The Red Beauty …My Red Lipstick

My love for my red beauty ,the red lipstick is a very serious one… and so today I am going to be writing about this love affair!

This love started in 2012 when my dear husband got the red lipstick  NYX Matte Red ,during one of his trips to Dubai !!  So that makes him responsible for this love affair 😀

He believed that it would go well with my personality, by giving  a complete bright look and bringing in the freshness and beauty…Thanks to him for giving me the boost and confidence in my life😘😘

Why Red lipstick?

Gone are the days when we used to paint our lips red occasionally on special occasion or weddings. Red lipstick has now become a must-carry accessory for many women. You might forget your phone once in a while, but your best friend, Miss Red just can’t be left behind..

Believe me,  today this has become such a huge part of my identity ..If I ever end up wearing a light color shade,  my friends will start asking  why I am not wearing   “My”  red lipstick..

Recently when I hosted a  Christmas party , I had worn a red and white dress .My friend pulled me saying,”You just wear your red lipstick and you don’t need any jewellery!!”   She was very much right and that was exactly what I  did..

Matt or glossy, deep or bright, a bolt of red lipstick can update your look instantly. I think that you definitely need to have some red lipstick, no matter what. You may or may not have a great outfit, but  I feel this red beauty will always give you the extra little pop.

Over the years now , the red lipstick  has become my savior…I feel  it is a distraction from my  dark circles , my wrinkles . It gives me that instantaneous  psychological lift, no matter what my mood is.


My red beauty


Bright red lipstick, red roses, the lady in red— Does it not look  as though all things love and romance are associated with the color red?  Well that’s all a myth and  thanks to the advertising world…. If love and romance has to happen , the colors don’t really matter!!

What is this red beauty for me?

Okay, wearing a red lipstick is not  just wearing the color to ensure our date goes well or get the attention of a crush. Red lipstick is also about determination in all parts of life.  Women who command attention is known to wear this particular color of lip product . A recent poll found that red lipstick is perceived to be a statement of confidence and competency in the workplace. I have a lawyer friend who we call a power woman , who carries herself so well in red lipstick and red nail paints, which is a big inspiration for me, always!

After I have  started wearing the red lipstick , practically  my entire  collection is  all-red …So if I have to point out to just one sticking out, details do matter . So let me go to this favorite red lipstick of mine. which I practically wear almost everyday or , at least 4 to 5 times a week!

The Fatal Red

Maybelline Color Essentials 530 Fatal Red is the perfect red color , which is now “My Red” beauty.. It is bright,warm, ideal for the Indian skin tone.  This gives crisper color from pure pigments . It is also enriched with nourishing honey nectar which gives creamier feel.  Due to this creamy texture, it is very emollient and soothes the dry lips .

This lipstick  gives rich  red color in one stroke and  is truly sensational. For a person like me who licks off lipstick and needs re-filling , this Miss Red does stay max for 1 to 1.5 hrs …

After that it leaves a faint tint on my lips . Well, even after fading ,I love the leftover faded look too!!

Wear your confidence daily and shine … All I need is a red dress and some red lipstick..

So put on the red lipstick and live a little!
