I have been meaning to blog about this for ages - but I am a lazy moobag. I have had the pics and the thought - just not the typing out mentality. Until now.
I won a beauty of a prize from Retro Chick - a Besame Lipstick a la What Katie Did! Ravishing RC had reviewed the product and I had been erring on the side of parting with some cash for this lipstick. And then I won one! Huzzah's and Hurrah's!
I had a choice of colour - but decided to go with the Besame Red on the basis that this is what Fleur de Guerre models on the site, and like her, I have dark hair. When I had collected it from the post office - (as I was not home when it arrived, and there is a sticker on the packaging to tell the postie to leave a card, which although a hassle for me on a Saturday morning, adds extra security that your paid for goods shant go walkabout.) - I could not wait to open it. In the car. Oh the glamour!
The lovely smell that wafted around is something that I cannot quite put my finger on. But is it luscious. I didn't know whether to slick it or lick it.
Now - like Retro Chick - I had an issue with the tip. I am used to modern day tips, which I have been using for many a moon. But, I really struggled with how to use this. And the result, for me, was less than pleasing on the first application. If I had paid for this, I would have been wholly disappointed. And in a grump.
But. I am nothing if not persevering. On second application, I got a bit better, and I am sure that the more I practice, the more it shall give me the lip shape that I like. I did find the formula a little drying - but it's staying power is better than most and it does not bleed.
So - here's to winning fairly fab free stuff!!
