As a beauty blogger, I think I will always be searching for the perfect red lipstick. It's one of those famous categories - just like the "perfect nude" the "perfect pink" the "my lips but better lipstick"... etc. I always found those a bit silly because really, the perfect nude for someone can make another look dead. It's all relative! But at the same time, I do feel like this lipstick could be great shade on everyone, so I thought it was worthwhile to review it!
Estée Lauder's Pure Color lipstick in Wild Fire came out a while back with the Spring 2011 collection. When I saw swatches of it online, I knew this could be "it".

The surprising thing about this lipstick is that it lasts quite long on my lips. I wore it for 4 hours (drinking coffee, water, eating a muffin at my desk) with only a bit of wear by lunchtime. This is excellent for me! Plus, it wore off evenly, bypassing the ugly lip ring stain. And for a red, I was very comfortable wearing it to work! It's a step in the right direction for this bright-lips shy blogger!
Do you have a favorite red? If so, what is it? I've been very curious about NARS Heatwave myself - it looks fabulous on so many women - I really want to give it a go sometime!
