Fictionary: Red Lip Season + A Giveaway Of Napoleon Perdis’ Better Off Red Collection

Fictionary is a column showcasing beauty-related words that don’t exist, but should.

Is everyone LOVING this sexy cool fall air we’re enjoying in NYC in AUGUST (gasp)? 

I’m so delighted not to have my makeup sliding off my face. I know I could never live in a clime without seasons because I’m plum TIRED of my summer clothes by late August. After wearing them for three months, they just start to look… SLUTTY to me. Like, I can’t wait to cover up, rock some tights and some tweed and start constructing my beauty fashion concept for fall. This year’s clothing strat (as my gal Felicia says), in case you aren’t aware, is Russian Sprite, inspired by this image!

Can you even? It’ll involve all manner of furs (faux, don’t get cra) and bright hues. And naturally, it’s not fall without a rockin’ red lip. In the summer, it’s straight up impossible to wear one. It would get all over your white-from-Mem-to-Labor Day duds. You can’t surreptitiously mop off your face with your napkin without smearing it all over, etc. So when it’s breezy and mild (September is the BEST time in NYC), it’s officially Red Lip Season. And Napoleon PerdisBetter Off Red collection provides you with a number of perfect reds in varying shades, textures and transparencies for the occasion. The collection is intended to “democratize the shade that’s synonymous with classic glamour.” Perdis says, “Many women shy away from red but they’re missing out. Wearing a red lip is the fastest way to upgrade your image; it’s face-brightening, teeth-whitening and mood altering.” The collection features a clever pH-adjusting gloss, two stay-sational long-wear liquid lipsticks (in cranberry and ruby), a vintage-inspired palette for the perfect matte pout and more.

My favorites? The Double Agent Rouge Lip Palette, Undercover Red Lip Gloss, Lady in Red Lip Gloss, Front Row Red Lip Gloss and DeVine Goddess Lipstick, all pictured above. And COINCIDENCE (like joincidence with a “C,” as Chandler Bing once said so sagely), I’m offering all five to one lucky reader. Here’s how to enter:

    Napoleon Perdis is just what I need to go more va-va-voom this fall. I’ve been sticking to peach/nude shades, but I think some red would do me good 🙂
    Thank you for the giveaway 🙂

  2. Felis

    A rich true red lip goes best with a golden nude eye, crisp black eyeliner and mascara. Maybe some powder if I’m feeling it.

    Red gloss, anything goes. 🙂
