Now, I don’t know if it’s just me, but when I wear red lipstick, I feel like I could conquer the world! I never used to, though. I had to wear it to dance competitions as a kid and it just always ended up everywhere between quick changes. In one of my old jobs, I had to wear red lipstick and I absolutely hated it! I have quite a large bottom lip and I always felt like it drew attention to it and I didn’t like that. A couple of years later and at the request/suggestion of a very lovely friend of mine, I began to wear it again. And something had changed and I began to love wearing red. Now my little collection of red lipsticks is getting slightly out of hand, but I thought I’d share my favourites with you guys!
So the first up is the shade ‘Tart’ by Princessa. This is one of my favourite shades of red. It’s very pigmented and lasts a super long time! Plus, it doesn’t really transfer to your teeth, which is good as that is completely embarrassing! However, it does say that it’s a matte lippy and it definitely doesn’t look very matte like when it’s on!
My ultimate favourite reds are in the shade ‘Bitten’ and ‘True Love’. They are liquid lipsticks by the brand KleanColor and I absolutely swear by them! They are matte when they dry and they do not move an inch from your lips all day! I went to Nando’s wearing one of these and not an inch of lipstick moved! I’ve also worn them on nights out and they still don’t move! The only problem with them is why you try to take them off, you end up with red all over your face! So you have to be super careful when you apply them and try not to make any mistakes because you are for sure not getting them off of your skin!
The fourth shade I swatched is the shade ‘Queen of Hearts’ by Collection. This was one of the first red lipsticks I bought and I had to repurchase it! It’s such a pretty colour and it’s super cheap, too! And let’s talk about how cute the shade name is! Unfortunately, I don’t think it lasts too long when it’s applied, but keep it in your handbag and you’re good to go!
Finally is ‘Lady Danger’ by Mac. The one of mine is actually a copy of the Mac one and I got it off eBay. It’s still packaged the same as a Mac lipstick and I’ve found the shade to be very similar. It’s probably not as long wearing as the Mac one, but for 99p off eBay, I can’t really complain!
