Color: Cruella/ Dolce Vita - scarlet red/ dusty rose
The red one for when I want to be bold and dramatique and the natural pink-brown one for when I'm feeling subdued & more professional (in my line of work, red lipstick doesn't always scream "professional" it's a little too showy for my work environment that already takes women a lot less seriously than men, sad but true). ...I bought the intriguing/train bleu set. This set is perfect for having a work appropriate color and then a color for going out during happy hour!
