Recently I have become really into red lipsticks, I wear them nearly all the time and this colour is my first port of call if I am going out somewhere. Today I have narrowed my collection down to show you my top 5 favourites.
l'oreal rouge caresse 'aphrodite scarlet' (post)
I honestly get fooled by this lipstick every time. I haven't gone mad, the bullet looks full on red, but it comes out more of a candy pink. Although it does have slight darker red tones to it which is why I have still included it. The texture is a lovely balm type and very moisturising too.
Barry M 'shade 121'
This is a very vibrant red, with real orange tones to it. It is probably the most drying red I own, so a balm is definitely needed beforehand. The colour is very pigmented although it can tug slightly, so is best applied with a lipbrush.
l'oreal color riche 'red passion'
The truest red I own, the closest to postbox red I have. It has a slight shimmer to it, but not enough to make it a frost effect. Its perfect teamed with a black winged eye.
MAC 'ronnie red' (post)
I love this lipstick, its red but with a slight pink undertone to it. This is a perfect lipstick if your slightly afraid of bold reds. The sheen to this lipstick is beautiful and its actually one of my favourite reds of all time.
l'oreal color riche 'feeric fuschia' (post)This is a nice berry red, really cute for when I am having those darker looking days. It has a slight glitter effect to it with lovely purple tones.
