Since going red, I’ve noticed that some of the lipstick shades that I routinely wore suddenly looked less flattering on me. When I went a more vivid shade of red a couple of months ago this problem became more obvious.
For example, most berry and burgundy lipstick shades looks odd on me now- with the red hair, these lipstick colours give me a distinctly late 80s/early 90s look that reminds me of my primary school teachers. Not necessary a bad thing, but not really a look I like on me. My choices in nudes, pinks, and reds have also changed.
I thought it might be useful for those with red hair and prospective redheads to list a few lippies that do seem to look right on me. This is in no way an exhaustive list, just the ones that I’ve been liking recently.
Here is my review done back in mid 2011
I reviewed this a long time ago- one of my very first lipstick reviews when My Funny Valentine was in it’s infancy- you can see it here as long as you promise not to pass judgement on my earlier efforts.
Keep reading after the jump!
I reviewed it here as part of the Ellis Faas Spring Set 2012
