Shades of love

Happy February, everyone! This is the month of love so what better way to kick it off than with some new lip colours? As you may have noticed I’ve been especially obsessed with lip balms, lip creams, liquid lipsticks, and basically anything to do with lips since the beginning of the new year. I guess you could say this is the year for lips! Single or attached, I believe every girl needs those feel good date night lip colours that keep her looking her best.

If I could go back two years ago and meet the girl I was back then she would be very surprised about how much of a red lipstick lover I’ve become to this date. It only took so long to fall in love with such a rich colour since finding the perfect shades of red that make you look and feel amazing about yourself takes time to find. Since I personally tend to lean towards reds with orange undertones I got pretty excited to try out Arbonne’s Smoothed Over Lipstick in Currant. This true cherry red with ever so slight hints of orange makes it such a wearable and flattering anytime/any day shade on just about any skin tone.

Red isn’t the only colour that gets all the attention – pink is undeniably the more flirtatious shade that can draw in a different type of vibe and add a sense of playfulness to a wide range of looks. When picking out the right type of pink, the ones with coral tones stand out the most in my beauty books. Guava is a gorgeous coral pink that not only gives the illusion of more full and plump lips and is super moisturizing to have on for a long period of time. Might I add that this colour also gets me pretty excited for the arrival of spring in the next coming month!

What lip colours do you gravitate towards when making it a special night out?

    Happy Feb !

  2. I love both of these! But I would probably lean more toward Currant- such a nice shade of red. I’d have to see it in person to make sure it would go well with my ginger-skin haha! 😉

      Hahah I personally think redheads look the best in red lipstick! It’s especially so much more striking on your skin plus with your hair colour so I’m jealous!

  3. For special occasions I usually can’t go past a good red, the bolder and more vibrant the better. I love the look of the shade Current here, it looks nice and wearable which I love.
