Lipstick State of Mind

Most of my friends and family would say I have a lipstick addiction. This was definitely inherited from my mother.  She was never without her lipstick and I am the exact same way.  Always on the lookout for new lipsticks, I love to see what different brands and formulas have to offer. I constantly rotate which ones I keep in my purse but you can always count on me to have a classic red.  Depending on the rest of your makeup I believe red can be worn all times of the day.  Below are some of my favorites.

A really great glossy rich red.  I have worn this for years and it is my go to color.  This color looks great on most skin tones and the formula wears evenly and has a great sheen.

I love a matte lip because it can provide instant glamour to any look. Mac's Ruby Woo is one of their most popular colors and is a perfect true red. 

 The Mireness Lip Rouge is a stain/lipstick hybrid.  Sometimes matte lipsticks can be very drying but this rouge is moisturizing and lasts all day. Precise application is a must!

  1. Precise application as a prerequisite is too intimidating for me! I'll just stick to burts bees until you can give me a lesson!

  2. LOVE the Lip Rouge!!! I got it in my Birchbox! It looks much better with red hair though :)

  3. Hello,
