The search for the perfect red: NYX

From the soft matte lip cream line, I’m looking at Amsterdam and Monte Carlo, and from the lip suede line I’m checking out Cherry Skies and Kitten ย Heels.

The search for the perfect red

Blog, The Bella Edit

Ciao!

For the next few weeks on The Bella Edit, I’ll be documenting my search for the perfect red lipstick. I’ll be looking at brands from the drugstore as well as high end brands to find the red I think is truly perfect for me. I’ll be weighing the candidates on the merits of cost, packaging, scent, ease of application, shade, formula, pigment, wear time, and whether the item is limited edition. I hope you enjoy it!
