It’s a jungle out there…
SRLSY, shout-out to the jungle for having The. Bedst. Plants. Nogensinde.
I found this quite plant at a location called Haiku gardens on Oahu last week, as well as it’s been haunting my dreams ever since!
I believe it may be a flower…? Wow, exactly how striking is that red? It’s so intense, as well as the finish! I don’t even understand where to start… Matte, as well as I like the method it contrasts with the eco-friendly leaves behind it. I mean, mom Nature? *Mwah!* finest painter ever.
Anyway, I was wanting to wear the precise exact same color on my lips, as well as somebody on Instagram discussed that the red in this picture appeared like MAC Relentlessly Red ($17 as well as offered in the long-term line), so when I was getting prepared today (by the way, this is most likely the most makeup I’ve used in two weeks), I dug with my MAC drawer…
And I discovered it! Yay! It’s a ideal match.

I’m using a mish-mash of things today, not gonna lie (I just kept stacking stuff on as well as really hoped for the best!). I’m using Chanel Mirage illusion D’Ombre cream Shadow, MAC Hushed Tone blush as well as metropolitan Decay diamond canine Eyeshadow on my lids; MAC Relentlessly Red Lipstick on my cheeks; Milk makeup Lit Highlighter on my upper cheekbones; as well as MAC Matchmaster Concealer
One of the vintage Matte Lipsticks in the MAC long-term line, Relentlessly Red is a bright coral-red with a fuchsia spirit that sets it aside from numerous other MAC reds, like woman Danger, which is much more orange, as well as MAC Ruby Woo, which is cooler- as well as bluer-toned.
The MAC vintage Matte Lipsticks vary in terms of exactly how dry the formula feels. Some are smoother, somewhat much more “moisturizing” (air quotes, since none of them are precisely moisturizing) as well as consequently simpler to wear than others.
Relentlessly Red is one of the drier ones (but that’s not to state that it’s very dry) as well as benefits from a bit babying as well as prep work if you have any type of flake action on your lips. in that case, exfoliate first; then prep your pout with a layer of lip balm, as well as I utilized metropolitan Decay Lip like today. then blot as well as apply Relentlessly Red.
Because I’ve been *mucho lazy* lately, I had been applying lipstick directly from the bullet, however I just recently started utilizing a lip clean to apply lipstick, typically a layer or two, as well as then I pat whatever down with my finger.
It’s much more work than going directly from the tube, however I like the look. It appears like my lipstick is merging with my lips, instead of sitting on top of them.
It’s all part of that continuous phase I’m in where I want my makeup to look like I’m not trying as well difficult (even when I am), as well as that’s the impact I get with a lip brush.
Take me back to the jungle
By the way, I’m likewise using Relentlessly Red as a cream shadow on my cheeks here! It works excellent as a blush, so it’s type of a two-for-one. I just packed a finger with a bit of it as well as dabbed that directly on top of my deal with makeup.
If you’re going to do this, however, I would apply it as a lipstick first, then as a blush, since that method it’s simpler (I think) to gauge exactly how much blush to apply, particularly with something dynamic like a red, which is simple to overdo it with.
I understand that reds normally autumn into the autumn makeup category…but who cares about that? Lol! They look excellent all year round, as well as particularly in summer, when you can rock ’em with bronze or copper metallic shadows.
Reds. have you been into any type of specific red products lately?
