i love a deliberate lip. today i'm featuring fire engine red lips - the most intentional and iconic of lip colors.
i reserve my bold red lips color for the cooler weather, as a smudging and makeup melt are a defined red lip's mortal enemy. additionally, i also usually apply color this intense with a lip brush, rather than using the tube, because precision is necessary.
from elbow to wrist:
- bobbi brown rich lip color - old hollywood
- dior addict lipstick - new look
- rouge dior lipcolor - blazing red
- MAC lipstick - ruby woo
- maybelline color sensational lipcolor - very cherry
- covergirl lip perfection lipcolor - flame
- maybelline color sensational lipcolor - red revival
- clinique long last lipstick - red red red
- maybelline color sensational lipcolor - are you red-dy
- urban decay lipstick - revolution
- hard candy visibly wet glossy lip pencil - candy apple
however, i have two standouts:
if you want the lip to have an almost neon red quality - a red that is truly magnetic - choose bobbi brown old hollywood.
if you are looking for a vibrant poppy red that goes on easily and stays in place (i've applied it without a mirror - that's how confident i've become in this shade), go with covergirl lip perfection lipcolor flame.
