A Red Lip Round Up

A review of high end red lipsticks

In the run up to Christmas, I couldn't not feature a post on the timeless, classic that is a red lip.  If you think red lipstick isn't for you, I urge you to try one of these and think again.

Like the perfect pair of black skinny jeans or a camel wool coat of your makeup arsenal. Effortlessly wearable, chic and universally flattering.  

NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Cruella is the most perfect true red shade.  Neither too cool nor warm toned.  Opaque, long lasting but not drying.  No need for a separate lip liner or to worry about reapplying.

Tom Ford Lip Colour in Wild Ginger is a orange toned red.  Bright, bold and opaque in one swipe.  I love this for day time.  Thick and creamy consistency yet with a long lasting pigment.  Slick this on for an elegant, polished, striking finish. 

MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lipstick in Fashion Legacy, as it's a liquid lipstick, it has buildable coverage. Comfortable to wear and the blue based red colour is beautiful.

Special mention to NARS Lip Liner in Rose Bud which is a gorgeous dusky rose red and MAC Lip Pencil in Redd which keep things in place!

I hope this post provided some lipstick inspo ahead of the festive period!
