Juliet knew the lips are where it’s at! Besides bagging yourself your very own Romeo, a kick ass red lip is a sure fire way to have an amazing day. From the second I walk out the door with my favourite lip colour on I feel like I am Beyonce and Michelle Obama rolled into one and no-one can stop me. Have you ever seen a woman with the bright red lips walk around looking shy and glum? No, me either!
Below are my favourite red lip colours, I literally can’t live without them.
Rimmel London Kate in 107
This colour is perfect for daytime, everyday wear. This isn’t too bright for the office/corner shop/gym (What?! A girl has got to try and look good even when sweating it out). It has a slightly purple hue which is fab as the cool colour helps make your teeth look pearly white!
Revlon Just Bitten Balm Stain in Romantic
This colour is so ‘English rose’ it makes me feel like friggin’ snow white. It’s light, dewy and so wearable. It feels moisturising on your lips but it doesn’t come off as easily as you might expect from something with such a balmy texture. Definitely one for red lipstick virgins. It looks like your own lip colour, just better.
Max Factor in Ruby Tuesday
This colour reminds me of summer, watermelons and ice lollies! It is a slightly pinky red which looks gorgeous with a tan and I personally think looks better on blondes. It has a nice creamy consistency and really has staying power. Best worn while sipping cocktails on the beach!
Limecrime Velvetine in Red Velvet
All I can say is please, if you take one thing from this post, buy a Velvetine. Go on Limecrime’s website, choose a colour and buy one. You will not regret it! These lip colours go on as a liquid (wand applicator) and dry as the most gorgeous matte colours you have ever seen. You would think they would feel drying or cakey on your lips but they feel light and make you feel like a 50’s pinup star. Just make that a star who carries around straws because these babies will stain your skin if they leave your lips. That being said, it does not budge from your lips all day until you want it to. I could write about these all day but just try it yourself ok? The range of colours is insane, I want them all.
