Valentine’s Day and the 1st day of the Chinese Lunar New Year coincides this year which I can imagine leads to a bit of a quandary for some. In terms of makeup, since red is the colour of love and red is auspicious to the Chinese, its your chance to slick on your favourite red lipsticks! Haha… not like I ever need an excuse 😛
Here are 6 red or red toned lipsticks I like and some wearable colours too for those who might be a little intimidated by red lips.
YSL Rouge Volupte #16 Red Temptation
Creamy in texture, opaque in color. Warm bright red that is not for the faint hearted but if you pull it off, its stunning! Chinese New Year is a good time to pull this one out and if you will be leaving lipstick on anyone’s collar, this is a good one to stake your claim with 😉
Lancome Color Fever #151 – Red Avant RM75
This was released in the Declaring Indigo collection. Yes it is B.R.I.G.H.T and its matte. A combination I rarely go with but this works somehow. Its not drying and applies smoothly. Amp up the glam with a touch of shimmery gloss in the middle (I use my magic gloss Guerlain Crystal Pearl gloss)
