Although I have a penchant for dark berry lips, this doesn’t mean that all the red shades I own get banished to the back of the cupboard. Yes, they don’t get much wear in comparison to some of my fav wine coloured selections, but that being said I do find myself reaching for these bold lips on more than one occasion. For most, choosing between their top red lipsticks is a deliberation that can leave them pondering and debating over which ones make the cut. Instead I have three that sit pride of place, they are a solid bunch ranging from the more orange toned red through to that classic pillar box selection. All fantastic formulas they last throughout the day ensuring you don’t end up with that tell tale faded red line around your lips.
Budget from L’Oreal – secret, this is actually my fav red lippy of the lot and is the one I reach for the most! Part of the Colour Riche Range their Exclusive Pure Red in Julianne’s Pure Red is a real beaut. Something about it’s slight orange undertones and blendable formula not only makes application a breeze, I find it the most wearable shade out of the bunch.
Glamour from Giorgio Armani – if you are looking for a true indulgent piece, look no further than this Giorgio Armani purchase. Their Rouge d’Armani Lipstick in the shade 400 is luxury personified with sleek black packaging and magnetic closure, you even get the logo embossed on the lipstick bullet itself. Formula wise, its a tad more drying in comparison however this classic tone suits a multitude of complexions.
Long Lasting Colour from Kat Von D – for long lasting coverage it has to be this Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Outlaw. Although liquid in application this drys to a matte finish that sticks around all day (and throughout a three course dinner). The most drying of the bunch I recommend an intensive balm before application to keep those lips in tip top shape but rest assured with this bold lip and won’t be budging anywhere.
