A Dash of Red Lipstick

Red Lipstick- An elixir that is as much a state of mind as a cosmetic product.

The fashionistas are swooning over the mauve’s and the marsala lips but the timeless and classic beauty of a red prevails forever. A red lipstick exudes confidence and power with an element of being overtly sexy.

My affair with the red lipstick began almost 3 years back when I first donned the scarlet pout(family wedding).A moment of bliss when the dominance of a colour takes your confidence quotient several notches higher. My mother however felt nothing of this sort , the colour was very intimidating according to her and my dad was almost in a state of shock. A bunch of relatives too exhibited their resentment and animosity to the shade, adding fuel to the ignited fire. A sweep of red takes you from being idolized to a black sheep. Punn intended!!

But amidst these judgmental notions and preconceived ideas of a red lipstick, I got a new high. I realized that these emotions and reactions were maybe because I was not merging into the crowd. Well… Who wants to blend in!!  As a true blood Leo, I love attention and a red lipstick promises me confidence, dominance and an inflated elevation.

Today it is inevitable and indispensable. Just like a superhero has a signature item to win battles, red lipstick is my Armour to survive the reality of life. In all spheres of life, personal to professional, red lips promise you to be taken seriously. Each and every word articulately separated by the command of a colour.

So put on some red lipstick and live life on your terms. 

Yes this post is a tad bit long but want to finish off this post with my favourite red lipsticks. My superheros gets a special place in my vanity and deserve their due mention.

MAC Ruby Woo

Price- INR1450 ($22)

On days I am low and on days I am high on life, Ruby Woo is my perfect companion. I love myself to the moon and back..call me a narcissist …but on ruby woo days I love myself 100 times more.

Kiko Milano Shade 408


Gorgeous red with a tint of rust. Currently trending item, I reach out yo this shade for an instant pick me up.

MAC Hot Tahiti

Price-INR 1450 ($22)

A deep red with brown undertones, perfect for an everyday look. Glides on effortlessly to give a subtle yet glamourous pout.

Belle Pierre Ruby

INR850 ($13)
Just like every woman needs the MAC Ruby Woo ( I am kinda biased and partial towards that shade ), we all need a glossy red as well. This lipstick is pigmented enough leaving your lips plump and with a sheen.

Sport the red lipstick and gear up to face the world, in STYLE.

Until next time,

Stay Stylish, Stay YOU
