This week the Lipstick League wants to know: when you really want to pamper yourself (as we all should do from time to time!), which products do you reach for?
Maybe it's because I skimped on the lotion last night, but right now my skin is determined to answer the Lipstick League's question itself. Body oil, it says firmly. And exfoliant – give me a nice scrub with a scrubby cloth or a nice sugar-based concoction, and slather me in fragrant oil once you've patted off after the shower. How about that mental-vacation Tom Ford Portofino Neroli you've had tucked away for ages and ages? Love that.
Geez my skin is bossy. But I'm down with the plan. And later I'll pull out a fancy lippy from Giorgio Armani or YSL or Chanel or Charlotte Tilbury or Dior. Something from my special-occasion stash. Because a November Monday will feel better if I have a luxury lip colour or balm in hand.
