Welcome 2017 with smashing red puckers! Ladies, give nude lips a brief break and wow everyone in your circle with the one and only red lipstick you need to have and wear with absolute confidence, regardless whether you are a beauty junkie or noob!
I’m talking about Smashbox Always On Matte Liquid Lipstick Disorderly, a deep brick red which compliments any skin color in my opinion. It’s the shade and formula that will elicit queries from friends and strangers, and I’m not even kidding! I have raved about these liquid lipsticks time and again (more details and swatches here and here), because they are truly non-drying with stellar wear time and opacity. Except greasy food, the formula can withstand drinking and light snacking sans unsightly smear. Date-safe and kiss-proof.
If your lips tend to be on the dry side especially during winter, I recommend to exfoliate and moisturize your lips prior to application. I rub my lips with a damp terry cloth and then apply lip balm, do my makeup per usual, then apply liquid lipstick as finale. Not rocket-science but it works.
