gorgeous in grey red lipstick

I’ve been nude my entire left. Nude lips that is. And for good reason. My mother and grandmother TOTALLY tainted my vision of ever doing any other color but nude. I can remember as a teen the older women in my family would say “red lips are for whores”. (gasps) Oh my! Clearly I was terrified of the red lip for all of my makeup career. But now that every celebrity is sported it. They all can’t be whores right.



I ventured out to my local Rite Aid last Friday and picked up the cheapest red I could find. I figured if I never wore it again I wouldn’t be totally screwed. Apparently beauty brands have all noticed our new love for the reds because I had plenty to choose from. For $7.39 I found Maybelline’s Red Rivival. I am sold.

OMGeezy I felt uber sexy. I mean normally when I “put face on” I feel pretty spectacular anyway but this red lipstick … watch out now! The red I brought was kinda on the dark side which left me curious about other shades of red. I think I will do a “How To Wear A Red Lip” post.

Anyways, do you like?

Check out some of my favorites celebs in red.

      Maybelline needs to have a commercial with real women like us converting to red lips confessing how sexy we feel. I betcha sales would go through the roof!
