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! I can model it for you, if you click the link below.
MAC Styledriver ‘Driven by Love’. Everything I dreamed it would be. Literally. It was the exact color that I chose for my submission for the “MAC Blogger Obsession” collection. Not at all in a bitter, “I can’t believe they didn’t choose me kind of way”, or a “they took my idea kind of way (because these collections are created months upon months in advance)”. I was more so thinking “I should have known this color was coming out, so I should have chosen a whole different concept” kind of way. I don’t think I can give explicit details, because we signed contracts. All in all, I love this lip color!!!
Eden Rouge Mattene lipstick is an instant winner just because it’s a Mattene. I live for them. They are silky smooth, weightless and last forever. It’s not the most interesting red lipstick I’ve ever seen in life, but it sure does look good!
Note: This product was sent for possible review consideration. This gave me the ability to touch, swatch and accurately review the product. This post reflects my honest opinion.

The three drugstore picks [Black Opal, Cover Girl Queen and L'Oreal HIP] are superb alternatives to pricey department store reds! I doubt you’ll be disappointed!
