Love Letter Series: Red-Hot Lip Service

Dear Maybelline New York Matte Lipstick in Siren in Scarlet,

You really took me by surprise. I've been with a lot of lipsticks. I mean, a lot. Especially reds. And you came out of nowhere, like a bat out of hell, all affordable and long-lasting. Your shade is so versatile and you never make my lips feel dry. That's really important to me. I'm happy we've been spending so much time together lately...hope you agree.

xo,
Deenie

As you may know, lipstick is a pretty big deal to me. I depend on it. MNY's ColorSensational Creamy Matte Lipstick in Siren in Scarlet is bright, but not orange, with a hint of brick, but more cool than warm. 

What's the deal with matte? I still love a high-gloss shine, but there's something about a matte finish that screams fresh femininity to me. Never flaky, highly pigmented, and long lasting, MNY proves that you don't need to spend $30 on a good red.

From February 1–14, I'll be posting love letters to the things I've been obsessing over lately. From sweets to slip-ons, these are the showstoppers that are picking up my pulse this winter.
