One of the most frequently asked questions on my blog is "What red lipstick is that?" The following list is my top 5 bright red favourites. Not to worry, there will be a second instalment of my moodier shades. What can I say? Some girls love nail polish, I LOVE lipstick.
MAC Matte Ruby Woo
is my number 1 go-to as it seems to stay on FOREVER and is that perfect blue-y cold toned red. Caution - if you're drinking red wine and are around a bunch of not so great friends you may be subject to staining this lipstick darker and no one will tell you you look foolish. It's happened to me.
Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Beso
- They are not kidding when they say stay all day. This lipstick is insanely unstoppable. You will never make up remover to get it off though. When applied it looks like a gloss but quickly dries into matte perfection.
Kat Von D Painted Love Lipstick in Stiletto
- I was slightly skeptical about the Kat Von D line at Sephora. She isn't exactly my cup of tea but my sister insisted that the make up was exceptional. She was not wrong. So far I'm obsessed with her blushes and lipsticks. Stiletto is a orangey-red shade that I haven't seen before yet.
Givenchy Le Rouge in 307 Grenat Initie -
This may have started as a impulse purchase during a Sephora VIB event but it is love now. Highly creamy with a semi gloss finish without the stickiness of gloss. It is a highly scented lipstick which I've never really come across - not sure how I feel about that yet.
On another note, my eyelashes are looking stellar thanks to Courtney founder of Lash Affair Lounge
in Edmonton. I decided to kick this holiday season up a notch by allowing myself to be a little lazier than usual. Lash extensions may just be my new best friend - there is nothing quite like waking up and already looking doe-eyed. Add lipstick and blush and I'm out the door. Each eye has over 130 mink lash extensions on it. If there is one beauty treatment you do for New Year's, this should be it.
