Ever since I heard about this blue gloss as part of the Emilio Pucci Terra Azzurra range for summer, I’ve been dying to try it – and now I have.
The first thing to say is that it is really blue – it is of course highly translucent but there is a definite blue tinge. When I put in on my bare lip, it gave a very lightly greyish glaze – it’s pretty and light enough that nobody is going to start giving you the Heimlich manoeuvre because your lips are blue. Swatches on the arm look REALLY blue, but because of the pink of the lips, it is not that shade on the mouth. I was curious to see what happens if you layer it over other colours, so I used it over Urban Decay Super Saturated in hyper-orange Punch Drunk, and then over Clinique Chubby Stick in Chunky Cherry, a mid pink.
The range is out now at House of Fraser but they haven’t taken the blue shade of gloss, so it’s a wait til the 3rd of June when it goes nationwide to see who’s been brave enough to back the blue lip!
The absolute stand-out piece from the collection is the Terra Azzurra Bronzing Powder & Blush in a chunky wooden palette that has a magnetic lid making for the smoothest possible opening. Mind-blowingly lovely!
