Russian Red kisses for 2012!!!

New Year's Eve calls for something red.
It may be just a superstition but I don't care, I think it's fun!

To celebrate the arrival of 2012, my "something red" of choice was Russian Red lipstick by Mac:

I managed to save it unswatched for a month, so that I would first use it on New Year's Eve! Colour wise, it's everything I wished it was- though it's not as longlasting as I expected, it seems to smudge off pretty easily ;)

Also, now I have to get a lip brush to put it on-
notice my sloppy application?

On a more personal note:

I admit this time around will be no new year's resolutions for me. It may have worked in the past, but now life has changed. I've changed. All this hard-thinking and over-analyzing the aspects of my life I'd like to improve is messing with my head and causing me more stress. Instead, I'll focus my positive energy to my family, my lovely boyfriend and a few precious frendships. Cause at the end of the day, it's the little world that surrounds you that matters and make life worth living.

Happy New Year, my dears!
I'm wishing you good health, happiness and good fortune ;)
Lots of hugs and kisses,

Evi   xx

    Καλή χρονιά και σε σένα, Τινάκι! Όλοι μας έχουμε ανάγκη από λιγότερο στρες... Πολλά φιλιά!!! xx

  6. Happy new year kouklitsa! No new year's resolutions for me either. I'll just take it one day at a time, and enjoy every moment of 2012. Expecting nothing gets you everything, no?
    Russian Red looks good on your lips and skin tone! One of the reds that I'd love to have as well.
    Polla polla filakia and the best is always yet to come!

  7. Καλή χρονιά :) Υπέροχο το κραγιόν!!

  8. Beautiful color!
    I wish I could pull it off like you!
    And nope, I didn't notice the sloppy application!
    Haha :D

    Happy New Year! ^_^

  9. I recently bought Russian Red and I love it! great post =)


  10. the red is beautiful on your lips!!! how will you wear it with? soft eyes or heavy liner?? :P

    have a fruitful and joyful year, follow your heart and what is right - don't care about resolutions!

    supportssss!!!! best new year wishes!!!!

  11. Ohh it looks beautiful on you! But I'm surprised that you say it is not longlasting. Did you fill your lips with a good lipliner first? Because reds and bold colors definitely need a lipliner. I wore it with Mac's cherry lip pencil at the swarowski event and honestly it didn't budge all night. Try it!
    Anyway, I wish you all the best for the new year sweetie. May it bring whatever your heart desires! xxx

  12. Looks beautifull! You have really lovely lips! Full ,with a lovely shape to them!See?? The "urban legend"(haha!) that darker lip colors make your lips look smaller is not true at all!! I keep saying it!
    Does this have these kind of pinky undertones as shown on your pictures(and other pictures i've seen on line)? This is the only thing keeping me from buying this (as the dark lip color junky that i am).For me it's either a true berry color or a true "brick" red. The combination of the too (red with pink in it) doesn't look that good on me.Rambling again...oh :p .....me'geia sou!!

  13. Happy new year doll!! I agree with you about the no-resolutions thing, I'll do the same! Lovely shade, I'm using more reds this holiday season too :D

  14. I avoid resolutions for many years now and it proved good for me.
    Great color, suits you nice!
