I couldn’t look less wild here, could I? It’s astounding. I look a bit like one of those comedy secretary virgins in the movies – the one who always gets the guy at the end because it turns out that underneath the staid exterior is a vixen clawing to get out! Or something. Note the messy tendrils of hair, the glasses, the lack of any other makeup..
I was testing out lipsticks for an autumn post and one in particular caught my attention; “Wild” from Dior. It’s part of the Golden Jungle collection (see the amazing palette here) and so it’s limited edition. It looks brown in the stock image and it looks like a medium, shimmery brown in real life too. On the lips, though, it’s sheer and juicy and shiny – a neutral with a hint of gingery shimmer. I think it’s wonderful! A little more interesting and punchier than a nude shade and so easy to wear.
