What is your favorite RED lipstick?

Sunday, August 30, 2009

One iconic beauty staple is red lipstick. Why you ask? Because it's works with every skintone..

Well as long as you know when to warm up a red or cool it down your fine.

I hardly wear lipsticks..It takes alot to get use to!
BUT I am slowly getting into it :)
Darker skintones look great in more BLUE based RED lipsticks..
I didn't use lipstick in this picture..lol I know I cheated I used:
Revlon colorstay lipliner in VIXEN & some clear gloss.
My favorite lipstick is So Scarlet from the Cult of Cherry launch!
So what is your favorite lipstick??

Belt $1.00 from stitches on Orfus roadBangle and ring $1.00 each from H&M
The ring is "SAZZY" I love it!
Earrings are $1.00 from Le Chateau on Ofrus road
Smaller chain necklace/headband is $1.00 from H&M

The big one is the most expensive item at $14.90 from H&M

I'm sorry if I gave you guys heart attacks. Theses are all REAL prices from SALE sections in all of these stores.
