Paula Dorf Lip Color Cream in Legend | My Holiday Red Lip

Now that the holidays are in full swing and I have a few parties coming up, I will be rocking the classic and beloved red lip. I love the timeless look it gives, and just makes me feel super feminine. I am the type of person that has a hard time finding lip colors that suit me, so red is my go to. I have a handful of red lipsticks in my collection, however I tend to have some issues with them. Either they are way too pigmented and it is just too much for my skin tone, or the lipsticks are super drying. Normally I have to sheer out the lipstick, and mix it with a tad bit of balm or gloss to keep it from being so dry. That can be a pain. Thankfully I now have a new lipstick in my collection that combines just the right pigmentation, with just the right formula.

The Paula Dorf Lip Color Cream in Legend is a classic red lipstick. Think Marilyn Monroe red lip. It has a very good pigmentation, but isn't screaming red. It is far from being sheer, but you can put on 1 coat and be good to go. If you want something a bit more bolder, then a 2nd coat would do the trick. It has a nice formulation, not too dry and not too glossy. It doesn't settle into fine lines and doesn't feather. Amazing right? It stays on my lips for a good 6 hours, and even longer if I prime my lips. I simply cover my lips with my foundation, and then apply. Plus not only is the color of the lipstick gorgeous, but so is the packaging. I have to say that the tube design is probably one of my top 5 favorites. Simply beautiful. 

To apply, I found it best to use a brush as I do with all of my red lipsticks. If you want a super sharp, clean lip line, then you can also apply concealer around the outside of your lips after applying your lipstick. One thing to remember is a red lip is a statement. Keep your eye makeup simple, a classic cat eye using black eye liner is always gorgeous. Also subtle brown shades of eye shadow are stunning as well.
