Reader Request: An Update!

Last Friday I posted a Reader Request from Sarah asking for help finding the perfect red lipstick!  I gave her a few suggestions, and today she emailed back her verdict!

Hi Jocelyn!

I went to the MAC store this weekend – SUCCESS! I tried on a ton of shades (OK, maybe 5) and settled on your recommendation, Spice It Up! I love it, and have gotten several compliments on it already. It’s the perfect color and feels great!

I also bought a liner (Cremestick Liner, Red Enriched) — that boosts the red, and hopefully makes it last longer.
I know MAC has been around forever, I just wish I discovered it sooner – I could have saved a LOT of money!

Thanks for your help!

Sarah

My favorite celebrity from the Oscars was by far Katherine Heigl, I loved the old Hollywood glamour look. I think her hair and makeup were absolutely flawless and her dress was beautiful.
