Red Lipstick to Consider: Dior Rouge Lipstick 999


Going through my digital magazines I came across a page titled: The best I’ve ever had and there’s a quote from Natalie Portman letting us in on her favorite beauty staple.

It’s Dior’s Rouge Lipstick 999,  she say’s – “it’s the perfect red,it makes me feel like a different woman when I wear it.”

So you guys tell me, do you feel different wearing your favorite shade? I know I don’t, I knew who I was going to be with or without it, red pout or no red pout.

Any thoughts?

FullSizeRenderSurfing the world wide web today I landed on Elle Uk, I’m not as crazy about their format, liked their older version better.  Why? Because it looked more like a magazine layout.

However they have a cute emoji guide that someone created to help us determine which shades of crimson we should be buying, like suggestions according to our skin tones.

I played the game for a  bit, but honestly I had a hard time figuring out which emoji was mine.

Are you guys going to play?

I love Mariacarla Boscano, why? Not only because she favors a crimson pout, but because she takes care of her skin.  She travels with 6 cases of skincare, she’s definitely  a girl after my own heart. I just wish I knew what her favorite beauty products were.

Today on Elle UK they are featuring a post dedicated to their beauty cover shoot for August, and Mariacarla proves once again that everyone could use a neutral lip in their lipstick wardrobe as well as a gorgeous red.

The red used for the shoot is: Le Rouge by Givenchy in Granat Initie.
