The Classic Red Lip.

Firstly, I would just like to take this time to remind you how horrible Blogger is. I've been sitting here for ages uploading and reuploading this photo. Every single time it wrecked the quality of it. Why? It's never done that before. So this has taken me longer then intended.

I have managed to temporarily fix it by hosting the photo through TinyPic. Let's hope it doesn't stay like this.

Anyway, I was recently sent some Revlon ColorBurst Lipsticks. I was excited to try them as the only lipsticks I own are from M.A.C.

I love the look of red lipstick. I've just never thought I'd be able to pull it off. Especially considering you need flawless skin to do so.

I think red lips look best when teamed with very subtle eye makeup. I am having literally the worst day today, my eyes are watering like crazy and I flicked Mavala Scientifique in my eye. It hurt a lot. So I didn't really want to do any eye makeup.

No time like the present, I broke out the red lipstick.

Please excuse the extra whiteness, this was the best photo of the bunch.

I was taking photos forever but the foundation was showing up whiter on camera then it does in person. Must be a combination of the light coming through my window and all that glitter reflecting. ;) It did give me an advantage of my skin not looking so disgusting, as it does it right now. Lack of sleep, too much stress ...

I don't have any lip liners so skipped that bit and applied with a lip brush. I then went over it again with the bullet so I could get all that glossy goodness.

What do you think though? I'd love opinions as I'm not quite brave enough to wear this out of the house yet. Not even in the garden.

Too me, it's very 60's pin up look. A little bit Dita Von Teese - esque. But I think I quite like it. It's a very refreshing change to what I normally wear.

I'll do a proper review on the ColorBurst soon!
