Well this turned out to be a much more picture heavy post than I imagined! When I planned it out I didn't actually realise I had so many red lip products - and here I always thought I was a nude girl at heart. There's a something for everyone I feel in this post so lets get cracking -
Chanel Rouge Coco Shine - Monte Carlo : The one for those who like it subtle. I mean this is about as subtle as you can get in the red lip world. It adds the slightest hint of red and shine which is great for a played down red lip.
Rimmel Colour Rush Balm - On Fire : This is a step up from Monte Carlo. It's still sheer enough that it's not completely overwhelming for girls not used to red, but there's a little more pigment in there with a pink undertone. There's still a glossy shine and the balm element so it's great if your lips don't agree with matte formulas.
MAC - Lady Bug : A true tomato red, I really love this one. It's more of a "day" red for me. I associate deep classic Hollywood reds with looking glam for a night out - hence tomato red for daytime wear! This tone looks nice on deep skin tones too. I tend to like this better on me when I have a tan/fake tan on.
Maybelline Superstay 14hr Lipstick - Non-Stop Red : I absolutely love this red. It's something completely different to all the others I have. It's super matte, but it's vibrant and has a gorgeous pink tone. Definitely one for making a statement. You will need some lip balm under this one ladies.
YSL Rouge Pur Couture The Mats - 202 Rose Crazy : This is a radiant matte formula with stretch technology - which means that it is so comfortable to wear it's ridiculous. I've done a full blog post on this before so I wont go into too much of a love rant. I'd highly recommend the formula and they have plenty of different toned reds to choose from.
MAC - Mac Red : This was the first red lipstick I ever bought - and it's still going strong. It's a satin finish, so more comfortable to wear than MACs matte offerings. It's deep and blue toned, so your teeth look whiter which is a win in my book. This tone suits lots of skintones too.
NYX Mega Shine Lipgloss - Plush Red : I've had this for quite a long time, but I admit it's not something I reach for often. As it's a gloss it can be a little more high maintenance than your average red lip look. I get a bit afraid I'm going to smear this all over my face so I wear it when I wont be eating and/or out of reach of a mirror to check I don't look like Krusty the Clown. Despite the wear difficulties it is a beautiful shade and finish.
NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil - Cruella : I spoke about this in slightly more detail on Monday. It's a fairly new purchase for me and I love it. It's the deepest red I own and I love the matte finish.
