Substitute for Red Lipstick

July 1, 2000

While I love glamorous red lipstick looks on other people, no matter what shade I try, I somehow end up feeling like a porn star. As red is one of this season’s looks, this presents somewhat of a problem. So, I begged the experts for an appropriate substitute. M.A.C’s Gordon Espinet advises to go silvery-lavender with its Rockin’ Rudi lipstick. Prescriptives has come up with the ultimate crimson compromise: Starry, a lipstick with a glimmery pink shade on one side and an opalescent glaze on the other. It transforms any lip colour into a softer, more shimmery shade. Go to David Jones or Mecca Cosmetica in any capital city for these MUST HAVES!!!
