The last thing I need is another lipstick, especially another red one. But when I walked into Sephora intending to pick up Urban Decay's Perversion Mascara that I reviewed last week, I just couldn't resist their Pulp Fiction Revolution Lipstick and 24/7 Glide on Lip Pencil in Mrs Mia Wallace. (I'm so easy when it comes to makeup!)
Both the lipstick and pencil are an amazing red, with just a hint of brick. It doesn't have a heavy blue/brick undertone to it, but it enhances the redness just perfectly. I'm already a big fan of the both the 24/7 Glide On pencil and Revolution Lipstick, so I just couldn't resist this new shade.
The swatch on the top is the 24/7 Glide on Pencil and the bottom is a swatch of the lipstick. I had trouble getting it off my skin, even with makeup remover. I put it on as soon as I got in the car and it wore all night, even through a stint in my friends hot tub!
This red is perfect for Fall. It has just the right amount of darkness to make it a just right for the Fall transition, without losing it's red quality. (Not that we're even close to Fall here in FL!)
Like I said, I couldn't wait to put it on! I'm like a kid with candy when I buy a new lipstick. I take whatever i'm wearing off and put the new one on.
I mean, come on! It's perfect! And I swear it makes my teeth look whiter! As for the flawless skin - do not be fooled, my friends. I airbrushed it just a tad. (Really just a tad) I just couldn't let you see the redness around my eyes and nose from being sick. But here I don't look sick, do I? No I don't! Why? Because I airbrushed the photo! I am not above a little airbrushing, I admit it. But just to be fair, because now I know you all want to see the original, Fine, twist my arm... Here is the original.
Well it doesn't look so bad here either. But that's probably because I have liquid and powder foundation on and concealer over all the red areas. Don't think I'm showing you a no makeup look here too! Maybe one day, just not today. Talk about digressing from the original post. I mean I suppose I could have just used the non airbrushed photo, but it makes me happy. So why not a little airbrushing if it makes me happy? At least I'm honest about it. Don't judge! :)
