I lately decided to try to wear some kind of statement lip almost every day – except, well, today, when I got a bit heavy-handed with the eyeliner instead. Anyway, in my travels I’ve been testing out a bright, brick red from No7 (nice but slightly drying), a fluo pink from Nars (nice but really doesn’t last) and a YSL lip colour that broke roughly the third time I used it, although I hear that’s a common problem.

Anyway, the winner out of all of these colours for moisturisation and staying power, is – weirdly – COVERGIRL’s LipPerfection, in Embrace, seeing as you asked.

It’s quite purple when it first goes on, and then fades to a luscious fuchsia after around half an hour. I love it, and next time I go Stateside I’ll be stocking up on several of these beauties in varying shades! Serious thumbs up.

By the by, when I say it lasts, I’m not exaggerating; yesterday I applied after breakfast, and it was still there, albeit slightly diluted, after lunch. I reapplied once, and when I got to the Best in Beaut.ie awards last night, people still asked what shade I was wearing.
