Red Lipstick: A Lifelong Quest

That is now over. After years and years of searching, I have found a perfect red for my fair skin with a tinge of yellow undertone. Apparently, Trish McEvoy’s Paris Red is supposed to be perfect for me per Real Simple, but as I was too lazy to brave the holiday shopping crowds at Saks, I only made it to the Estee Lauder Company Store. BT dubs, is that not the BEST THING EVER? If your company does not have access to one of these gems, you are SO missing out and all I can do is pity you. It’s like a warehouse of random cosmetics from the following lines: MAC, Clinique, Estee Lauder, Origins, Stila, Bobbi Brown and Biotherm. My company has access to two of the stores and it has to be said that I have to be dragged out of there kicking and screaming.


For the holidays, I was craving a little red bombshell lipstick in my lifestyle and when combined with CO Bigelow’s red balm/gloss in 1138, I successfully channel Marilyn Monroe, that is no lie. I would even go so far as to say the gloss/lipstick combo actually resembles the chick with the drool above, and I mean that in a good way because that color is AMAZING. The red of which I speak is called Angel Red by Clinique. Have you found an amazing red recently? Comment away!
