My Red Lipstick Find---

For Valentines Day, my sweet mom bought me my very first RED lipstick. Now if you've read this post; some of you may know that red lipstick is kind of, well, intimidating for me. 

But I can officially say I found a shade that I love, love, love! I tried so many different red's on (from MAC to Stella)...some were a little less "loud" then others. But I figured, if I am going to do red I might as well go all out. Go big or go home right?!  So I decided on Dragon Girl by Nars. I LOVE that it's a  liner and a lipstick...it goes on so easy, and it doesn't get on my teeth (yay for that) and it stays on for forever!
And I took some of your great advice...first chapstick, then lined my lips, filled them in, and here ya have it...puckerlicious!  
***I know, it's a little up close and personal to my seriously freckled face; but hey a little closeness never hurt anyone...right?!?! :-)

  1. Wow, this color looks great on you! I seriously need to try red lips too! I am always such a scaredy pants when it comes to wearing lip stick. I usually go for more neutral colors when I wear lipstick (wich isn't very often). Hugs, Hanneke

  6. I see the other pics, but not the puckerlicious one? Am I the only one?
    In any case, good for you! I still haven't worked up the courage to wear lipstick.

  17. That is a pretty color! I love that you have freckles and don't hide them! (me too!) Have you ever tried Red Apple Lipstick? I only ask because I am always on the lookout for a great gluten free product and Red Apple is 100% gluten free and is awesome value for money. I am addicted to all their colors!

  24. I'm a huge fan of red lipstick! When I first went to purchase some, I realized that there are a million different shades of red and you just have to find the one that compliments your skin tone. Who knew?

    From Brooklyn with love,

  31. I've been looking for a great red! Like you, I'm of the freckle variety (never apologize for showing us your freks up close - beautiful!) so it's been hard to find one that doesn't make me look paler than normal. Dragon Girl, on it!

  36. I love red lipstick and I feel like anytime I buy one it's too pink. This red looks perfect though. And your freckles are great. I had a lot on freckles on my cheeks growing up. They've mostly faded now, but my mom used to call them my "angel kisses." :)

  37. gorgeous colour indeed!!! I love red lips, but in me I have the same problem you had, I don't know, it seems it doesn't fit. Normally I use more around pink or just gloss
