I've been meaning to get this post up since after Christmas, but I lost my SD card with these images on for ages, (you can imagine the terror!) and then when I had thankfully found it, well, life just gets in the way doesn't it. But now here we are! My second official beauty post of the blog (you can read the first one here) is now up and running. I received this beauty from my lovely Mumma Magpie for Christmas, after banging on about
needing wanting a 'high end' red lippie for ages. I have countless lipsticks, especially red ones, but you just can't beat that feeling of luxury when it's a famous brand name. Now, my Mother being the clever bean she is, knew this, and thought outside the box slightly. And that's how I ended up with the gorgeous Dior Rouge Dior Baume in Lys Rouge. She explained that due to it being a balm rather than an actual lipstick, it gives a slightly more subtle effect which is more suitable for work/ daytime. I thought this was a fab idea! I occasionally wear a red lip in the day, more so at weekends than for work, but even then I still feel just that tad bit too dressed up for everyday errands/ looking after a toddler. The Dior Rouge Dior Baume gives me that desired colour, but just looks so much more natural. The other great thing about it, is the fact that because it is a balm, it glides onto the lips so beautifully, leaving them feeling uber moisturised and pampered as well as with a gorgeous splash of colour. Selfridges describe the product as 'A natural lip treatment with couture colour', which I think is spot on. The Dior Rouge Dior Baume is a specially designed product combining a healthy glow and shine, which is created from the natural and nourishing lip-care ingredients, with an incredibly light and smooth texture as well as flawless staying power. I am seriously in love with this product, and will be looking to invest in another one from the extensive colour range - perhaps more of a natural nude next time..?
