Russian Red

You know when you get ready for the day, and you put on your clothes...but something is missing? You choose what you want to wear, and in your head it looks fabulous, but then you put it on... not as fabulous as you thought! 
Sometimes you just want to wear black, but don't want to give off a funeral vibe, and sometimes you want to wear a floral print but keep a little sex appeal. 
All of the instances I just mentioned can be solved with one thing...A classic red lip.
Sharai and I haven't featured anything to do with cosmetics so far on the blog, but we thought with the amount of times we rock a red lip, its definitely a staple piece of our or not. I can't even count the amount of times I have felt meh about an outfit and as soon as I throw on my red lipstick, VIOLA!  There is something about red lips makes you feel classy, sexy and beautiful all at once. 
Sharai and I wear a lot of red lipstick! We love, love, love it. So much so, that we decided to do today's feature on one of our favorites. MAC Russian Red is a lipstick both Sharai and I have been using for a very long time. It's the perfect bold red color and has a matte finish we adore. 

Beauty to me, is about being comfortable in your own skin. That, or a kick ass red lipstick.
