I go back to the well, the smelly well, and try out the second shade in my YSL Glossy Stain sampler. Today for Lipstick Week, I take on a bright cool red, Rouge Gouache.
Cool tones generally offer a higher level of contrast against my skin and for Rouge Gouache, the opacity makes it a very intense shade indeed for me. Here it is on my lips.
Here I am, gazing into the zombie hoard descending into the suburbs:
Here is a side by side comparison of the two reds from this week so far. The more neutral Rouge Laque on the left and the much cooler Rouge Gouache on the right. Same thoughts on the wear, comfortable feel, and yes, same putrid smell as I wrote previously.
What's your red comfort zone? Sheer or opaque? Warm, neutral or cool? Glossy or matte?
