Guys, I love makeup. Don’t let me loose in Sephora because it can get dangerous fast. Over the years, I’ve developed a strong affinity to red lipstick. I thought it was a fitting time of year to talk about this with Valentine’s Day right around the corner. The simplest Valentine’s Day look is simply just apply red lipstick. However, it’s crucial that you apply the perfect one!
I’ve learned quite a lot since donning my first red shade in Mrs. Miller’s 7th grade English class. The main lesson, however, is that not all red lipsticks are created equally. Finding the right formula and hue is key to having the perfect pout. Otherwise, you will go about your day with red smeared all over your face and teeth (which happens way too often believe me!). I’ve been searching for this perfect lipstick for quite some time, and I think I’ve found a solution.
Shu Uemura, a Japanese cosmetic brand, recently contacted me about their new line of Unlimited Supreme Matte lipstick and sent over samples. I was impressed by the beautiful hues, but I was really blown away by the incredible red #144. It’s hard to find a red that works for daytime, and this Shu Uemura lipstick definitely checks the box. The lipstick actually stays on my lips too and is extremely easy to apply because of the smooth formula.
Highly recommend giving this red lip a try this Valentine’s Day.
