Sticking with the red theme of Valentine’s Day, my next Valentine’s post is on red lips. Who doesn’t like a red lip to compliment their dress or shoes? When I was first trying to find a red lip colour for this post I realised that not everyone would want to be going for the same kind of red so maybe it would be better for me to pick a range of different ones. And as you can probably tell that is what I did!
The first red, is less of a red, more of a hint of red, for those with lips that are still recovering from the effects of Winter. My first red is one of Benefit’s latest releases: Benetint, I got this for Christmas in the Benefit Sweet Tintations set, (post here,) and I really like this. The pay off it gives is just enough to add a noticeable tint to the lips without drying them out or being to bold. Another good thing about a balm is of course: its moisturising, and although it wont stay put for as long as the others it will you wont mind having to reapply if you get the relief of a moisturising balm.
Next is another product from a Christmas gift set, this time from the year before lasts Soap and Glory Girl-O-Whirl set, (post here.) This set came with a 6 lipsticks, one a burnt red, which I think is a good alternative to the classic statement red, for those who prefer to concentrate more on the eyes than the lips.
For lovers of the classic red lip, a Bella Pierre lipstick in Ruby, now I wanted to keep these lists as affordable as possible but this bold red retails at £20 however, on all the sites that I looked on are selling this for around £12. This is a pinky toned red which would probably be best for the daytime as it might not be as noticeable for night time.
Finally is a long lasting lip product to last through the night: Rimmel Apocalips in Big Bang, (post here.) This is a high impact, bright red lip lacquer that will make your lips stand out and it will not budge for hours. This would definitely be my pick for a going out lip as it is bold and beautiful.
I hope you like my red lip choices for Valentine’s Day, maybe there’s one that is to your liking, if not I have a Valentine’s Day Nude Lip post that shall be up very soon, so stay tuned for that. That’s all for today, have you planned your makeup for the 14th if so I would love to know what you’re going to wear, I have no idea yet!
