The Perfect Red Lipstick



Red lipstick never seems to go out of style and red lips are still hot for Spring. I have tried many a tube of red lipstick, trying to find the perfect hue. The latest one I tried (above) is MAC Red with Redd lip liner and it's not too shabby but it still bleeds a bit so I am still searching for The One. Is there such thing as a perfect red lipstick? What is your favorite? (My photo buddy above is my cat, Prints Whiskerson Sultenfuss The First, aka "Kitty." She's crazy. No, really.)

Here are some ladies who rocked the red

Gwen Stefani

Anne Hathaway

 Marilyn Monroe

Oh, and FYI: While I was googling for pics of Marilyn Monroe I came upon her chest x-rays. They are available on ebay if you're interested ; )

You're from Edmonton as well? Wonderful! It makes me happy to see other bloggers from the same city. AND I see that you are new to it, so welcome to the blogging world! Your lovely blog had me scrolling back to your first posts. I WANT TO GET A CAMERA LIKE YOURS! It's all about the focused image in the foreground and the blurred background, and i just CANNOT get that effect with a normal camera. Anyway, wonderful style and photos! THanks for stopping by. I would love to exchange links, and I'm "following" you!

this is a wonderfully vibrant red! I think it's so amazing how a little bit of colour on the lips can make you shine even in a simple outfit. One of my resolutions for this year is to wear more lipstick :)
Cuteeee cat btw!

I'm doing a little giveaway at the moment, check it out on my blog if you like!

Have a lovely day! :)
