- Name: Quynh
- Age: 29
- Red of Choice: My first and last purchase was YSL Rogue Pur Couture Lipstick in #1 Le Rouge. If I want a bit of sparkle, I’ll do L’Oreal Colour Riche Lipstick in 297.
- First red memory: My mother had an orange-based red Estée Lauder lipstick that I would play with when no one was looking.
- Tip for finding the perfect red: DON’T LISTEN TO ANYONE! Those so-called “universal shades” like MAC’s Ruby Woo might not work for you and that’s ok.
Use a lip primer or cover your lips with foundation/powder before testing your colour. It helps the colour stay true.
