Juicy Red Lips for Summer

The beauty brands/fashion houses may all be bringing out their autumn collections, but here in the UK summer is only just kicking in. One thing I love to wear during the summer is a really fresh, juicy red lip – and I was desperately hunting around for a gloss that was just the right texture (something like a Lancome Juicy Tube) with enough pigment to be a proper red, that didn’t cost as much as – well, a Juicy Tube. My search was in vain.

Until I opened my cupboard and realised that I had it all along! My YSL Volupte Sheer Candy in no. 6, a gorgeous red, with the sheer juicy effect but with enough colour to balance out natural summer eyes. It is exactly what I was looking for – I’m so silly 🙂

That’s the danger of having more glosses/lipsticks/makeup in general than I really need (but we all know I can’t help myself)!
