Interview with RED Burlesque CEO Adam Coutts
As you all know I am a huge fan of a red lipstick. I have tried many shades, many brands and have my few favourite I always go back to. I am a huge make up fan myself. I have a huge box/room of makeup at home. Once upon a time I was a counter manager for Elizabeth Arden, my close friend also worked on the make-up counters and we both shared a pretty obsessive passion for make-up. I have always loved bold colours and the classic red lip. Having a cool skin tone myself I have been a good judge of what shade suits me, even with my ever changing hair colour!
For me personally I love a brand that is cruelty free, 100% allergy tested, fragrance free and enriched with vitamin E to moisturise your lips. Although a matte lip is a great look, a dry scaling lip is not! Would you believe that RED Burlesque lip shades tick every box! RED Burlesque offer the ultimate red lipstick in 20 different shades (yes, only red!) You’ve just found the most diverse, most luscious range of sumptuous red lipsticks on the planet!
RED Burlesque lipsticks are inspired by the sexy, teasy, steamy world of Burlesque – 20 shades handpicked and named after 20 of the world’s most renowned Burlesque performers.
I have interviewed the CEO Adam Coutts of RED Burlesque to learn more about the brand and give you all the inside info!
