Getting us excited this week is young brand Ella Rose. Begun in March this year, the brand is the brainchild of dreamer Berilyn Wobil, a born-and-bred Londoner who drew inspiration from her time as a stylist and working in the beauty departments of glossy magazine to create her own line of liquid lipsticks. Her Lip Fun Liquid Lipsticks are cruelty-free, pigmented and comfortable while providing bold matte pigment, with each shade drawing its name from pop culture references. Even better, they’re a bargain at £6! We’ve teamed up with Ella Rose to give Warpaint readers an exclusive discount of 10% – simply enter the code WARPAINT at the checkout. The code expires on the 19th August 2016. Enjoy!

This entire collection comes together, with everything included for £48 – we imagine it won’t be around for long.
