During my 'ban' days I had so much to do as I was not shopping and the major job I did was cleaning and organizing. I was clearing all my stuff and rearranging things in my organizer almost once a week ! This massive cleaning showed me prominently that I do not have many red lip colors, in fact I have very very few of them :( I am never so confident wearing bright colors, especially not red. So here is a post to show all the red lippies I have.
Don't think I have some more to show, I have just 3 red lip colors which are almost new as I don't wear them often ! Cherry Tart is one rosy red so I find it a bit more comfortable to wear when compared to the other two shades. Yes, Fire and Fatal Red are truly bright reds.
Maybelline Colorsensational Lip Color - Fatal Red
Revlon Colorburst Lip Gloss - Fire
Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter - Cherry Tart
Why do I hesitate to carry reds?
- It is a bright color that is never left unnoticed. I should be happy about it but here in my city they look at me as if I have done something seriously wrong if I wear such a bright lip color !!
- I feel bright colors doesn't suit my dusky skin tone and rather it makes me look even more dark.
- I can at least carry the lipsticks when I wear them really light but the gloss is shockingly bright that I remember using it just once so far :(
In spite of all the above reasons I wish I can really get used to these colors on my lips some day !
So share your tips on how to carry reds and some shade suggestions that would help me to start up with :) Meanwhile enjoy the swatches and LOTDs :)
