First up is the Burberry Lip Charm. It comes in a metallic pewter shade and it’s huge! The tassle is chunky and the lip cube is quite weighty but I really do like the fact that they’ve super-sized the ‘charm’ element because it’s going to look good on any bag. Actually, I’m pretty sure it could double up as a weapon.. I would not want to be hit in the face with that cube! The gloss inside looks pink but actually has very little pigment so it’s a suit-all shade in the barest of neutrals. It’s £70, so a little on the pricy side, and launches in November.
Next, is By Terry Intensive Renewing Balm. It really is the most delicate of balms, far more like a gloss really, and it is shot through with pink and gold shimmer. Personally, that’s a major no-no – I am not a glittery lip fan – but adding this over just about any shade lipstick will give the prettiest of sparkles without distracting from the colour. The balm has no colour other than the merest irridescent frosting. It is scented with a very light rose aroma.
It’s £40 but if it is any consolation, the formula contains 24 carat pink gold. Find it at SpaceNK from November.
Finally, the Lanolips Jet Setter Travel Pack. I hate the packaging but adore the contents – this is worth snapping up just for handbag essentials but if you are using them for travel, all three products will see you through customs without breaking any millage rules. At £14.99, it’s a snip. Find it HERE
