Seeing Red.

There are basically two reasons for today's FOTD:
1. It's hotter than Hades here and if I spend longer than 10-15 minutes on my makeup, I get sweaty and irritated (obviously not a very cute combo), so a complicated eyeshadow look was out of the question.
2. I wanted to wear something a bit out of the ordinary (for me).

BRIGHT RED LIPS IT WAS!


Face:
Origins VitaZing
Sonia Kashuk Hidden Agenda Concealer Palette
Maybelline Dream Matte Powder in Sand
Too Faced Chocolate Soleil bronzer (thanks, Arianne!)
Benefit Sugarbomb
Dior Amber Diamond

Eyes:
MAC Paint Pot in Bare Study
Eyeko Graffiti Eyeliner Pen in Black
Cover Girl Lash Blast mascara

Lips:
Eyeko Liptastik Glossy Lip Pen in Lip Lover

I forgot to take a picture of the lip pen, but it's the one that looks like the NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils...you know what I mean. Click here if you want to see what it looks like (it's not an affiliate link). 

 Lip Lover is a bright, tomato red, and I was actually pleasantly surprised at how nice the Liptastik formula is. It...
 -is very pigmented and opaque
-glides on smoothly and effortlessly
-is moisturizing
-has a shiny finish
-feels rather light on the lips

The best part about it? You don't have to sharpen it, despite it's deceptive pencil packaging...it twists up from the bottom like a normal lipstick :)

Eyeko Liptastik Glossy Lip Pen in Lip Lover


Like I said in this post, I do tend to feel a little "made-up" when I wear full-on red lips, but at least this feels comfortable on my lips (ie not thick, goopy, or drying), so I don't feel like I have to worry about it bleeding at the edges of my lips throughout the day or transferring onto my teeth when I'm talking, etc. Oh, I could just go on and on about the fears and inconveniences I associate with red lipstick! 

And, while I find most red lipsticks a bit high-maintenance, meaning I usually have to use a lip brush and lip liner to get the application to not look horrific, Lip Lover's application is a breeze. What you see above is how it looks applied straight from the tube (pencil?). 

I'm still not really a red lipstick kind of person but I must admit, I feel pretty bad ass every time I wear it ;)

  3. I think red lips add a lil spice to the natural, sun kissed look for the summer. ^^ And I agree, it's been getting SUPER hot lately here in SoCal. Hope you're staying cool and hydrated!

  4. So pretty! It looks perfect on you. And you can tell from your pics that the formula isn't gloopy or thick because it looks really clean and simple. Lovely. xx

    I really like it so far! I think because I got some color during Fourth of July, so it's not too dark for me. I'm like you, though - not really a fan of the scent. Thank you again for it!

    Aww, thank you, Ebru!! I sometimes find more maroon-y reds can look a bit matronly on me, but I'm surprised at how much I love this more orangey red on me!
