Red is for Valentines

5:06 PM

Hi Beauties!

Girls, its February, the month of love. Can you smell love in the air? Those who have a valentine and who don't, can celebrate it alike. I mean who needs someone to depend upon to be happy? We can be happy on our own, with a Valentine or without one. Red is the color for Valentine's day and if you are looking for the perfect reds to spike your day then I have a few products that might interest you. Red statement lips and nails never grow old or out of fashion. So here I am, about to share a few reds from my own collection..... 

The red collection
For your nails you can opt for a perfect bright red nail polish by Marks & Spencer, Mien nail polish in Scarlet Red.

Bourjois Colorissimo lip palette levres in 01 Rouge is great compact trio that has three different shades of red. The best part is its a compact and travel friendly, moreover it comes with a tiny applicator. The lip colors provide sheer to medium coverage depending upon your choice and are build able.

When it comes to my red collection how can I leave out Oriflame, one of the leading skin care brands, globally. I find their wonder color lipsticks very moisturizing and smooth. The shade, Red devotion has a touch of pink in it with a blue under tone. On the other hand Red copper is more of an orange red.

And how can I ever forget Revlon lipsticks? This is the brand which has taken the beauty blogoshpere with a storm with their ever new coming products. From their color burst lipsticks I own the shade #090, True Red.

MUA intense kisses lip gloss in Stolen kisses and Kiss and tell
MUA intense kisses lip glosses fall somewhere between a lip gloss and a liquid lipstick. It provides the pigmentation of a lipstick and the shine of a lip gloss.

Oriflame lip perfection in Red love
This Oriflame baby is my most favorite and cherished red lip color so far. Although its a lip pencil to be used to line lips primarily but I use it as a full lip color by coloring in my lips as well and not just the outline. The swatch picture does no justice to the beautiful red bright, fresh color it is. Its a must have!

If you are into flashy and glossy reds, then Milani lip flash in Photo Flash is the perfect red for you. I find it more suitable to be worn at weddings and night functions where its much easier to carry off the glossy red compared to day time.
