Call me "Tardy for the Party" but I’m just now appreciating matte red lips.
There’s something so powerful, sexy and fierce about them.
The look says a lot without saying a lot.
It's bold. Scary. Daring.
I love a cherry-painted kisser with minimal make-up, black eye-liner and mascara, and a touch of blush.
Usually, I wear red lipstick when going out to the movies or dinner.
I’m too scared to wear it to work. I ain't ready yet.
I own three tubes of red lipstick in my beauty arsenal: Buxom's "Barcelona," Sally Hansen's "Golden Berry," and NYX's "A Tribute to Marilyn."
Now let's take a look at these scarlet lippies in action on my lips!
First up, we have Buxom's Big & Healthy "Barcelona" lipstick:
Next is Sally Hansen's "Golden Berry" lipstick:
And last but not least, "Tribute to Marilyn" from NYX:
My fave is Buxom's "Barcelona." I wear this lippie the most and I think this red is more complimentary against my brown skin than the others. Plus, it has a cute little sharpener hidden at the end-cap of the lipstick tube.
Are you a fan of the red, matte lip too? What’s your fave red lipstick?
