Whenever someone has on a red lipstick that suits them, I want to know the name of it and the full journey of how they discovered it. Did they try a million other red lipsticks and finally ended up at that one? Was it a lucky first pick? Did they hate red lips until trying this particular shade? All the pointless nosey questions you can think of- I want to know it all.
If someone asked me my “journey” with Colourpop Arriba! (no one would but I guess blogging = making up hypothetical lipstick journey conversations), it would be that I loved it as soon as I saw Colourpop release it, but tried to hold back. After seeing it on a few people I follow, I obviously caved and bought it. One person in particular that I saw wearing it was @Katy, or LustreLux on Youtube. It made her tan pop. I mentioned this in my Colourpop Haul post, but it is just that right shade of red that is rich and has a hint of maroon. It makes my teeth look white and I couldn’t be happier with it.
Before I applied it, I put Soap & Glory Extreme XXL Plumping Gloss on to work while I did the rest of my face. I dabbed off the excess with a towel, put on some chapstick, and about six minutes or so later I put on the red liquid lipstick.
