A friend brought to light recently an item of makeup that I thought had perished with my childhood a long time ago, the original Mood Magic Colour Changing Lipstick. I’d forgotten how much fun this was when the bright green turns to pink on your lips, simple pleasures. Make up is ever evolving and there are now better formulas and versions of past favourites, its not quite the same as your original Revlon Suede Lipstick but trust me, there are far better options. If a matte, suede lip is your thing try the NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil or if you’re more Linda Evangelista circa early 90s with a caramel shimmer try Estee Lauder’s Pure Colour Lipstick in Sugar Honey. Go old school and add a gloss with classic Lancome Juicy Tubes. Barry M Dazzle Dust has been around since 1982 and at some point everyone has had one of those little round pots that covers every surface the minute the lid comes off. Fun to use but if you want something a bit less pearlescent head to MAC for their Matte Pigment or go high shine with their Reflects glitters. White eyeliner is still a treacherous area, try using it in the waterline with liquid liner for a 60’s style graphic eye but anywhere else should be strongly reconsidered. Just think more Twiggy and Penelope Tree as opposed to backing dancers from early 2000 and use a creamy pencil such as Shu Uemura’s Eye Light Pencil in White. Hair mascara falls into my category of the Colour Changing Lipstick, so bad but so good. Your heart will yearn for the original Stargazer Hair Mascaras in every colour under the sun but for a more up to date look try Kevin Murphy Colour Bug. So easy it wipes on and wipe off. Bring back your inner child.
