To finish our Lipstick Week I’ve decided to feature my current top 3 lipsticks and share the top 3 that are on my wish list.

Described as the new-generation lacquer stick which are as easy to apply as it is to wear. You get colour and comfort of a lip balm, it also promised about 6 hours of wear. Dior lipsticks are amazing so I expect a lot from this one. There are tonnes of shades to choose from, even a blue one.
