“Beauty, to me, is about being comfortable in your own skin.
That, or a kick-ass red lipstick.”
― Gwyneth Paltrow
Valentine's Day is almost here*! I just have to ask: Have you found THE perfect red yet? Hitched or not, this Hallmark holiday justifies another trip to the makeup counters, and I am hard-pressed to think of anyone who doesn't find that exciting. (ღ˘⌣˘ღ)
Today I'd like to show you the Color Riche Collection Star Matte Reds by L'Oreal Paris and tell you what I think about each shade.

Pure Amaranthe • Pure Brick • Pure Fire • Pure Garnet
Pure Rouge • Pure Ruby • Pure Scarleto • Pure Vermeil
Like the Collection Star Nudes that came before it, Matte Reds' shades were chosen by L'Oreal's beautiful ambassadors who lent their autographs on the classy black tubes that house each lipstick. These eight shades are wearable as everyday reds yet can look sophisticated enough for dressier and more formal occasions.
Here's a closer look on each one.

|Pure Ruby picked by Chom|
|Pure Scarleto picked by Blake Lively|
|Pure Vermeil picked by Fan Bing Bing|
Is it weird that I feel weird looking at myself with my old hair color?

Did you know that I used to be scared of red lipsticks? I tended to stick to pinks and corals as I didn't think reds would suit me, but now I own more than ten in my train case! I've since found out that it's so easy to pull them off so I recommend that you experiment! With the range of colors readily available to us, it's impossible to find the right red for you. Good luck! ♥
*I've always been a sucker for this holiday so please bear with me and try not to roll your eyes too hard. Heh.
