‘What did it do to deserve such a title?’ I hear you cry. Lipstick in Shard is the perfect berry shade for Winter 2014 and will suit your wardrobe for the AW14 season. This lipstick is also very popular amongst customers and staff, so we feel it earns it’s place as the first product of the month!

How to apply Lipstick in Shard:Screen Shot 2014-11-04 at 16.13.56

– Wear Lipstick in Shard with a Lip Pencil to keep it beautifully locked in place. We recommend our Lip Colouring Pencil in Severity which is a red grape shade that will compliment it ever so elegantly.

– Apply using our Lip Brush all over the lips. Blot onto a tissue and reapply a second layer.

– If a gloss is preferred, wear with our Sheer Lipgloss in Tantrum, which will this matte Lipstick a pretty shine.

Skin – Berry tones on the lips can enhance any red on the face so be sure to use your matching shade of Skin Base Foundation and concealer.  your cheeks with a subtle peach shade, try Velvet Blusher in Flirtatious.

Nails – Go very AW14 and wear a Nude colour like Nail Varnish in Monogamous – no longer a Spring/Summer look, nudes are here to stay! Jazz it up with a glittery or coloured ring/accent nail.
