But if you're craving a touch of edgy glamour, a rich wine red like Maybelline’s Madison Rad is your ultimate weapon. This shade is the epitome of "don't mess with me, but feel free to buy me a glass of Malbec." Just make sure to apply with a lip liner for ultimate precision and staying power – you want a sharp line, not a messy Merlot mustache.
Pro-tips for lasting liptints
Exfoliating is key: Flaky lips are lipstick's sworn enemy. Gently buff away dead skin with a sugar scrub before applying to ensure a smooth, even canvas.
Lining is life: Lip liner defines your lips and prevents color from bleeding. Choose a shade slightly darker than your lipstick for extra drama.
Blotting is essential: Apply your lipstick, then press a tissue against your lips to remove excess product and set the color. Repeat with a translucent powder for extra staying power.
Remember, gorgeous, the key to rocking any lipstick is confidence! So own your shade, strut your stuff, and let your lips do the talking. Now go forth and paint the town red (or pink, or mauve, or whatever your heart desires)! So go forth, paint the town red (or pink, or mauve, or whatever your heart desires!), and leave a trail of shimmering smiles in your wake.
