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?

Playing With Colour – MAKE COLOUR

Celeste-e-Verde-Palette_1_1000_WhiteI don’t know about you guys but I love playing with colour, layering, mixing and matching. A new brand I mentioned awhile ago is by MAKE.

The colours are bold, look-at-me colours that can be applied subtly or with dramatic flair.  Everything is in the wrist and your favorite makeup brushes, although I have been known to use my fingertips.

This palette is called Celeste e Verde, Blue & Green and the colours are sublime.  The pigments have long-wearing colour, they don’t come off until you take them off.

I can’t wait to try these with one of my various shades of crimson and guess what? If you forget to take your tried&true red, there is a red inside that not only compliments the shades but various skin tones. Plus, if you’re not in the mood for red there are other shades available.

Truly a collection of fiery brights and gorgeous earth tones.

Classic True Red – Babor

One of the many perks about my job is receiving little boxes in the mail.  Not only is the packaging gorgeous, but the Classic True Red by Babor is stunning! The texture is moist and silky soft – glides on the lips drenching them in total hydration.  My lips soaked in the nutrients and the aroma is just as intoxicating as the bright, bold and femme fatale shade of crimson. Another plus, it comes off when you want to take it off!



*An innovative new formula with a visible lifting effect. It creates a thin film without sticking or just lying on the surface. High gloss, long lasting and very true color. The lifting complex protects the sensitive skin of the lips from environmental stress while treating and regenerating it.

The Perfect Universal RED – ELLIS FAAS RED

The perfect universal red, ELLIS FAAS Red can be worn as a stain or layered on for a more intense dramatic effect.

I’ve been applying this gorgeous deep red that becomes any shade of red I want it to be, from sheer to intense.

You’re going to love the sleek bullet casing that houses the gorgeous colour, the brush tip applicator makes for an easy application gliding on the lips, for a flawless finish.

All Ellis Faas colours are universal and rich, they embody the hues and tones that are part of our skin.  This explains why Ellis Faas Red works with all skin tones and complexions, it’s the one shade of red that everyone can wear.

ELLIS FAAS RED is a Citygirl Red!
