A Surprisingly Pretty Six Dollar Lipstick

In my quest for the perfect retro-red lipstick, I followed up on a recommendation from Kara, CoverGirl Lip Perfection in Hot 305. Amazing how the same shade can look orangey-red on one person, and pink-red on me. It may not have been what I was looking for, but I like it. Just a little bit edgier than the usual red when worn with an LBD or crisp white button down. Maybe this makes it a universally flattering shade? Worth a try for only six dollars!
