    I actually love this because when I try to put on red lipstick (or lipstick of any kind) it ends up all over my face and on my teeth. Seriously, it's awful. I have a bunch of gorgeous unused lipsticks, and clearly what i've been needing this whole time is a lip liner! Thank you for the tips!xox, Maya Bethmylifeasmaya.com

    These are great guides! I am so guilty of not using lip liners, what can I say, I am lazy. LOL! I have Ruby Woo but have yet to try Russian Red but I really like how it looks on you.Shireen | Reflection of Sanity

    Interesting! I'm used to using the lip liner first and only sometimes after applying the lipstick if necessary – I like having that base for my lipstick to go on top of, since lip liner wears off less easily. And I hear you about the dance days – I remember we always just went with what was cheapest at the drug store because it inevitably was lost, stolen, smooshed, melted, or smelled funky way too soon and we were constantly replacing it, but that led to really unflattering shades and horrible formulas. I always recommend getting a good lipstick to my students – the eyeshadows can be whatever, as long as their eyes are widened and darkened, but the lips make a difference!SarahSweet Spontaneity

    Great tips, thank you for sharing! 🙂 I tend to be quite loyal to lipsticks! The one I have now is the one I purchased from my makeup artist after she did a trial run for my wedding day makeup – nice and natural, but a hint of colour. I really like it, plan to stick with it for a long time! :)Away From The Blue

    Gorgeous! I wouldn't mind spending the money if I knew I wouldn't lose it. I always stick them in my pockets or purses and then lose them 🙁 -♥- Rachel (For the Birds)

    I haven't bought a red lipstick yet. It is such a hard colour to choose right. I might go to a counter myself though and see!Elleosophy
