As much as I adore lip gloss, you’ve got to give it up for a good lipstick. My absolute favourite is MAC’s Milan Mode, a bright shimmery fuchsia that brightens up my uber-pale cool complexion and, thanks to a rad blue undertone, creates the illusion of super white teeth. It looks a lot more ‘pers’ than it really is in the piccie (below), its actually much prettier in ‘real life’.
Anyway, there are a couple of other lipsticks due to launch later this year that I’m rather excited about; one being Smashbox’s Be Legendary (R160), due out in March. The collection consists of 14 new shades, some cream, others matte. Both have been infused with antioxidant vitamins C and E. I haven’t tried them yet myself, but they’re getting rave reviews from big deal bloggers in the states.
Another lippie range I’m DYING to get my mitts on is the Kate Moss for Rimmel collection.
Everyone’s who’s tried it is declaring it THE SHIZZ as they’re super-pigmented, apply like a dream and all of the colours are just ridiculously fab. My favourite hot mess beauty writer, Cat Marnell of XOJane* is acting like they’re the second coming, so they can’t not be awesome, right? Check her write up over here.

*Whaaat?! You don’t read OXJane? My God, get over there pronto! My fave thing to do at night when I have insomnia, which is like aaaalll the time, is read XOJane articles on my Blackberry. I love their real life ‘It happened to me’ stories; shizz like ‘I worked the graveyard shift at a sex store’ and ‘I relapsed into alcoholism on mouthwash’. Trust me, you’ll love it…
