I must say - I am starting to worry myself. I have found that lately I have been some craving a dark tan and pale pink lips, one of the worst pairings in existence! I have no idea where it has come from...maybe the recent bout of wag wannabes in the press have subconsciously been inspiring me? Oh Lord. If I ever look like this, please schedule an intervention for me!
ANYWAY - you want to read about lipstick, not my 1/4 life crisis, right? I bought 17 'Heart Throb' sometime last year when it was part of some sort of three for two offer at Boots. With it not really being a 'me' lipstick colour (AKA, not nude) I've hardly worn it - but I rediscovered it recently and have been loving it ever since!
[[ Another perfect lippy colour for Spring! ]]
'Heart Throb' is a pale, but light, blue toned pink which also doubles as a decent blush colour for a fresh, clean look. It reminds me a lot of Pantone's 'Colour of 2011', 'Honeysuckle'. This is the only 'Lasting Fix' lipstick I have found particularly drying, but it's nothing a slick of balm can't handle. I don't often notice wear time for lippies since it's rare that I don't have my lips pressed against the rim of a cup of tea, leaving lippy marks behind, so I couldn't fairly comment.
Now I'll do that annoying thing - 'Heart Throb' has been discontinued. However, pale pink lippies are a staple of any line aimed at teenagers so their other shades 'Dreamy' and 'Marshmallow Whip' might be worth a look! 17 'Lasting Fix' lipsticks are available from Boots for £4.29.
