Confessions of a Red-Lipstick Junkie
I have an addiction to red lipstick. Maybe it's the blonde thing, but I have a hard time passing up a red lipstick. I'm always searching for one that will a) look good, and b) stay put (does it get worse than red-lipstick-bleed/feather? I don't think so). Because of this, I have a whole lot of red lipstick. The color has it's own set of shelves in my makeup box. My daughters have discussed an intervention.
Well, yesterday I found a new one. :-) I think I might have a winner! Maybelline's new Super-Stay 24 Color. It's a lip dye with an attached gloss. Generally, I've had bad results with lip dyes (I'm not going to talk about it), but this one is great! I lined and filled in with a red liner (Loreal Colour Riche in Always Red), then applied the Super-Stay in All Day Cherry. Through coffee, water bottle, and breakfast, it's right where I left it! Woohoo! :-)
I also have another color in the 24 line, more of a neutral-rose tone that I've been thrilled with. It really did last 24 hours!
What are your makeup go-to's and addictions? :-)
