IM Mascara – the perfect companion for crimson pouts

IM Mascara - MexicoI recently read an article in Net-A-Porter talking about Mexico and  how Mexican women tend to wear red lipstick and black mascara, that they had a cult favorite that is only available in Mexico.

Lucky for me my dear friend Shawn was in Mexico City at the time of the article and I immediatly wrote to him asking him if he would be able to bring some back  and he did.

He was so sweet, he picked up one of each, made me very happy.

I tried it today and found it easy to apply and guess what? It made my lashes look pretty, thicker, longer and natural.

What’s your favorite mascara?

Red Lipstick to Consider – Sunset Orange by Bobbi Brown

Visiting my favorite blogs today I realized that Tatler was available on line, I feel like I’ve been living under a rock. For those of you that haven’t heard of Tatler, it’s only one of the best beauty/fashion magazines available in England. The Brits in my opinion know their stuff and report on the newest cutting edge designers, literature, music, health, beauty and film – but let’s not forget that their articles are worth reading too.

Today I discovered they did a piece on the best red lipsticks and going through them  I recognized a few and even found a new one that has me intrigued.

You guys should know by now that I love pencil lipsticks, so before I go out and buy another Dragon Girl by Nars, I’m hitting the Bobbie Brown Counter to test out this little jewel.

What do you guys think?

City Girl in Red Lipstick, Nicole, Accountant, Baltimore

Nicole When she’s not crunching numbers, Nicole in her spare time pinup models and moonlights as an opera singer and makeup artist. She’s a huge fan of our favorite hue, one we know is always in season.

In this image she’s wearing Anastasia’s liquid lipstick in American Doll over Mac’s Ruby Woo lip pencil and doesn’t it look gorgeous? Now that’s what we call a lethal combination.

Why I love wearing red lipstick, it’s classic, sophisticated and bold. I feel like a modern day pinup and red lipstick goes with everything. – Nicole, Accountant

Oh, and Nicole has won a Pinup competition this past September where she came in 2nd, way to go Nicole.

Nicole is one Citygirl in Red Lipstick!

Red Lips – Your Only Accessory

Keep CalmI don’t know why I didn’t think of this post before, for months now all I’ve been doing is applying my crimson pout and earrings as my only accessories.

And lately I’ve been wearing my Dragon Girl by Nars, and after lunch I apply a bit of my Red Red by Butter London and I can vouch that the combination is lethal, it stays on even after a romantic interlude.

What’s your favorite combination for long-lasting power?
