Simply Lippy Challenge Day 342 | IsaDora Lip Desire Sculpting Lipstick in Shade 66, Mulberry

Mulberry; a word that brings sweetness to my ears when it comes to lipstick! I’m sure most of my regular readers already know how much I adore a berry lip, and today’s lipstick choice is no exception.

I first tried an IsaDora lippy a few months back in the most stunning warm red shade, Loving Red, which I loved for so many reasons but mainly, because of the insanely good pigment.

Today’s lippy, though from a different range, has equally good pigment with brilliant colour pay off. The shade is bold, rich and just gorgeous, and I absolutely loved wearing it for my girls Christmas day and night out today.

The formula is creamy so it applies and blends very well, and though my lips are quite dry and cracked at the moment, the colour didn’t flake or drag at all.

It kept my lips feeling soft and smooth while I wore it, and while I did have to reapply it after dinner, the lasting power was still pretty good regardless.

The finish is a satin finish and because of that, I also loved the slight shine it brought to my lips during the day.

For me, it’s the perfect party lippy shade for the silly season and I’ll definitely be wearing it again in the future.

Handbags. Do I even need to go on? I don’t think there are many women out there who don’t love a pretty handbag and I’m no exception.

Depending on my mood I flit between oversize and mini, satchel and clutch, cross-body and over the shoulder, you name it – I’ve probably got a bag that fits your description!

I do, like all things, have my favourites however, and today that’s my Mulberry Alexa. It’s been a while since I’ve given my Alexa some love, but a friend of mine was recently talking about purchasing one for herself which made me realise, I hadn’t taken mine out to play in quite a while.

I bought this bag about five years ago now, and it is like my baby. I lusted after it for so long and when it finally became mine, my handbag life was complete (well for a while anyway!).

This is probably the most versatile bag I’ve ever had, as I’m sure all of you Alexa lovers out there would agree. The tan colour means it goes with pretty much everything I own, and the leather has worn incredibly well over the years, remaining as soft as it was when I first purchased it. It’s love what can I say…

And on that note, Alexa and I are off out, so Happy Friday. Hope it’s a great weekend all!
