Red lipstick has the ability transform our face, our outfit, and our mood in a matter of seconds.
What’s amazing to us is how different we felt with each shade we wore. Our husband will argue that all these lipsticks look the same, but we clearly had a va-va-voominess with MAC Classic Dame (Day 1) that wasn’t there with Estée Lauder Rich Red (Day 3). However, Rich Red is the shade we felt most comfortable in—our lips were defined but we didn’t feel like they were on stage. Chanel Rouge Allure in Lover (Day 6) and Shiseido The Makeup Perfecting Lipstick in Real Red (Day 5) are the shades we think look best on our pale skin. Both have a pink undertone, with Real Red bordering on berry.
The common denominator with all these reds is most certainly the glam factor. We found ourself on the receiving end of several admiring winks this week (who cares if it was the Schwann’s delivery guy, the mailman, and our 70-year-old neighbor—a wink is a wink, right?)
There are so many other great red lipsticks on the market today and we can’t wait to try more of them this season. We’ll be sure to keep you posted on our finds.
Thanks for following along this week, it’s been fun!
