If there is one product that lifts my spirits and my looks, it’s lipstick. Easily my favourite makeup item. And what’s better than one lipstick? Three!
Code8 is the luxury beauty brand that has a very cleverly curated selection of flattering makeup products, created using a unique formulation for fast application and long-lasting staying power. The products are of exceptional quality, affordable, yet gloriously luxurious. If you love Hourglass, Pat McGrath and Victoria Beckham Beauty, you will undoubtably love Code8.
Code8, together with their Brand Ambassador, Alexa Chung, have created the All-Day Soiree Lipstick Trio. This limited-edition collection of three universally flattering long-lasing lipsticks is this years must have Christmas gift. The Lipstick Trio are packaged in a travel-friendly, reusable, navy velvet jewellery box, and features one creamy Colour Brilliance Lipstick and Two Matte Velour Lipsticks. They are all highly pigmented and long-lasting shades, that you can wear from dawn to dusk.
Affogato – the perfect nude with a matte finish that still looks and feels hydrating, with a smooth velvety texture and long-lasting effect.
Peach Dream – a luxurious, creamy smooth lipstick with a satin finish that works with every outfit and perfectly finishes a daytime look.
Pillar Box – the all-time glamourous red that’s perfect for the evening. The specially balanced mix of waxes keep the lips hydrated, avoiding any flaking or bleeding.
Alexa Chung said “These are the three shades I most frequently use day-to-day. I love the neutral beige taupe shade as it’s effortless but done. Then there’s a salmony peach which is a perfect retro sixties kitten vibe, and the pillar box red is my secret weapon. I wear it whenever I’m tired or feeling lacklustre to brighten my mood and my face.”
When you purchase the exclusive Code8 All-Day Soiree Lipstick Trio, Code8 will donate 10% of the purchase price to The Womanity Foundation. This will fund 6 hours coding for a girl student in Afghanistan. By giving this gift of beauty you are helping to give another gift to a woman far away.
Whether it is for Zoom meetings, family quizzes or FaceTime with the girls, I’ve still been wearing and enjoying lipstick. It completes my look and since I have let my hair colour change to silver, I’ve been experimenting with stronger bolder colours. I am still wearing lipstick beneath my mask, making sure to blot it carefully when I apply it!
It really was love at first sight when I saw the Code8 Alexa Chung All-Day Soiree Lipstick Trio. The gorgeous jewellery box is ideal for travelling and each lipstick in its sleek black magnetic case, gives you pleasure every time you use it.
The Code8 Alexa Chung All-Day Soiree Lipstick Trio is a limited edition and sure to sell out quickly. The Trio costs £95.00 with a value of £135.00 – it’s the ultimate Christmas gift!
