A few weeks ago a little surprise came in the mail. My response was:
Was it a lipstick? Was it a lip gloss? No, it was super paste. Or should I say, a super stain? Whatever it was, this was one beauty item that needed a thorough going over. So I put on my thinking cap to work out who is the biggest lipstick junkie I know. Who could really get into the nitty, gritty of reviewing this lip product?
I needed someone with the combined forces of lipstick knowledge and strong opinions. Boy did I find the ideal guest writer. Lisa Ginnane is a HUGE lipstick wearer. A few years ago when I worked in publishing I would glance in her office and see her dotting at her lips. It was brilliant. I really admire those people who can rock out lipstick. Enjoy her post.
Product: Pout Paste.
Colour: Love Bites.
Price: $12.95 from Priceline, Kmart, Big W and selected pharmacies. Or shop online.
Why We Love It: The colour is AWESOME. I wore this to a Mexican-themed party (hence the sombrero picture) and a few times to work, and every time I had positive comments on the colour. It also has staying power in the colour department. BUT… only provided you don’t eat, drink or kiss while you’re wearing it. As soon as you go anywhere near so much as a glass of water, the Pout Paste will disappear all over it. Slightly annoying, but I don’t mind re-touching a few times throughout the day/night. As a side note, the product smells really nice too.
Verdict (Yay or Nay): I would say yay for the right occasion. I wouldn’t wear the Pout Paste on an everyday basis, but for the fantastic colour alone this will become a staple in my lip product arsenal.

Below are pics of Kate and Emma wearing Pout Paste in Berry Nice Kiss. It’s interesting to see the colour contrasts. Kate has olive skin and dark hair while Emma is pale and blonde. We think it suits us both 🙂
