Abby caught my eye immediately, it was her gorgeous makeup application and shade of crimson. I asked her what she was wearing and I wasn’t surprised by her answer, it’s the same answer I’ve heard whenever I admire another woman’s shade of crimson.
” Mac Ruby Woo”
I asked Abby a few more questions:
Q: Why do you wear red lipstick?
A: There’s something magical about red lipstick. When I’m having a bad hair day, when my makeup doesn’t seem right or when I’m feeling tired in general. The moment, that red stick touches my lips, I feel glamorous right away. My Red Lipstick Saves the day! 👄💄
Q: How does it make you feel?
A: It makes me feel bright and beautiful and it turns my dullest days into my most glamorous days.
Q: How old were you when you started wearing crimson?
A: I started wearing red lipstick in my late twenties. I feel stunning, stylish and successful every time I wear it.
Well ladies, if we arn’t wearing crimson yet, this is as good as any reason to start.
I’ve had a long two weeks, first it started with two book lectures. Anita Hill and Lena Dunham. Let’s say I walked away impressed with both women. I also managed to read Not That Kind of Girl by Lena Dunham and loved it.
I’m a huge admirer of good literature, although I can’t say this will become a classic, it’s definitely a good read.
I also finally walked into my neighborhood Mac and bought Lady Danger. I can honestly say that I loved the color, but the texture didn’t like me. I found it too drying and not long-lasting to say the least. It completely came off during my morning cup of green tea and I drink everything out of a straw.
I finally took it back yesterday and vowed to never buy Mac again, I knew there was a reason why I stayed away from it.
Well, are any of you any baseball fans? Believe it or not, I’m a huge Giants fan,and I am enjoying the World Series, it’s highly stressful, because anything can happen and it’s not over yet.
This shade of crimson looks mighty-pretty, I have not bought Mac since I was in my twenties and was tempted when Lady Danger first came out, perhaps I’ll visit or put myself on the waiting list for this delectable shade.
Three things I always want to know, what literature people are reading, beauty products women use – and their favorite shade of Red Lipstick.
One of my favorite fashion icons, Alexa Chung shared with Life Style Mirror two of her favorite shades of Red.
Russian Red by Mac – a pretty red, I wore this shade while in my twenties and Coronmandel by Chanel, this too used to be in my rotations. What have I learned, that I am on the right path and these two shades are worth revisiting.
Russian Red is a true red and Coronmandel is an orange red, both gorgeous.
