|leighton denny lip duel in hot gossip*|
The lipstick is really soft and glides onto the lips with a really nice pigmentation, I don't wear a lot of red lipsticks but this one is just the right shade for my pale skin without making my teeth look strange or washing me out. I think I'd wear this alone or with the stain on top, rather then wearing the stain alone.

The stain is sheer in comparison to the lipstick but when layered gives an extra tint to the finish and seals in the colour. It does transfer a little onto cups when drinking, but I just ate lunch and it didn't rub off on my food, so that's a thumbs up from me. Hate getting lipstick all over my sandwich!

I'm actually really impressed with this product, I'd recommend using a lip balm underneath as the stain can extenuate chapped lips, the stain has a good lasting finish and the lipstick itself is really lovely to apply. I think I may have to purchase the hot pink one! Do you own any Leighton Denny make up?
