Pop sensation and mum-of-one Cheryl has revealed a bargain beauty secret from her make-up bag, and it’s one that we’ll be stocking up on stat.
Speaking to GLAMOUR magazine during an appearance at Cannes Film Festival, the former Girls Aloud star declared her budget beauty hero to be L’Oreal Paris’ Colour Riche Lipstick – in particular, the Cannes exclusive available through Amazon.
Available in both a beige and ‘red carpet red’ shade, the affordable lipstick boasts ‘vivid pigments for saturated colour’, whilst the satin finish means its comfortable to wear on the lip.
Although Cheryl, 34, is a L’Oreal Paris ambassador, meaning that she is more likely than most to recommend their range to her fans, the broader collection of Colour Riche lipsticks on the brand’s website have received rave reviews from happy customers, who praise the ‘great colour and texture’, ‘lovely sheen’ and the ‘naturally beautiful’ finish.
‘This lipstick smells gorgeous and glides on the lips so smoothly,’ wrote one purchaser. ‘Perfect for everyday wear as it’s so low maintenance. Lovely and shiny too to make the lips look smooth.’
Cheryl’s other beauty tips, however, were slightly less affordable – when asked about her skincare secrets, the singer professed her love for the serums from luxe brand Skinceuticals.
‘I use the £85 Hyaluronic Acid Intensifier serum, which is really great,’ she said. ‘It is luxury and it’s a little bit more of an expense but it’s worth it if you want results.’
The award-winning serum on Cheryl’s shelves boasts a range of effective ingredients, including proxylene and botanical extracts, and claims to restore plumpness and elasticity to tired, dehydrated skin.
‘If you take care of your skin, your make-up looks fresher,’ she continued. ‘Having a good base makes it far easier than trying to cover skin ailments with makeup as you’re not really addressing the problem.’
