I have long wanted to be the kind of girl who wears red lipstick, but I could never find the right shade (or the courage) to pull it off. Everything I tried was too bright, too dark, too glossy.
And then Taylor Swift started wearing red lipstick.
Now, I’m not a Taylor Swift fan, per se. But I can’t help but admit–the girl’s got lipstick to die for. I was prepared to hunt for hours, nay, days! for the perfect red lip, but the very first one I tried, NARS Pure Matte Lipstick in Vesuvio, was love at first swipe: It’s a true red that flatters my (sadly) pale skin, and even though it’s matte, it’s not at all drying. And the best part is that it’s basically fool-proof to apply (great news since I am makeup illiterate) and lasts forever.
Swifty may still be searching for that long-lasting romance–but I have a feeling my newfound lipstick love won’t be fading anytime soon.
