Yardley's Intense Rouge Lipsticks Bring These COSMO Girls' #FearlessFaces to Life

What’s your power look?

ICYMI, we’ve collaborated with Yardley to bring you #FearlessFaces. It’s a campaign aimed at empowering women and celebrating the different ways in which we use makeup to create power looks that showcase our individuality.

We brought beauty influencer Lungile Thabethe into the mix and asked her advice on how to create two power looks for COSMO girls Aphiwe Khambule (beauty editor) and Kim Mockey (beauty intern). For their #FearlessFaces, Lungile used the newly launched range of Yardley’s Intense Rouge Lipsticks – these little miracle workers are the ultimate multi-taskers – use them as eyeshadows, lip colours and blush. It’s 3-in-1 action in one compact product.

We’re in love with the texture of Yardley’s Intense Rouge Lipsticks – they’ve got a luxuriously creamy texture and create a satin finish that’s oh-so-kissable. Plus, they’ve got a high colour payoff – smooth it on and make your #FearlessFace pop with colour. These babies are available in 10 lip-popping shades: Mantra, Scandal, Crave, Crush, XOXO, Wink, Posh, Bae, Miss Scarlet and Almost Bare. What’s not to love? Plus, at only R89,95 for a lippie, you can invest in a few shades without breaking the bank – it’s a quality product at a totally affordable price. Mid-month shopping? Let’s do it.

If you’re as excited as we are to get an insider’s view on how Aphiwe and Kim’s power looks were created, have a look here:

 Here’s what we used on Aphiwe’s face:

  • Stayfast Foundation SPF20 (R150) Mahogany
  • Stayfast Pressed Powder (R150) Mahogany
  • Quad Eyeshadow (R131) Dynasty
  • Eyebrow Pencil + Brush (R90,95) Woodburn
  • Intense Rouge Lipstick (R89,95) Miss Scarlet
  • Intense Lash Mascara (R152) Black

‘I feel most fearless when I’m wearing a bold lipstick – it gives me the ultimate confidence boost. My go-to colour is classic red, and Yardley offers 10 standout shades to choose from. I love the Yardley Intense Rouge Lipstick’s creamy texture, and it has a strong colour payoff.’ – Aphiwe

This is what we used on Kim’s face:

  • Even Complexion Foundation SPF20 (R190) Natural
  • Eyebrow Pencil + Brush (R90,95) Woodburn
  • Intense Rouge Lipstick (R89,95 each) Posh and Bae
  • Intense Matte Lipstick (R110) Angelic

‘Blush and a pop of colour on the eyes is all I need to conquer the day. The Yardley Intense Rouge Lipstick multitasks as a blusher and an eye colour – score! The Bae shade was applied to my cheeks as blusher, and the Posh shade was applied as eye shadow. All I need is five minutes and I’m ready to go.#FearlessFace – sorted.’ – Kim
