Perfectly Bright Lips

Ever since red/bright lips hit the runway, I have been searching for the perfect red lipstick. This has been harder than I orginially thought b/c bright red lipstick tends to look weird on me. I can wear brick red, but bright true red, is too harsh. However, my search as finally ended.

When I was at Old Orchard Mall this weekend for some last minute xmas shopping, I stopped in Sephora to get some supplies for smoky purple eyes (seen on Rachel Bilson in InStyle) and I finally discover it... Smashbox Lip Stain in Infinity. It is the perfect bright red/berry, has the light, fresh look I have seen on the runway and it has real staying power. I usually put lipstick/lipgloss on in the morning, but after my morning coffee it is gone (and I'm too lazy to keep reapplying). The Smashbox Lip Stain has lasted through my morning coffee and lunch. I HIGHLY recommend this stain for everyday or for the perfect holiday party look.
