If you are looking for a red lipstick to light up your whole face, try the relatively new Stila Acai Crush Lip and Cheek Stain. With any stain, of course, you will want to practice, but especially so with the Stila Crush line – I love them, but the brush can be a bit unwieldy if you don’t take the time to get the layering down, and once it dries it stays in place no matter what (which is a good thing most of the time, bad if you goof), so precise application is important. Once you get the hang of application, you can do one thin layer for a very wearable ruby red, or two layers for a beautiful bright red. This is two layers pictured below – bold yet wearable.
