Time for another Lipstick Love ... or rather A Lipstick That I Love.
This one is by the make up artist Barbara Daly and was purchased from the cosmetic range she created for Tescos. It's called Bloom and is a lovely fresh pink colour. I have to be careful with pink because not all pinks like me but this one is great because the colour veers towards a deeper pink rather than a pale one. I usually reel it out in the Spring and Summer months mostly because it goes with the lighter colours that I tend to wear but it does also look good with black, which is a bonus because there are weeks when I wear nothing but black (I'm a lazy dresser).
This lipstick glides on and is not tacky or drying, moreover it is moisturising but not in a sticky balm kind of way and I love it because it fades rather than leaving a delightful outline round the lips. Having said that, I've just remembered that I did buy another one in this Barbara Daly range called Spice, nice neutral pale brown but it literally lasted five minutes on my lips and then was gone, which I was disappointed about because I really wanted to love it as much as Bloom. I don't know where it is now, probably at the bottom of a handbag like most of my other lipsticks!
I've actually got two of these in the same colour because I lost one (scatty) so I bought a replacement, then found the original in a handbag I hardly ever use. It's actually good that I've got two because as far as I can see this range has been discontinued in favour of Barbara's newer range Bd Trade Secrets. If you go online www.tesco.com and search 'beauty' you can check out all the colours and of course, they are also sold the beauty section of the larger Tesco stores. There are a couple of colours that I think I might try and the price is good too at £5.99. While I'm sorry I won't be able to replace this one I do have two so it will take me a while to use them up and I definitely will try the Bd Trade Secrets ones.
