Lipsticks belong in their tube, not all over the inside of my purse and Giorgio Armani, Bourjois Paris and mark. agree!

Is there anything worse then reaching into your purse to grab your lipstick for a touch up and discover that the cap has come off and you now have lipstick all over everything? Yuck!

Giorgio Armani Rouge d'Armani - $38 - available in 36 regular and seasonal colours. Not only is this case practical for it's magnetic staying closed properties, but it looks sleek and gorgeous too!  I amused myself for far longer then is likely normal taking the cap off and putting it back on again - you'll have to try it yourself to see how strangely compelling it is... Available at Holt Renfrew.

Bourjois Paris Sweet Kiss Lipstick - $18 - available in 14 shades.  I must admit that the first one I had my hands on one of these I couldn't figure out how to open it - which is good if you want your lipstick to stay closed but not so good if you are an idiot like me!  Once I got the hang of it though I thoroughly appreciated how impossible it would be for this cap to accidentally come off someplace that I didn't want it to! Available at select Shoppers Drug Mart and Murale stores across Canada.
mark. lipclick full color lipstick - $10 - available in 8 shades with a magnetic case that clicks closed.  It's also nicely compact if you are more prone to carrying your lipstick in your front pocket or a very small clutch! Available for your Avon rep - 1-800-265-AVON or online at

- Lisamarie -


  1. what a good idea there is nothing worse than ruining a good handbag with lippy :)

  2. yea i hate that too! I sometimes forget to put my lipstick in my mini makeup bag and just throw it inside my purse which is a big no no because once it's open, your bag is ruined. Now I only carry lipsticks that have a good case.
