Birthday Rouge – R is for red

This time a year ago, I was preparing for the arrival of Rouge. My ‘baby’ went live on 29 February last year. This week we’ll celebrate an amazing year.

Happy first birthday, baby bird!

I’m going to do a breakdown the best of the last 12 months. Cunningly divided into topics starting with R, O, U, G, E. Today, being Monday, is R for red.

Red is a classic colour for lips and nails, but the last year saw it venture up into eyes as well. Even I embraced the trend!

Maybelline Forever Strong Pro in Deep Red, Tip Top Nail Chic in Cherries in the Snow, and Chanel Le Vernis in April.

Clarins Rouge Prodige in Red Prodige, Revlon Lip Butter in Cherry Tart and Maybelline Super Stay 10Hr Stain Gloss in Refreshing Red.

Inglot made damn sure that we embraced the ‘red eye’ trend with their Matte Eyeshadow in 366 and Gel Eyeliner in Red.

And there was a (thankfully) fleeting red face  cheek moment, but it didn’t last. I did love essence’s Vampire’s Love Blush Gelee, however.
