Goodbye Masks And Hello New Lipstick

Thank you Uncle Cyril for allowing us a reprieve from mask-wearing! A slick of bright lipstick used to be the oldest trick in the book to cheer oneself up.

The Lipstick Index

Did you know that The Lipstick Index is a term coined by Leonard Lauder himself that he used to describe the increased sales of lipstick during the 2000s recession. Why? Because a sweep of red lippie is guaranteed to perk up a mood and a complexion in equal measure – and thus the uptick in sales seen in times of upheaval – whether economic or war-time.

All-new updates

Throw in two years of hiding behind a mask and we’ve all but given up on the pick-me-up potential of a brightly coloured lippie. Until now, that is… There’s a slew of lip products that feel indulgent to apply and even the new matte formulas are creamier than you’d remember and the fat crayons are super easy to apply and also hold their colour without any transfer.
