Scarlet Season:  The Glossiest Reds

I wish we had been able to cover more red lipglosses, but alas, red lipsticks do tend to reign supreme!  But since the glosses were not nearly as numerous as the lipsticks, what better way to remember them than with a dedicated round-up just for them?

My personal favorites were Guerlain Rouge Sultan (which is described as a lip gloss, but you could just as easily classify it as a liquid lipstick, but whatever!), Le Metier de Beaute Framboise Creme, MAC Check, Please, and MAC Warning.  Too bad half that list was limited edition or discontinued.  MAC Russian Red makes a good substitute for a bold, bright, glossy red, though, if you don’t have either Check, Please or Warning on hand.

Which were your favorites?

Scarlet Season:  Orange -Based Reds Round-up

I’m surprised (and quite happy about it!) that we covered nearly as many orange-based reds as blue-based reds.  I just feel like we ended up with a very well-rounded bunch of reds we were able to feature over the past three months, which is such a good thing.  It means I was able to tested out numerous shades and variations, but it also means that everyone was able to see that variety, too!

I’m not too keen on orange-reds on myself, but my favorites on myself were Dolce & Gabbana Sheer, Guerlain Geisha, La Prairie Rouge Clair, MAC Rockocco, and Urban Decay Revolution.  My absolute favorites in terms of formula and application overall (whether or not I liked it on me) were Giorgio Armani #401, Chanel Coromandel, Dolce & Gabbana Fire, La Prairie Rouge Clair, and Urban Decay Revolution–they just applied effortlessly and looked it.
