For a long time I believed red lipstick simply looked awful on me. One day, I was inspired by CamiLovesKiwi on You Tube to give reds another try. At first I wasn’t used to the bold look of red on me, even with very minimal eye makeup minus winged liner, so I quickly gave up and went back to wearing mostly light to medium neutrals… I continued to hide within my “safe” colors. I finally learned that if I wanted to get comfortable with pulling off bold shades like reds and corals, it’s best to stick with it for even a little while ;); afterall, there’s a shade out there for everyone… just takes a bit of patience to find it.
A few years later and most recently I discovered Besame Cosmetics because of You Tube Chrissstttiiine‘s Lipstick Collection video. Since I love vintage glamour and retro looks, I was easily seduced by their Noir Red 1930, Merlot 1933, and Red Velvet 1946. I love their attention to detail, whether the gold packaging with pretty chrysanthemum motif or whistle-shaped lipsticks! Great formula too! So give them a try! Mwahhh ♥
