In the beauty/makeup department, do you guys think there’s anything quite as classic and easy to wear than a beautiful red lip? To me a red lip as such a vintage/classic/retro vibe that i can’t help be feel super feminine when wearing one, even thought most days i’m wearing it with a pair of jeans and a t-shirt. But again, it works with the most casual style and also the fanciest of evening gowns… i mean, it’s perfection basically! Anyway since i’ve been rocking a red lipstick every single day for the past month (as you can see here, here and here!), i thought it would be a fun idea to share with you my 4 favorite at the moment…
From left to right: Ultra Glossy Stylo (SPF15) in Fire Red | Kiko – Matte Lip Color in Rich Red | E.L.F – Vice Lipstick Comfort Matte in Doubt | Urban Decay – Urban Sheen Lipgloss in Fiery Poppy | Kiko
I want to start with my absolute favorite one which is the E.L.F Matte Lip Color. I really love matte lipsticks and this one is actually one of the best formula i’ve tried so far, mat and hydrating at the same time. The color is very rich and it lasts a really long time even after drinking and eating it’s still there and easy to touch up when really needed! Gorgeous!
My second favorite one is the oh so gorgeous as well, Vice Comfort Matte from UD. That one is a definitely a brighter red and is a bit more creamy so i usually have to re-apply it entirely after a meal but personally i don’t really mind as i prefer something more gentle on my lips that i’ll need to touch up every now and then, rather than a long lasting product that’ll dry my lips out!
Now for the 2 Kiko ones, they are very glossy (as they both have the word gloss in their name) but their great pigmentation actually makes them totally show up as true red lipsticks with a bright sheen, which i love because even though i love my mat classic red lip, it’s kind of a statement where as a glossy one is a bit more subtle and easy to wear every day to go grocery shopping for instance!
What about you ladies, do you often rock a red lip? What is your go-to color at the moment? 🙂
