Hope you all had a wonderful Monday. Mine was great! I got a new laptop delivered which means it will be easier for me to blog. I am excited to blog more!
95% of the time I stray away from red lipstick. Not because I don't like it but because I just am not used to wearing it. Its bold and I usually shy away from bold. That being said, I've become more comfortable with brighter lips. I started with brighter pinks and now working my way into reds. When I received this red lipstick from City Color Cosmetics I was instantly excited. I loved the look of the color and I really like the packaging. Thinking, this is too good to be true, it probably would look hideous on me. With that said, I tried it and shocker...I loved it! Its a red that suits me and its build-able. However it is a matte lipstick, they seem to be more drying. I use a basic chap stick before applying. Seems to work a lot better that way. Its lasted a few hours before the need to reapply. Overall for $1.99 this is a great lipstick and I would like to try the pink one. I recommend trying them for yourself. I think you'll be surprised with the quality.
It's a great lipstick for a low key makeup day like in the picture. I'm wearing it on the lighter side. It can be more intense if you choose. would be great for an evening event.
(not the greatest picture... was a last minute, quick face type of day!)
