Fox in Flats Red Lipstick Dare 2012

 

There is no way Andrea from Fox in Flats is going to get to call me a chicken for failing the Red Lipstick Dare Round 2.  I didn’t do so well with the 2011 Red Lipstick Dare – a little matter of being ill with flu and looking far too hideous to consider sharing my photographs.

I started a little bit late, but I did it!  Seven whole days, an entire week, of siren lips!  Here’s the evidence.  Yay, I made it!

Day 1 – Love Australis Make a Wish

Day 2 – Kate Moss for Rimmel Rosetto

Day 3 – Napoleon Perdis Nude Rose lipgloss

Day 4 – Napoleon Perdis Nude Rose lipgloss

Day 5 – Napoleon Perdis Nude Rose lipgloss

Day 6 – MAC Russian Red

Day 7 – MAC Russian Red

I have to confess that it took me more than a week to complete the Red Lipstick Dare.  There was the little matter of a hangover on Sunday.  I tried a red lipstick but I’m afraid it made me look like a zombie, so under no circumstances was I sharing those photos!

But I did do it!  A whole week of a bold red lip.  And I loved it!

Thanks for the dare, Andrea, and the opportunity to shake up my makeup routine.   What I’ve learnt from my week of a bold red lip is that lipstick throws pink on me, no matter how red it appears in the tube.  A blue based matte red lip suits my retro cute look and makes my teeth look whiter.  It is far easier to do a muted eye and whack on a bold red lip when you’re running late than fiddle about with layered eyeshadows and liners.

I’ve learnt that I can do a casual red lip with orange skinny jeans, a rock chick date night red lip with smokey eyes, and a ladylike red lip for the office.  I’ve gardened, worked, walked, exercised, shopped, laundered, partied, danced, cooked and  done myriad other activities in my red lipstick.  I did learn, however, that eating isn’t easy peasy lemon squeezy with a bold red lip, but a little ladylike attention to your pout works a treat.  Or I could just eat less.  Nah, that would never work.

I had so much fun with the Fox in Flats Red Lipstick Dare 2012 that I’m adding a red lip to my makeup regime more often.  Love your work, Andrea!

      Oh, thank you very much! I do love the Russian Red. Especially as it was free with the MAC 6-empties-for-a-free-lipstick program! 🙂ReplyCancel

    You rocked that dare Kim! 🙂 Loved the Rimmel Rosetto one the best. ReplyCancel

    • Kim-Marie Williams - 2 October 2012 - 7.54 am

      Thanks, Norlin. That was lots of people’s favourite one! I loved it but it goes very pink on me in about half an hour. Mind you, expensive lipsticks do that too, so nothing to do with the cheap and cheerful Rimmel. 🙂ReplyCancel

    You look amazing in red lippy! I particularly like the second photo – stunning. I love the lippy dare too, I’m really a bit crap at make up but I learnt that a little bit of colour makes a big difference. ReplyCancel

    Hot Lips Kim-Marie. Just gorgeous. I only did one night of that week – anniversary date night – I do love a red lip … and an orange one … and a fuchsia one 😉ReplyCancel

      Thanks, Ms Nikki. I hear you! I’m definitely adding red to my repertoire. But today I’m wearing a bright pink, which I adore almost as much as my bright oranges!

      I’m in love with that Russian Red. It’s such a classic, I have no idea why I’ve never worn it before. Suits you too that one! 🙂
