Hot Rod Red

Recently I was contacted by Refinery29 on behalf of Maybelline New York to take their new Color Elixir lipstick for a spin this week. I love a lip color that packs a punch and they aren't kidding when they call it a "color elixir." Its incredibly vibrant, ultra shiny and has some serious lasting power. The formula is definitely comparable to a high end department store brand. My favorite color in the line is Signature Scarlet, a gorgeous hot-rod-red bombshell hue. I especially liked that it didn't "turn pink" on my face which can be a problem with reds, so I'd bet its a great option for anyone else having trouble finding a true red that works for their complexion.
I felt like a 50's pin-up girl swiping on bright red lipstick in the rear view mirror of a classic car last Saturday. Although, I should mention that the pretty pea-green car I'm using as a vanity was actually a boxy little ride from Germany. Not quite as muscle-y as the Chevelle in the first shot, but still a favorite.
