I was very lucky to have the chance to model for Chrissy of Australia’s Lindy Charm School for Girls when she came to the NZ Craft and Quilt Show. Having been a long time fan of Chrissy’s work and knowledge that I jumped at the chance to meet her ,pick up some great styling tips and of course some of her products including her Essential Setting Lotion – more on that in another post.
The Lindy Charm Schools signature red lipstick retails for a very affordable $22 and comes in a classic black tube with the Lindy Charm School logo on it. Made in Canada, it contains soothing vitamin E to keep your lips hydrated.
Its no surprise that the perfect red lippy is the ultimate pinups dream and I think I may have found it! I’m going to compare Russian Red to M.A.C vintage classic “Ruby Woo” which I wear on a regular basis and use on my clients. “Ruby Woo” while long lasting and classic in colour leaves my lips incredibly dry ( high clay content ) and crumbles during the day.
Russian Red applied smoothly when placed atop of my already lip pencil lined lips. The colour is classic and after heading out for the morning, running a few errands including brunch it still looked great! I did not apply a sealant over the lipstick.
I attended an event that night and wore Russian Red again, did the quick kiss on hubby’s cheek and no transfer! This is the ultimate in hubby’s books as he normally shy’s away from my red lips, so a A++ in his books. Returning home after 5 hours ( two retouches during the night after wine ) my lips still held the lovely hue.
I thinks its fair to say that the Lindy Charm School Lipstick in Classic 1 Russian Red is my new personal favourite for my lips. I’m looking forward to using it on my clients at the next pamper parlor event and spreading some of that Russian Red charm!
