Gift Giving 2013: Luscious Lipsticks

Posted by on Dec 17, 2013

It’s hard to believe we’ve hit the count down to the final weeks of 2013 and days until Christmas.

If you’re still looking for Christmas gifts (I am!), a classic lipstick is one that never goes out of style. With Old Hollywood and Great Gatsby influences that dominated 2013, a high-end lipstick is the perfect way to spoil someone who loves lipstick and indulgent packaging.

Here are three of my favourites for 2013 for staying power, formula and of course the bullet-case:

Once you’ve decided on brands, the biggest challenge is getting the shade right! When buying makeup as a gift you’re better off shopping in-store than online.  Engage the help of the counter makeup artists and go in prepared. Show them a photo of the gift recipient (preferably taken in natural light). It’s much easier than describing what she looks like! The makeup artist will then be able to suggest a range of colours that are more likely to suit her.

Happy shopping!
