I love Rockocco; it’s just such a vibrant shade of orange-based red. I don’t wear it often, as readers prefer bold eyes so I often lean towards those in my looks, but I wanted to wear it the other day, so I pulled it out. I actually look quite terrible in Rockocco alone–the orange-based red does not suit my skintone/face/anything about me. It just reminds me of “clown red,” rather than “sexy red.” My favorite way to make a lipstick wearable is by pairing it with an unusual suspect aka gloss. Hothouse works for me, because it’s a purple-fuchsia color, pigmented enough to change up the color of a lipstick once overlaid.

Possible dupes include…

Rockocco Lipstick

  • Clinique’s Red-y to Wear
  • MAC Russian Red (though blue-based)

Hothouse Lipglass

  • MAC Magnetism Lipglass (LE)
  • MAC Ms. Fizz Dazzleglass (LE)
  • MAC Flashmode Lustreglass

    I tend to wear less eye makeup and more lipstick so I like to see the different liplooks. When you show an eye look, I always check to see the lips you’re using to see if it would work for me. This is beautiful but a big bright for me. But someday maybe… Thanks for showing this.
