I've finally found it. My perfect vintage red. Lipstick that is.
Well two of them really. The first is Kate Moss Lasting Finish in "Rosetto" 01. it appears slightly dark but when worn its a really nice classic shade that is a tad deeper and has a satin finish, plus it lasts for ages and ages!
The second is Revlon Super lustrous in "Fire and ice" This is truly an iconic shade thats packed full of super moisturisers and packs a real punch. The fact that it has stood up to the test of time - it was launched all the way back in 1952 and has been relaunched a year or so ago speaks volumes. Your nan would have worn it as a younger woman.. if she was the type who met liked her whiskey straight and her heels high.
Check out the retro campaign! The saucy minx. This a real vintage red with balls. Be warned..It's bad but so very good.
With reds its absolutely a case of each to their own.
What suits one person will not suit another but the fact is a classic red lipstick can work wonders.
Red rocks! Here's why-
The blue tones in cool red lipsticks make your teeth instantly whiter
Its an instant face brighter and stops you looking like the living dead after a late night.
It says confidence. Not everyone dares to wear when it comes to this colour.
Brightens your day
Adds a retro twist if worn in the right way. Keep it classy not trashy.
Chloe Sevigny apparently wears MAC in Lady Danger. She was first sent a red lipstick by Chanel for the Oscars, and realising how classic and glamorous it was is now a firm fan. Plus it was always worn by Marilyn Monroe, 'nuff said really!
A top tip is to layer it up and add a dusting of powder between coats for extra staying power!
