Mixitini Lippie of the Day – Warm Red?
|December 16, 2010||Posted by Makeup Cocktail under beauty, cosmetics, Lipstick, Makeup, Uncategorized||
I had some brown lipsticks that I wanted to make over. I decided to add red to see what would happen. Apparently I added more red than brown because in the photos it looks like a warm red. Hardly any brown at all. Which is strange because in the tube it looks more brown than red. And since it looked more brown in the tube I used a brownish red lip pencil that you can see faintly in the photo. GRR! Wrong pencil color!
Check it out on my hand :
Here it is on my lips:
I was hoping for a brown lip color with reddish undertones but that’s not how the Makeuptini cocktail turned out. That’s part of the fun of melting down lipsticks and adding colors. It often comes out a different color than you expect. I like it even though its not a color I would usually wear.
So would you call it a warm red? Is it a brick red? Hmm….where did the brown go? 🙂
