Hello! It’s your resident lipstick junkie enabling you for yet another purchase. Apologies in advance?
I love a velvety red lip, and I’m sure this is popular opinion. Who can resist a classic red lipstick that instantly brightens your face and makes you look like you put some effort in to your appearance even though you probably just slapped it on in the elevator on your way to work (that could be just me).
Wearing: EX1 liqud foundation in F200 / Nars Radiant Creamy concealer in Custard / Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit (I purchased mine from Amazon) / Wet n Wild Icon Blush in Mellow Wine (So happy they’re now in Dubai!) / Marc Jacobs Magic Marc’er Precision Pen / Rimmel Argan Mascara / Illamasqua lipstick in Box / Bobbi Brown Natural Brow Shaper in Mahogany
So, a few months ago, THE Alex Box, Creative Director of Illamasqua, hosted a glamorous event to show off Illamasqua’s new collection. Apart from giving me major hair envy with her Cruella Deville hair color, Alex Box also gave us a live demonstration.
The end result: (also, Alex Box and Illamasqua regrammed my photo that night, major highlight of my instalife)
After the event, we got little goodie bags filled with a few Illamasqua products and that is how I came to possess Box. It’s everything you need in a red lipstick- longwearing, pigmented and it makes your teeth look whiter. I reach for Box whenever I’m in a hurry or too undecided about my make up. It’s just a beautiful, classic red lipstick you simply can’t go wrong with. I definitely recommend trying it on at your nearest Illamasqua store just to see if it’s the perfect red match for you.
So, what’s your go-to red lipstick?
