I remember the color of my very first lipstick, but what I remember the most is the scent. I was passing through a local department store when shiny black tubes at the Chanel counter drew my attention promising the glamour and sophistication that I didn’t know I was looking for. I was making swatches of the different tones of nudes and pink on the back of my hand when suddenly, I became aware of the fragrance of roses which at the time I thought was interesting and pretty cool. I think my lipstick addiction with a touch of scent started then and there.
Lipstick Fever by Juliette has a gun focuses on the historic notes often used in lipsticks such as Iris, Violet absolute, and Raspberry. It also contains woody notes such as Patchouli, Cedarwood, and a touch of vanilla to give it a little refinement and to echo the leather of the handbag so often inseparable from it. A beautiful composition, ultimately feminine and sexy.

PS: As a true lipstick fetishist THIS is a must-read about the history of lipstick and in particular the color red.
