There’s nothing better than a red lip to tie your whole outfit together. You can’t get more classier than an all black ensemble and a sophisticated red pop of colour. During the colder months, I think there is just something mysterious and powerful about a red lip that can bring any girl a world of confidence. Some of my favourite red shades range from pinky-reds to dark matte formulated lipsticks.
BOURJOIS COLOUR BOOST LIP CRAYON IN RED SUNRISE
A more “casual” kind of red lipstick which is almost more of a lip butter hybrid. This pinky toned red is perfect for those cooler days when you want to add a bit of oomph, but also looks divine when worn with a tan. The creamy, buttery formula is wonderful if you suffer from dry lips like myself, and keeps them hydrated throughout the day.
RIMMEL LASTING FINISH BY KATE MOSS IN 22
I’ve said this time and time again, this is my Taylor Swift shade of red, and reminds me of her trademark red lip she so often rocks. I love the subtle pinky-blue undertone of this lippy, which really gives the illusion of whiter teeth. I love the formulas of the Rimmel London lipstick because they just last for hours!
RIMMEL COLOUR SHOW OFF IN 230 RED FEVER
I’ve had this lippy almost long enough for it to be illegal, but I just can’t bring myself to throw away my first ever red lipstick I bought. I love the blueish undertones that again helps with brightening your pearly whites, along with the matte finish that doesn’t budge all night.
MAYBELLINE BOLD MATTE IN 6 DEEP RED
I am obsessed with this range from Maybelline, and think this is the perfect wintery shade of red! You may began to sense a pattern here, that I’m obsessed with the matte finish.
RIMMEL LASTING FINISH MATTE BY KATE MOSS IN 107
On the complete other end of the scale, is this dark beauty! With more purple, berry-like tones this lipstick is my new favourite classic to wear, especially during autumn. One of my favourite YouTube vloggers, Zoella AKA Zoe Sugg, is also a big fan of this shade and is often seen sporting it in her beauty and fashion videos.
