Ah red lipstick, it’s just my absolute favourite makeup item! For me it completes the look and makes me feel my pulled together self. I love how bold it is, and it just makes me feel that extra bit confident, and more alive. Over the years I have tried loads of shades of red, each being so unique and something I’m never sure how I coped daily without. I thought it would be a fun to delve into my red lippys, and show you my top picks, from glosses to mattes to satins, to liquid to stick, I have everything! *obsession alert*
Fenty Beauty; Stunna- Now I know I’ve done a full post about this so that speaks for itself, I am in love with everything about it, it just takes you from casual to full glam, the pigment in unreal and I am in loooove, if you want to read my full review, you’ll find it >here<!
Jeffree Star; Unicorn Blood & Designer Blood- These two liquid lipsticks are probably my all time favourite colours, I wear them daily. They last forever and they are the perfect shades of red. Unicorn Blood is the lighter of the two, and of course that means Designer Blood is darker red, with a slight gold reflect in certain lights. I’ve been through two of the both, and I am well in need of purchasing my third (hehe).
Urban Decay; Hex- Onto a lipstick now, this is a mega matte formula from Urban Decay and it’s probably my top favourite stick formula, it’s the most gorgeous dark red shade, which is perfect. Urban Decay updated there whole lipstick range, last year I think? & as soon as I saw they’d made the shade Hex I screamed with joy.
MAC; Russian Red- Now I don’t use MAC anymore, but I feel like I have to mention this lipstick, it’s defiantly my OG, and what got me loving red lipsticks, it’s Russian Red, which is a matte formula, I first heard about this shade from velvetgh0st on youtube, and as soon as I bought it, it became a daily essential. I’ve used up two I loved it so much. It’s just the perfect red shade with blue undertones which compliments my ghostly face well.
Sugarpill; Anti Socialite– I have this in both stick and liquid version so can you tell I like it? Haha! It’s the perfect deep vampy red, which is exactly what I love to wear daily against my ghostly complexion, I just think it compliments me so well! I mean also can we just take a moment for Sugarpills’ packaging!! LOVE IT!
L’Oréal; Ruby Opera- This is a gloss, now I don’t often wear glosses but it’s great to have one in your collection. This one by L’Oréal isn’t sticky either, so it’s my go to if I want a glossy red, which I think is a statement lip for sure. Sometimes I like popping a tiny bit of this over another lippy just to add a little shine. But if you do build it up it gives a very wet, shiny lip look.
NARS; Bette- I could lie, but the main reason I bought this because it’s so boujie, a magnetic closure, an imprint in the lipstick, and just the packaging overall like WOW. NARS in general are one of my favourite brands, and this lipstick doesn’t disappoint, it’s again.. a dark red, haha (what a surprise).
As you can see I love red lipstick, and I could babble on about it all day, I know I have a lot, but of course I need more, please tell me some of your recommendations below (so I have someone to blame when I buy more hehe).
