Winter Red

I've been avoiding purchasing new beauty and skincare products this month and I've also been trying to go through all of my makeup and skincare products and look at what I have quite critically, deciding what to keep and what to pass on to the people around me who have requested the things that I don't want any more because I have a whole lot of extra beauty product and samples. They sit around or get used once or twice and I decide they're not right for me and I feel guilty just having them when I know I'll never use them again.

I recently went through my lip product pocket and dug out this MAC Ruby Woo lipstick I bought a while ago in my hunt for the perfect red. It makes for an interesting photograph but I think that it's just a bit too dayglow against my skin for everyday use. I've decided to hang onto it for the time being because it's a very charismatic color. I don't think it looks bad on me, per say, it's just a little louder than my usual makeup but I think it'd be fun to wear out places, especially at night so I'll be putting it back into rotation.

If you're curious, I did eventually find my perfect red lip color: MAC's Russian Red. A makeup artist put it on me and I fell in love instantly and went and bought the shade the very next day and have been wearing it ever since!

    1. I did have to size down - it runs really, really large! I bought a size 2 and it's just right. Typically I wear a four or a six in dresses.
