Wearing MAC Cremesheen Lipstick in Hang-Up
Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, love. It’s one of my favorite holidays, and not just because it makes it totally legit to eat an entire 1-pound box of See’s Candies in a single sitting (something I’ve done multiple times).
How many pounds of chocolate candy are sold during Valentine’s week in the U.S.? (Click here for the answer)
I also love it for the red!
It’s everywhere — red valentines, red hearts, red candy and decorations. Oh, and let’s not forget lips.
And should you need a little help deciding on a particular shade of red to wear on or around the Big V, MAC has nine suggestions: A Shade of Red For Every Heart. The nine-piece release for lips and nails, available now online, includes some seriously saturated reds, some of them brights and others dark crimsons, and it even features a few former lovers like Cockney Lipstick (remember this beauty from Euristocrats 2?).
When it comes to lips, it’s hard (although not utterly impossible) to go wrong with red; it makes my willpower wilt. Have a look at these four items, which are some of my faves from the launch, and let me know if anything shoots an arrow of lust through your makeup-lovin’ heart.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. How do you feel about red lips? Do you prefer ‘em bold, bright, dark, nude, sheer or something else?
