Wine-Stained Lips

Wine-stained lips are sultry, bold, eye-catching & flirty.
And, they are quite fun.

I used to think red lips were too "old". Now, as I mature in my personal style, I think it's a fabulously feminine way to freshen up any look.


Lately I've been sporting the red-lipped look frequently. After trying out a few different shades, the color I am most fond of on me is a rich wine-red. Since I have paler skin with pink undertones, this color fits well. {The lipstick I'm wearing in the above photo is Lovely Rogue by Milani. I'm also fond of Zinnia Red by Dior.}

What shades are you crushing on this fall?

  3. My favorite red lipstick is like a true red, from the Poppy King for J.Crew collection. It's just so bright and makes me think of apples :) Thanks for your sweet comment on my blog last night!

    Who'd have ever thought a fuschia lip would be flattering?

  9. Oh what a beautiful picture - You look great with red lipstick! Red lipstick has always been a favorite of mine - it's definitely because I grew up admiring it on my Grandma - it's her signature shade, haha!

    Hope you have a great weekend! :)

  13. I love very bright lipstick. Strong red with a touch of orange in it. Or orange itself, or neon pink.

  18. Red lips are so back in. I agree, they can really punch up the look of some of your classic outfits.

  19. I love red lips, and red wine is definitely my favorite shade for fall! I tried out a peachy lipstick this summer, but I don't think it really suited me. The only problem is I am always to lazy to actually apply lipstick consistently, I have like 5 different ones lying around that are barely used.
