Inspired to Wear Red Lipstick Again
I’m on a red lipstick kick again. Inspired by a recent video by makeup artist Lisa Eldridge, I have been digging around my collection for my favourite reds. Today I wore one of them: Maybelline SuperStay 14 hour Lipstick in Ravishing Rouge, which to me looks like a tomato red.
Ravishing Rouge is an easy red to wear. It is neither too cool or warm, and I think would look lovely on many skintones. Be warned though, when you look at the colour in the tube you will see a hint of glitter and sometimes that glitter does apply on your lips. I personally don’t love that but I love the colour so much I try to just ignore the glitter.
As for the promise of being a long-lasting lipstick, I have to say this line has never let me down. I get a good 10 hours of wear. I have yet to test out the 14 hour claim…quite simply because I don’t get out much. I can attest to the fact this lipstick lasts me an entire work day and into the dinner hour.
