How to Get a Perfect Pout - Lips with Lip Gloss

Whether you are kissing someone on Valentine’s Day or not, it is time to get your chapped lips moist and kissable looking.

Dior Rouge lipstick in cherry red is a classic. It is a bold red that will look impeccable on all smoochers. Just line your lip with a similar or slightly darker red pencil and fill in with this vibrant color. You will be sure to turn heads and entice a smooch.

Perhaps your man hates lipstick and cant stand bold colors, well then surprise him with juicy kissable pout with Sugar Lip Treatment by Fresh. I love this stuff! It is so yummy and it makes my lips soft and smooth. It is so nice, it makes me want to kiss myself. Different flavors give different small tints that give your lips a natural glow.

If you prefer gloss to lipstick, then you will love Bobbi Brown’s Pink Raspberry Rich Color Gloss. You will love the texture and its long lasting formula for a great looking pout all day long. I love the less intimating pink lip for those that are scared to go red.

For a luxurious red, try any of Guerlain’s fall color collection. All four color options are a shade of red and are absolutely flawless. I love how the compact opens up to a mirror to help you check and correct your lips whenever needed. This way you don’t need to use the silverware as a means to check up on yourself.

MAC’s “Good to be Bad” Sheen Supreme Lipstick is sexy. It is a bit more of a berry color, which looks great on pale or darker skin. If you are like me, and your skin is neither pale nor dark, then this shade is not as flattering. This color line has a bit of glass shine in its composition, which will make your lips appear glassy as opposed to matte.
