I have a shopping problem. I am aware of this and currently trying to shift my focus from makeup to clothes – you won’t believe the state of some of my jeans – My biggest problem with shopping is that I constantly buy products that I don’t use or even look at for months on end. Take Makeup Forever Rouge Natural Lipstick in N8 (RRP £16.95), I bought this back in June at the IMATS and I’m only getting round to wearing it now!! I actually need to do myself a favour and go on a spending ban so I can finally get through all the unused and unswatched products currently clogging up my room.


I’m not saying that I regret buying this lipstick – never the issue – Warm Brown or N8 is an amazing nude brown shade that should get more love than I have previously given it. It has a moisturising and very creamy formula that hydrates my lips while giving it a very soft sheen. It’s like a satin lipstick with a lustre finish. Formulated with cupuacu butter to keep lips supple & hydrated, and a blend of natural waxes that fix the pigment to the lips ensuring stability & long lasting colour, this Rouge Artist Lipstick is definitely ranking high on my nude lipstick list.

I remember buying this  thinking that I don’t actually have any dark brown nudes in my lipstick collection  . . . at that time anyway but I think I might start stocking up on more dark nude shades as they are just so easy to work with.
