The holiday season is a time for advertisers to print their glossiest ads full of warm colors and lots glamour. I'm a sucker for all of it. Therefore, on a whim while grocery shopping, I bought something I know I will rarely use, bright red lipstick. After all, who wouldn't need a little excitement with a cart full of kitty litter and canned goods? I chose Maybelline New York Vivid lipstick in 895, On Fire Red. In the package, it's pretty close to a primary red, so I had high hopes. On my skin, it's a little pinker than I wanted, but it's still a nice color.
