City Girl in Red Lipstick, Paris – Lili Barbery-Coulon, Journalist, Le Monde Magazine

Another favorite blog of mine is because of the diversity of topics, perfect for the world traveler or aspiring one. I’m a huge fan of Lili Barbery-Coulon, Journalist, Le Monde. Lili is a girl after my own heart, she never travels without skincare and is an avid admirer of our favorite shade of Lipstick, Red.
Lili Barbery-Coulon is a City Girl in Red lipstick!
“I have tons of red lipsticks, I’m obsessed with the product as I think it can really upgrade your style (especially when you’re just wearing jeans and a sweatshirt, it does make the trick). For a very long time, my favorite one has been Armani Lipstick N°400, I thought that the color looked great on any complexion, the texture is over pigmented, it’s very thick and feels like satin on the lips. It doesn’t dry them at all. But I also have velvety matte sticks by Nars, rouge allure by Chanel, the very red lipstick by Yves Saint Laurent that was launched last October in France. And, I’m very found of the Tom Ford lipsticks, love the packaging, their long ability to stay on the lips (although they do dry my lips a bit). Armani launched lip maestro last October, I’m not mad about the packaging but the texture is mad, it stays for hours, the colors are just perfect and it doesn’t dehydrate the lips. at all.”Lili Barbery-Coulon, Journalist, Le Monde Magazine

Red Lipstick Quote’s – Danielle Vincent of Kimiko Beauty

 Red Lipstick?

“It’s a classic look, when done properly it’s beautiful.  If you go bold with red, please be light-handed with the eyes.  I find a red lip looks best paired with clean, flawless skin, and just a slight touch of blush, to bring back the dimension. Add perfectly defined brows, a minimal and well blended black or dark brown liner (barely visible) and neatly-applied mascara.  A fresh take on a red lip is our Sheer Tint and Lip Plumper in Pomegranate; because it’s a tint, the color depth is buildable plus it will not budge once applied.  It’s always a little awkward to have to tell someone their red lipstick is all over their teeth.”  – Danielle Vincent of Kimiko Beauty

Red Lipstick Quote’s – Sonia Kashuk

Sonia Kashuk on Red Lipstick

Red Lipstick?

Red lipstick serves as a good example of how application can help you achieve multiple looks.  Classic red lipstick is a secret weapon that every woman should have in her makeup bag. The color and tone will brighten the face and completely transform your look. That shock of color will become the focus to make a powerful statement, while still looking super feminine, sophisticated and strong. Keep the rest of the face fresh and allow lips to take center stage, it is all about the power of one! But keep in mind that red doesn’t have to be intense- you can apply it as sheer or opaque as you desire. – Sonia Kashuk

Red Lipstick Quote’s – Diana Vreeland

Diana Vreeland on Red….

“All my life I’ve pursued the perfect red. I can never get painters to mix it for me. It’s exactly as if I’d said, ‘I want rococo with a spot of Gothic in it and a bit of Buddhist temple’—they have no idea what I’m talking about. About the best red is to copy the color of a child’s cap in any Renaissance portrait.” – Diana Vreeland
