The Red Lipstick That Looks Good on Everyone


I completely missed this orangey-red lipstick when it launched in spring, then discovered while getting my makeup done at a Bobbi Brown event. In the tube, Lady Ruba (what’s not to love?) it looks like a warm, retro-red, but goes on lips even warmer. Like a really bright tomato or poppy red. What’s so unique, aside from being a shade that you can’t quite pin down, is that it’s just moisturizing enough to be wearable but not so much that it quickly wears off. My beloved MAC Ruby Woo is so dry, it’s intimidating if I’m not totally ready to commit all day. I wore Lady Ruba out with the girls last weekend and everyone—from a blue-eyed-blonde glamazon to a porcelain brunette —looked absolutely smashing in it. Ms. Lady Ruba is limited-edition so you best snap her up before it’s too late!
