Makeup Wars: Favorite Red Lippie

You guys – I was certain I was going to tell you about the Rouge Baiser red lippie because I don’t wear red. But then, something happened at Fashion Week. I was hanging out in the Maybelline Lounge in Lincoln Center, where they had a vending machine to give out samples of products. I chose the lippie because I was curious what I would get. Out came “Red Revival”.
I thought “Oh, that’s nice” and dropped it in my bag. But, then I got bored and pulled it out and put it on. PEOPLE. Let me tell you something! I don’t know what happened, but, I *liked it*. I kept it on and wore it out in public. IN PUBLIC, I TELL YOU.
It got to the point that I started my day with it on and even *reapplied* during the day. I do not do that!

So, yeah, I think I have found my Red and it’s as close as my nearest drugstore. What about you? Have you found your red yet?

Don’t forget to see what these other lovelies chose as their favorite red lippie, too:

      This is the first time you will hear me say that, too!! 🙂

  1. Phyrra says:

    Love it! I think I might have Red Revival, somewhere in the recesses of my makeup collection.

    1. Paula says:

      I knew I didn’t have it – I avoid red’s like the dickens, but this hasn’t left my purse since I got it!

      1. Phyrra says:

        I used to exclusively wear red lips. Basically I did a lot of red lips & cat eye. Another great red is tarte lipsurgence Fiery.

        1. Phyrra says:

          err another great red if you’re scared of reds 🙂

          1. Paula says:

            I’ve just never found one that I really thought went well with my skin tone – I am a plum gal all the way. This was actually quite a shock to me!

  2. Pink Sith says:

    What an awesome surprise. But it’s no surprise to me that you look awesome in that color! Of course I probably need that one it now. LOL

    1. Paula says:

      Thanks, Sithy – it was a total shock to me & I have tried different reds over the years. And, yes, now you HAVE to go get it. STAT.

  3. MarciaF (beautyinfozone) says:

    I’d probably have been so disappointed in a red until I realized it was the red war time! It does look good on you and it’s fun that you admitted to the fear!

    1. Paula says:

      Thanks! It’s not so much that I was afraid of reds, just the fact that I had never found one that looked good on my weirdo skin, so I gave up and gave in to my love of Plum. LOL!

  4. CarleenPruessCoulter says:

    That looks perfect on you! Nice stroke of luck getting that from the machine!

    1. Paula says:

      Thanks! I was so happy!

  5. Christine Mikesell says:

    I need to go places with vending machines that dispense amazing red lippies! I really love this on you!

    1. Paula says:

      You can! It just takes an airline ticket, credentials and looking at all kinds of dressed up people and you, too, could get to the magic vending machine! 😉 LOL! And, thank you!!

  6. Pammy says:

    You lucky girl getting this pretty lippie out of the magjc vending machine. This makes such a great story. Plus, this color looks amazing on you. That smile tells it all: this red makes you feel amazing too. That is the best part! I think I am going to have to try Red Revival too!

  7. amy says:

    This is an *amazing* red. I like a red lippie, but I, too, have had a hard time finding *the* red. This, and (the long discontinued) L’Oreal Matte Maraschino have been the only two reds that have made me happy. What’s even betyter, as you mentioned, it’s as near (and inexpensive) as the nearest drugstore!

  8. That is a REALLY great color on you. And I keep seeing it getting rave reviews. It must be pretty universal. Maybe I’ll venture out of my little comfort zone and try it! Thx!

  9. Debbie says:

    So, I was in the drug store yesterday and decided to pick up this color (it was on sale so it was meant to be). The minute I got in the car I put it on and fell in love. I too have been looking for a red that I like and this is IT. Today I have had so many positive comments. Thanks for posting about it!
