With Christmas comes a red lip, so for today's post I've picked out 5 red lipsticks, 5 prices, 5 finishes and 5 very similar results.
A classic red lipstick that's been around for over 80 years! It's a rich, cherry red with a glossy finish. Easy to apply, easy to wear.
The luxury lipstick that you won't want to use because of the beautifully embossed 'TF'. Applying a Tom Ford lipstick instantly makes you feel grown up, the packaging is to die for and this is a pretty bright red with slightly pink undertones. Moisturising *tick*, long lasting *tick* and bold *tick*.
It's hard to find an affordable matte red lipstick, but this is one I always come back to. It's matte but not too matte and it's the perfect true red. Choose this one if you want something incredibly affordable and if you like your lipstick to smell sweet!
The longest lasting out of all five lipsticks, the NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencils won't budge for anything! Dragon Girl is a slightly pinkier red, making it perfect for those of you (like me) that struggle to wear blue-toned lipsticks. It's easy to apply without a lip brush and doesn't dry out the lips at all, despite being the most matte in the group.
A classic shade from MAC's matte lipstick range and one that's constantly spotted backstage and on the red carpet. For some reason it showed up quite light in the photo but it's actually quite a true red, similar to the Rimmel 111 shade. A lip brush is definitely essential for applying this exactly where you need it and making it last!
So whatever your plans are this Christmas, pick a red and enjoy it!
