Rouge Kisses

The red lip is classic and chic, a statement lipstick colour. The red lip is tacky and cheap when it bleeds or stains your teeth. The red lip is bashful as well as confident, seductive and fierce. From the loudest red to the richest, there is a shade to suit everyone! Invest in a variety of hues; it’s a diverse shade as well as a lip colour that can save the underdressed.

“there is a shade to suit everyone”

From Marilyn Monroe to Sade Adu, whether matte or hi-shine glossy, the red lip is indisputably iconic. Although I appreciate red lipstick and often find myself admiring the shade on others, it will never be my first choice. However, I acknowledge its impact and accept it’s a lipstick colour everyone should own.
