creme de la femme



On Friday I went to the new Westfield Shopping Centre at Stratford on the premise that I was to start my Christmas shopping. Well, unsurprisingly I failed on all accounts and didn’t buy any presents; the temptation of Forever 21 and MAC was far too strong! I had six mac empties so took my chance whilst I was there to back to mac and get myself a brand new lippie. I had previously thought I would choose a dark vampy colour like Rebel or Up the Amp but I was rather taken with Creme de la Femme, a frosty pinky-purple laced with gold shimmer.

Creme de la Femme, with its berry pink colour, golden flecks and frosted finish is so pretty, but also quite underrated. I certainly hadn’t really given it much consideration before now. In the tube it looked a little too ‘mature’ for me, but actually, I am rather smitten with my choice, so much so that creme de la femme could be the creme de la creme of my lipstick collection!
I hope you have all had lovely weekends.

    Looks nice against your skin tone. I still haven't been to Stratford Westfield yet …one day. Meh.

    I'm sure I have six MAC empties somewhere or a couple of MAC items I no longer want. Time for another visit.

    I bought a lipstick yesterday through back 2 mac too and posted about it too… honestly a coincidence! You really suit a frost… but frosts look awful on me shame as this is such a pretty colour! I'm off to Westfields next tuesday but didn't realise there was a forever 21, so excited now!!! xxx

    Oooh, that is a lovely colour! Not sure how it'd look on me, though, dark coloured lipsticks seem to be the only ones that suit my skin tone! I think this one's pretty festive.
