Before the week is out...Wear this

Next week Givenchy is launching its latest lipstick and nail varnish range, which claims to include a magic formula for lips. All down to a "triple-acting complex composed of microspheres, a polymer weave and powder microparticles", apparently. But don't be put off by the scientific twaddle. What you'll really be buying this for is the gorgeous Rouge Miroir packaging (it was designed by sculptor Pablo Reinoso) and the handy mirror on the lid. You'll want to show this lippy off so keep it in your bag and reapply regularly, as obviously as possible.

Rouge Miroir Lipstick, pounds 13, from Harrods from 13 September and nationwide from 25 September.
