Super Juicy Pin-Up Worthy Just-Bitten Red Lips

I love red lipsticks, and boy am I picky with them. I simply won’t stand for dry lipsticks, color that smears too easily, or anything that wears off in half an hour. And in my great search for red lipsticks I came across a combo SO SEXY, I just had to share.

First of all, I use DuWop Reverse Lip Liner ($19) to line the outside of my lips. This keeps everything inside the lines, so to speak. You don’t need a lip primer with this, since it’s such a great quality lipstick, but you can throw some powder on your lips before applying your lipstick just to make things neat and tidy.

I usually hate Benefit products, but they sell the best red lipstick on the market. Use Benefit Full-Finish Lipstick in ‘Flirt Alert’ ($18) and apply two coats. The tip of the lipstick is rounded, so it’s hardly even possible to apply directly to your lips without making a mess. Just pick up a lip brush and use the brush to apply it- it’s a much simpler way to deal with it. If you can’t get ‘Flirt Alert’, Urban Decay sells a similar shade called ‘Revolution’ ($22). But I far and beyond prefer my Benefit lipstick.

Once you’ve got your lipstick on, it’s time to apply the gloss! You absolutely MUST pick up Urban Decay XXX Shine Gloss in ‘Guys Love Betsy’. It’s a shade that was specifically created for a Besty Johnson runway show. Apply liberally!

The combo is stunning. The red lipstick (a candy apple red) is eye-catching a sweet, and doubly so with the sheer red gloss overtop. Your lips end up looking edible! Best of all, the Benefit lipstick stays on for hours and hours of wear, even through eating and drinking. The XXX Shine Gloss will give you fresh, minty breath and make you feel fresh all night long. Such a stunning look!!!!
