Keeping with the Valentines theme, and because it’s literally everywhere at the moment, I thought I would give you my thoughts on some of my fave red lippies out there.
Is it just me that thinks these lipsticks have the most awful smell? If you can get over that hurdle though, the pigmentation is quite good for the drug store. I have the Eva red which is a slightly darker toned red. True to their word this particular collection boasts four slightly different toned reds so your bound to find your fit.
RiRi has certainly hit the mark with her makeup line. The packaging of this lipstick is worth a buy alone. It almost looks like a really sleek nail polish bottle. Let’s not forget the sculpted applicator that doubles as a liner and liquid lipstick in one smooth motion. Ri Ri claims this is a universal red. While I think no color can be truly universal, this bright almost blue toned red would definitely suit a lot of people. It makes an impact. However I personally found it require a fair bit of tweaking and can start to look messy.
Of course not everyone is comfortable wearing such a statement lip, or red simply isn’t their color. Mac is great because they have many lipsticks which are a subtle take on red. Morange is a muted orange toned red. As well as being great for the summer, it can easily be an easy alternative to that red.
