You can never have red lipsticks enough, right? If you’re me, one is too many… or so I thought. March is fully to blame for this red lipstick thing, it’s just insiduous how you just start thinking about it and then wondering if you really could pull off red lips. This is the ridiculously overpriced Serge Lutens No. 1 Mise en Mort, I think it’s called, but SAs refer to it as 1. So does it work with my coloring, etc? Or am I just thinking it does and will be laughed at when I go out in public? Can I really pull this off? I’m depending on y’all not to lie to me, I need the truth. Do you all also know how hard it is to take a picture of yourself? You just feel so self-conscious and weird, and it always takes about 30 photos before you find even one you can live with. Not like, mind you, live with. The beauty, as I said in Tuesday’s post, is this lasts forever. Sure, it’s 75 smackeroos, but when almost every lipstick I’ve put on comes off in about 10 minutes. This one has been on for an hour and counting, with almost no change, no bleeding, no moving around, all fairly important things in your dark reds. Is it worth $75? Good Lord, of course not, but it is for me because it’s the only lipstick, especially red, that I’ve put on so far in my life that hasn’t wound up all in the corners of my mouth in 10 minutes.So if you think this shade doesn’t work, despite my thinking it totally does, what other red would you recommend for my coloring? And while we are making recommendations, I think I need to trim my hair back up about a half inch or so, yes? Or should I go a little longer?
