Goldie Red, Rouge à Lèvres Mat Lipstick by Gucci

Now, this is a crimson I’m interested in, how about you? It’s mat, vibrant and ever so red……


City Girl in Red

Well, I decided to surface for a photo with my new Violette_FR red lipstick. It’s like a stain, it’s a little drying, but it’s pretty. I didn’t touch up the photo, I actually had to combe my hair for a Zoom meeting and decided to apply a crimson lip.

I ordered the blue eyeliner too, but I’m not brave enough for that yet. I also need to dye my hair, but the crimson helps a bit, as well as the sunglasses.

Here’s to a red lip…….

The Makeup Bag

I have three red lipsticks in my makeup bag, the other that isn’t shown is a Chanel Rouge Allure Ink Fusion lipstick in True Red. How many red lipsticks are in your makeup bag?

Magic – Rouge Coco Bloom by Chanel

Well, looks like Chanel did it again, just when I thought I had every Chanel lipstick I wanted, I turn around and there is a new one. Oh my…..

128- Magic $40

Rouge Coco Bloom is supposed to be hydrating, lip plumping and delivers intense shine. I’m not into lip gloss or anything shiny on my lips, but if I was this color would be a winner and thanks to their new software you can now try on every lipstick in their collection.

Kiss, Kiss…..

Petal Bouche Matte by Violette fr

There is a new red in town and it’s by makeup artist Violette and all I can say is that it’s about time. The texture is said to resemble a rose petal on your lips, nice description and can’t wait to add this to my collection.

$25 –

There are other pieces to the collection, but naturally this is the one I have my eyes on.

Kiss, Kiss…..

Wish List : It’s a Crimson Obsession

Nobody needs lipstick, especially red lipstick. But why not? I’ve purchased 6 different shades within the last three months, preparing for the end of the pandemic, or for days like today when I will be outside and more than 6 feet apart from strangers. Violet Grey means it’s been tested and tried, perfect.

$45 –

Reds I want but don’t need:


and of course another Chanel, what is it with Chanel?

Happy Easter!

AOC’s Favorite Shade of Red

I’ve been meaning to post about AOC. Right after she stood-up for all women that day. She brought tears to my eyes. I’ve been called names, and leered at by strange men and I’ve never really talked about it, until her speech. I too was often told to not wear red lipstick, but I chose to be who I was regardless. Most men are intimidated by a strong woman and I am glad we are all sisters.

Beso $22

I can’t say I’m a big fan of Stila, but the color sure does look pretty.
