Lipstick-loving: Peach

Time for lipstick number three. I purchased this from Ruby and Millie with one of my £5 No 7/Ruby and Millie vouchers. I figured that as I always buy something from No 7 with my vouchers it was time to give Ruby and Millie some love too. Having never purchased anything from the brand before I decided to go for a lipstick. The brand has quite a different approach to lipsticks, a limited number of shades available in different finishes - the same shade varies a lot between the different finishes so it took me ages to decide on what to get. I eventually chose "Orange" in a cream finish. The cream finish is semi-sheer and feels soft and moisturising which makes it a great everyday lipstick.

The colour looks quite bright but when applied its much subtler. I'm not 100% sure about this, I think it may look better in the summer when I have a hint of a tan...the nude shade made me feel a bit washed-out, especially as I kept the rest of my make-up very simple (usual liquid liner and Clinique's High Lengths mascara). Maybe it will work better with stronger eye make-up.

Peach lipstick: yay or nay?

  2. I didn't even know Ruby and Millie do cosmetics, I always thought it was just the few brushes that they stock in my local boots! I think that is a really lovely colour on you, it will be gorge for summer! YAY! xxx

  3. I think this shade is lovely on you and it looks really nourishing, I find that a lot of lipsticks are drying on the lips x

  4. @ Ellen - thank you, I think I may start to wear it more now the spring weather is finally here!

    @ Hannah - I got it from a really big Boots store but I've heard that the whole range is being discontinued soon...the stand always looks really neglected so maybe it's not very popular.

    @ frilly-lace-knickers - thank you :) Yeah, this isn't drying at all as it's so sheer.

  6. I like it, it's a pretty summery colour! :D I have a couple of vouchers left and I had a look at my local Boots Ruby and Millie stand. There was hardly anything there apart from some nail polishes and they hadn't been touched for so long the polishes had separated! :/ It's a shame, because I've heard they have some nice lipsticks. I really like this colour on you :)

  7. @ Stefany - thank you. It does seem very spring appropriate!

    @ Gem - The Ruby and Millie counter I saw had everything for half priced but there was barely anything left and what they did have was also really old and dried out - not great! Hope you find something nice to spend your voucher on.

  8. That lippie is a beautiful colour.

    I have a similar skin tone to yourself, and I find that if I do a smoky brown eye, I can wear this shade of lippie a lot easier, and it doesn't wash me out :-). I also usually dress in neutrals, so it all goes together :-)

    Love and Bubbles xx

  16. I really like this colour, think the finish will look better in the summer (I find that too bright a colour looks too try hard!) but I am definitely loving it on you.. will have to try out R&M properly too :)
