Red Lipstick Challenge

red lipstick challenge

Recently, over on R/BrownBeauty there was a red lipstick challenge.  A CHANCE TO PLAY IN A SOME RED LIPSTICKS! In essence the challenge was to wear the red lipsticks in your collection in consecutive days, although, I had a blast doing it in a matter of hours.  The point was so that you’ll remember why you bought them and fall in love again.  And who can turn down a good makeup challenge? Here were a few of my personal favorite red lipsticks I tested for the challenge.

    This sounds like such a fun challenge. You carry all the shades off so well! Also, you have one of the nicest pouts I had ever seen!

    I write Mademoiselle Meets Maquillage and Macaroons and I would love for you to give it a read. Maybe we can follow each other on Bloglovin?

    Great pot, i found i’ve always been lazy for red lipsticks, but you have just inspired me to get up off my butt and seek out the red lipsticks out of my collection and start using them.

    Love the pop of red on your lips. I am very shy about wearing red lipstick. However, looking at your images and recommendation , I think I will give the color red a try. Thanks
