Last week Debenhams reported roaring trade in its beauty hall as women cheer themselves up with a new lipstick or bottle of perfume.
Debenhams’ deputy chief executive, Michael Sharp, put the growth in trade down to the “lipstick effect” – when shoppers respond to recessionary times by reducing spending on expensive designer items but splurging on cheaper luxuries instead.
Lipsticks are a great way to treat yourself and make you instantly feel good.
Here’s a few of my favourites:
MAC Lipstick - Beauty Club Awards Winner
Chanel Rouge Coco Lipstick – Luxuriously creamy
Rouge Dior Lipstick – On-trend shades that give lips a punchy pop of colour
Rouge G de Guerlain Jewel Lipstick compact- Super-stylish packaging
Illamasqua Toxic Nature lipstick – In two hot shades to get you noticed
Clinique High Impact Lipstick – Great staying power
