Pucker Up for The Red Lippy Project

Here at Pamflet we never need a reason to wear red lipstick, but this week we have a really good one: it’s Cervical Screening Awareness Week (9 – 15 June) and The Eve Appeal which raises funds for research into cervical cancer has joined forces with The Red Lippy Project to encourage you to put on your brightest red lipstick to draw attention to the cause and donate some cash.

Let’s face it, going for a smear test isn’t exactly a fun day out but it’s absolutely essential and so attend we must – and most women only have to go every three years or so. It’s estimated that screening saves up to 5000 lives each year, but about 20% of women who are invited to go for a smear test fail to show up (the number rises to a shocking 68% in the 25 – 29 year old group).

It’s a simple concept that carries a very important message. Put your lipstick on, if anyone asks you why, tell them it’s to raise awareness of the importance of cervical screening, maybe get everyone in your workplace to join you (including the men – why not? they can be sponsored too!) and raise some money and awareness.

I will be wearing this beautiful new red from Poppy King, the Lipstick Queen. It’s from her new Velvet Rope luxe lipstick line which comes out in September and is called Brat Pack. I love it – it glides on beautifully, wears down evenly and smells of peppermint! Plus check out that gold tube – it has a pleasing weight in the hand and looks so glamorous.

Why not take a picture of your scarlet pout and tweet it @RedLippyProject and @TheEveAppeal?
