The Red Lipstick Redux

Red lipstick is one item on a long list of things I can’t pull off. No matter what the season, what I am wearing or my mix of makeup, it perpetually makes me look like I’m heading off to a Halloween party or a junior high dance recital-and that’s putting it mildly.

The only reason I agreed to try Buxom’s new Lip Tarnish in Busted was because it was sporting a just-perfect pencil sharpener on the end, and I was in desperate need of one. Plus, I couldn’t help but wonder what was going on with this tiny sensation in a tube, whose packaging boasted its tinting, shining, moisturizing and plumping power.

Much to my surprise, the creamy pencil left behind a completely natural-looking shade of red that stayed on like a stain but was soft almost like a gloss. The color looked amazing and offered the just-right balance of a punch of red (think glamorous ’50s siren) without looking garish or overdone. Seriously, no matter what your preferred shade is, you can’t go wrong with this standout.
