while i was waiting, i went to fenwick and browsed their mac counter for a little bit. since it is valentine's day, i was already wearing my viva glam i which i wore to my sister's wedding last summer. it's this really deep, retro red and it worked with the 40's glam style i went for that day. :) but, since it's so deep, it's not really... i don't want to say daytime appropriate since what red is, but it's definitely more of a special occasion wear, if that makes sense?
so, a little bit of browsing, and i located the one. a gorgeous matte red that was just bright enough to be wearable during daytime too! its name is ruby woo and i picked it up, paid and then went to post my package.
it's a retro matte (that's actually what the type of lipstick is called, 'retro matte') so i took off what i'd been wearing and put on some lipbalm (carmex!). then i waited a little while for that to sink in and finally put it on! it's seriously just love. :) i really do love this lipstick, but i couldn't follow my cupid's bow with a pucker like i normally do. :( i had to stretch out my mouth in a sort of reverse smile because it needed a firm surface before any colour came out! when they say matte, they really mean it!
so, this is my new favourite everyday red, i think. :) i won't wear it every day, but i'll definitely wear it a lot. this isn't a beauty blog, i promise. i just didn't have anything else to post about, really!
