How do you spend your time in the airport terminal?
As soon as I am checked in and through security I can’t help myself and head towards the make-up counters at a rapid pace.
Last weekend I found two beauties from M.A.C.
(Probably the excitement about the destination helped. My daughter Emily and I went to Northern Sweden in Lapland chasing the Aurora Borealis. Yes, we were the luckiest of all as we watched the Northern Lights dance and play for over two hours. This night was one of “those`’ moments.)
Back to the lipstick find… not that we needed fabulous lips in -15 degree temperatures with full-face balaclavas.
Why would a practicality like that ever deter us?
The Zac Posen has the most fantastic finish, matte but not over dry matte and so easy to apply with a very firm edge. The colour I fell for is Dangerously Red, more pink than red and a great lift after the dark reds of winter. Emily went for the Darling Clementine, a delicious shade of deep orange.
Then we found the Retro Matte Liquid and tried that too.
I went pale; she went red.
These are gorgeous and have a matte almost “suede like” finish.
Definitely one or two for the handbag. xv
