In the new film Side Effects, Steven Soderbergh‘s latest thriller, Rooney Mara stars in the lead role playing the wife of actor Channing Tatum. She is seen arm-in-arm with her handsome husband as they attend a black tie event. Not only is she dressed to kill by wearing a simple black gown, but the most obvious statement for this look is ultimately completed and refined by her bright, bold ruby lip.
You can get Rooney’s lips by wearing just ONE amazing product: Tarte LipSurgence Matte Lip Tint ($24.00) in Fiery — a stunning matte red. This product by Tarte is a wide, wind-up, crayon-shaped pencil which is very simple to apply right from the stick.
Since it has an angled tip, it achieves the precision and evenness that is most important when wearing any red or darker lip color. There is no need to use a separate liner, additional lipstick or even a lip brush.
If you choose, the lip tint can be applied lightly, for a more subtle or stained look. But, to to get Rooney’s electrifying bright lip in Side Effects, it is quite simple to achieve with this product, as it has the perfect amount of intensity and saturation of color. Layering is not necessary, as a single application does the trick.
The actual formula of the lipstick is made to perfection with a velvety, creamy texture. It is not drying and goes on super-smooth. LipSurgence Matte Lip Tint also protects against any issues often associated when wearing red shades or matte formulas.
The application is simple, as it glides on with ease and is filled with natural moisturizers to really soften and condition the lips, while at the same time preventing any chapping, cracking or color-bleeding over the lip line, as most red and darker lipsticks often do.
The product is long-lasting, so there are much fewer touch-ups. No need to worry about drinking your champagne and having to constantly reapply after each sip! This particular shade Rooney wears in the film, Fiery, is also a perfect red for anyone to wear! Tarte has successfully achieved this by developing a unique, diversified red shade that can be used on ANY skin tone! Wear Fiery anywhere you go, and you are all set to stand out from the crowd — as everyone will notice and want your stunning Rooney Mara lips!
Tarte‘s LipSurgence Matte Lip Tint also comes in five other other shades, ranging from brighter tones to a bit more natural. Be sure to grab as many as you can to compliment any makeup look.
