When I was a young girl, the best part of the new September school year were new clothes and new pencil crayons.
Now, in this, my 57th year,( I actually had to use Google calculator to figure this out since I never think about my age), I marked the seasonal shift with a new lipstick.
It came by way of an Instagram recommendation from the beautiful jewellery designer, Mia Matovic (#miamatovic). I watched her Get Ready with Me video and inquired what her gorgeous lipstick shade was. Her answer: Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick, Crème Rose Velvet #130

Mini ‘get ready with me’ featuring my current favorites—the Rope studs. My idea initially was to do a longer IGTV version with all the details, but let’s face it there is no longer version of putting on a BB cream, lipstick and blush 😄 This is what I do unless it’s for some rare special event—very basic and minimal. But I NEVER leave the jewelry at home 😊
Delightfully, it turns out to be a dupe for my favourite lipstick colour: Charlotte Tilbury’s Bond Girl ($36). But even better, Rose Velvet is a dreamy (I meant to type creamy but I think dreamy is too good a descriptor to change), and glowy formulation, not matte as Tilbury’s is. It’s hydrating with Vitamin E and Avocado Oil but isn’t sticky or tacky, so you can wear it all day, every day. I’ve switched all my makeup to cream-based products so anything with glow is now my holy grail. On price, colour, and formulation, this lipstick is a winner!
The Super Lustrous Lipstick line isn’t called The World’s More Iconic Lipstick for no reason.
