It’s a matte finish and therefore can emphasise chapped lips so do load up on balm before.
We find it’s best applied with a brush so it doesn’t drag.

story of Pinky, one of the many small town girls who come to the city for higher studies. But one particular hot and sultry monsoon evening continues to haunt me. I could never fathom whether the change was for the better or for the worse. Thats all the village had to offer by way of education. She had short hair, a clear complexion and a very feminine gait. She sported jeans and salwar kameez with equal ease.
It is based on actual incidents from real life and provide an insight into the conflicts, dilemmas and contradictions thatrage in their minds. Though a rustic, my father gave in to my mothers wishes that Pinky thats what they call me should go to a college in the nearby town and stay in the hostel. The only time she unwittingly revealed her background was when during an animated conversation she would momentarily switch to the rural dialect.
We found it suits blondes as well as brunettes, which is unusual for a darker shade. Dior Diorific Lipstick in Diva: £25.65, Escentual Dior’s lipsticks have that fabulously retro, slightly floral scent that reminds me of my mother's lipsticks when I was a child.
The shade is remarkably vibrant and long-lasting considering how light and hydrating it feels to apply, and also gets top marks for being most true-to-colour in the stick as it is on your skin. Mac Lipstick in Ruby Woo: £15.50, Debenhams This classic, reliable, Marilyn-esque red regularly features in red lippy halls of fame and is easily our most worn shade.
The next morning, I was to leave with my father by the first bus for the town. The prospects of leading a life on my own, howsoever sheltered in a hostel, thrilled me. Instantly, I heard a girl behind me say ": Obviously, it couldnt be anything else". The first signs of change came when one by one we stopped carrying desi ghee to the mess.
