Red Lipstick Wars

I am not a lipstick wearer. For the longest time, I have always felt that lipstick was not for me, most notably red lipstick. While I have often admired the look of red lips on the Fashionistas- I have most notably convinced myself that

Lipstick WarsRed






So, a few weeks back, over on Twitter (you following me over there?) I was chatting up a few beauty bloggers about red lipstick and how I stick to my fabulous glosses- keeping the focus on my eyes!

Maybe I am scared, jaded, or frustrated OR hate the idea or having to reapply throughout the day, whatever it is, Red Lipstick and I have been in a war over my lips.

Enter in Hope Parker. She challenges me to a few lipsticks from Avon– swearing she can find me a color I love. After sending me a handful of samples to play with and open for any challenge, I happily oblige her, and this is the end result:

Look 1: Regal Red

Look 2: Perfectly Natural

Look 3: Plum Wine

Look 4: Bronze

Look 5: Cranberry

Look 6: Berry Bloom

The lipsticks were quite moisturizing and bold in their individual statements.

So that I would not be BIAS, I elicited my family (lil sister’s Karaoke Birthday party yesterday) and they settled on a winner.

Vocal as they were, I am reaching out to you!

Which RED LIPSTICK do you like? Which do you hate?

Based on your votes, I will attempt a day in RED!

    The bronze looks really neutral on you. I would wear that one everyday if I were you. I vote cranberry, too.

    I love the Plum Wine and Cranberry, I think it does not look too bright and overpowering. I have been skeptic when it comes to red lipstick too, I always thought that it will not look on my skin complexion.
    I think, I’m willing to give it a try.
