Hey lovelies.. I haven't been too well today, I spent the whole day asleep after suffering from a migraine. I am now sitting in bed on my laptop.. which probably isn't the best thing to do.. but HONESTLY I am SOOOO BORED! I think I would have rather been at work. I was looking through my holiday pics..(there are probably 1000 and I always start looking then get distracted halfway through) and I realised that I tend to wear nude lips a lot more these days. This was never the case.. I used to be a lady of MUCH colour, I actually wore bright lipsticks before I even, ever purchased a nude one. I have been wearing RED lips a lot more often these last few weeks, I don't know why but as the days get darker I like the reds to come out. They are so classic and classy, I love them. I don't always like how I look in red lipstick but that honestly never bothers me.. If I like it I'll wear it.

'Russian Red' is one of my favourite MAC red lipsticks, For years it was 'Ruby Woo' and then it was 'MAC Red' but now it's this. I just think its my current favourite red. It's bright, but not too orange and not too blue if you know what I mean. Although I do love all variations of red and yesterday I wore NARS Velvet matte pencil in Red Square.. Right now Russian Red is my go to red lipstick.


What is your current favourite red lipstick? Gloss? Pencil?

  2. Red does suit you (I'm not going to say - Oh you look gorgeous and etc, - you know you do :) and it has nothing to do with the lipstick), and I always look like a kid with my mom's lipstick on if I try any red color.
