Au Naturale Eye Essentials Kit

the classics

This blogger is on the hunt again for the perfect red lipstick. The last one I really, truly loved was called Midnight and it was by Chanel. That was about 13 years ago! I love wearing that favorite little black dress with red lipstick for the holidays. I have the dress, which I found on Overstock recently:

Here are some really fabulous reds:

bareMinerals Red Delicious 100% Natural Lipcolor

DuWop Private Red

Korres Guava Lipstick in #55 Red

Josie Maran Devious

Anyway, these are all so pretty, but I have decided to order a new lippie from one of my most favorite mineral makeup companies. It's from the Ithaca area's Silk Naturals and it is called Hot Blooded.

It sounds like a brilliant red--something anyone can wear--and it is $4.50! It says there's cool red, warm red, and other multifaceted shades so that it is truly wearable for those with a hard time finding red lip colors. Did I mention how wonderful the makeup from Silk Naturals is? Here is a review of the other lippies I've tried from them. Click to read.

What else goes with that little black dress and a red lip? Pearls, of course! Here are some favorite pearls from Etsy:
