My love for dark lipsticks, especially for fall and winter, is no secret around here. Up until now though I never quite dared to actually buy one since I was pretty sure it wouldn't suit me. A few weeks ago (at Halloween to be exact) I finally took the plunge. I was in desperate need of a last-minute halloween cotume and the only thing I could come up with was to dress up as black widow. You know black dress, fascinator and obviously dark red lips. The whole nine yards.
Anyways with the help of a very nice salesgirl at our local beauty shop and after what must have been like fifteen different shades of 'dark' red, we finally found the perfect one! (You can see the final result here.) I have to admit, even though I bought the lipstick only as part of a halloween costume, I find myself gravitating towards it more often than not theses days. It's just perfect for going out on the weekends if you want to give your look a special twist.
So if you are on the hunt for a dark red lipstick I can't recommend this one enough. :)
