Going Red: The Red Lip Experiment, Day 2

Okay y'all, I liked today's lips much better than yesterday's lips.

Well, they are my same lips of course, so I guess I should say I like this color a wee bit better.
These lips are courtesy of Maybelline 24 hour lipstick in All Day Cherry.

And they did not lie.

I do not know what's in this stuff (and that might be a good thing) but it lasts f.o.r.e.v.e.r.

I have eaten, sipped water and coffee, brushed my teeth twice and yet All Day Cherry lives on. For reals. I like this shade of red too, it's a bit warmer, not too pinky red and there's even a hint of sparkle. I've worn this 24 hour stuff before, mostly in much lighter shades, and have been scarily impressed each time by how well and long it wears. The secret is, and you MUST do this, is to apply the color and wait about 2-3 minutes for it to set (dry) and then you apply the clear glossy balm conveniently located at the other end of the tube. If your lips start to feel dry during the day just add more balm. The other thing I like about this brand is it doesn't smear (feather) or leave lip marks on your coffee mug, water glass, or the husband. I even wiped my lips after eating Pei Wei tonight and my napkin was not besmirched. Freaky, but true.

I don't know if it's the shade of this red or the fact that I'm now two days into this Go Red or Go Home challenge, but I didn't totally feel like my lips entered the room waaaay before the rest of me did.

And that's a good thing.

I've really appreciated your feedback, thanks for being honest.

Coming soon to a computer screen near you...Go Red: Day 3. Stay tuned, y'all.

  3. That's super pretty, especially with your eye color! Are you using a lip pencil/liner with these red choices or are you just that good at staying in the lines? What condition did the 24 hour stuff leave your lips in? I find those often make mine dry and flaky after I've worn them.

  4. Like this one too! I need to check out that stuff!
    I had some Lancome long wearing forever ago and I LOVED it, they stopped making it of course..maybe I could find a similar shade in the Maybelline..hmm

  5. Megan: The Maybelline 24 Hour lipstick hasn't been too drying for me, but I live in south Texas with heaps of humidity. It might be drying in other climates. I do like the fact that the balm is right there in the tube to reapply if/as needed.

    The one thing I'm learning with these red shades is that red isn't very forgiving. If your lips are uneven, well, you gotta fake it. And you gotta wax your mustache if you plan to wear red. :)

    I used a neutral lip liner (MAC Blanco) for regular lipstick, but I just carefully outlined my lips with the 24 Hour stuff as I applied it.
