I usually go for pink lipsticks, but lately, I've been fancying about old Hollywood red lips for sometime now. I didn't know if I would be able to pull it off, so I chose a true red shade from Revlon, just to be safe. Blue-reds might be too bright, while warm reds might be too orange for me.
So here's my look for today:
Lips: Revlon's Super Lustrous Matte in In the Red
Eyes: Black Eyeliner from Beauty Bar (forgot the brand)
Cover Girl Lashblast Fusion
Brows: E.L.F. Studio Brow kit powder in medium
Face: The Faceshop's Aqua Tinted BB Cream and Dewy Flower Moist Loose Powder in Natural Beige
I know I should've put red lipliner too, to avoid the color from bleeding. But it's just my first attempt anyway. Took this photo via my mobile's camera, but I think it shows the color well.
|my lips, should've outlined my lips first right? But hey, it still works!|
I will do a more extensive review of Revlon's In the Red lipstick soon. But for now, just thought I'll share my first experience with red lipsticks. I'll be trying out those most-coveted MAC Russian Red and Ruby Woo, too.
