It should come as no surprise that I’m over the moon about Make Up For Ever. This particular lipstick was highly pulicized as part of the MUFE Moulin Rouge collaboration. It’s not as exciting in the tube..
Last year, my best friend Miriam was going out and needed a red lipstick. She was at her local drugstore and didn’t have much time to spare. She called me, and I went to twitter. There were 7 or 8 responses for Maybelline Red Revival lipstick, so she picked it up. So did I.
I do believe there is such thing as the “perfect red” lip. But it’s not my style to rely on just one color in any makeup category! Take a look at the lip with and without the gloss.
Today’s Lip of the Day is a mix of budget brands. I totally forgot I owned the Maybelline lipgloss, and it worked perfectly with the Black Opal lipstick!
My go-to brown lip liner is NYX Expresso. It’s the $3 knockoff for MAC Chestnut. I apply it first, then rub my lips together like there’s no tomorrow. The goal is to not have a super defined lip aka no harsh brown lines. The particular Black Opal lipstick that I have isn’t as smooth and creamy as the others that I own, and kind of has that old lady lipstick smell. Either way, I’m pleased with the results!
