Long-time readers will know that I am a huge fan of berry and plum vampy lipsticks and I have quite few but I’ve picked this one up not only because of the shade but also because of the name. Long story short – Transylvania will always have a special place in my heart, although I have been there only several times.
But, back to the lipstick…
I really, really love it. As the name suggests, it is a

Tom Ford beauty started with lipsticks, and they are still the most covetable item from his line. Luxurious packaging, TF logo, beautiful texture and flattering shades. If £37/$50 price point is something you would consider – it is an amazing “investment”. My friends are
I am sorry, that there has been a lack of updates, I have been very sick and stayed in bed for a week. Since there was no work or blog for me for several days, I am kind of excited to be back.
It is summer and the weather is hot (in most places), so I personally don’t like wearing tonnes of makeup, not that I ever do that, and for me summer associates with a bright lipstick. And since I know, that I am not alone, I would like to share the newest releases.
There is a new release from Laura Mercier – Rouge Nouveau Weightless Lip Color.
These are a wax-free lipsticks which are promised to be long-lasting and nourishing.
There are 15 shades divided unto three groups:
- Matte: Muse (brick red), Myth(plum
I had to get the new Kate Moss matte lipsticks for Rimmel which are new for Autumn. I really love the original Kate Moss lipsticks so had high hopes for these.
I have got the berry 107 shade (surprise-surprise). And, oh my goodness, it is awesome!
First of all, the design is great, you can never go wrong with red and black, in my opinion.
They go on smoothly, the colour applies evenly and opaque with only one coat. Although this is a matte lipstick, it does not look very flat and chalky on the lips and does not dry them out. The staying power is decent, as well.
