I’ve fallen back in love with red lipstick recently. Red lips make such a great statement, whether it’s for everyday wear or for a special occasion, so I thought it was about time that I shared my favourites with you.
Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil – Cruella £20. This Nars pencil is a gorgeous, deep red shade! I love the formula of this, it is very long lasting but not drying on the lips.
MAC – Russian Red £16.50. This is the perfect classic red shade. I’m all about those blue toned reds that make your teeth glow! It’s very long lasting but not drying on the lips.
Estee Lauder Pure Colour Envy – Envious £25.50. This is a warmer toned red, more of a poppy shade. I love this shade for a daytime red lip.
Benefit Double The Lip – Revved Up Red £16.50. This shade is more of a pinky red than a true red, but still one of my favourites. It has a built in lipliner shade that is slightly deeper, which adds definition and a subtle ombre to the lips which I like.
NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream – Monte Carlo £8. This is another blue toned red favourite of mine. I’m not the biggest fan of liquid lipsticks, but I really like the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams.
No.7 Moisture Drench – Soft Paprika £9.95. This is a very soft, warm toned red, perfect for days when you want something a little more subtle.
Estee Lauder Pure Colour Envy Liquid Lip Potion – Lethal Red £20. This colour is beautiful, such a perfect bright statement red. Although this is a liquid lipstick, it dries to more of a satin finish which feels really comfortable on the lips.
