The Perfect Red Lipstick




(T-B Chanel, Glo & Ray, Collection, Benefit & MAC)

I've always associated red lips with sophistication and elegance, Why else would Christian Louboutin paint the soles of his shoes red? I thought I'd show you five of my favourite red lipsticks from Collection to Chanel, in time for the festive season. Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet La Fascinante is my classic red, I've always wanted a red Chanel lipstick so when this was inside one of their iconic gift bags on Valentine's Day a little squeal of excitement was made. La Fascinante applies beautifully, lasts all night and one I am always asked what it is when wearing.

Collection Cherry Pop is my budget red, at just £2.99 it is one of the most affordable reds out there. Cherry Pop has a finish I'd liken to MAC Cosmetics Satin and for a cheap red it lasts a night out pretty well. No smeared lipstick chins here! Glo & Ray in Seduce* is the most glossy out of the five, it's a really creamy, deep red and perfect for Christmas. 

Benefit Betty Boop was one I won through a Cadburys Flake competition a few years ago, It's probably due to be chucked out but I can't bring myself to do it. It's very worn down as it's very loved. It's really vibrant red, super easy to apply and leaves a nice sheen on the lips.
Lastly is the driest lipstick I have ever worn, MAC Ruby Woo. It is one of MAC Cosmetics most popular shades because it really is the most beautiful red. I wear this when I want to perk up a boring outfit with a splash of red. Your lips need some serious care before wearing this but it's so worth it and I would recommend it again and again.

What are your favourite reds? I'd love to know!
