Red lipstick! I was terrified of it for years, partially out of the fear that I’d choose the wrong shade and look ridiculous, and partially out of the fear that even the right shade would look ridiculous on me, like a little kid playing dress-up with Mommy’s makeup. Well, I am a mommy now, and I’m definitely too old to look like a little kid under any circumstances, so here’s a red lip.
(Updated with slightly better lip swatch pics.)
Quick tip: If you’re applying with the doe foot applicator that comes with the tube, wipe off most of the product on the applicator before putting it on your lips, and apply in thin layers to build intensity. They’re not kidding when they call it ColorSTAY. Once it sets, this lip color lasts forever. I’ve worn it from morning to night with very little fading or flaking, and I usually remove it by massaging (for a while) with a tiny dab of my cleansing balm. It doesn’t come off with normal wear or washing.
What lip color are you wearing today?
