stila beso

Longtime readers know that I love the physical and psychological rush that comes with wearing bright lipstick: It brightens up your face and, at least in my case, it makes me feel good (and more put-together than I generally actually am).

I’m far more of a lipgloss than a lipstick girl, though–probably because I don’t have the patience to actually apply it the right way—so I was excited to discover Stila’s liquid lipstick, which goes on like a gloss but has the matte-ness of a lipstick. It helps that the color Beso is the perfect shade of red–that classic crimson that you think of when you hear the words “red lipstick.” I love it and highly recommend. (Another red I love is Revlon’s “Ravish Me Red,” which is decidedly more budget-friendly, too.)

Do you guy wear red–or other brightly colored–lipstick? Do you agree that it provides a little pick-me-up?

P.S. My favorite hot-pink lipstick.

    I’m with you on bright lipstick. I love how peppy it makes me feel, and I love the response I get from others. I’m more prone to smiling with a bright lip.

    I’ve never had the confidence to rock a bright lip, I’m always convinced I have it on my teeth! That said, I love the lipstick look and more power to gals that can pull it off! Maybe a liquid lipstick would be more entry-level for a lipstick novice like myself 😉
