Blogmas Day 5 ¦ The red lip edit

Today I thought I would show you some of my favourite red lipsticks. We all love a good festive red so I have a few options with every type of undertone.
The Long lasting red - MUA Lip Lacquer in the shade Reckless
This is a really beautiful deep red shade which lasts so well. It is incredibly matte on the lips, despite the fact it isn't the most hydrating as long as the lips are prepped well it sits really nicely. Due to it being so matte it does last a good 6 hours as long as you don't eat anything super oily.
The Pink toned red - Dose of Colors Matte liquid lipstick in Kiss of fire
The Dose of colors Liquid lipsticks are some of my all time favourites, they sit so beautifully on the lips whilst setting to a velvet finish. These also last really well, I find I get around 8 hours of wear out of this even when I eat oily foods I find this still lasts really well. This shade is a gorgeous pinky red shade and one of my all time favourites.
The Berry toned red - Rimmel Kate Moss Matte lipstick in 107
This is my all time favourite wintery red. Despite the fact this is a matte lipstick it feels incredibly comfortable, it's just one of those colours that I reach for when I'm not sure what type of red to go for and it just works perfectly with any look you'd ever want to wear a red lip with.
Reckless, Kiss of fire, 107, Virgin, Lady danger
The Classic red - Illamasqua Glamore lipstick in Virgin
This is just the perfect classic red shade, not too blue toned, not too pink toned just perfectly balanced. I find most of Illamasqua's lipsticks to be quite drying however the glamore formula is beautiful. It's slightly glossy yet incredibly long lasting but also feels very comfortable on the lips.
The Orange toned red - Mac Matte lipstick in Lady Danger
Finally for today I thought I would pick out an Orangey toned red for those who wouldn't normally go for a classic or pinky red. Although this does have a tendency to make my teeth look a little bit yellow it is still a beautiful shade. It is a matte formula again however it feels very comfortable as with most of Mac's matte lipsticks.
So that's it for today I'd love to know what your favourite red lips are!


  1. I remember watching Zoella many years ago wearing the Rimmel 107 lipstick and everyone was going crazy about this lipstick, I thought it would be too dark for me. But I finally purchased it and I LOVE IT!!! Such a pretty shade! x


  2. Gorgeous shades, truly perfect for this festive season :)
