A matt lip gloss? Isn’t that a contradiction in terms? It is, but it hasn’t stopped Autograph from bringing out a clever liquid lipstick that has the lightness of gloss but none of the stickiness. It’s feather light on the lips, but give an opaque colour that you tend not to get with gloss. The two shades are really, really pretty – don’t be fooled by the name Antique Rose; this is a pinky coral colour that looks blinding with a tan. The other shade, Blossom, is infinitely flattering, too. I’ve given it a test run, and it really does look matt – not flat matt; there’s a tiny bit of sheer in there, too – and can testify it doesn’t taste nasty or dry out the lips. And, wonder of wonders, your hair won’t stick in it either! Bliss. 7.50 from Marks & Spencer Autograph from mid-June.
PS Obviously it isn’t blue -a blip on blogger has turned it this colour!! Will post a proper pic when problem is resolved.
