Hi! I recently bought Lime Crime’s Glamour101 lipstick on impulse during  the Valentine’s sale. The thing is, I don’t know what to expect when it  arrives. Do you have any idea what the colour/texture is like and what  to wear on the rest of the face with it? Thank you! p.s. love your blog,  I have been following since you had about 600 followers ;)

Lime Crime’s Glamour 101 is a deep, luscious carmine red (think of the texture of MAC’s Amplified lipsticks) that looks good worn in a classic pin-up style, with soft neutral beige on the eye and strong black kitten liner along the upper lash line.
Of course, the pin-up look is not the only way you can wear a strong red. It looks good with browns, and even purple (below) on the lid. An extra tip is that it’s really quite “on point” to wear a matching red polish on the nails as well.

For evening, you can go for all-out glamor with a smoky eye (below). There is no rule saying you can’t wear a strong red with a strong eye. As long as you keep most of the color within the eye socket, it should look quite good.
