Finding the Perfect Red Lipstick, As Told Through GIFs

by Casey Cline


After a years-long love affair with Dr. Pepper LipSmacker, you’ve decided to branch out…image


…and try red lipstick.image


But you’re not sure where to start.image


You head to Sephora, and are immediately overwhelmed by all the choices.image


So you do a quick breathing exercise to remind yourself that you can do this. image


There are some colors you can’t pronounce, like Rouge Cannage.image


And a lot that you can: Red, Truly Red, Classic Red, Cherry.image


You try on something corally and take a look in the tiny mirror.image












Nope. Maybe this mauve number will do.image


Okay. What about pinkish red?image



Something blue-toned?image


What about this blood-orange color? ALSO NO?!image

This is too much. You’re just not a red lip kinda girl. Back to Dr. P.image


Then, like a beacon in the night, a salesperson approaches, and makes a recommendation.image


You try it on and check your reflection.image


Well, well, well. What do you know. It actually works with your skin tone. You look good. image


Reeeaaal good.image


You saunter up to the counter.image

And get rung up. It costs how much now?!image


*Faints*image












But you want this lipstick, you need it, so you (wo)man up and shell out the cash.image


You tell yourself it’s okay, that it’s worth it.image

Because you’re a goddess now. A ruby-mouthed goddess.image


You rock the red, and you know it.image
