The original – the cheekily named, sex-inspired, universally flattering blush – is and always has been one since its debut in 1999. New products in the same gold-flecked, peachy-pink shade are released annually to commemorate it, and never fail to fly off shelves, so why should this year’s be any different? Especially when there are now the first-ever lip balm and loose powder in the iconic colour. And a matching, limited edition lip lacquer. And these (along with the blush, of course) are said to be a just teaser before a more significant launch come July (there’s reportedly a new formula, but the brand is tight-lipped for now).
