Raspberry Crush

As the weather cools down here in London, I find myself reaching increasingly for the one colour of makeup. Raspberry, claret, cranberry and oxblood. I can't seem to get enough.  

These are the products I am using on high-rotation until I get over this little obsession of mine. 


Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Crush - this is my second purchase of this product as I used it all summer long in the colour Honey. I love the texture, the staying power and the subtle amount of colour it gives. I also love the price, hello Β£7.99 ... You can buy this from Superdrug (UK) and Priceline (Aus) for $17.95.

Kiko Velvet Matt Lipstick in Cherry Red (609) - this was an accidental purchase as I wandered past the Kiko store last week after vowing not to buy any makeup. It was Β£6.90 and a luscious colour. I was powerless. You can buy this online here if you are based in the UK. For a list of countries that they ship to go here. Unfortunately Australia is not currently on their list.

Pixi Beauty Sheer Cheek Gel in Rosy. This colour can look a little scary in the tube but it goes on in such a sheer way that it gives the look of a lovely natural flush. Β£12.25 from Beauty Bay with free international shipping.

Maybelline Colour Tattoo in Metallic Pomegranate - rusty tones can be scary to apply around the eyes. You need to get the colour just right or the results can be pretty awful. This gel-cream eye shadow has a brownish undertone which is key in avoiding the 'i've been crying all night' look. It is a shade you need to try. Β£4.99 from Superdrug (UK) and Priceline (Aus) for $11.95.
