Are you up for the lipstick challenge?

By Victoria Riedl


Last week I refrained from telling you about Cat Deeleys tangerine-tinged red lips and nails combo on BBC’s So You Think You Can Dance, for fear I was becoming TV-celebrity obsessed. But then Leona Lewis (who I have never given much thought to) came out on Saturday nights episode looking fabulous with slicked back hair and, yes, tangerine-tinged red lips and nails. Wow!

I have always been a heavy eyes / nude lips kinda gal, but I am inspired. From Cat’s blonde hair to Leona’s milky coffee skin, this vivid colour seems to suit everyone. It’s a brave statement but looks fresh and very now. Word on the beauty street is that sales of red lipstick have soared in Selfridges so I dare you to join the lipstick brigade and try the shade at a beauty counter this week. I am game if you are. I am expecting it to be a bit of shock at first but I am going to persist for the sake of a new, brighter, sexier me!
