As many of you will have already realised, I'm slightly obsessed with red lips and my red-lipstick-buying habit is showing no signs of disappearing. My latest little arrival was Lush's new lip paint, Ambition. Firstly, I have to say that the name of this product pretty much sums me up. I'm always ambitious - if not a little bit too ambitious. I have my head in the sky most of the day and will stop at nothing to secure a job in fashion PR. "You may say I'm dreamer, but I'm not the only one"...I couldn't help, but add the latter end of that sentence when I wrote it. If you haven't heard John Lennon Imagine, I suggest you Google it, although I'm pretty sure 99% of the population has done. A lot of my friends call me a dreamer, but to me, it's ambition. I know what I want and I'm always trying to figure out my way to get there. I want to prove that my dreams are a reality.
Red lipstick always ignites that confidence within me and when I'm doing a presentation or need a confidence boost, red lip paint is my best friend and that's the simple reason why I can't get enough of it. If you haven't tried Lush's new set of liquid lipsticks, you have definitely been missing out. They are easy to apply, totally vegan and a little goes a very long way. Ambition is such a powerful colour and highly pigmented, the picture does not do it justice.
The best aspect of the Lush Ambition is the fact that one little pot can give you a variety of colours. Simply apply more if you're wanting an instantly bright colour or apply very little if you're wanting something a little more subtle. If you want a softened colour, you can apply the Kiss Lip Gloss. The kiss lipgloss is probably one of my favourite new products - it never leaves my handbag. The product tastes like sweeties and adds a beautiful pink glow to your pout. It's perfect for those days where you're wanting to avoid heavy lip coverage and you're looking for something quite natural. The product also includes fair trade Shea Butter to keep your lips moisturised.
My only wish is that I had a Lush store closer to home, as it takes over an hour for me to get to the nearest one. Although, it could easily be a blessing in disguise, as I would probably spend half of my uni breaks shopping in there and dreaming of all things sweet scented.
For all of you unlucky ones like myself, there's always the Lush online store, which never closes and sells all the products you could wish for. Why not pop a little bit of Ambition into your shopping cart? I know I will be doing when it runs out.
