Color Me Candy Apple Red

Filed under: Uncategorized — sashyjane @ 4:39 pm

About a year and a half ago, I began a quest for Candy Apple Red lipstick.  Thus far, my search has been fruitless (pardon the corny pun.) I’ve tried tube after tube only to be disappointed by the too pink, too purple, too orange, too light, not shiny results.  I want that true red, super shiny, lacquered finish kind of lipstick you see in old movies. However, in my internet search, I can’t even find an example of the classic Hollywood look I’m going for!  These two are semi-close:



So, until I find my perfect shade of Candy Apple Red lipstick, I’ve taken comfort in these pictures that are so sweet, they’ll keep your dentist in business.

  1. The red cabinet! I love the red cabinet! I want the courage to decorate with a red cabinet. Where do I buy that?

  2. Stumbled upon your blog while doing a google image search for typewriters (?). I spent a good 9 months on the same search for the perfect red lipstick, and came pretty close with the following: Clinique’s “Angel Red” lipstick with their “Candy Apple” (I believe that’s the name– “apple” is certainly in it somewhere) slathered on top. Hope this helps.
