If you’re anywhere within the vicinity of a Walgreen’s or Duane Reade, you should have seen millions of images of a Red Nose (and maybe bought one – or many) in preparation for today.
Today is Red Nose Day! The foam red nose is a small symbol to allow people to come together and have fun, thus cheerfully raising funds (or funs, if you’re being punny) to save and improve children’s lives.

There is also a special on NBC! “The Red Nose Day Special is a live 2-hour primetime television event that brings together the biggest stars for a night of fun and laughs.”
One of the sponsors for Red Nose is Essie. They had a small four color red collection (did you see it when I posted on IG?) just for the day, and I got my hands on Jelly Apple. One thing led to another and I figured – what’s a red nose without a red lip? Indisputable logic – no? Here are a few of my trusty red faves and some brand new additions I’m giving a try.
Top to bottom (L to R in swatch below): Wet n Wild – Red my mind, Mac Retro Matte– Feels so grand, Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick– Beso, Revlon Ultra HD Matte– Passion, Stila Stay All Day Vinyl Gloss– Poppy Vinyl, Colour Pop Matte X– Love Life, Lime Crime – Red Velvet
I’m currently falling fast into the abyss of germs and runny noses so I am refraining from wearing my nose to prevent all the nasties. But I am polishing my nails and my lips!
Are you planning on checking out the special on NBC? How do you get silly? And what’s your favorite red?!
