I am really happy to have this shade on hand, as it's the perfect 'day' red. It's the perfect tone of ruby - not too bright and not too dark. The shimmer, adds that additional element of chic because it's not too heavy. This one is definitely a keeper :)

Bobbi Brown Ruby Shimmer Lipstick
I have a very healthy obsession with lipsticks :) Bobbi Brown lipsticks are among my favourites, although I don't blog about them as much as I'd like because I usually stick to the basic shades. Recently, however, I decided to try a new colour and instead of getting my stand-by Sandwash Pink, I opted for the Ruby Shimmer lipstick. I recall reading somewhere that the late Caroline Bassette-Kennedy wore this as her everyday lipstick shade. She was such a classic and stunning woman, so I was happy to purchase a lipstick that she used to admire and love. I wanted to create a very natural eye makeup look, so all I did was use MAC Coquette eyeshadow along the lid and slightly into the crease. I by-passed the eyeliner and instead just applied some black mascara. I also used the new Bobbi Brown duo blush. I went with the Plum/French Pink duo and simply mixed the two blush colours together. I finished the look by applying the Ruby Shimmer lipstick. I really love this look to be honest - I can see why the late Caroline Bassette loved this lipstick. The look is very classic and polished!!!
