Just because Christmas is over doesn’t mean the red lip is dead. New Years, my second favourite holiday, is quickly approaching! Which means more parties and reasons to wear a bold lip. I thought I’d share these two reds from MAC because I cannot get enough of them right now.
It isn’t always easy to find a perfect red. Some are too orange, and some are too brown. That’s why for such a bold colour, I shopped at MAC and got their ladies to simply show me what would look good. You pay a bit more versus the drugstore, but I always have a better shopping experience and it’s less overwhelming than swatching 10 different reds on yourself and ruining your clothes.
Above are Russian Red (left) and Diva (right). Both of these colours are perfectly dramatic and I swear by them now.
Russian Red (top) is my go-to for a perfect bold red and I always get so many compliments. It’s sexy and I can wear it for 8 hours and only do minor touch ups, even with eating and drinking!
Diva (bottom) is a perfect wine red for a bombshell look. It looks simply amazing with curled hair. This is a great colour if you want to switch from a traditional red and add extra sexiness! It does need a few more touch ups than Russian Red however, since it is much darker.
These two beautiful colours are $16 each, so a bit pricier than drugstore finds, but they last a long time and I’ve had no problems with bleeding. Since they are matte, make sure your lips are moisturized before applying.
