So a few weeks ago I did a post similar to this but instead of Which Red Lip it was Which Mascara! I enjoyed writing the post so much that I had to write another. I was going through all my lip products and when I stumbled across my red lipsticks this post had to be done…
As someone who isn’t always brave enough to wear a red lip, after looking through these I think this Summer that will all change! This is Sleek’s True Colour Lipstick in O.M.G. This is a beautiful red. I wouldn’t class it as a true red, but I think you could get away with wearing this with a lot of outfits. It has very smooth consistency and glides on the lips like a dream. It is also very opaque but the staying power isn’t brilliant and you may find it smudges quite easily. This will be perfect for any ‘girl on the go’ as it is so compact and cute.
If you aren’t looking for a statement red lip something like SEVENTEEN’s Mirror Shine Lipstick in Roasted Red. This is quite a sheer pinky red that compliments a lot of outfits. The packaging is really clever and has a little slide out mirror just big enough to see your lips in. As for the formula it is quite easy to apply but it’s not as opaque as any of the others I am posting about. It has a nice shine to it but it will cling to dry patches more often than not.
When these first came out I wrote a review on them which you can see here. I love the Rimmel Apocalips range, they have a brilliant colour range and staying power which really make these a must have product. What is also good is that when they do start to wear off it leaves a nice stain. The only downside of these are how tricky they are to remove, I guess you could say that that is an advantage. Colour wise this is a very bright red with slight pink undertones, the finish looks almost glossy or liquidy, it’s not for the faint hearted.
This is MUA’s Shade 13 lipstick. MUA are currently owning the really affordable makeup in the drugstore, their lipsticks are no exception. The texture of this is really moisturising and it glides onto the lips really nicely because of this. The colour payoff is also quite good for a lipstick that is only a pound! I think out of these five this is one of the more wearable ones because it isn’t quite so in your face and it is just on the verge of being classed as a pink.
Quite a new favourite red of mine is Avon’s Lipstix in Reddy To Go. The product is a different take on a chubby stick as it’s a thinner version. I think it is useful the fact it’s smaller as you can get a more precise application which I struggle to do with some chubby sticks. The colour is quite a bright red and the formula is less moisturising than others in this post but I prefer that. It isn’t matte but I wouldn’t say it has a shine. This is such a small product it can easily fit into any bag, so makes the perfect travel product!
I hope you enjoyed this post as much as I did, if you have any ideas for more Which Product Is For You I would love to know as these are some of my favourite posts to write!
