Red Lipstick

I've never been brave enough to pull off red lipstick, or lipstick in general.  I always feel like a little girl playing dress up or I look like I should be under stage lights in a musical.  I pretty much stick to chapstick.

But when my roommate was cleaning out her room the other day she found this really red creamy lipstick in the bottom of her purse and we couldn't resist trying it on. And I kinda think the look is really fun. The color is  Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick-Crème 725 "Love that Red".

I like the way lipstick feels, it's not as sticky or goopy as gloss and I just felt like making kissy faces and leaving my mark on someone's cheek. (Truly though I still don't know how you kiss someone when wearing lipstick - doesn't' it smudge right off, do people just not care?)

I'm still not sure I'm brave enough to go out all Taylor Swift-like in public but I think it's possible I've reached the "grown up enough to wear lipstick" stage in my life.

  1. Oh, I agree with your Mom. Of course, here in the South we would not dream of leaving the house without our lipstick on. :o)))) Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. I'm still old school and think red lipstick needs to be worn when you are wearing bold colored-clothing too. I see you have on a plaid shirt with red. Looks good! So, go for it!

  3. It looks so good on you! As a blonde you can get away with just about any color lipstick. For the
    longest time I was convinced that red heads couldn't wear red, until a lady at sephora found the perfect shade. I say go for it! As for kissing, I have no clue! Unless Dan wants to wear red lipstick out too, we stay away from each other haha!
