As soon as I stepped through the door I instantly spotted the Glitter and Ice collection and more importantly this gorgeous lipstick. I was immediately drawn to What Joy! because I have been looking for a dark, berry lipstick for ages, I think it is such a lovely colour for this time of year. The first time I wore it, I applied it as you normally would apply a lipstick and the result was a beautiful, deep berry colour with a satin finish.

However, I then realised it would be lovely as a lip tint also. To do this I used Elizabeth Arden's 8 Hour Cream but any moisturising lip product would do and then applied the lipstick with my finger.

An equally divine colour, however, much more wearable during the day. I really love this lipstick and I will be wearing it constantly over the Christmas period. It would be perfect as a day to night lip colour and adds a sophisticated edge to any neutral look. I got it from the Mac store in Spitalfields for £14 but it will be in most Mac counters and stores worldwide.
