If you’ve ever watched Lisa Wilkinson on your telly and wondered what on earth that perfect glossy pink-y nude-y lip colour is that she’s always wearing, a) you’re not alone and b) today is your lucky day.
The secret is out and we have Chrissie Swan to thank.
A fellow admirer, the radio host reached out (or “harassed” as she put it) Wilkinson for the details on where to get her hands on it.
Watch: The all-in-one lip crayon we love. Post continues after video.
“Every time I see Lisa Wilkinson I bang on about how good her lipgloss is. I mean, every single time. She *does* always have the best lip gloss though, amiright,” Swan wrote on Instagram.
“Obviously my harassment wore her down because she organised for some of her special CUSTOM MADE LIPGLOSS to be sent to me this week. It’s by @mellicosmetics and the shade is… Icon. Of course.”
Here are some things that’ve made me happy this week. Firstly: lipgloss. Every time I see @lisa_wilkinson I BANG on about how good her lipgloss is. I mean, every single time. She *does* always have the best lipgloss though, amiright? Obviously my harassment wore her down because she organised for some of her special CUSTOM MADE LIPGLOSS to be sent to me this week. It’s by @mellicosmetics and the shade is… Icon. Of course. It was also my mum’s birthday this week (HBDM!) and I took her and my baby Peg to @langhammelbourne for pink cake treats/Barbie themed high tea. Actual heaven. Hmmmmm what else… I discovered another filter that turns my children into Cheetahs and hilarity ensued, I whipped up some homemade KFC from a recipe that was allegedly found in a scrapbook at the Colonel’s nephew’s place or something (PS DELICIOUS but did someone say HOLD BACK A TABLESPOON OF PEPPER IF YOU WANT TO LIVE? Yes. It was me. Also I have no eyebrows left). Also there’s embroidery in my grid because I’d like to be *that* kind of person but I don’t know how to be *that* kind of person. If YOU are *that* kind of person, please contact me! and before I go a dream of mine came true this week and I got a flower subscription from @hello_lvly so a beautiful little bunch of flowers is sent to me every week and that, my friends, always puts a smile on my dial.
Yes, that gorgeous colour is a custom blend designed by Wilkinson with cruelty free brand Melli Cosmetics who create custom blends for everything from foundation to lipstick.
And it’s not just Swan and half of Australia who’ve been dying to know the brand – even Victoria’s Secret model Alessandra Ambrosio complimented Wilkinson on her lip gloss.
But before you start trying to crack the colour formula to create your own, there’s even better news. It’s now available to purchase online – no harassing emails required. (Post continues after gallery.)
