To be quite frank, red is probably the worst color to wear on Valentine’s Day. It’ll smudge if you eat, kiss, bite your lips while trying to be sexy, or even sneeze. But for the sake of the occasion, we still pucker up by gliding that red bullet across our lips thinking “maybe I’ll look more seductive”.
I’m going to refrain from cracking the typical I don’t need a Valentine, I need more lipsticks and food jokes and jump immediately into the three reds I would wear on V-Day.
The bright one. If you’re feeling cheerful on the 14th, go for L’Oreal’s Color Rich Matte in Cocorico. It’s a beautiful creamy matte fire red. Heads will turn. Your boy will be jealous.
The bulletproof one. Bourgeois Rouge Edition Edition liquid lipstick in Red-volution will stay on throughout the date, the meal, and the kiss. This little piece of magic is your best friend for this event. It won’t let you down, especially if your man thinks he’s being cute by taking you to a cozy burger place.
The favorite one. I can’t imagine myself going out on a special night without having my favorite products covering my face. Although the NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Cruella is not waterproof, it’s definitely my all-time favorite classic red. It makes me feel like a strong independent woman.
If you’re ever alone on February 14th, hit me up!
