Despite my intention to shy away from deep and bold colors, I always seem to end up wearing them on my face. I've experimented and tried pinks, nudes and pastels and I just end up going back to my trusty red lippies. I've recently admitted to myself that I look my best in red and fuchsia (my fresh take on red). You see as years pass by, you'll get over the experimenting phase and finally stick to a signature. And I cannot think of a more fitting shade than red for me, as friends and family would agree. I believe in the color's embodiment of sophistication, strength and passion.

And what perfect timing! Guerlain has just launched its latest collection for Fall 2012. I'm glad to hear that mostly, it's still fierce reds for this season (and some grown-up pinks). 


Guerlain’s fall collection consists of two juxtaposing collection, celebrating a woman’s  femininity and sensuality. Femme Fatale boasts of sophisticated red shades that reminds me of the 1920's glam while Femme D’Amour showcases a softer more romantic feel for that subdued beauty. Take your pick, angelic and fresh or sultry and sensual?
