Red Lips

February 8, 2011

I should have put this on my 2011 Resolution List but I forgot… One of my goals for the new year is to be brave enough to wear red lipstick.  I’m scared.  I’m worried that my hair is too strawberry (a.k.a. red) and my skin is to pale to make red lips look flattering.  But I want to try – I think red lips are incredibly chic and classic… So I’m writing this post to reach out to you all, sweet-as-pie, readers for suggestions on brands and colors try.  Who out there is super brave and owns a red lipstick…

So I’m writing this post to reach out to you all, sweet-as-pie, readers for suggestions on brands and colors try.  Who out there is super brave and owns a red lipstick that rocks their world?  I trust you guys – read: I can’t see you but I know you all are beautiful and stylish, and I’m a wee bit lazy and haven’t done any homework on the best of the best reds that live at the beauty counter.  

If you guys hook me up, I PROMISE to put on big girl pants, buy my first tube of red, and take artsy (a.k.a. awkward) pictures as evidence.  So, pleaseandthankyou for suggestions!!!

  1. Alex – awesome suggestions… I am a adrug-store junkie for things like lipstick and mascara so I'll have to try one of your two recommendations. Red lipstick is still sorta scary so getting a cheapie is a good idea if I decide I can't pull it off! Kind of like how my first pair of skinny jeans was from Forever 21, haha

  9. I'm more into the coral-y lip trend so I just tried the Revlon Just Bitten lipstain in Flame or their Matte Lipstick in Strawberry Suede – I recommend both! I went drugstore brand so I could ease into it since I've never worn bright lips before (except in middle school plays)

  10. Thanks girls! Mel – I'd def making a trip to Nordstrom's Nars counter this weekend so I can try new red lips for Valentine's Day <3

  11. ive rocking red lately..sadly, my color has been the lanvin for h&m, and i could only buy 2 tubes of it..so i dont know what will happen when im done

  12. Molly, google some pics of Claire Danes, she has some strawberry in her hair and I think she always looks stunning with a red lip. Go straight to Nars, they do the best reds and their Matte lipstick is to die for. Good luck!
