Valentine’s Day is just a few days away, so I thought I’d share a couple of red-hot lipsticks to spice up your weekend! I’ve been sitting on these recent discoveries for a couple of months, so now is the perfect time to dish on my finds!
I’m a big fan of red lipstick when I want to look sexy and chic with minimal effort. In fact, see the evidence here, here, here, here and here! A little concealer and powder, coupled with some black eye liner and mascara is all you need. Just swipe on your favorite red lipstick and you’re good to go!
Let me preface this by saying that I decided to take these pics on the fly after washing my hair, so please excuse the bath towel and makeup-less face! LOL! Here are the newest addition to my collection of reds!
I was introduced to this gorgeous lipstick by Felicia over at This That Beauty (love her!). Created by red lipstick guru Poppy King, Lipstick Queen Lipstick in Sinner Red, $18 is to die for! This little beauty is not only rich and pigmented, but it’s super creamy and comfortable, thanks to the natural anti-oxidants, Vitamin E and Jojoba Oil it contains. This is a classic red that I would totally wear during the middle of the day, and it would look fabulous on many skintones!
Now, if I want to kick it up a notch, I reach for MAC Lipstick in Ruby Woo, $14. I had been searching high and low for the perfect blue-red, and this is definitely it! This matte lipstick gives high drama and a vintage look that I adore. Be sure lips aren’t the least bit dry or flaky, because Ruby Woo will make it very noticeable. Not a good look! I’ve been wearing this a lot lately when hitting the town at night, which is the perfect time to show off this uber-sexy shade!
I’m kinda sad to say it, but I think my search for the perfect red for brow skin may be over! What do you think of my new finds? Let me know if you plan to give them a try!
