What day is it again?
I kid, I kid! It’s Day FOUR of my lipstick challenge and today I will be sporting my Fantasy Allure Enchanted Rose liquid matte lipstick. Isn’t that a mouthful?! Completely worth it though because I love this color.
I have been a fan of red lipstick ever since I was 5 and happen to see a snippet of Gwen Stefani belting “I’m Just A Girl” with No Doubt while sporting her classic red lips. Now it would be years later before I would finally buy my first No Doubt CD and a few years after that before I was brave enough to actually wear red lipstick but once I took the plunge I couldn’t get enough.
Honesty is the best policy and I will freely admit to having a fairly large lipstick collection. I collect them like Pokémon cards and really can’t leave a makeup store with out pick up at least one new one. I have a particular affinity for red lipsticks, as you will notice throughout this challenge. You will see me supporting a lot of different shades of reds.
I think that for me because I was so shy and insecure seeing red lips was really bold and powerful. I would look a people and think, damn I wish I were that confident. Now that I’ve grown into myself a bit I can’t help but look at red as a power shade when it comes to my lipstick. I can’t help to be reminded of the times I would wear around the house just to see what it looked like but was much to scared to actually step out the door.
Now I wear every shade under the sun but red will always be my favorite!
Even though this shade is a recent purchase it has already become my favorite. I love how it has smidge more of a rosy undertone then a normal brick red lipstick. I also love that is matte and to top it all off when I step into the sunlight you can see a shimmer of gold. Perfection!
