FOUND IT: The Best Red Lipstick Ever!

ABM_1386305600

Last year, I crawled out of my nude colored safe beauty box and ventured to the bright vivacious side of reds and pinks! When I found my first red lipstick, I’ll admit I still was not completely sold. Although she was cute and I felt all types of sexy and liberated, she was not nearly as wow-worthy as I felt a red lip should be. 

MUST READ: Why Pink Lipstick Is The New Red!

That was back in 2011. As I thumb through all of my empty red lipstick containers, I find myself still searching for the perfect red that I’d sell your soul for. But enough of the pleasantries and fab sentences! You already know from my headline that I found her–The Best Red Lipstick Ever.

It’s so perfect that I am currently still sitting on my couch with a full face on at 12:35am annnnd…red lip still on from this morning! Ain’t that like the most freaking amazing thing ever.

This red is my savior. Seriously! It’s officially my daily lip attire. She just might need her own Instagram account–@HotRedMamas? No…anyways. The men stare, the women gawk–some even get the courage to switch their train seats just to ask what I’m wearing (that happened today)!

I’m not the stingy shopper who replies with, “I don’t remember what I’m wearing today”! I gladly reveal that it’s Sephora’s very own brand of lip stain in Always Red 01. ADORES!

Here’s the facts:

It’s a lip stain (which means it’s matter than matte)! 

It has a blue tint (just like RiRi Woo but better)!

No need to lick your lips repeatedly (it’s a real bad idea)!

So much so, after wearing for just one day I went back to the Sephora in Times Square and bought two more. You know, just in case they stop making it or something. I don’t want NO problems come this summer.

I’ve even mentally committed the spending $13 and a trip out of my way to get more every few weeks. I swear I don’t want any problems. And worst case (best case) scenario, I will sell my extras on eBay for an absurd amount of duckets because it will be in demand.

So my secret is out! It’s your turn. What lippy are you swooning over?!

  26. GIRL!! THIS lippie is my all-time absolute favorite lip stain. I mean, I dunno what they put in that stuff, but is EVERYTHING. I think what I love most about it is that even though it’s matte – you can apply it very easily and precisely because it starts out as a cream and then dries on. I’m with you on this one!

  27. OK first thanks for joining our #FabFriday linkup – and secondly, this lip stain is amazing. I’m actually ordering it now esp since my RiRi Woo is running out and will never come out again (le sigh). P.S. I always say this but you’re gorgeous, and I can’t deal. And you are wearing that red lip. I’m sold.

    YES!!!! This Red is Awesome I discovered it last Spring. I love the lip wand it allows it to glide on nicely and it smells good also. I always get compliments when I wear it, I only wish that Sephora would do a Pink and Orange with the same consistency.
