Target Red Collection by L’Oreal

I honestly can’t wear what the makeup world calls “thee perfect shade” of red lipstick. No way, no how. Can’t be done unless you want me to look like one of those killer clowns from that really bad yet good 80’s flick, Attack of the Killer Clowns. God, that must be where my fear of clowns comes from, that movie was simply terrifying. Does anyone remember it? They’d kill people and proceed to mummify them in cotton candy…..wow, I heart the 80’s!

For many reasons, women far and wide want the perfect shade of red lipstick. If you’re looking for that true red holy grail shade you might find it in the new L’Oreal Target Red Colour Collection that’s being sold exclusively at Target. The collection also features L’Oreal Infallible Lip in the shade Target Red and L’Oreal Target Red Pro Manicure.

If red is your game, check out the Target Red Collection by L’Oreal at your local Target.

Can you wear true reds?

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    Killer Clowns from Outer Space!!! That was one of my favorite movies, “Back in the Day”
    That has nothing to do with red lipstick but I got so excited that you know about that movie too!!

    Do you avoid reds completely or do you like them if they are sheer?

    • the Muse

      LOL Lorraine that movie SCARRED me for LIFE! 😀 I like them warmer. Brick reds, maroons, etc…but can’t do bright true reds like this eep way clown-y!

    I’m friends with a guy that helped design the creature effects for that Killer clown movie. ha! They showed it for fun at our local theater last summer one night, and I’d forgotten how awful it was.

    I also cannot wear true red without it looking completely garish, even though I never shy away from bold makeup. What I do to make it look better (at least in my opinion!) is use a dark berry colored lipliner, and blend the red into it, so only the center part of my lips is true red. I still get the bombshell red pout, without the clown-ness. 🙂

      OMG megan tell him he made my childhood all the more horrifying 😀 great tip!!!!!!!!!! must try that!

    My go to red is Maybelline 24hr lipcolor in Keep the Flame. I only wear it when I’m wearing red though.. and with a barely there neutral eye and bronzer vs. blush. Got to balance it out. My biggest gripe about red is the mess, it winds up everywhere and looks awful as it wears, so high maintenance. The one I wear stays right where I put it though so no worries.
