|A Shade of Red: One Lipstick and One Hundred Women by Alyson Fox|
Alyson Fox, an illustrator & photographer, has just released the most wonderful photo book entitled, A Shade of Red: One Lipstick and One Hundred Women. As the title suggests, Alyson’s photos captured 100 different women wearing one shade of lipstick, Revlon’s Certainly Red. Not only are the photos beautiful, they showcase the transformative power of lipstick. Applying red lipstick can immediately transform how one feels, acts, and maybe even how others respond to you. Two of my favorite images from the book are posted above. The images truly speak for themselves. You can preview more of the images on Alyson’s website. The book is available for purchase now @ Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
I also decided I should try out the classic lipstick. I must say I was an instant fan! This lipstick performed and wore well without being the least bit drying. I’ve posted images and swatches below, but it is definitely one of the best drugstore lipsticks available:
