I have always been obsessed with the ‘50s and ‘60s glamour icons Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor, Grace Kelly…The list goes on and on. I never quite felt comfortable with bright red lips.

I’ve compiled a list of the ultimate glamazon-inspired lip shades! These shades range from the palest …

Make Up For Ever Aqua Rouge Waterproof Liquid Lip Color ($24.00) in No #8 is my fav, as are Ruby Woo from M·A·C , Tesoro from Stila, Cruella from NARS, etc… and this shade …
Just to give you some background on the brand, Erno Laszlo was founded in 1927 by the Hungarian born Laszlo, a medical doctor who fell into dermatology after the notoriety he gained for transforming the complexion of Princess Stephanie of Belgium. His clientele read like a “Who’s Who” list and I always remember Marilyn Monroe being associated with the brand.
