Red Lipsticks – THE 411

I am a lover of the beauty that is Red Lipsticks! I definitely appreciate the drama it can bring to a look, and it’s great for feeling sexy!

I hear from a lot of lovely people, that they are afraid of wearing the Red colour on their lips and are afraid of embracing their inner sexiness in worry that they will look ‘out of place’ or the more cliche saying they say ‘Red just doesn’t suit me!’

But honestly there is a red for everyone! From the Deep, dark Burgundy shades to the Cherry / Pure Reds and the in betweens of the two above, there is a shade of red that will suit anyone and everyone!

So I decided to compile a bunch of my favourite Red Lipsticks in light of my love for the colour and show you all the different colours of red that you can wear & make you want to explore the world of the Red lipstick!

As well as this, I’ve included a range of different priced lipsticks to show you that you can enjoy a lovely red shade with any budget you’re working with too!

    1. Oh my god! I need you to go to MAC ASAP ๐Ÿ™Š and get yourself Ruby woo :-p hehehe & Shanghai express is another good choice lovely for a deep burgundy red :-p !!! Thank you so much for the lovely comment ๐Ÿ’— <3 ๐Ÿ™‚ xoxo

    1. Thank you so much sweetie, but I really think they will suit you! If you’re worried about going too bold in the beginning try a berry/ light shade of red first and start building it up till you’re comfortable ๐Ÿ™‚ xoxo

  1. You have a massive collection of red lipsticks!!! I like them all, they are all slightly different and I guess it depends on the mood which one you are going to wear. I only have one red lipstick, which I have had for ages as I hardly ever wear lipsticks..

    1. Thank you so much Gorgeous ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’‹ I love the MAC Ruby Woo, it’s such a great versatile lipstick ๐Ÿ™‚ Have a Great day ๐Ÿ’‹๐Ÿ˜Š xox

    1. Thank you so much Patricia ๐Ÿ™‚ I wanted to do this blog post to help everyone find their perfect red lipstick and glad it was received that way ๐Ÿ™‚ <3 xoxo

  2. all of these lipsticks look fantastic on you! I do love a red lip! nothing is so glam as a red lip and I agree…there is a shade of red for everybody, it’s just about matching the shade and our skin tone,… in the past my fav was True Red by L’oreal, but right now I’m looking for a new one…Shangai express looks like one that might look good on me, so I’ll try to keep it in mind. Marlyn also seems divine!

    1. Thank you so much lovely, I really do appreciate the kind words ๐Ÿ™‚ !!! shanghai express is a fave of mine & I have heard so many lovely things about the True Red from Loreal ๐Ÿ™‚ will have to give it a go xox
