50 Shades of Red

Okay, so I know that we're still deep in the heart of summer which means that we're still in lip gloss season, but with all of the magazines shifting their focus to fall, I'm looking ahead just a bit to my second favorite time of year and I've set out in search of the perfect shade of red lipstick which is definitely at the top of my fall must-have list!

It can be a hugely daunting task to find that just-right shade of red. It can be like the proverbial needle in a haystack. Some are too warm, some are too cool, some have too much orange, others too much blue. It can get really overwhelming to just look at a package and decide what's going to work for you, which is why I love stores like Sephora and Ulta so much. The one advantage that you have shopping at a department store for makeup versus the drugstore is that you get to try before you buy which means you really get the chance to see how things actually look on you and find a shade that's perfect for you.

My previous favorite shade of red (which also happened to be Dior), was discontinued so naturally I went back to Dior first and it was definitely a massive case of love at first sight. The color is perfect, it feels amazing on and it's super moisturizing. It's everything I was looking for. If I could buy this color by the case I would! I think next up in my search is a hot pink/fuschia and then onto plum. What do you think?

  1. That Dior is a pretty shade, try mac ruby woo as well it has blue tones in it and looks amazing on many complexions.
