I like the black packaging and isn't that red such a gorgeous shade?!
Here's a swatch.
Of course I had to do a whole look centered around my new lipstick right away. I applied neutral shades to my lids accompanied by black liner and I also added a set of very natural false lashes. I kept my face pretty natural and layed down one thick, even coat of lipstick.
After I applied the lipstick I cleaned up the edges with concealer.
I wanted my hair to complement my makeup so I went with big loose waves that I created with my curling wand. This whole look made me feel like a different person, but in a good way! I felt like I was exploring a new side of myself. It was fun.
It turned out that the red was a perfect shade - not to orange-y, not too dark.; just vibrant and bold. Also another great thing is that this lipstick really has staying power! It lasted for hours on my lips just the way I applied it. Now I'm excited to try more reds and bold colors.
Do you wear red lipsticks?
