What’s on my mind now….red lipstick

Fall brings along the start of many things…..shorter daylight hours, everything pumpkin, warm cozy fires, and beautiful foliage.  Fall is also when I start wearing red lipstick again. After a summer full of balms and gloss, I’m happy to dig through the lipstick drawer and pull out a nice red…..

If you’re like me and love your reds…..L’Oreal Paris has got you covered.  Check out these 3 Colour Riche Reds that I snagged during tiff at the L’Oreal Beauty Lounge.

They all look delicious, don’t they…..but let’s take a peek at each one individually.

This is Frieda’s Pure Red-and I have to say the first of the three that I was ‘drawn’ to….it’s a blue based red that leans pink, right up my fair skinned alley.

Next up, Blake’s Pure Red….definitely more brick-ish in terms of red.  This is the type of lipstick I’d wear after having my teeth whitened.  I like this color-it’s rich and has a ‘come over here’ type vibe about it. Very sex kitten in my opinion.

And finally, J. Lo’s red-what I’d term a ‘neutral’ red or ‘true’ red’ -this is neither warm or cool toned.  IT’S JUST RED. And I love it.  This red is the type of red I’d wear with a t-shirt and jeans but also put this on for drinks with the ladies.  This red will take you from day to night for sure.

So what’s your story?  Do you love to rock a red lipstick in the fall/winter like me? Or do you wear reds all year round?

    Beautiful colours! I don’t have the skin tone or the cajones to wear bold reds!

    I love all these reds, they are just so pretty. Blake might be in my top 5 red lip shades right now.
