…at least at the moment! I find it so difficult to choose favorite reds, because there are so many that I enjoy. Chanel Dragon has been and still remains my favorite, as it suits me the best, but there are many other reds I wear, too.
Last week, a reader asked for suggestions for eye makeup to pair with red lips, as they are so bold. Though you can certainly wear a bold lip with bold eye makeup, softer eye makeup tends to be easier — these looks reflect five softer looks that work well with red lips.
I don’t think I’ve ever replaced one! I’ve only repurchased a brush so I could have multiples of a certain type of brush. It would be time if a brush seemed to apply product differently than before – perhaps density lessened (as bristles fell out), loss in shape, or a loose ferrule.
Recently, I was very much drawn to the aesthetic of Benefit’s new skin care range – there was something about it that was cute without being silly, spa-like without being pretentious. I love the look of Burberry and Guerlain’s lines overall but hate how they gather fingerprints so they’re just not perfect.
my thoughts on the formula: Revlon’s ColorBurst lipsticks glide on easily, have decent color pay off (inevitably, pigmentation does vary from shade to shade–some are semi-sheer, others more opaque), and are scent-free. They are comfortable to wear without clinging to lips, though I don’t find them moisturizing. The biggest downside is they only last two to three hours (lipsticks wear an average of four hours on me), so the wear time could be improved.
