  2. YSL : Rouge Pur #1
  3. Nars: Dragon Girl
  4. Nars: Carmen

Can anyone tell me which is my favorite? And don’t forget to share your favorites with me.

Happy 4th everyone!

It’s a Cherry Symphony by Lancome

Cherry Symphony (2)Juicy Shakers by  Lancome are available in various colors.  The formulation is the first of its kind, it’s Pigment Infused Bi-Phased Lip Oil  that drenches lips in glorious color.

Perfect for summer weather, lips will be hydrated, healthy and happy.

I like to apply this over my matte shades and this is definitely coming with my on my next trip to Maui.

New Patent Finish Lip Color – Tom Ford

Red Corset $52

I love discovering new shades of crimson and we recently tried Tom Ford’s New Patent Finish Lip Color.

There are 8 luscious shades in all, just in case you want to try something other than our favorite hue.

This new formula combines the best of two worlds,  a lip stain with an ultra-glossy finish.

Stolen Cherry $52

Get ready to experience intense vibrant color with long-lasting shine. The texture is light-weight and comfortable, you will forget you’re wearing it.

This is worth looking into, any new shades of red lately?

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!

New Red Lipstick to Try: Vivid Tomato Red

1447331054-dita-von-teese-red-lipstick-macThis lipstick seems like it’s worth investigating. The color looks matte, deep and rich. It also looks like it would be great for all skin types. I just wonder if it has staying power.

If anyone knows red it’s Dita Von Teese.

Again, if you try it before I do, let me know.

Happy New Year!

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!

Finally my weeks calmed down and I can go back to focusing on more important matters, like discovering new shades of crimson.

I’ve always been tempted to wear a sheer hue, but alas I look better in mattes.

What do you guys think?

I pinched this photo from @Netaporter’s instagram account. It’s nice to see Red Lipstick continue to be a lip color appreciated by the fashion industry.

I know that celebrity makeup artist Jezz Hill is working behind the scenes, wonder which red they chose?

Doesn’t it look pretty?
