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.
Okay, I finally broke down and walked into my neighborhood Mac boutique and picked up Ruby Woo. I broke down because every time I liked someone’s lipstick and asked what they were wearing I heard the same response, Mac Ruby Woo. I had enough.
I can honestly tell you that the color is gorgeous, but there is no staying power, I have to reapply after every sip of my green juice or decaf iced coffee. But then again it was under $20, what do I expect?
In either case my lips look gorgeous darling. If anyone has any tips on what to wear it with to help give it more staying power I’m all ears.
The lipstick tubes are chic and they hold superior color for perfect pouty lips. This color in 335 Carmin Saint-Germain is a deeply hydrating and moisturizing hue that would make any gal giddy at the knees.
Right now I think it’s only available in France, but will soon arrive state-side, stay tuned!
I’m usually not political, at least not publicly but this is a good cause and I can proudly say I participated this morning. If you gals have an instagram account and an image of yourself wearing your favorite shade of crimson then you may just want to participate too.
Over at the Huffington Post they posted an article in relations to Sexual Assault and a campaign that deserves to be mentioned, as we each could easily fall prey to unwanted advances from strangers or men that are supposed to be our friends.
They chose Red Lipstick as their moniker and rightly so, just because you’re gorgeous inside & out doesn’t mean you want advances from strangers and No, means NO!
