I'm stepping out of my comfort zone in the realm of red lipstick today with this bright orangey red shade! I'm no stranger to red lipstick (or any color lipstick for that matter), but this might be the first color that made me second guess my look. While I don't hate the way it looks on me, after seeing these photos it's safe to say that I think I would've liked this gold eyed look much better if it was paired with a more blue red or even a shade with a little purple or brown in it.
I think I'm going to pack my orangey shades in the back of my makeup drawer until Summer, but I didn't want to didn't want this look to go to waste. Gold eyes and red lips will always be one of my favorite looks and with Valentine's Day coming up I'm sure both you and I will be wearing it soon!
