I'm really into the red lipstick thing, love any shade of red but the classic 'passion red' is a winning bet. I've always liked to use red, fuchsia and pinkish rouges but lately the very lady-like and elegant classic red is getting a higher position in my favorite make-up items list. The ones with a velvet and mat finish are the best to me.
Here are a couple of snapshots I took a few days ago wearing the newest addition to my collection of lipsticks: it's from the italian brand Kiko Milano and it has a velvet yet creamy finish. Since this brand landed in Spain I've become an absolute addict...plus their prices are very affordable and they are good quality.
I like to treat myself with little make-up goodies from time to time. It's always fun to try on new make-up products and helps cheer me up after a crappy day.
So when in doubt (or when you need some pop of color to brighten up your day or cheer you up), wear red!
