Do you ever wake up with dry-chapped lips? I used to, until I tried Homeoplasmine, a French beauty find that started off being balm for mom’s who breastfed their little ones. Someone’s brain kicked in and realized it was good for the lips too. Honestly, sometimes you think it’s not working, until you run out of it and then you know, you know?
Scrubbing dry lips is easy with Sugar Lip Polish fromfresh, it smells like candy, and another lip polish I love is Baume De Rose Lip Scrub by Terry and you guessed it, it smells like roses. Although if you don’t feel like splurging on a lip scrub, you can always use your toothbrush to slough away dead skin.
I tend to sport a crimson pout, but sometimes when I’m not wearing makeup, like lately I like using Baume De Rose Lip Care, it leaves a beautiful light pink on my lips, and I don’t wear lipgloss often, but if I did it would be you guessed it Baume De Rose.
I can’t help myself, I collect red lipstick like it’s going out of style. For years I just bought any shade that looked pretty, until I realized that red was just my shade. A lot of women shy away from the color, but ladies I am here to tell you that there is right shade for everyone and that a red lip is equivalent to a man’s red power tie, just look at the Queen, it’s said that she’s worn the same shade of red, made especailly for her by Clarins.
Hi, I hope everyone is staying-in and staying safe. I’ve had time to go back to my passion of blogging. A few months ago I was flipping through one of my fashion magazines and stumbeled upon a foundation sample from Chanel. Normally, I don’t really pay attention, but I was actually in the market for a new foundation.
I tried it and was pleasantly surprised that it was my actual color, and the look was natural, it covered imperfections and yet looked like I wasn’t wearing makeup. I was excited and ordered it immedialty.
I soon discovered that Chanel will ship any purchase made online with complimentary two-day Fedex shipping. Plus, they let you choose two samples of your choosing, and of course I chose Rouge Allure Ink Fusion
, afterall I am always looking for a new red.
My package arrived within the two-day period and I couldn’t wait
to try the Ink Fusion sample in True Red. I literally fell-in-love, my teeth looked whiter, my skin looked brighter and I was in bliss with my new find. Now I think you guys know that I don’t need makeup, afterall I am still a bit of a beauty blogger and have a stash of product, not only that but Space NK is one of my favorite shops.
I immediatly order my True Red and am now fighting with myself from ordering more, the struggle is real.
Ladies, what’s your current favorite shade of red?
I first discovered Lola surfing the world-wide web, falling instantly in-love with her words, I always looked forward to her articles on Harper’s Bazaar. Her stories instantly transported me to another world, where friendships were made over love, fashion and cultural entertainment, my soul was nourished with inspiration and continues to be as I follow Lola on Instagram.
The very essence of chic runs through Lola’s veins, being the grand-daughter of Sonia Rykiel, and having been raised in Paris one can’t help but admire her casual approach to fashion, everything is tre’s chic.
I especially love it when she’s wearing our favorite hue, and it’s true Lola, when in doubt choose red.
Women’s rights has been a life-long challenge and what better way to build confidence than to wear a red lip while braving the police and opposing demonstrators.
Elizabeth Arden was an early pioneer and gave away red lipstick to every suffragette in 1912. Way to go Elizabeth and to celebrate Elizabeth Arden has come out with a limited edition March on Red bullet – get yours while supplies last.
Oh, and it’s signed by Reese Witherspoon – all proceeds go to the UN Women to advance gender equality worldwide.
Here’s to history confirming that nothing says confidence like a crimson pout.
One of my best friends on Instagram is Malala Artola @ohlala_malala. I enjoy her insta-stories and posts about her endless travels, love of art and fashion inspiration. She also runs the hottest club in Buenos Aires, Club Newman, these are posts about her adorable children who can teach us all a thing or two about dancing.
Here we have two photos of Maria Laura wearing our favorite hue, she looks equally stunning wearing any shade of lip color, but our favorite is the crimson, because who doesn’t look stunning in red?
Thank you Maria Laura and here’s to crimson kisses!
Happy Christmas ladies, hope everyone is doing well. I know, I’ve been MIA for awhile,but trust me I’ve been going through so many changes, that I can’t seem to keep up with my passion for accumulating new shades of crimson and talking about it.
Do any of you recognize any of these? Recently, I went out and bought two Dragon Girls, I literally layer them underneath other shades and love the results, any new tricks or hues you’ve discovered lately, it’s time to kiss and tell.
