It’s that time of year again! Valentine’s Day. Giant and ridiculous red boxes of candy are already lining Duane Reade’s shelves, and boyfriends everywhere are debating which color flowers to buy their ladies (WINK WINK, darling boyfriend of mine). But I digress. I usually hate going out on Valentine’s Day: the cheesy “V-Day” menus, the impossibility of getting a reservation, the awkward couples who just started dating but still feel obligated to do something and are now making everyone around them feel awkward too, etc, etc. And yet, it is a chance to get dressed up, even if you’re enjoying watching Real Housewives at home with your best friends. While I strongly scoff at the idea of being super obvious and wearing red (you might as well just wear giant heart antlers), Valentine’s Day really is the perfect time to try out some red lipstick, especially if you’re usually red-shy (clearly, we are big fans year-round).
Luckily, Mally Beauty has provided us with one of their fabulous Perfect Red Lip Kits ($35) to giveaway to one lucky lady on Twitter. This kit, which contains a primer, liner, and lipstick, is a foolproof way to get a long-lasting and super-hydrating deep red lip. Want to enter? Follow BrooklynDolls on Twitter here, and then simply Tweet the phrase “I want to win #PerfectRedLips this #ValentinesDay courtesy of @MallyBeauty and @BrooklynDolls.” Winner will be selected at random.
Good luck everyone! Contest runs now through Friday, February 1st!
