Black cherry is gorg!

Mine is def Viva glam gaga 2
Luckily i have two of them right now and the lipglass but it sucks cause i’ll never get it again >.<

My power red is definitely Revlon’s Fire and Ice! It was my first ever red lipstick and though I do wear bold shades on a regular basis, I like thinking about how much more confident I am at pulling off something so attention-grabbing than I was back then.

Otherwise, my favourite lipsticks to wear for confidence would be my OCC lip tar in Strumpet (with the Sephora color lip last lipstick in Royal Raspberry for touch-ups. almost the exact same shade!) and my Urban Decay Super Saturated High Gloss Lip Color in Crush, as that one’s such a lively bright pink.

My eyes are my most prominent feature, and I have a strong bone structure, so I tend to emphasize those features. I typically choose to downplay my lips, and as long as my eye makeup looks good, I feel more confident. Besides, eye contact is a sign of confidence, so when I’m in a position where I need to make an impression, I don’t want the other person to be focused on my lips. I guess you can say a nude or MLBB shade is my “go-to” when the stakes are high; however, I still enjoy reds & vampy shades, too, when appropriate.

Definitely nudes. My favorite is Tom Ford Blush Nude. I recently bought Burberry Nude Beige so hoping that will be amazing too!

My power red was an Avon shade called Wonder Wine. Of course, they discontinued it. Nowadays I like Revlon Mulled Wine, MAC Dark Side, NYX Xtreme Lip Cream in Absolute Red.

I feel most confident with the Revlon lip butter in Berry Smoothie, because it always looks good on me! However, I also feel confident in any berry-red lip color; one I own and love is Red Velvet from Revlon.

I dont own a lot of lipsticks, but I feel confident with my NARS Jungle Red, Chanel Rouge Coco in Peregrina and Jersey Rose.

I wish I could say a bold red or a deep berry, which I do wear about twice a year for veeery special occasions 😉 but I am too shy to wear those. Instead I’d have to go with a beautiful coral (e.g. NARS New Lover in that jumbo pencil form) or a great MLBB (such as UD’s Naked, also in jumbo pencil) that hugs the lips well.

it really depends on my mood. When I want to be taken seriously or have a ‘get stuff done NOW day’ I grab Revlon’s Really Red (matte), on days when I’m more relaxed its a tinted lip balm, days I’m girly and princess-y it’s my Candy Doll baby pink lip concealer and gloss and on days when I’m feeling kooky and creative it’s Mac’s Hang Up or Lime Crime’s Chinchilla. I definitely have taken a likely to lipsticks more as I’ve gotten older as I wear fairly bold glasses and have hooded eyes. And it takes less time!

Revlon Sweet Tart!

It’s bright and everyone compliments me on it. Plus when it fades it leaves a bit of a stain on me, so I am confident that it always looks good, even if I’m eating.

My power red is Tom Ford Diabolique, but I also enjoy shades like Hourglass Icon, Dior Diorling, GA Lip Maestro 400 and so on immensely! There’s something about painting on a red pout that is very empowering, though sometimes I feel I attract a bit too much attention that way.

Definitely a red lipstick. My favs are Mac Ruby Woo and Nars Dragon Girl. They just empower me like no others. I feel seductive, sexy and in control. It’s a psychological thing, I suppose.

Revlon Colorburst Lipgloss in Bordeaux! It’s such a gorgeous deep berry that stains pink, makes me feel much prettier!
