Red Lips♥

Slowly but surely I have been movin away from a nude lip everyday, long gone are the days where MAC Myth was the only lipstick I used. Now I am into pink, bright colours and even reds. So I thought I would show you the 3 red lipstick shades that I have had on rotation since the days have got darker and colder. In winter I prefer red lips, there is no logic to it but for me I like red over pink this time of year.

♥ Clinique Colour Surge Lipstick 


This has been my favourite red lipstick for about 3 years now, sadly this is my last tube as I believe it has now been discontinued. The formula gives me a rich pigment on the lips, with also giving a beautiful shine and it lasts too. The colour is Red Drama.

♥ Elizabeth Arden Anniversary Lipstick


Firstly I love the name 'Red Door Red' and from a brand like Elizabeth Arden you know its going to a statement red, which it is. It's the perfect cross between a statement red lip with the wearable factor of a sheer formula. With the subtle shimmer throughout it gives the lips a fuller look too. Now because it is sheer it doesn't last as long, but for a first time red lipstick I would suggest this.

♥ LimeCrime


Hopefully you have seen my video on the brand before, I have 4 lipsticks in total and I love them all dearly. The shade is Retrofuturist. It is bright and bold, it looks great on and it fast becoming a favourite lippie of mine to wear. I was really surprised with the lasting power too, it lasts through many sips :)

Swatches
in same order as above


They are are cool tone shades too, and the Clinique shade is the darkest shade.
What's your best shade of red?

I've been the same in terms of darker lips, but I haven't been as brave as you! I really like ASIA by Rimmel's Lasting Finish lipsticks, but I've also been trying to pull off a lipstick from Bourjois's So Rouge line.. it's hard lol.
