I’ve never been someone to do things by halves. So when I rediscovered my love of lipstick earlier this year (having been a gloss chick for like..ever) there was only one shade on my list.
All manner of glorious reds.
I blogged about Nars and Daniel Sandler back in November – these three below I have picked up since and am currently all manner of obsessed.
My favourite red of 2011 is YSL Rouge Pur Couture in No.1 – Le Rouge. It’s a true deep red, ridiculously long-lasting, non-drying and every single time I wear it I get compliments.
The middle lipstick is Make Up For Ever’s Moulin Rouge. Slightly darker than the YSL this is a true ‘Slut Lips’ red. Again long-lasting and non-drying.
And lastly, Bourjois Sweet Kiss No. 56 Rouge Pur Mesure is more tomato red and perfect for those minimal make-up, hair in a chignon days. The colour pops brilliantly. Not quite as long-lasting as the others but that is obviously reflected in the price.
And to keep them all in place for longer? Make Up For Ever’s Aqua Lip in 08C – Red.
A great shade for all red lipsticks, non-drying, helps stop any bleeding and lasts ages.
Feel free to leave me a list of your favourite reds – my bank manager won’t thank you but I surely will.
