Are you Red-y for fall?

Hey everyone!  I'm totally loving the blogs that Jessica has written- that blog on how to spice up your living area was great!  She inspired me to organize my bathroom (and makeup)this week, and in doing so, I rediscovered a lot of my red lipsticks that were laying around.

A lot of people think they have to save red lip colors for when they are going out somewhere fancy, or for night time.  WRONG!  Red lip color (when done properly) totally wakes up your face.  There are some really really terrible red colors out there, but I will show you three of my favorites for fall.

Can you guess which is which?  The three brands are NYC, Clinique, and Lancome.



I totally love all three of these shades!  Have you guessed which one is which yet?





1st shade- NYC Sheer Red 309
I love this shade, it is kind of a gloss, but not thick.  It is very versatile and definitely has some kick, but with a neutral eye, it would be great for during the day!

2nd shade- Lancome Jezebel
This shade looks ultra dark and scary in a swatch, but is actually a gorgeous deep red once you put it on.  I love the way this looks with pale skin in the winter and maybe a little bit of a smokey eye.  Beautiful, versatile color that has a bit of gloss in it!  Funny story about this lipstick- I was carrying it in my purse one day, and didn't think twice about it.  The next day, I saw this awkward little navy and gold thing laying on the ground crushed up next to my car.  It was beloved lipstick!  I put it in a baggie and that is where it lives, without its beautiful cap, in my makeup container.  Now THAT is love.  P.S.- how did my Lancome lipstick survive being run over yet every one of their eyeliners I have has a broken cap?



3rd Shade- Clinique Dubonet
I ran across this color when I asked the lady at the counter for an every day red color that wasn't too overpowering.  I am loving it!  It has a bit of gloss to it but has more of a matte finish than the other two.  I have really been into this color and have gotten a lot of compliments when wearing it.

Which is your favorite?  I love the dubonet the best because of the silky smooth feel of the lipstick, and the color makes me happy.  :-)

Yours in Beauty, Jessica and Justina
