Beauty favourites: moisture-packed lip sheers

The best Sheer moisturising lipsticks from YSL Chanel Givenchy Burberry Dior

There seems to be a huge push for multi-tasking moisturising lipsticks that let you decide if you want them sheer or high impact.

Yes, my fingers are still encased in The North Face extreme weather gloves. But! Blossom has been spotted on the trees of West London and it’s still daylight at 5.30pm. So that surely necessitates an evaluation of the new-in spring offerings, no?

On my radar at this time of year are shouty knits for layering, such as this colourful crew neck from Jil Sander or the crafty applique number by Christopher Kane. (more…)
