Red Lipstick Challenge

Back in November I came across Fox in Flats Red Lipstick Dare which sounded like a great thing to try.

Usually I forget to put on lipstick, and I certainly almost never re-apply during the day.

So off I went to Boots in search of a new red lipstick.

I didn’t complete the challenge as I didn’t manage to wear red lipstick 7 days in a row.  I managed two in a row and then on the third day, red lipstick just didn’t go with what I was wearing to work that day.

Then when I was on holiday in Budapest, I did manage to wear it (but again not for the whole holiday).

Just from these few times I was impressed by the power of red.  It is my favourite colour, but because it is so bold on your lips, I know that I hold back from wearing it.  Which I shouldn’t.  I should make the effort more often.

I didn’t succeed in completing the dare of 7 days in a row, but I gave it a go.  It was fun and now I have a new lipstick to use.

    I’m not sure I have the confidence to wear red lipstick, it’s always kind of scared me! Well done for trying it out! :) #AllAboutYou

      I totally agree with your comment Morgan – it scared me too. Then when I saw this challenge, I thought why not give it a go.

    What a great idea! There are so many tones of red lippies out there, and it’s fun to do something that takes you out of your comfort zone. I think that the red you chose looks fab on you by the way! Thanks so much for linkin up to #AllAboutYou
