Here is me wearing the new MAC Viva Glam VI Special Edition Lipstick. MAC describes this is a “soft blue pink” but I do not see much cool tones. On me, it shows up as a your-lips-but-better rosy color which is perfect for the everyday look. Thanks to its Lustre formula, it is also fairly moisturizing and easy to wear. I will definitely be grabbing for this a lot.


Red lips are oh-so-hot this season. It is spotted all over the runway, in magazines and makeup counters. But before you dig up your reds and start wearing them away, read on for a few tips on how to do the perfect red lips:

* Any shade of red – strawberry, burgundy, cherry, berry – is hot! The only reds you should avoid are metallic and glittery red. Self-explanatory.

* As for the finish, matte is definitely the way to go but if you do not have a perfect lip line like me or you are not used to bright colors, use a lip gloss or stain instead. I *love* MAC Tinted Lipglass in Russian Red!
