Ahhhh February! The month of love, Valentines day, my birthday and most importantly all things red…
Personally I love February and its little bit of cheeky romance but whether you are in a relationship or single and working it (it matters not) there has never been a more perfect time to take advantage of that January pay day and purchase yourself a fabulous new lipstick.
As a beauty fanatic I would of course endorse such frivolous activity, but somehow as a woman I have always felt that nothing can beat that new beauty buy feeling.
Lets face it you’ve spent the last month miserable because – post Christmas blues – and you’ve become part of the 10 pound crew (i.e. you literally had a tenner to your name and were 10 lbs heavier post festivities). So what better time of year is there to have a little pamper and treat yourself to a new shade?
Regardless of whether you are in the honeymoon period, long term married or simply down in the dumps because you’re single, sometimes a hot new pout in February is just what you need.
I personally love experimenting with new shades and often find that a good bold red will:
a) make my teeth look whiter
b) lift my complexion so it looks are glowing and healthy, and
c) make even the most pants and scruffy of outfits look 10x hotter.
And every girl knows that the perfect shade of red goes a long way. Taylor Swift didn’t catch Calvin without that red lip classic thing going on. Gwen Stefani certainly wouldn’t be Gwen Stefani without that signature scarlet, and there’s a reason Parisian women carry a Chanel rouge around in their armoury like a mobster does a handgun.
Whatever your weapon of choice may be, to save you the heartache of hunting around I’ve put together my 21 favourite shades for February 14th.
There is literally a brand, shade and price point for everyone, with any complexion and on any budget – so no excuses ladies….
Which one is your favourite?
Personally I am a bit of a Charlotte Tilbury addict at the moment…
