Red Hot

I love red lipstick, it is instant glamour! If you’re in a hurry with no time for shadow, blush etc, grab some red and you are on your way. It has been trial and error to find a true red without any pink tones. I have been in and out of Sephora, drugstores, department stores with my hand striped in various red shades and here are my all time favorites...

Best Red- (on right) Smashbox Photo Finish Lipstick in Legendary $22
Best Drugstore Red- (on left) Maybelline Moisture Extreme Lipstick in Royal Red around $7

These 2 colors are so similar; the difference lies in the quality. Smashbox is less drying and doesn’t bleed. Occasionally Maybelline does bleed a bit and is a touch less creamy but the colors are almost identical.

Wild Orchid

The Femme Fatale handbag has been one of my most popular shapes and has been done in black, cream, and mahogany. I found this ammmazing pink/purple leather color called Orchid and knew it would be perfect for the newest Fatale version!
