Today’s Red Lips Fashionista of the week is Shamaine Sam out of Philadelphia, PA and by way of Brooklyn, New York.


It’s always amazing to our “Brothers of the Leaf” (BOTL) that so many of us female cigar smokers, “Sisters of the Leaf” (SOTL) are more prone to a full-bodied cigar. Cigars that are strong in nature and pushes off-flavor notes of spicy and peppery to the taste, as well as having a thick smoke, which ranges in flavors that give these cigars complexity. A full-bodied cigar is big and powerful, which consists of cigars such as Rocky Patel, Camacho, Pardon, La Gloria Cubana, and Partags to name a few. However, regardless of what your desired preference is, cigars are refined instruments that are used for the purposes of relaxation and enjoyment.


Our Red Lips Fashionista of the week, Shamaine, has been smoking cigars for five years. She was first introduced to cigars while visiting Atlantic City with her boyfriend, who was having a cigar. Shamaine became instantly interested in the cigar that he was smoking, so she asked him could she try it. And, of course, he was surprised and hesitated about allowing her to try a cigar since she never smoked one at this point. Before he allowed her to try his cigar, he boldly made a disclaimer, which was “DO NOT INHALE.”


Shamaine took a couple of puffs of this cigar and she was inspired, and this started her cigar journey. When Shamaine puffed on this cigar, she felt a sudden sense of relaxation, calmness, and she felt in charge, very “Boss-like” smoking the cigar.  Also, she became overly zealous, which influenced her to purchase up to $300 worth of cigars that were on the lower scale but suited her palate at the time. However, her palate as matured now and there’s no way that she would make this type of investment on those cigars from five years ago.


As an avid cigar smoker and cigar enthusiast, Shamaine gets a lot of enjoyment from cigars such as it calms her nerves and it aids with helping her to relax.  Also, she likes the camaraderie from the “Cigar Community.” Shamaine likes the complexity of different flavors of each cigar that she smokes, and she usually smokes a medium-to-full-bodied cigar. The art of smoking a cigar for Shamaine brings forth a lot of elegance and it’s very enjoyable for her, as well as she believes that the cigar industry is constantly grown, developing, and evolving, which is fascinating for her.


Shamaine likes to pair her cigars with wine such as a Cabernet or Pinot Grigio. Also, she will have libation within the Scotch, Bourbon, and/or Whisky family, depending on her mood.

Some of Shamaine’s favorite cigars are brands from Oliva, Leaf by Oscars line, Padron, My Father Cigars, and Drew Estate. Shamaine’s statement is that “A cigar is as good as memories that you have when you smoked it. A cigar is a perfect complement to an elegant lifestyle.”


Shamaine is a very fashionable and classy lady.


Shamaine is a Traci Lynn jewelry consultant. Her fashion sense is very polished, confident, and cool!


A daily reality of fashion that’s not overdone, but nicely presented and that’s adaptable and identifiable with a touch of bright, cherry-red lipstick in a tone that best suits her skin complexation.


Shamaine’s looks scream “I took time for myself,” even if you didn’t. She always adds at least one accessory to complete her look whether it’s a statement necklace, a pop-of-color scarf, or a great pair of earrings.
