I haven’t grabbed something out of a PR’s hand in such haste for a while – I absolutely love this neat little kit, £13.99, from Japonesque that lets you mix up a lipstick palette that is exactly to requirements.

Simply slice of a portion of your lipstick from your existing favourites, pop in the microwaveable bowl and cook for a nano second until your lipstick is pourable. Then tip into the palette and let it harden again. It’s just that simple. I know in theory you don’t really ‘need’ a kit to do this, but I love the idea that everything you need is in this set if you do want to try mixing things up a little – I’m definitely going to try it. It’s a brilliant idea for holidays or just having the a full set of choices in your handbag without having to fill space with lots of different lippies. Fab.

John Lewis carries a selection of Japonesque but not everything: I’m told distribution will be much more widespread in the near future.
