After my last outfit post  a few of you were asking about the red lipstick  I was wearing  but before I get into that let me tell you about a little story about my lipsticks.  Until a year or so ago I never ever in my life  wore any type of colored lipsticks. I always wore my black lipstick and that was all. Without even trying I was under the impression that red, pink, orange will never work for me because of my skin color. I even used to tell my mother how I hated her red lips. Then one day I went to Walmart and tried just for the sake of it a red lipstick and it looked really good on me. Anyone that knows me will  really be surprised the first time they see my red lips lol. I learned to love my colored lips and now I am unstoppable. I have a few different brands and slightly different colors but the 2 that I swear by are the following:

The Lancôme Absolute rouge is just perfect. It smells really yummy but its kind of expensive for a lipstick so I use this one only on special occasions. The Absolute rouge retail  for about  $35 CAD at Lancôme.ca

This is the one I use most of the time . This is the Revlon Super Lustrous Cream Lipstick, Certainly Red #740. Its available at Walmart or any other drugstore. I still use my black lipstick from time to time but now you will most like see me in red or pink.

What kind of lipsticks do you  guys use ? and do you sometimes take risks?


  1. look you so beautiful on this picture ciaa ... love the lipstick

  2. Your hair, the lipstick, the turban, the glasses...all on point!

  3. I love your blog and I lovee this lipstick on you. I have a similar story about lip color except until about a year ago for me all I wore was a little bit of lip gloss. I have since found my red shade which is Nars Red lizard. And have since purchased 2 more lip colors from Nars, which in my opinion is the best brand for lipsticks ever!!! Anyway I will stop talking now. LOL!



Thank you all for taking the time to comment.
