Lipstick Armani in 400 
I hope everyone enjoyed the weekend and made the most of the sales! I popped into Brown Thomas over the weekend to pick up a few gifts while making the most of the 20% discount on offer. If you follow my Instagram  account you might have already seen that I was sporting the lipstick featured in the blog today. While at the Armani make up counter I was immediately attracted to the rich shade of red of this lipstick. The story goes that Giorgio was strolling around a park and saw a beautiful red rose which he brought back to his chemists requesting that exact shade be emulated in a lipstick. Allegedly the end product is 400 or as its alternatively know 'The Red'. Given the fact it costs €28, I think I was allowed a little shriek handing over my card! However the phrase "you get what you pay for"comes to mind after wearing it for the day. Even as I type this piece, it is still clinging to my lips after only one application this morning. It really is no surprise Vogue consider it to be one of the best selling  lip shades currently on the market. I think its my new favourite Christmas accessory !!
