This Year, My Favorite Red Lipstick Is....

Happy first day of February!  My favorite month of the year!  Aside from being a "love" month, it is the month of my birthday!

To celebrate the month of hearts (though I celebrate it every month!), I would like to share to you my favorite red lipstick for the year!

On a normal day, you won't see me wearing red lipstick except on special occasions or probably special date nights!  Why?  Well, I may have found a couple of good red lipstick brands that works for my skin tone but I find it difficult to maintain them for the rest of the day without worrying much on lip dryness.

Yes, red lipstick can MAKE or BREAK a look!  (And I experience that within 24 hours!)  It MAKEs me look sexy upon application but several hours after, it BREAKs my look with the crocodile red lips that chaps, cracks and bleeds!  (not sexy!)

Recently, I've shared to everyone my SOS KIT that I received from CloseUp White Now (read post HERE). From that kit, I was able to find my best red lipstick to date!  No wonder it's pricey, luxurious, gorgeous --- it's from Coco Chanel!


Rouge Coco in Gabrielle

For the first time, I've found a red lipstick that doesn't require me to "prep" my lips several minutes prior to application!  I don't need to exfoliate my lips with a damp toothbrush or apply a lip gloss on top just to make sure the crocodile lips in me doesn't show up midday! 
Rouge Coco is creamy and soft in texture making it easy for me to apply straight from tube.

I have tested wearing this product the whole day and so far, it does wear off after eating and drinking but I can easily re-apply the lip color and my lips would remain moisturized!  The added plus factor?  The gorgeous shade which is true red, neither warm nor cool so I would imagine any women of any skin color would look good in this!

This classic red shade also helps make my teeth appear whiter even Mr. AMW exclaimed: "Okay ah!" while taking a shot of my lips!

Have you found a perfect red lipstick for the year 2013?
What's the brand and shade?

So far, I have found great red lipsticks over the past years but the Rouge Coco Lipstick from Chanel is extraordinary in terms of its moisturizing properties and of course, the price!  This is definitely pricier than your regular lipsticks but I don't mind splurging once in awhile for my oh-so-poor dry lips!  If you're born with soft and supple lips...drop down on your knees and thank the heavens! *winks*

    1. sis, the SOS kit was gifted to us by CloseUp White Now toothpaste, it is an emergency kit that the company has put together to create "whiter looking teeth" in an instant :D I'm glad they include this shade, nakakaputi nga ng ngipin! :D

    3. Sis, you can always start, but be ready to shell out quite a lot of money (even up to now) lol, even though we get freebies from time to time, you get to "want" to purchase some items yourselves and trust me, you'll always use "blogging" as an excuse to spend! hahaha
