Tangerine Dream

Hello there beauties!

My, it's been a while. *slaps wrist*

I've been meaning to blog about orange/coral lipstick for sooo long now, (I know most of you are probably completly over this by now, but I still heart it, especially with matching nails!). I've just been rather busy of late, what with a new job (huzzah) and various other things going on in my life.

On Friday night I celebrated my sisters 31st birthday, rounders in the park and drinks in Camden.

Saturday was spent sunning outside with the neighbours, and cupcake baking in the evening for said sisters birthday...

Sunday was family lunch at The Spaniards Inn followed by a cream tea on Hampstead Heath... lovely jubly :)

 Hope you all got out in the sunshine? It's still scorching here!

So, the orange lipstick trend is not just for models and celebs, oh no no no!
 If you want a bold lip colour and are sick of classic red why not try a slick of tangerine orange :)

This is such a great look for those of you with a golden complexion who like to brighten up natural make-up. Never fear though, pale beauties also look stunning rocking this shade, why not follow suit from January Jones?

I tried Barry M "coral". This is such a steal at only £4.49, and the colour is a matte tangerine perfect, so a round of applause goes to Barry M for coming up with this one. I love this lipstick and I love this price. 

It's really creamy and has good lasting power too. I think its a really wearable shade of for the handbag ladies :) I'd love to be able to say that this didn't dry out my lips at all, but unfortunetly it did after an hour or so. It's hard for me to find a lipstick that doesn't if I'm honest. So maybe that wouldn't be a negative for the rest of you beauties.

So c'mon beauties, big up the Barry M lipstick love!!
