There’s nothing like a classic, beautiful red lip on a women, in my opinion!

At The Makeup Show New York City in May, I was introduced to a new brand of cosmetics by way of a beautiful, vibrant red lipstick. The brand? Julie Hewett Los Angeles. The lipstick? It’s from the brand’s Noir Collection and called Rouge Noir.

Check out the beautiful packaging as I opened it:

Not only is the packaging beautiful and thoughtful, with the gold tubing, but this red is a classic, movie star and true red, very glamourous! Here’s my lip swatches. In the sunlight, then in the shade, then a face shot with flash:

This lipstick has a creamy matte formula, with great staying power. It’s got a base of camellia oil and essence of rose bud. I wore this for five + hours and it did a great job.

Julie Hewett is a Hollywood makeup artist and she created the Noir Collection – six red shades and three for the “red-shy” – because of her experience on set for the movie, “Pearl Harbor,” where she needed a variety of reds for filming.

You’ll have to check out the store locator here to find out where you can buy Julie Hewett’s cosmetics, but you can also purchase them online. In fact, Rouge Noir is available here on the brand’s website for $24. Is it worth $24? The packaging, the quality – it’s all luxe. In fact, when I am able to place an order, I want to order the limited edition makeup bag that comes with Oona Noir lipstick ($32)! I’d love the six-piece set ($144) but, you know, wedding planning and all that! LOL

So, do you love a good red lip? What do you think of Julie Hewett’s Rouge Noir? Does it pique your interest? What’s YOUR classic go-to lipstick shade?!
