The colour purple - Lancome Brillant Bluebird
My latest lipstick!
I have loved purple since 1971 when it was THE fashion colour.
1971 magazine spread. Purple. And see those shoes? Ankle straps, block heels and platforms. Love.
OK, I have the tights and some shoes. Purple.
All I need is the lippie. The lippie at the top. It's Lancome. It's purple. It must be gorgeous. Lancome? Je l'adore depuis plusieurs d'annees! And did I mention the purple thing?
Well.....In the tube it was a riot of colour and texture. And after using up half a tube on my lips (on and on I pressed and slathered) it ended up like............this. Thank the Lord it was an internet bargain and not full price. I could have spat!
If I'd wanted a lipgloss I'd have bought a ruddy lipgloss. What a cheek.
Good news though!
TJ Hughes have a bunch of Urban Decay stuff at £2.99 each. Today was also 20% off and I got a bostin' lipstick and eyeliner.
PS You have any bargain tips?
