Thanks to Maybelline, I found my red… lipstick that is

It has been about six months that I have been on the hunt. Too orange. Too pink. Not blue red enough.

I mean, I have tried- especially as the queen of the gloss. I love me a great lip gloss! No need to worry about reapply as much- in my mind…


Maybelline Color Sensation- Ruby Red and Red RevivalImagine my surprise when I received a nice little package from Maybelline and VOILA: an array of red lipsticks! Now, trying to be optimistic, I tried them… cause I was a hunt.

I found not only one, but TWO shades that work for me happily!

Red is a tricky thing for me, as my undertones are both red and yellow- I had been looking for a blue red, that was deep and rich in color, so that I could say- I rock a mean red lip! I mean, afterall, Felicia from @thisthatbeauty was my motivation and inspiration! Have you seen her fabulous red lips?

Anywho, so what I have ended up with are these two colors from Maybelline’s Color Sensational Line:

Red Revival (645) and Ruby Star (640)

I got a little creative and layered or interchanged the two, as they re sooo close in color! When I rocked them, i tried it two ways! Once bare lipped- the color was bolder! Second time around, I placed a little bit of foundation to set my lips… I copied this from some show I had seen somewhere! LOL For balance, I kept my eyes light, with nude eyeshadows and a clean line with some of my favorite eyeliners!

Here are my looks!

Do you wear red? Are you a fan of the red lip?

    Love it!! I am head over heels for red lipstick and I’m loving your colors. Mine actually takes 5 products to make- lip liner, primer, MAC Ruby Woo lipstick, Cover Girl red lip gloss, and sealing lip shine. It’s involved, but it stays all night and the color is perfect. All hail red lips!!

        I will touch up the gloss over the evening but the color stays really well. The sealing lip shine is part of the Cover Girl gloss – it’s a double ended tube that has color on one side and sealing gloss on the other end. I believe it’s the Cover Girl Outlast Lip Shine.

    I recently purchased a red lipstick  and lip gloss from Red Apple.  They have an exchange program for first time users.  I sent them in a lipstick (from Maybelline no less) that I didn’t end up liking when I bought it at Target and they sent me for free one of theirs.  I also bought a lip gloss to go with is.  I got Strawberry Lips for the lipstick and Ruby Glass for the lip gloss and together….WOW!  I love love love it!  (to be fair, Maybelline is my go to brand for all things EYES)
