Last week I shared my Purple lipstick edit with you, today is the red edit!
There's nothing more classic than a red lip. Red lippy is perfect for 99% of occasions, whether it's a night out or to jazz up a day time outfit, you can't go wrong with a good red!
This picture really doesn't do much justice to the various shades of red that I own, it makes them all look fairly similar, oops!
But there's a mix of matte, retro matte and satin finishes in my collection, with some blue toned and some orange toned colours.
My personal favourites? Urban Decay's Bang is definitely up there. The formula is so creamy, it's almost like putting a paint on your lips. The staying power is incredible, I'll wake up the next day with this still on my lips, even if i've attempted to scrub it off the night before. The colour is an orangey-red, very bold and bright - it's just amazing.
Relentlessly Red is more of a pink-red. It's very matte, as it's a Retro Matte formula. Although, I don't find it to be too drying, but I'd definitely recommend slapping a bit of lip balm on first!
If you're on a budget, I'd definitely have a look at Collection's red lipsticks, especially Jesy's red colour from Little Mix's collaboration with the brand. The colour is very bright but the staying power and pigmentation is also amazing - especially for £2.99!
What are your favourite reds?
