The Art of Finding the Perfect Red Lipstick

Thursday, June 29, 2017

For so many years I have tried to find my perfect red lipstick. Something with amazing shine, long lasting and something that would just go with my pale skin tone. It has always been a fight to find something perfect. I wanted something beautiful and something that would make me look incredible.

I have tried everything from the most expensive lipstick to the cheapest of the cheap at the trendy clothing store. All have made me look bad or that would spread quickly into my foundation. I even begged my mom for her recommendations, but the color was way to orange on me and looked like I was holding an orange in my teeth.


One day I had to run into my local grocery store to get an emergency eyeliner because my last one my dog ate. Ugh. I walk down the makeup isle and a lipstick catches my eye. I grab it and take the top off. I scan the tube is it the perfect red? Does it give me a special feeling when I put it on? I see the color of red and my heart soars. This is what I’ve been waiting for, now hopefully it would look good on me.

$5 is the price. Thank goodness that’s all it was. I thought there was something special about it, something I just had to have. I pay out and the cashier tells me that the brand just re formulated and it had a better feel.

I walk out the store to the car and get in. I flip down the visor and line my lips. Wait what? Is this really the red I think it is? Is this the perfect red? I finish putting it on and rub it in. I bloat my lips and realize this is what I’ve been looking for.

More than just red lipstick, this gave me the little self-confidence I needed in my day.
