Can you guys believe Christmas is next week! My favorite thing about the season has always been the Christmas cheer and all the dazzling lights. This year especially I have been particularly obsessed with the color red. My bathing suit I bought for my honeymoon was red, the latest handbag in my collection is red, my engagement photos were of us in….you guessed it. Red!
One of the number one ways for me to incorporate this color into my makeup is by adding a red lip. The first red lipstick I ever bought was Mac Ruby Woo. I remember the day it came out and I was so torn between RiRi Woo or Ruby Woo. Its crazy to remember a time when Mac was the only store I shopped at!
While I love Mac lipsticks (especially their matte formula) it was hard trying to make them last all day. Which is when my interest in liquid lipsticks began. Colourpop liquid lipsticks are a fraction of the cost ($6) and have longer lasting power. My favorite true red liquid lipstick is in the shade Creeper.
Another liquid lipstick favorite is Outlaw by Kat Von D. This color drys down a little darker but the stain on it will last you all day and it doesn’t bleed. This is the most expensive red lipstick I own but considering the formulation of Kat Von D liquid lipsticks, I say its well worth the price.
The newest edition of my collection is the stunna lip paint. This is actually the first lip “paint” I own, so I was super excited to try it. Fenty beauty has really blown everybody’s mind and has the beauty industry buzzing so I definitely wanted to see what the hype was about. I always wonder if the words like “paint,” “stain,” “tint” ever actually make a difference in the pigmentation. From what I hear about this it is not transfer proof, but the color is beautiful on deep/dark skin tones.
