My Favorite Red Lip

My Favorite Red Lip


Lipstick: Kat Von D Beauty

Hi loves! If there's one beauty product I love almost as much as my winged liner, it's a solid red lip.  It's just so classic, so cute, and always looks good.  Plus, I can't help but feel extra confident whenever I wear one.  I don't know why, maybe it's just the bold color.  But regardless, a red lip is not only the perfect "accessory", but the perfect confidence booster.  

I've been looking forever to try to find the "perfect" red lip.  I've tried NARS "Cruella" , Jeffree Star "Redrum" , and M.A.C "Rubywoo", but none of them were the absolute perfect red.  Some were too patchy, some were too orange, and I wasn't totally thrilled with any of them (except maybe Cruella, which I like if I want a really subtle red).  
So I guess it's only fitting that my favorite makeup brand, Kat Von D Beauty, produced my all-time favorite red.   

This warm, brick shade is the absolute perfect shade of red for darker complexions (aka, us brown girls better stock up on the beauty), and is just so flattering.  It's not crazy bright, but it's by no means dull, either.  It's the perfect balance of the two, and could easily work for every-day, or for a night out on  the town.  

I think the best thing about this shade, however, is that not only is it beautiful, vegan, and cruelty-free, but the proceeds of it also go to "Project Chimps", an organization working to save chimps from lab testing.  By now, I think's I've been pretty vocal about my stance on animal cruelty (aka I don't have any tolerance for it), so when I see products that go to helping the animals, rather than harming them, I always love to help out the cause.  

What do you all think of this shade? Do you love it as much as I do? If you do, you can check it out here
