Red lips are classic and so sexy, I love rocking a powerful red lip every now and then. Matte red lips are a huge trend this season, which is just as well because I am definitely a matte lip girl. I prefer deep reds and true pillar box reds which are not too orange. I have picked out my favourite red lipsticks and put together my top five red lipsticks for you.
The shade 111 is a gorgeous true red, it gives that ‘berry stained’ look which is so on trend. These lipsticks are long-lasting and such a bargain!
Speaking of bargains, if you are a regular reader of my blog you will know that I am totally obsessed with the Bourjois Rouge Edition lipsticks, you can see the review here. If a lip stain is what you are looking for, these do not budge. The shade I have is a very deep berry but I believe there is a more pillar box red available, it is beyond me why I do not have this yet!
I rave about the NARS Audacious lipsticks a lot (video of my collection coming very soon!) I wouldn’t say they are matte but they are super long-lasting and feel so smooth on your lips. The shade Rita is the perfect red to suit every skin-tone.
What is not perfect about this matte red Chanel number? The packaging is luxury, the colour is gorgeous and it is matte. I like to call this my Summer Red, it is brighter than the others and has a nice Spring like tint to it.
This Clinique lipstick is the newest red lipstick from all five I have mentioned in this post, I discovered it when I got it free with a Glamour magazine. I was pleasantly surprised by the gorgeous shade, hydrating feeling and how long lasting it is. I wore it a lot over the Christmas period and got compliments every time.
These are my top five red lipsticks, all a bit different to each other but they are all gorgeous and I use them all quite a bit. What are your favourite red lipsticks?
