There are three things, it seems, that women are on the search for at some point in their life – the perfect man, the perfect bag, and the perfect lipstick. You might be lucky enough to find the man (Ryan Gosling, duh) and the bag (it might just be out of your price range), but the perfect lipstick is always on the horizon, the perfect colour changes from season to season and will we ever find one that doesn't budge while you sip your latte?
Obviously, there are things in life more significant than the perfect lipstick – love, family, laughter, memories – but it’s one of those things that can make any dull day seem brighter. In hard economic times, it is a fact that lipstick sales go up because it is the one, affordable luxury item that women can count on even when times are tough.
The Perfect Lipstick came into fruition when my mum and I decided to take years worth of research, samples, and purchases and put it to good use. From when we lived together and now over Skype, we have always loved sharing our recent beauty buys, sneaky gifts with purchase (GWP), current loves, and make up mishaps with each other and now we’ve decided it’s time to share it with anyone who is interested.
We have a lot of great stuff to tell you about, but first I better tell you who we are (that's us up there ^). I’m Katherine; a 20-something living in Sydney. I work in television, spend too much time online, think cake and coffee is as great a combination as eye liner and mascara, and write a lifestyle blog called Through My Looking Glass.
My mum, Sue, will be co-writing this blog. She is a 50-something living in Brisbane, and she has taught me everything I know, she has the most intense lipstick collection I have ever seen, and never turns down free postage or a GWP.
Together, we plan on bringing you up to date reviews of our beauty and fashion purchases from two different age groups so be sure to come back and invite your mother or your daughter along too!
DISCLAIMER: We are self-confessed make up and beauty product junkies and we love sharing things we've bought and tried with you. From time to time we get sent products to try out but this will never affect our reviews. We will always include a disclaimer when a product has been gifted to us because we're all about being open and honest with our lovely readers! If you have any questions, please feel free to email us.
