I alternate between contacts and eyeglasses and whenever I wear the latter, chances are you will see me pared down, makeup-wise. Just a stroke of mascara, barely-these blush but rockin’ bold in the lips department. Pretty much my signature look, you bet.

While I favor dark berry shades more, red is a must-wear for me year-round. Given my sublime experience with Tom Ford Lip Color Matte (check out my review of Black Dahlia, Pussycat and Velvet Cherry), procuring one more shade will definitely seal the deal for me. Trivial but c’mon give it to the girl with insane lipstick addiction, oki?
Similar to my previous experience, 07 Ruby Rush is creamy matte and never-drying. It feels luxurious with too-die for pigmentation. Matte is hard to pull off but Tom Ford crafted it to the level of perfection. Opaque in one swipe, sexy at two, femme fatale at three. Red lips are men’s kryptonite. Add analytical mind and you’re in for the win lady.
Think you own a similar shade? Ruby Rush is true red and like I’ve said countless times, red can be interpreted in hundred and one shades. Believe me, there is THAT red destined for you. Here are some red hues in varying intensity and finish from my ever-expanding stash (reviews are linked):
Tom Ford Lip Color Matte Velvet Cherry
YSL Rouge Volupte Shine Rouge in Danger (deep strawberry)
Givenchy Rouge D’Exception (brick red)
Guerlain Rouge Parade (true red)
Tory Burch Scoundrel (pinky red)
Analyze, have fun but please wear me confidently.
