Burning crimson

I've been wearing my Mac ruby woo lipstick far too often ever since I bought it.
But I liked it so much, I really don't care!
There's just something so vampy and noir about very red lipsticks,
I would wear them all the time if I could

Here I paired red lips with a kimono dress for a dinner the other day,
I think they got along very very well.

What is your favourite lipstick shade?
Any lipstick that you can't live without?


It's my sister's birthday today and we went out the whole day shopping and eating! What a great combination right? Nothing else can quite beat that :) I'm not sure why but I came home today with quite a number of furry clothing. Guess it's something to do with it being Christmas season and all!

Oh, I went to watch Avatar last night and must say, I was pretty impressed. I loved it although 2 hours and 45 minutes of it was a bit too long to my opinion.

Can't say how glad I am it's the weekend and not just any weekend but the weekend I've been waiting for forever because my bf will be arriving the day after tomorrow! I feel a bit nervous, but I guess it's normal since we haven't seen each other for 5 months! I remembered the last time we saw each other for the first time in 9 months at Stansted airport, we were both so awkward with each other at first, it's kind of funny. Even holding his hand again felt so weird somehow! I guess I just had to get used to actually being with him again as opposed to just hearing his faraway voice and seeing him only in a small box. Those of you in a LDR relationship might know what I'm talking about!

Leah said...

First, let me say that you rock that outfit. I love the purple tights and the kimono dress. The red lips looked so good on you. Red lipstick is one thing I can't wear, I really look bad with red lips.

And glad that you'll be able to spend time with your BF. I know the feeling. I've been in an LDR before. Have a good weekend and I know you will Sher. Big hugs!

Maria Confer said...

I love this dress on you. Such a lovely print and beautiful flowing style.

I can't live without my Revlon Matte lipstick in Really Red.

I like to play up my eyes. Lipstick actually makes me feel silly most of the time. Red is a wonderful color though. It's the only lipstick I own.

Diane said...

Hy!
I'm also a lover of red lipstick but I don't really use it because it doesn't look very good on me...

I must say thou, my fav lipstick shade is a nude to browny shiny gloss or just nude with violet, pinky accents...This is what looks best on me.

And congrats on having a LDR! I could never have one, I think you need a lot of patience and trust to have one.

kiss!

AMAZING outfit beautiful

Jacqueline said...

I am so happy you are going to see your boyfriend again! YAY! I think that lipstick looks fantastic on you and if you wore it in every blog post I wouldn't care in the slightest. You are beautiful in those tights and shoes and I adore the dress! xoxo

The color looks great on you! and all your outfit is lovely, that shoes specially.
I can leave without lipstick. In fact, is the only make up that I use. I like light colors, in pink shades.

Kisses!
thanks for your comments!

Farah said...

yay the bf is coming home! I'm so happy for you! I totally know what you mean. After not seeing each other for almost a year, boypren and I were pretty awkward as well. But we got over it pretty quickly but that's gona be the same story when I see him the next time. eeeks, I miss him! =(

anyways, on a brighter note, you are looking absolutely beautiful in the photos! love that outfit. I seriously do not think I would be able to rock red lipstick at all!

Keith said...

You look fantastic. I hope this finds you doing well. Take care. Enjoy the weekend. Cheers!

Indy said...

You look so glamorous! I love that shade on you...it makes you look fearless!

My favorite lipstick color is probably Black Cherry by Revlon or Wine Not (also Revlon)...I just love dark lips especially in fall and winter!

I'm so excited for your bf to get there...mine's coming home for break on Monday...I can't wait, and I know exactly what you mean about it being a little awkward!

Dina's Days said...

You can really pull of the red lip color!

I am now a follower of your blog! Have a good weekend!

DIANA DYE said...

Wow the leggings brilliant and the dress so vintage elegant! I love red lips I think we form some kind of secret society we girls who love red lips! When I see a girl with red lips I automatically like her no matter what, it just tells me we have something in common it makes me feel like I’ve known her for a long time! Can I tell you something I hope it doesn’t sound creepy but you have such a nice shape to your lips very nice like a little heart plus the red totally amazing! Love your blog love your comment!

Pink Flower said...

Gorgeous! I know how you feel about LDR's they are great however for building your relationship. I think they add a level of trust that wouldn't exist without the distance. I'm sure you'll have a grand time together, it'll be like you've never been apart!

love, S said...

I LOVE the photo of the back of your heels! Fantastic lipstick too... *swoons for MAC lipstick with vampy/noir-ness!*
When I was in Msia/S'pore - the whole trip was shopping and eating (and seeing family) and it was SO phun :P It IS the best combination! Happy birthday to your sister!!
Yay for the return of the boyfriend! I'm nervous/sad/scared about next year because my bf and I will be attempting a LDR (between the North Island and South Island)... I'd love any tips, potholes to avoid, things to establish before we part? etc.

I've always wanted to wear Red Lipstick, but I don't think it's the color for my lips. There is this shade from Victoria's Secret, my favorite ─ it's more on the nude-pinkish range

muchlove said...

I love red lips. It's stunning! And so is your dress!

betz said...

your dress is GORGEOUS! you look smashing darlin'.

Ruby Woo is a great color, one of my faves is MAC red, classic! Girl About town is another great one, a bold fuscia. I used to be in a ldr, but now I have been married 5 years, good luck, they're not easy, but could be worth it! xoxo Jolie

OceanDreams said...

I love your dress, you look so glamorous! I love red lipstick, I have a hard time separating from my MAC lipsticks in particular. ;) I totally know what you mean about a LDR. I was in one for 5 years and it is a bit awkward after you haven't seen your love in a long time. But...you are so going to enjoy your time with one another and make the most of every moment. Enjoy love!

auxpaysdesmerveilles said...

You look stunning! The red lipstick looks great on you. I'm such a fan of red lipstick, but I find it a bit scary to wear it myself! I just bought my first red lipstick though, so I should probably wear it soon.

Annie Spandex said...

I just got a Maybelline Superstay in Raspberry that is so perfect, I just love it. You look gorgeous!

mica said...

smiles... i feel the exact same way! the 1st moment's always alittle awkward but once u've both warmed up to having each other ard, everything just flows frm there. as the saying goes... absence makes the heart grow fonder! sumtimes a little time away frm 1 another might do the r/s good :D

bf n me dun really skype or chat online with webcam. but we do sms everyday (yeh it IS ex!!) and have chatted couple of times on the fone. guess wat? he'll be cuming over for a 3-day stay after all! feeling happy :)

mica said...

u look really pretty in tat kimono dress! looks very lady and im sure it was THE perfect outfit for the day! esp with the endless walking here and walking there @ malls and with all the yummy foods n possibly cake? :D

i like my lipsticks to be orangey-brown, alittle like honey colour! bodyshop used to have this honey shade which i luved so much last time. but i tink its no longer available :( so im using Anna Sui's pinky shade and sumtimes Lancome's orangey-red lipstick.

I'm not much of a lipstick person, really. I love lip balms and glosses but haven't really taken the leap to lipstick - maybe I will though, because you look fab!
