Yeah: we’re supposed to be wearing berries and wines and deep, dark red tones this time of year – Emma showed us some really lush-looking ones last week – but hey. I don’t like to go with the flow, me. 

Pink lips at J JS Lee at LFW SS14

I reckon if you want to wear pink in autumn then you bloody well should. Big again as a trend for SS14, the models walking at J JS Lee’s recent LFW show (above) pulled off this fuchsia lip – and I’m loving it.

Just some of the many, maaaahhhnnyyyy I own, this here is Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in Anarchy​, Stila Afterglow Lip Colour in Electric Pink, and Giorgio Armani Lip Maestro in Eccentrico.

Pink Lipsticks swatches

And swatches: top down we have Urban Decay, Giorgio Armani and Stila.

Playing faves, right now it’s the Armani that’s tugging at my heartstrings the most. A creamy, fully opaque liquid lipstick that’s almost neon in its intensity, it dries to a semi-matte finish and is just WOO HOO! It’s part of the brand’s Christmas collection so look for it in December for €26. Trust: if you pucker up for pink, you will want it.
