Raspberry, with a “p”.
Albeit a word with a strange spelling.
What is the “p” all about? There is nothing “rasping” about raspberry. This is a word to denote everything luscious and delicious and a word to conjure up goodness and pleasure in every which way. Whether raspberry is a taste, a touch or a vision, all in all it is is one potent word.
Raspberry is my summer lip colour.
It is a notch down from the deep, plums and the blue reds of the cooler months. To me, raspberry spells summer in capital letters. It suggests happiness and holidays, family, friends and relaxed times.
I like mine to have a hint of blue, like my reds; no orange undertones. I like to think the shade is tinged with a touch of blueberry.
On holiday, when time is precious, a dash of raspberry over some tinted cc colour and a blend of Beach Stick is all I use. It’s enough and the luscious lip shade gives me the lift I need. It has the similar affect to a bright, bright orange only a tad softer.
There is something very pretty, very feminine about raspberry; even with a “p”. xv
