red lipstick that rocks the mostest

i’ve always been a fan of red lipstiffie (lipstick in afrikaans), as is evident by the red lip marks on all my friends whenever i wear it.  it happens to children too.  about a year ago, i embarked on a search for the perfect shade and make, so this required some patience; i don’t like lipstick that you have to use turpentine to remove all trace of, and if the shade is wrong, well, it’s just wrong, and with red lipstick, you’re not exactly being a wall flower.

for the shade, a local magazine, real simple, ran an article on how to choose the right shade, taking into account hair and eye colour, and skin tone.  fantastic article, made complete sense, and helped me no end.

for the make, i have always been partial to mac cosmetics for their innovation and guts with regards to colour and products.  also, i really like the fact that they’re keen on recycling.  i was helped to find mac matte russian red, which i now swear by, and attempt not to leave the house without.  check out their site for helpful hints on how to apply red lipstiffie, cos let’s face it, if you put it on in the back of a moving car, you’re not doing it, or yourself, any justice.
