FOTD: My First Attempt At The Red Lip

For the longest I HATED red lipstick. I mean HATED IT! LOL I thought it was for old ladies with no style. I guess it was because of who I saw around me, the failed attempts of red lipstick on many girls trying to go with the trend. I’ve since changed that hate into a strong like of the red lip, especially since I see so many beauty bloggers, makeup artist, and celebs rocking a mean one! So two weeks ago I finally decided to step out of my lipstick box and try the red lip on myself.

Initially I thought about picking up the “holy grail” of red lipstick’s, MAC’s Ruby Woo. But then I thought, hmmmm let me start off “cheap” in case I’m not digging this red lip. I decided to pick up NYC’s 308 Retro Red. At first I wanted to wait and get a good liner to play with, however I was a little excited and just went for it. First, I applied a little lip balm followed by a little concealer ( a trick I saw on YouTube lol). I then lined my lip with the Retro Red then filled it in.

I think I did pretty good for a first try, however next time I gotta get some more color in the corners of my lips.

What do you gals think? Are you a fan of the red lip?

    It looks great!  Wet & Wild 911 is another great drug store red…I think it’s less than $2 or $3.
