Okay, I’m going to come out there and say it…

I’ve found the perfect red. I know, I know, this is a really bold statement to make but I feel confident in it (and if I ever tell you I’ve found something better, just remind me of this post). I took a new red for a test drive, NARS Mysterious Red, (one of those amaze matte lip pencils) and I have never ever in my life been stopped or complimented so many times (even though I like to think that my entire face is really stop-you-in-your-tracks-beautiful, I’m pretty sure it was just my lipstick).

Now listen, I own a LOT of red lipstick. I have shades for summer, for winter, for spring, for fall, for night, for day (I’m bound to be on an episode of Hoarders one of these days). But I really think this is the one. It’s timeless, it’s rich, it’s bold.

I wore it to a beauty event, and when other beauty people are complimenting your lip color, you really know you’ve hit the lipstick jackpot.

I know this is a debate for the ages, so go ahead, tell me your perfect red!
