Friday Favourite: Medieval

On my last Instagramming post here, you might have noticed a cheeky little Space.NK bag. I popped in a few days ago to grab a copy of their Christmas catalogue because mine never arrived through the post, and left with a couple of bits. My favourite has to be this lipstick from Lipstick Queen by Poppy King, in Medieval. There's a range of lipsticks but this one stood alone and caught my attention because of the colour of the packaging...I'm a sucker for how things look and this deep oxblood colour struck me instantly. The lipstick itself is just as amazing. Medieval is a shade described as a red that can be worn by anyone and while I can't vouch for everyone else, I have to say I absolutely love it. It's not a bright post box red, more a red with pink undertones, but it still creates a bold lip and I found it very easy to wear. For a sheer lipstick, the colour pay off is great, and while it's not very long lasting, I found if I put on one coat, then powdered my lips before applying a second coat it stayed longer. It doesn't dry out the lips and has a subtle shine. I've been wearing this with a subtle smoky eye for evenings out and loving it!

  2. Hey Elle!

    Really enjoyed this post - to my shame I have never been in a Space NK but you have inspired me to finally do so!

    So pleased to see you've been posting recently : )!
