Perfect Valentine’s Day Red Lips With A TWIST

     As we near closer to Valentine’s Day I begin gravitating towards all things red! Red nails, red lipstick, red hearts, you name it. Since red lips are a classic V-day makeup staple, I thought adding a fun twist in would intrigue you Jeaniez into this fun-loving holiday! Who doesn’t love a little glitz, here and there? Allow me to explain. While the red lipstick I chose is matte, and a beautiful shade of red at that, to add a little more “pizzazz” to the look I added a glitter lip topper that transformed the blue-red into a marvelous and quite shimmery pinkish red wonder! This blog post also features a short review of COVERGIRL’s new Melting Pout, and Plush Matte lipsticks, as I am entranced by the AMAZING quality. As a little bonus for you loves, many of the products used are drugstore, besides what was used for my skin (and brows) since I am highly sensitive and I just work best with Cover Fx/RMS Beauty. I hope you loves enjoy xoxo.

The Plush Matte Lipstick dries down completely without ANY transferring. I found the formula to be hydrating, and unlike ANYTHING I have ever used before. The top coat was applied right over, and it felt like a sheer, yet smooth coating of glitz. It easily is built up, and little is needed to make a statement! Please note that if you do the kiss test, the Melting Pout Glitz will transfer somewhat, but if paired with the Plush Pout Mattes, the base color, in this case red, will not transfer, nor stain.

RMS Beauty – Champagne Rose Luminizer 

           Apply this product from the tear ducts up until you reach your eyelids! For the eyebrows, gently tap excess onto the browbones for a natural dewy glow. Light naturally hits here. Due to the fact luminizers brighten and widen, this technique will make the eyes appear BIGGER, and much more awake! Paired with the white eyeliner via the waterline’s, eyes will appear very awake.
