Nude Lip Vs Red Lip

Are you into the nude lip - Team Madonna? Or do you prefer a bold red lip - Team Anjolie?

Nude Lip Vs Red Lip

I was chatting with Chris Brown at Bernard's Salon and Spa in Cherry Hill - post Golden Globes - and he says the red lip was the big beauty story of the red carpet.  "I just loved it," Brown told me. "It was simple, classic and elegant but it had amazing pop. The red lip won out."

Bold red lips are chic, sultry and strong and Angelina Jolie truly rocked hers.

But I must admit, I really like  the nude lip. It was on puckers in full force, too.  This classic look is easy to wear during the day and with our new found love for lipstick, it's creamily seductive. I think Madonna did it best.

What do you think, Chris?

"The natural lip is also strong because it's a classic," Brown said. "The eyes weren't all smoked out. It was all about the lip."

Thank god a girl has options.

About this blog

I’m a Libra so I’m all about pretty things. We of the scales sign know what we like, and our standards are high.

So I can’t help but love fashion – one day I will get that Diane von Furstenberg wrap and those Christian Louboutin shoes.

And fragrances? My favorite right now is Chanel Mademoiselle. As for makeup, can we say MAC?

So let’s thank the Greek goddess of beauty, Aphrodite, that a true fashionista can find everything she needs right here in Philly.

I’ve covered fashion here for six years, and I have traveled to New York, Los Angeles and Paris to write about local and national designers. Let me tell you, there is no place where people wear midnight Eagles green or Phillies red with such wild abandon as they do on the west side of the Ben Franklin Bridge.

Sound familiar? This blog is for you.
