How Do You Woo?

Riri Woo came in this week. If you know anything about Rihanna’s line for MAC you know it was a task even ordering it! I bought this red and the other two; “Heaux” and “RiRi Boy”.  The latter two are back ordered until later on this month (No surprise there). I was on a real hunt to find the perfect red lipstick so naturally I bought every one I came across. NARS “Red Lizard” has been my go-to red for the past few years. Now that my hair is short and blue black (Oh yea I cut it *haha*, guess It’s obvious since the last post) I need a strong lip to pull the look off. This lipstick is supposed to be “blue based”, meaning the hue should be a true red, with no orange. I find that depending on the light, it does have just a hint of orange, but it is definitely a vibrant red and it makes your lips “pop” off your face. It’s a “retro-matte” texture, so it is reaaaally matte, and this allows for staying power. It wore well all day with only 1 touch up after lunch.  The hunt is still on. Guess I’m looking for a deeper hue, not burgundy though, like a Snow White Red Apple red…if you can imagine what I mean. Perhaps I need to wait until fall when the richer colours come back around.

I was determined to find a way to wear these “loungy” pants to work! Can you say comfortable?? They look like sweats, but the leather trim though…I mean, how chic?

The shoes…. quite possibly be the ONLY pair I need for the rest of the summer. *Love*

Later, Yan
