I love lipsticks, let's just make that clear. I don't think I will ever have enough of them. I think it's such a feminine and powerful tool. Yes, I just called lipstick a tool. It can boost your confidence in only a matter of one swipe. You can leave lipstick prints on your cups(hence the blog name) or napkins which I find very sexy or get your man weak at the knees.
Red lipstick in particular is my favourite. The perfect red to me is probably a cool pink toned red in a very deep colour. Lipstick has to be rich and creamy, smell lovely and last at least a while. Although, I don't mind reapplying my lipstick, it's an enchanting process by itself.
Being of a pale, very pale complexion that is, I think I can pull of red or simply dark vampy lip quite well. Nude lipsticks don't really work for me, they just make me look deadly, washed out and just boring. So, to make a contrast and give some colour to my fair self, I like to rock a bold lip.
Orange based reds look terrible on me, or even just true reds, I don't have the right colouring for that. I think you should have more tanned or olive skin to pull these off. Gimme burgundys, plums, wines, pink reds, blue reds anytime, I'll rock them like nobody's business:)
I've been wearing this lately quite a lot and it's one of my fave looks, especially perfect for winter. Nothing much on the face, nothing or champagne wash of colour on the lids, lots of mascara and a bold lip. BOOM! You've got a super sophisticated glamorous everyday look which is more than easy to achieve! I love that. Quick and easy? I'm game.

Get your lipsticks out, gurls!
