My makeup routine is pretty basic. I dab on a little foundation or pressed powder, mascara, blush, and then lipstick... and I'm good to go! But if I had to pick just one item for my daily essentials, it's got to be a lipstick! In fact, I've been having this (somewhat of an) obsession for lipstick, particularly red and pink shades. When I bought and tried Ever Bilena's Scarlet Matte Lipstick, I instantly fell in love.
I've taken cues from my favorite celebs like Christina Aguilera and Kate Bosworth, wherein their use of fiery red lipstick shades draw a lot of attention to their puckers. It's not that I am trying to draw attention to myself, but I love how a red lipstick can bring more pizzaz into your look. I also like Ever Bilena's matte lipsticks because they are easy to apply and comes with a smooth finishing texture. The shade in itself is red but comes with yellow undertones. It also lasts for a long period of time and doesn't get washed off quickly when I am eating or drinking.

I have a few other favorites from the brand as far as lipstick shades are concerned i.e. Pink Flame, Off Beat Pink, Zest, and Love That Red! But the Scarlet one is definitely my favorite. In fact, I am never without it!
