I wanted to take a few minutes to talk about these two shades by Maybelline that I picked up lately! The shades are much more similar than I had hoped when I picked them up, but I think they are both a really great start to exploring those bright red Taylor Swift style shades that I just love love love the look of right now. (And really, who doesn’t?)

The two shades pictured above areĀ Red Revolution andĀ Plum Perfect, both of which taught me very quickly not to trust the store display. Red Revolution is about as red as they come, but leaned a little more toward the pink spectrum than I had originally hoped. With Plum Perfect I hit the opposite end, and it wasn’t nearly as purple as I wanted. Check out the two shades in the photos included with this post. (And feel free to click through for a larger view!)

So, as you can see, these are two pretty similar colors, and not quite what I expected, but I

love both of them. I’d love to add a deeper red to my arsenal pretty soon, but for now I’ve been enjoying the Red Revolution when I want something bright and kick-ass and in your face, and the Plum Perfect for when I want to do something a little more toned down but still want that red look.

Next up, hopefully I can increase the variety in my shades a bit and find something that’s really more what I’m looking for! And now I know to never trust the store displays for color…
