Lipstick Queen launches
This month sees the launch of Metals from Lipstick Queen. Poppy King, The Lipstick Queen herself, has created three metallic lipsticks just in time for the Christmas festivities.

Also coming soon in February next year are Vesuvius Liquid Lips, six liquid lipsticks (£22) with high level pigmentation that take their name from the famous volcano as the consistency is not dissimilar to molten lava. Colours from Red and Blush to Candy and Coral are thick, shiny and disco-diva.
Paperself on the silver screen

Priced at £12.50.
Max Factor Excess Intensity Eyes
