and Hello Kitty, may have come over 10 years ago, but I still have them nestled in my archives, and throwing caution to the wind I decided to try them out this week.
I love the pastel lipstick that is reminiscent of a frosted strawberry ice-cream and is so sixties it’s delightful, and I knocked it back with a hot pink lipstick from Shu Uemura to give it a more wearable edge.
I’m not sure many beauty editors would recommend keeping lipsticks for over a decade, but I seem to have survived. I mean, even taking a quick glance at the news this week makes me think this is a very small risk to take!
When you live in London, and no one ever takes a second glance – it’s a lot of fun to experiment with beauty looks!
