Red Lipstick Quote – Dita Von Teese

dita-von-teese-04This is an enjoyable article and I highly recommend it.

“I’ve always been fascinated with those women for as long as I can remember. And I think that that had a big impact, and once I was old enough to start playing with makeup myself in high school, it started with the red lipstick. I remember so well that moment where I first put red lipstick on, and it was like, “Whoa, this is a life-altering experience. Why would I not have this splash of color on my face?” – Dita Von Teese, Style.com

I think this would be a good book to consult for those tough beauty questions we don’t talk about.

Plus, there is a lipstick brand that never comes off until you literally take it off – check it out ladies.

A Red Lipstick to Consider – Aloha by Lipstick Queen

L10079_Endless-Summer_Aloha-tatler-11dec14_pr_b_400x600Blog hopping today I came across a shade that looked intriguing. I’m going to have to stop by the Barney’s counter next time I’m in the area and check it out.

It’s moisturizing and adds the right amount of color for those breezy summer nights.

What about you guys, find new shades of our favorite hue?

Here’s to a happy summer!

Red Lipstick to Consider – Restless By Estée Lauder

1434993085-hbz-kendall-estee-embedThis shade looks like it’s worth checking out.  It’s bright and matte plus it looks like it will look pretty on all skin tones.

It’s also a personal favorite of Kendall Jenners, I happen to like her, but that’s not the main reason I gravitated towards it.

I like it because it looks gorgeous on her and it might look gorgeous on me too.

Either way it’s a sure indication that we will all do it justice.

Personally I don’t wear lip gloss, wish I did but the truth is it just doens’t look good on me. I don’t like shine, I don’t mind dewy skin but not shiny lips.

Gucci Red Wine $32

Red Lipstick to Consider – Vesuvius Liquid Lipstick in Red by Lipstick Queen

503334472_product_1Reading the world-wide web today I realized it’s been a week since I posted and honestly there hasn’t been much news in the red lipstick front, unless you count the fact that red lips lost out at the Tony Awards, seems everyone that attended chose to wear nude. I’m speechless honestly.

In my musings I came across a liquid lipstick that shows promise, the application looks easy and the color looks gorgeous.

What do you guys think?

I finally found a new shade I’m in rapture with and it’s by Tom Ford.

Ruby Rush goes on smooth, it’s hydrating and has long-lasting staying power.  Plus the color is gorgeous, a cross between a a berry red/blue red and I have not been able to put it down.

It’s a perfect red matte lipstick that goes with everything of course.

I lip line with my Jungle Red lip pencil by Nars or My Red lip pencil by Lipstick Queen and my results are kissable all afternoon.

So, has anyone picked up a new shades of crimson?

Abby caught my eye immediately, it was her gorgeous makeup application and shade of crimson. I asked her what she was wearing and I wasn’t surprised by her answer, it’s the same answer I’ve heard whenever I admire another woman’s shade of crimson.

” Mac Ruby Woo”

I asked Abby a few more questions:

Q: Why do you wear red lipstick? 

A: There’s something magical about red lipstick. When I’m having a bad hair day, when my makeup doesn’t seem right or when I’m feeling tired in general. The moment, that red stick touches my lips, I feel glamorous right away. My Red Lipstick Saves the day! 👄💄
Q: How does it make you feel?
A: It makes me feel bright and beautiful and it turns my dullest days into my most glamorous days.
Q: How old were you when you started wearing crimson?

A: I started wearing red lipstick in my late twenties. I feel stunning, stylish and successful every time I wear it.

Well ladies, if we arn’t wearing crimson yet, this is as good as any reason to start.
