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?

And the packaging is to die for, need I say more?

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.

Mac Ruby Woo

FullSizeRenderOkay, 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.

Happy hunting!
