Sometimes, when things are a bit crappy, you just need to treat yourself. And nothing is more of a treat than a beautiful, totally unnecessary, lipstick.

I’ve wanted something from Charlotte Tilbury for an age; who wouldn’t with that rose gold packaging? I swatched a load of the Hot Lips lipsticks a while ago and fell in love with the texture- it is a really rich, satin matte. Then when I saw one had my name on it, I knew that would be the one for me.

One rubbish day at work and one impulse purchase later, this pretty thing is all mine. The perfect bright red, it has just enough of a cool orange undertone for it to feel like a ‘cool girl’ red rather than a sexy red. Plus, everything from the packaging to the shape of the bullet makes me happy, which makes it totally worth the £23.

Honestly? I feel better already!
