Red Lips, No Knickers?

By | August 16 2007 | 23 Comments


The mammy has a favourite expression relating to the wearing of red shoes, and I’m pretty sure I’ve blogged about it before. She reckons that gals who wear shoes of scarlett have no morals, and therefore, no keks. So what she’d have to say about red lipstick, well – I can only guess. But jezebel springs to mind.

She’ll have to lick it up though, because red is a huge trend for autumn. Now, I know people are turned off by it and find it hard to wear, so if you’d like to try the trend, but aren’t sure you can carry off the thick, matte Hollywood style pout that’s been on all the catwalks, why not start by trying something a little bit more sheer?

Like, say, this Lancome Juicy Wear Sheer Duo? It’s an Ultra Lasting Sheer Color & Full Shine Lip which you layer over the top. Glam, but not cakey and scary. Perfect for a first time out red, and at only €21 from Strawberrynet, it won’t break the bank either.

    Kirstie – I really like the lippie colour you have on in the ‘About & press’ section pic. Do you know what brand/colour it is?

  • beautfan says:

    I have a pair of red chews that I adore – they cost me almost €200. I have loads of morals though.

  • Red says:

    I have red sh0es & questionable morals… actually have almost as many pairs of red shoes as I have black ones, and what would mammy say about scarlett hair??!

  • Red says:

    I managed to spot I’s typed the ‘s’ word & changed it slightly, but actually typed it again so my comment got maderated! :-(

  • ams says:

    I have about 5 pairs of red ones – I just cant say no!

    I think this is a bit of a gimmick though – i have the topcoat and its just an average lip gloss!

    Did anyone see the pic of Monica Belucci on the Beauty page in Style last Sunday?? I think she’s incredibly sexy & beautiful, but the pic didn’t do anything for her & she had that lip liner below the lip line thing going on – I was very disappointed!

    I don’t leave the house without red lipstick. Even to the supermarket. Don’t know what that says about my morals

  • Aisling Aphrodite says:

    Red – mammy would definitly have to say you’re a woman of easy virtue with all that scarlet going on

  • Red says: mammy obviously knows her stuff then! ;-)

    I agree, a slick of scarlett is all you need! Let the moralisers be damned! I think Chanel do fab red lipsticks – I have a gorge one called Barcelona Red – looks dark in the tube, but fab on. Also, has anyone seen the new Lancome add for some class of new formula lippie? The shade the model is wearing is just delectable, but it doesn’t say on the ad what it is called. Any thoughts?
