she's popular


recently my friend here has become very popular. and how could she not. she's beautiful, stylish, and eternally young. oh, and let's not forget those lips. i have always wanted to be able to wear red lipstick like that. all the time. i think i would look really put together. people would respect me. i would probably become wealthy and very, very famous. i just have yet to find a great red that stays on, but doesn't dry your lips. any suggestions??

I love her. that just made me put red lipstick on. (Saint Red by Lipstick Queen - it's definitely really red but not overpowering and neither drying or gloopy - I love it)

Aaaah, red lipstick. I, too, have always wanted to try. I tried, but felt silly. I will live vicariously through you... and your friend.

I wish I did. I don't wear it cuz I have thin lips and it never stays. I'm a huge fan of lip gloss!

Definitely Lipstick Queen! I have a couple of her lipsticks and they're fantastic. Very smooth. And she's a fellow Aussie.....

I can see why your friend there is popular. Nars red lipstick is a definite must try. There are a ton of reds to choose from. I have similar coloring to yours and I like Fire Down Below and Shanghai Express the best. I got married in Shanghai Express. It seems to look good on almost everyone.

I wear Russian Red by M.A.C. I love it. It stays put like a fortress and I don't think its that drying. Plus, its said to be the best shade for all skin tones. Good luck.

I saw a young lady a few months ago with red lipstick and dark hair.....I was amazed on how good the two looked together. The look was a classic...a flashback in time.

I wondered why more women do not embrace this retro look...I seldom see it.

I can't pull off red lipstick but the few times I have worn it was from Chanel and never dry! Good luck with your search!

i know! put on red lipliner and put it all over your lips (color them in) and then put chapstick over it. it totally works!

Shesido red - all the gals wear it at Sephora.

Finding the right shade of red lipstick is oh-so-difficult... I came across a good one about a year and a half ago and am afraid of what I will do once it finishes...

ooh i love the image- i had this amazing colour red, but my little one stuck his fingers in it a few times and it was gone. i think it was a YSL
