Red is a powerful colour. According to ColorMatters, it is all about extremes. This colour symbolizes passionate love, seduction, anger, and adventure, among other things. It conjures up images of strength and an inner fire. Red is never shy or reserved. It always makes a statement and turns heads. No wonder there are so many popular quotes about red lipstick! A few of my favourites include:
- "Beauty to me is about being comfortable in your own skin. That, or a kick-ass red lipstick." (Gwyneth Paltrow)
- "She has a way with words, red lipstick, and making an entrance." (Kate Spade)
- "Heels and red lipstick will put the fear of God into people." (Dita Von Teese)
- "If you're sad, add more lipstick and attack." (Coco Chanel)
See? A great many makeup lovers have been inspired by a bold and statement-making red lip. Though I love a powerful lippie as much as the next person....I tend to choose more neutral colours or perhaps a bold purple colour, if I feel like mixing it up. That being said, I love a good red every now and again. More recently, I've been reaching for the Avon Iconic Lipstick in Holly Red and pairing it with the Avon True Color Glimmersticks Lip Liner in Clear. Used together, they create a fabulous finish.
