I don’t know what it is but I’ve always found wearing Red lipstick makes me feel like a clown. In fact, any bright coloured lipsticks make me very aware of my mouth and I simply feel uncomfortable drawing that much attention to to it. However, bright red lips is a massive trend right now (I blame True Blood!). In fact, it seems everywhere I turn, I’m seeing women rockin’ the red-lip-look and doing it well.
So I purchased a M.A.C Ruby Woo lipstick and decided to brighten up my lips! I actually really love it now. The first few tries I was constantly worried about it being on my teeth but soon relaxed into it. It made me feel sexier too, like I was a little femme fatal character! I wore it to an audition and got the job so I now refer to it as my “lucky lippy”. People commented and complimented me on how I looked when I wore it too and I think that’s because it really makes an outfit pop. It even dresses up work-wear for those all important after-work drinks! My only complaint would be that you have to reapply fairly often which is a little too high maintenance for my taste and I’d probably prefer a lip-stain.
I’d recommend giving it a go and let me know how it made you feel!
