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

T0T3-15_LIP+COLOR_WILDGINGER

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.

T0T3-10_LIP+COLOR_CHERRYLUSH

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 examiner.com, 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!

 

Gorgeous Reds – Smashbox

FullSizeRenderI know, I’ve been MIA but to my defense I’ve had a lot going on. I’ve been going out on various interviews for a new day job to pay the rent and provide me with extra income to continue to keep adding to my red lipstick collection.

While I’ve been busy with that I’ve encountered two new shades of crimson from Smashbox, and both are gorgeous.

Legendary and Infrared Matte – can you guess which is which?

I loved Legendary because it’s a bright red, perfect for my light olive skin.

So, what have you guys been up to?

My Birthday Reds

IMG_5359Nothing like receiving a few great reds for your birthday. I had to pick up another Dragon Girl, it just one of the most flattering reds I’ve tried.

I finally added Vesuvio to the rotations and found a bargain with ELF Cosmetics.

Nars: Vesuvio

Nars: Dragon Girl

ELF Cosmetics: Rich Red

Any new crimsons in your rotations?
