Red Lipstick Revelations


Red lipsticks is something that instantly makes me feel glamorous!  It just adds that sophistication and glamour to any look as well as adding a certain effortlessness even though it may not be effortless.  So today’s blog is going to be sharing with you my favourite go to red lipsticks.

First up is a brilliant drug store red that I could not live without, it’s the Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate in 110 – This is a vibrant orange red that is super creamy and really pops on my pale skin.  It isn’t super long lasting which is a shame but this also means that it isn’t drying so plusses and minuses.  I actually like to pop this on after a super long flight, its nice and creamy and does a brilliant job of making me look alive as opposed to the look of death I normally sport after a long flight.  Next up is a new one to my collection it’s the Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Outlaw – This was given to me by a friend who isn’t really into red shades so I was very happy!  Like most liquid lipsticks it’s very long lasting but also a little but drying, to be honest the whole drying this doesn’t bother me as long as I have a trusty lip balm to slather on the next day.  I recently wore this on a day out which included drinking and a lot of eating and boy did this stand up!  I only had to re apply just before we left the restaurant, so I was extremely happy with its performance.  Another long lasting beauty is the Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Red Square – This was the first Nars lip pencil I purchased and it was the catalyst for my obsession with them!  I have dedicated an entire post to these beauties.  They are long lasting yet creamy and the colour range is amazing.  Red square is the perfect orange red shade that I love to wear during the day, its looks fancy enough yet very wearable on the day to day basis.  An absolute cult favourite in the beauty world is MAC Lady Danger – Again this is another matte orange red lipstick, are you sensing a theme?.  Much like the Nars version it works on any occasion and wears like a dream.  Moving slightly away from the orange red shades it’s the Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Cruella – This is an absolutely stunning deep red shade that makes such an impact on any look.  I love wearing this with minimal eye makeup and lots of bronzer on a night out to make it really pop!  I’ll definitely be taking this with me overseas for a simple night look.  Now back to the orange red shades, I’ll finish with the luxurious Tom Ford Wild Ginger – I first saw Max Made use this on Lara Bingle and new I had to have it!  It is so beautiful on the lips, nice and creamy with a heck load of pigment.  I really need to use this more!

So there you have it, my favourite red lipsticks.  What are yours?  Any suggestions to add to my collection?
