Me when El Hub said that all of my red lipsticks look the same to him:
I mean, come on! Sure, this NARS Rita lipstick and MAC Brick liner combo I’m wearing above is red, and warm, and has a touch of orange in it, just like the Thrillest/Holy Red combo yesterday, but it has WAY less orange in it.
Like, if that Thrillest/Holy Red look has a dollop o’ orange, this Rita/Brick look has just a tinge.
Still, both are warm and red and orange-y, but within that similarity, they’re completely different!
At least that’s what I tell myself as I lust over my 573rd tube of red lipstick…
I think with scarlet red lips like these, it’s nice to wear orange-y browns on the lids, because you can play with the orange theme without it being totally obvious. Something like MAC Texture, MAC Saddle or the NARS Wanted Palette would totally work!
