The Red Lippy Project

This week is the first Red Lippy Project, a national awareness week for cervical screening. It is estimated that this screening saves 5000 lives every year. However 20% of women do not go to their screening appointment. It's not pleasant, but it could save your life, so this is an incredibly worthwhile cause to raise awareness for.

Spread the word by wearing red lipstick with pride this week with #theredlippyproject, many magazines are taking part as well as celebs like Rita Ora.

Red Lips have this to say about the week:

"We wanted to make the little talked about cervical test less taboo. The campaign is celebrating femininity and the importance of looking after ourselves and each other."

I'll be wearing lippy this week in support of it, and look forward to seeing how much impact the week has. Apparently plans are already underway for next year...

If you would like to give £10 to the cause, text TRLP80 to 70070 and go to for more information

Today I'm wearing Revlon Kissable Balm Stain in Crush. What's your fave lippy?
