I 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?
Nothing 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: Dragon Girl
ELF Cosmetics: Rich Red
Any new crimsons in your rotations?
The texture is just like butter, lips are hydrated, plump and moist. The shade is gorgeous and I’ll say this is one perfect shade of red.
It was literally love-at-first-sight. The scent is intoxicating and the color is simply gorgeous.
This is part of their Blurred Lines Lip Collection, there are 9 shades in all, one for everyone.
Okay, I don’t know if that statement is true, but I can agree with the fact that those are crimsons worth considering.
I’ve never tried Revlon’s Fire & Ice, but if I see it on my next trip to the drugstore I guess I just might pick it up.
What about you guys, see anything on the list you’ve tried besides Mac’s Ruby Woo?

I’ve been wanting to try this shade ever since I saw it on ELLIS, it’s an orange red that can be deepened or worn as a stain.
It’s perfect for tropical nights away on vacation or city life.
It’s easy to apply and travels beautifully.
Any new reds lately?
This is an enjoyable article and I highly recommend it.
“I’ve always been fascinated with those women for as long as I can remember. And I think that that had a big impact, and once I was old enough to start playing with makeup myself in high school, it started with the red lipstick. I remember so well that moment where I first put red lipstick on, and it was like, “Whoa, this is a life-altering experience. Why would I not have this splash of color on my face?” – Dita Von Teese, Style.com
I think this would be a good book to consult for those tough beauty questions we don’t talk about.
Plus, there is a lipstick brand that never comes off until you literally take it off – check it out ladies.

Being back from my mini-vacation in New York I’m now hooked on reading The New York Magazine, their beauty section is a good one. This led to the discovery of a fool-proof liquid lipstick that will make applying our favorite hue easy-peasy.
Vermillion Red looks stunning and there are 10 shades, one for everyone’s preferences.

Blog hopping today I came across a shade that looked intriguing. I’m going to have to stop by the Barney’s counter next time I’m in the area and check it out.
It’s moisturizing and adds the right amount of color for those breezy summer nights.
What about you guys, find new shades of our favorite hue?
Here’s to a happy summer!
This shade looks like it’s worth checking out. It’s bright and matte plus it looks like it will look pretty on all skin tones.
It’s also a personal favorite of Kendall Jenners, I happen to like her, but that’s not the main reason I gravitated towards it.
I like it because it looks gorgeous on her and it might look gorgeous on me too.
Either way it’s a sure indication that we will all do it justice.
