5 to Try: The Great Gatsby inspired lipsticks

I haven't seen The Great Gatsby yet, and to be quite honest I'm not sure I'll see it soon either (blame the fact that I have a baby and right now I choose sleep over sitting for 3 hours in the cinema hall), but I do love seeing the costumes and makeup from the film. Here are 5 lipsticks that I thought would not look too out of place if you were going for a Gatsby inspired look.

  1. Australis Longwear lipstick in Glam* - a matte dark wine shade with brown undertones. Previous review HERE
  2. Rimmel Kate matte lipstick in #107 - a super creamy yet matte berry shade. Previous review HERE
  3. MAC lipstick in RiRi Woo - a deep true red with blue undertones. Previous review HERE
  4. The Make Up Store lipstick in Black Currant* - a creamy deep purple shade with silver sparkles.
  5. Wet n Wild lipstick in Mauve Outta Here - a soft mauve shade, very pretty. Previous review HERE

I imagine the glamorous Jordan wearing shades 1, 2 and 4. Number 3 is a real Myrtle colour, whereas Daisy would probably go for the softer 5.
