Marilyn lips






Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick - Matte Really Red 006
I've always feared red lipstick. There are so many shades of red and I wasn't sure how to pick one. I've heard if you choose the wrong shade you might make your teeth look yellow. I've been wanting the luscious red lip look for a while. So about a week ago I picked this lipstick up on a whim. I had no idea if it would work or not. I have to say I've worn this almost everyday this week. It's lovely. No yellow teeth look either. No pictures of that, so you'll just have to trust me on this statement. I don't know the undertones in this lipstick..purple, orange? I'm not so good with that sort of thing. For me, I just like to experiment. I got lucky with this shade. I love the boldness of it, I'm sure it would make Marilyn proud. Like my other Revlon lipsticks, it isn't sticky feeling. The only downside, as with other lipsticks too, is it stains your lips and skin. I'm just extra careful when applying and makeup remover takes it off just fine. Who else loves red lips? Is anyone afraid to pick the wrong color like I was?

Xo,

  4. Looks amazing, I think this is the lipstick version of the red revlon polish that inspired Christian Louboutin to paint the bottom of his secretary's shoes, and that's when the red soles were born! Don't put it on your shoes though, keep it on your lips!! xx

  5. It looks awesome! I do love red lips but can't really wear matte lipsticks. I have got a revlon shade raspberry that's more of a lustre though and I love it!

    1. I'm the complete opposite! I can't wear anything but matte, it doesn't mesh very well with my skin I think, they always look so funny. "/
