I am writing this post sipping iced tea and lying down on a chaise lounge on the side of the pool, enjoying my summer holidays in South Italy.
How on earth I will come back to hard and cold work life, I still don't know.
A quick post today, just to share the red lipstick I took with me this time.
Every single time I pack my beauty essentials for my holidays, I make sure there are a nude, a bright pink and a red lipsticks.
This time I chose this Collistar Rossetto Mille Baci 55 Rossi Roma from the Antonio Marras collection.
This collection was released last year but some bits are still around eBay and Amazon.
Collistar is one of the most famous Italian make up brands and it really deserves more attention from bloggers and media, IMHO.
This lipstick is soft, creamy but not too tick on the lips.
With just one application the deep bright red stands out giving a brilliant and intense effect.
I normally apply it straight from the bullet but when I bought it, the MUA in store gave me a little make over, using a flat lip brush to work better the texture of this lipstick and I loved the effect, I must force myself to play a bit more with my basically brand new lip brushes..
The packaging is posher than posh, a glass (yes, glass, you read it right) sultry case with a black sketch from Antonio Madras and the brand logo on the bullet.
Here are pictures and swatches for you, I hope I made you curious enough to go and check this brand, I bet you will like it.
Speak to you soon, now let's go jumping in the pool.
