It’s Thursday, which means we’re only one day away from the weekend! Hallelujah! Now, I don’t know about you but I like to browse through old pictures every now and then and do a bit of reminiscing the good old times. Haha. So I thought why not go back a few years and share with you my first ever red lipstick. This might even be my first lipstick ever. I’m not entirely sure but it’s definitely one of my first lipsticks. I bought this little beauty in 2009 at the young age of 14. Why do I still remember that? Well, it was a very special moment for me.
I had bought this bright red dress for Christmas and I really wanted a red lipstick to go with it and when I wore my dress with my red lipstick that Christmas day I felt so grown up. Obviously I totally wasn’t and I can’t believe how young I actually was but back then I just felt so mature and grown up.
So this is it. My first ever red lipstick.
Back then I probably only owned Maybelline makeup. I still love that brand today and that’s probably because I still remember my first mascara ever to be a Maybelline one. And they just have amazing products. Oh and when I was 14, so 5 years ago, most of the beauty bloggers on YouTube just started out and if I’m being honest I barely ever spend any time on a computer. So I barely knew about all the high end makeup and if I’m being honest here I definitely wouldn’t have needed something like a Chanel lipstick at that age anyway.
So the shade I bought is 530 in Fatal Red. I quite like the name. It sounds so fierce. As you will be able to tell form the swatch it’s quite a bold and loud red but I thought it would go perfectly well with my dress.
And now here’s a picture of 14 year old, braces wearing 2009 and me. When I look at it now I haven’t even changed that much. My hair got quite longer and thank God the braces are gone. This definitely isn’t one of my best outfits but back then I thought I’d looked awesome, so that’s what matters I guess. I actually don’t even look like 14. More like 16.
I hope you enjoyed this little bag to the past post! What was you first ever red lipstick?
Thanks so much for reading!
