Beauty: the pale lip




I've been on the hunt for the perfect pale orange lipstick for what feels like FOREVER. I bought a great bright orange one last summer but I'm after something matte and a bit softer. Everything I've seen is either too bright, too red or too glossy and it's driving me mad! I'm starting to think this lipstick just doesn't exist. Have you seen this elusive lippy? Answers on a postcard please.

Anyway, I was on hunt number 27 for the perfect orange lipstick a few days ago when I came across 'Whimsical' in Toppers. Swabbed on my hand, it looked like I'd found exactly what I'd been looking for...then I put it on my lips and it was more pale peach than pale orange. DAMN; the search continues. 

Having said that, I've fallen in love with this shade so maybe it's a blessing in disguise. I normally bypass pink/peachy shades and go for something more bold but I actually think this could be my new summer fave. Until I find that non-existent pale orange one that is...
