I was on my way to work and was tempted to try on that new Port Red lipstick from MAC’s Naughty Nauticals collection. So I dropped my lunch box and purse on the floor and ran to my bathroom where the beauty of all lipsticks lay in my traincase. I lined my lips with Nightmoth and applied Port Red. I was floored with how beautiful it looks. The subtle gold specks really bring some “umph” to the overall color of Port Red. I am in love with this. And yep, it is a TRUE red. What I love about it is how it isn’t a deep red. Deep reds tend to make me really look like somebody’s 40 year old Momma. And yall know what I’m talkin’ about….hehehe.
So dig the little photo shoot I had in the car. I was careful about it, I promise. I also tried to show pictures in different lightning so you can really get an idea of how Port Red looks. *insert British voice* I was a bit giddy in these pics, chaps but I had a jolly good time. And you’ll have to enlarge for a better view. Photbucket was on the trips today, mannnn.
What do you think?
Yay or nay to Port Red?
…..what’ s your take on darker skinned ladies wearin’ red lippies?
