Valentine’s Day Makeup – Get the Perfect Pout, Part 2

Is the red lip not a classic choice for Valentine’s Day? I mean, the day is themed with pink and red, so it seems only fitting, right? This post is full of some of my favorite MAC red glosses/lipsticks that I thought I’d share with you! Each product is worn alone, when typically I would wear a lipstick and a gloss together (I rarely wear either by itself!). Unfortunately, several of these are limited edition, which means you may be updating your wish list over at MakeUpAlley soon! I love Check, Please lipglass for its really, really deep blood red color and super glossy finish. Perpetuate prolongwear is my choice for a kiss-proof red (and while it may not be make-out proof, it gets through without too much damage), and it is also a very nice deep red that isn’t too over the top or bright.

I hope this post shows how versatile reds can be (and these are just some of the ones that MAC offers), and even if you haven’t found your shade yet, keep looking and you’re bound to find one that suits you well!

Lip swatches include: Check, Please lipglass (pictured above; LE from Nordstrom 1+ year ago); Red Romp lipglass (Antiquitease); Witty lipglass (Stylistics); Classic Dame mattene (Mattenes); Stylistics lipstick (Stylistics), Rockocco lipstick (Rockocco); Russian Red lipstick (permanent!); and Perpetuate prolongwear (not sure of status, check your store).
