What’s this? Me with a red lip? Don’t worry you haven’t stumbled across the wrong blog, my love for a purple lip still lives on, however I’ve stumbled across a budget brand that’s left me wanting to rock a red lip on more than one occasion. I find the slightly more soft finishes with a hint of shine suite me better and these Expert Last Lip Colours from NYC fit the bill.

Here I’ve mixed the shades 450 Pure Coral* and 452 Red Suede* to give a pinky hue to the traditional pillar box red. Pure Coral gives that orange/pink kick of colour whereas Red Suede is more similar to your NARS’s Cruella type. The formulas glide onto the lips and thanks to it’s pigmented finish, application is a breeze. The only issue I came across with these is the fact they like to transfer onto your teeth a lot. Take a look at my video that goes live on Friday to see what I’m talking about ;)

I think with a good lip pencil underneath this can be combatted and considering their super cheap price tag it’s hard to go wrong. Red lips – I think you are growing on me!
