  2. YSL : Rouge Pur #1
  3. Nars: Dragon Girl
  4. Nars: Carmen

Can anyone tell me which is my favorite? And don’t forget to share your favorites with me.

Happy 4th everyone!

It’s a Cherry Symphony by Lancome

Cherry Symphony (2)Juicy Shakers by  Lancome are available in various colors.  The formulation is the first of its kind, it’s Pigment Infused Bi-Phased Lip Oil  that drenches lips in glorious color.

Perfect for summer weather, lips will be hydrated, healthy and happy.

New Patent Finish Lip Color – Tom Ford

I love discovering new shades of crimson and we recently tried Tom Ford’s New Patent Finish Lip Color.

There are 8 luscious shades in all, just in case you want to try something other than our favorite hue.

This new formula combines the best of two worlds,  a lip stain with an ultra-glossy finish.

Get ready to experience intense vibrant color with long-lasting shine. The texture is light-weight and comfortable, you will forget you’re wearing it.

This is worth looking into, any new shades of red lately?

Feels So Grand By Mac

MAC-Retro-Matte-Liquid-Lipcolour-RedAlright, I read about this color and since there is a Mac boutique on Fillmore it wasn’t hard to walk-in. I tried the color and instantly fell in love.  Ladies, I’ve become obsessed. I’ve been wearing it everyday for the past few weeks.

The red is a true red, it wears well, not too drying and I just love it. I lip line with Dragon Girl by Nars and fill in with Feels So Grand.

$20 – I call that reasonable don’t you? Any new reds anyone?

Valentine’s Day Reds


Hello my darlings, don’t think I’ve forgotten about you.  I haven’t, I think of you everyday, just when you’re busy learning a new job, we don’t have much time for creativity.


I discovered a New shade of red, Wild Ginger by Tom Ford. The shade is more of an orange-red, but gorgeous all the same. I also love Tom’s tried-n-true Cherry Lush, a must have if you know what I mean.

Here’s to a great V-day!

Traffic Jam by NYC Color

FullSizeRenderI Know it’s been awhile, I’ve been busy with my new daytime job and my family.  I’ve still been writing articles for, but I have not really been exploring the world of crimson as much lately.

I did however try a new shade by Hourglass, Iconic I believe and it’s nice, a deep ruby red. Darker than what I’m used to wearing but it works.

Another shade I discovered is Traffic Jam by New York City Color. It’s bright and cheerful, especially with the cold and rainy weather we’ve been experiencing lately.

Hope you’re all doing well and I’ll see you all in the New Year.

Happy Holidays!
