FOTD : Neutral eyes, Matte Red Lips

 

Revlon Matte Lipstick Really Red is one of my favorite reds! I have quite a few reds  but none of them look as richly ‘red’ and true as this one! I generally pick cool toned reds and I ended up with this warm red as it was a free gift with some other purchases. I have previously worn this shade in my Festive makeup look HERE.

In this look, I’ve paired this stunning red with neutral eyes and cheeks using the Clinique palette I received with my December Vellvette box. I’m not entirely happy with the texture of the powders in this palette especially the blush which is quite powdery and looks ashy on my skin. I’ll be swatching and reviewing this palette in full detail soon.
