i was inspired by this post on the birchbox blog to investigate how to play nice with red lip color. we all know i’m fair and my makeup preference is conservative girly – i fear spicy and edgy. i love, however, the idea of the red lip and have been determined to overcome my shyness and sport this classic shade with confidence. the lipstick queen herself (i should have known she would have the solution!). poppy king, has won me over with her fired up gloss, the sheerest juiciest red that gives my lips a hint of what they’re longing for without scaring my coworkers. the brush applicator is, well, the bomb, the formula is nonsticky and the long slim tube makes this guy so purse friendly you’ll want it to live there forever. ta da! confidence boosted.
fired up is available online at barneys for $18.
