Draped Blouse, Leopard Clutch and Pure Red Lips

Shirt: H&M, Jeans: GAP, Booties: Old Navy (similar), Clutch: GAP (similar), Necklace: LOFT

I was so thrilled when I heard that L’Oreal was coming out with a matte red lipstick inspired by Blake Lively – I couldn’t wait to try it. So imagine my excitement when I received this package in the mail containing L’Oreal Paris Collection Exclusive Pure Reds!

As with their Nudes range, this Collection Exclusive features “L’Oreal Spokesmodel”-inspired lipsticks and polishes. The Pure Reds range features “matte reds sculpted by semi-tones to offer every woman the perfect shade to enhance her beauty.”

I’m wearing Blake’s Pure Red Lipstick and Polish in my pictures. The color is gorgeous and the formula is everything I look for in a red lipstick – matte, non-drying and super-long lasting… it does NOT budge!

As a LOVER of matte red lipsticks, I am obsessed with this range. I feel SO lucky to have received all the different shades to try – I’m going to have the perfect lip to match any holiday outfit I wear!

The nailpolishes come in such pretty shades – I think Blake and Laetitia’s berry toned polishes look gorgeous in the winter, while Doutzen’s coral color will be pretty for a summer pedicure.

    You know, you are the best at reminding me how much I love the classics. A white blouse + jeans just never goes out of style and your red lip is the perfect classic accent to this look! The Laeticia color looks like the best option for me so I will need to check it out in stores! Great reviews as always!Gina – On the Daily Express
