Happy Monday! I hope your afternoon/evening/morning (?) has been treating you kindly. 🙂
Today starts week two of my 22 Days of Red Lipstick series and I’ve got a possible “gateway” red for those who are intimidated by red lips.
Too Faced La Creme Color Drenched Lip Cream in Stiletto Red might sound scary, but it’s actually kinda tame. For a red.
Stiletto Red is a classic red shade but on the more sheer side. If you do a really light coat of it, it almost looks like a red stain on the lips. It’s glossy, moisturizing and really comfortable to wear. I think this makes a good “starter red” because it’s not incredibly saturated and in your face. You can start off lighter like a stain and build it up to be a bit brighter and more intense if you are so inclined.
What do you think about this shade, is it something you would wear?

Cult Nails™ Warehouse Overstock Clearance Event!
Cult Nails™ has had tremendous support over the past 3 years, and I am
thankful and truly humbled by this day after day. When I conceived the line, my
dream was to eventually offer several core colors while introducing and evolving
approach seasonally. Much like fashion designers create lines specific to
seasons and trends, my objective was to bring that idea to this industry. The
concept was simple, be a niche brand of polish that brings a little something
different while maintaining an appeal to many. In 2014 we will introduce new
shades in smaller sized collections with the idea that many of the colors will be
limited edition runs that, once sold out, are unlikely to remain as core colors.
The Laura Mercier 2013 Holiday Colour Story White Magic Collection features some really gorgeous things you might want to buy for a friend – then keep yourself!
The collection includes the following:
- Limited edition Illuminating Eye Colour (Pearl Fantasy, Crystal Fantasy and Opal Fantasy)
- Limited edition Tightline Cake Liner (Gunmetal Smoke)
- Limited edition Caviar Eye Stick Colour (Twilight and Sterling)
- Limited edition Brilliant Glace (Pink Prism, Rose Prism and Nude Prism)
- Limited edition Creme Smooth Lip Colour (Flamingo, Mocha Myth)
- Re-promote Creme Smooth Lip Colour (Plumberry)
- Limited edition nail lacquer (Butterfly Wings and Angel Wings)
- Re-promote and perm Second Skin Cheek Colour (Orange Blossom)
- Re-promote and perm Mineral Illuminating Powder (Candlelight)
- Re-promote and perm Faux Lash Mascara (Black).
Butterfly Wings is a somewhat complex almost duochrome shimmery shade. It’s a light coppery pink with pink and gold shimmer. It kind of looks like a pink/copper/beige/gold all in one. It’s a very soft color but I actually really love it. The formula is thin and sheer so three coats will be required most likely.
Twilight is a gorgeous shimmery plum/grey/taupe shade. Super creamy smooth and pretty.
Opal Fantasy is an iridescent pink shimmer. It’s pretty and soft, but not incredibly pigmented.
Overall: I really liked all three of these things here. Butterfly Wings isn’t a color I would normally like because it’s so light and feminine, but something about the pink/gold is captivating me. Twilight is AWESOME, I am completely in love with the color and texture of it. It makes for a great smoky eye color and sets over a primer without creasing on me all day. Opal Fantasy is really pretty (especially just to look at in the pan) but it’s a very soft shade.
