A girl can never have too many reds right?  Right!  You need a ‘red’ for the car, your purse, home, your other purse that you only use when you go out, etc.  Here are 5 must haves for your collection!


These are 5 must haves because they are quality lippies and vary tremendously in pricing.  Something for everyone!  But what makes a good lipstick, “good”?  Because I already know that red is good shade for me, first thing I look for in a red lipstick is the texture.  Is this going to stay on my lips or my teeth?  This is a HUGE reason why I tend to choose ‘matte’ type lipsticks.  If the lipstick is too creamy, I can guess where it will end up.  The next big thing I look for is the ‘long-wearing’ ability.  If the lipstick is hard to get off of your lips in the store, buy it!  That color is not going to fade and you will not have to continuously reapply.
