I never wear red lipstick. NEVER. The reason why I never wear it is because I never thought it would look good on me. I mean, I've tried before in the past, but I could never find the right red for my skin tone. Who knew that I would find it in a $2.99 lipstick at my local drugstore?
Wet N Wild's Mega Last Matte Lipstick in Red Velvet 910D is the most gorgeous shade of red-red. It is bright, brilliant, and bold. The color is extremely rich and pigmented and has a beautifully velvet matte finish.
Upon application, I was a teensy-bit disappointed with the thick, mildly dry, rubber-ish texture. But I had to forgive because the color payoff was so worth it. I didn't need primer, liner, or gloss. I smoothed it on straight from the tube and did some mild shape-refining with a lip brush. Voila, instant old-Hollywood glam!
As for the glasses, my sister and I have been so obsessed with the retro, geek-chic look that all the popular girls have been rockin'. Problem is, the real deal, Ray-Ban Wayfarers, cost upwards of $100. That's all well and good if you can afford it. Unfortunately, I can't. The good news is, we DID find a way to get the look for less. Sunglass Warehouse sells a passable replica for $12.95 a pair. We liked it so much we bought 3 pairs and split the cost. The caveat? Since they're basically a clear, plano pair of lenses, you either need 20/20 vision or contact lenses to sport the look. Otherwise, they're a super-cute, inexpensive accessory that will add charm to any ensemble.
