The Perfect Red Lipstick



I've always associated red lips with sophistication and elegance, Why else would Christian Louboutin paint the soles of his shoes red? I thought I'd show you five of my favourite red lipsticks from Collection to Chanel, in time for the festive season.


(T-B Chanel, Glo & Ray, Collection, Benefit & MAC)

Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet La Fascinante is my classic red, I've always wanted a red Chanel lipstick so when this was inside one of their iconic gift bags on Valentine's Day a little squeal of excitement was made. La Fascinante applies beautifully, lasts all night and one I am always asked what it is when wearing.

Collection Cherry Pop is my budget red, at just £2.99 it is one of the most affordable reds out there. Cherry Pop has a finish I'd liken to MAC Cosmetics Satin and for a cheap red it lasts a night out pretty well. No smeared lipstick chins here! Glo & Ray in Seduce is the most glossy out of the five, it's a really creamy, deep red and perfect for Christmas. 

Benefit Betty Boop was one I won through a Cadburys Flake competition a few years ago, It's probably due to be chucked out but I can't bring myself to do it. It's very worn down as it's very loved. It's really vibrant red, super easy to apply and leaves a nice sheen on the lips.

Lastly is the driest lipstick I have ever worn, MAC Ruby Woo. It is one of MAC Cosmetics most popular shades because it really is the most beautiful red. I wear this when I want to perk up a boring outfit with a splash of red. Your lips need some serious care before wearing this but it's so worth it and I would recommend it again and again.

What are your favourite reds? I'd love to know!
