My Perfect Red

What I’m about to show you is my absolute favorite red lip color!

But first, my story. Or gripe, or complaint, or whatever you want to call it. Here goes.

A few decades ago, in my young days, most of the reds would change to an unflattering shade on me and I had to mix different lipsticks to get this exact color red. What I mean is, I used a black lipstick from Halloween to darken all my red lipsticks and it was such a pain because it was time consuming to get right and I couldn’t just put the one tube in my pocket and go. I had to layer the not-perfect red and Halloween black and blend it with a lip brush. I liked using lip brushes but I didn’t want to carry a lip brush and two tubes of lipstick in a small pocket and I didn’t wear any makeup other than lipstick at the time so a makeup bag would’ve been useless. And if I wanted something really nice and near perfect in one tube, I had to pay a lot. That wasn’t happening because I didn’t have a job and I wasn’t even old enough to work. Ok, maybe I was old enough to work but I was lazy. Still am, but whatever. All you young ones are so lucky today with your affordably huge selection of lip colors. But now I’m lucky too because I have THIS.

This is Jeffree Star’s Velour Liquid Lipstick in Wifey. PERFECT RED.

It goes on liquidy shiny but it dries matte.

This lipstick was a Christmas gift from my Darling Child. Then shortly after Christmas it wasn’t listed on JS’s website and I was afraid I would never get to buy it again if I used it up. So for my birthday Darling Child bought this set called Family Collection because it has Wifey, and a few other very nice colors. I have a back up now so I can wear this red all the time!
