Hot Reds - Lipstick Favourites

Red lipstick is a classic. Weather you're wearing it with a full-face of make-up or just as a pop of colour with a casual outfit it always looks good. I love a red lip and as well as wearing it on nights out I have also started wearing it in the daytime aswell!
A few weeks ago I did my Pink & Pouty - PINK Lipstick Favourites post and after having so many lovely comments on both here and twitter I thought what better than to do the same thing with my favourite and most used red lipsticks!

Weather blonde or brunette (and more or less any other colour), pale or dark skinned red lipsticks always seem to compliment a person. They are such an easy way of taking your look to the next level, a simple outfit and natural make-up can be totally transformed by just adding a red lip. I love a plain and simple eye with a bold lip which I've noticed recently on a few celebs, it looks gorgeous.

Obviously I don't think there are as many shockingly different red shades out there on the market as pink but still my favourites still consist of 8 lipsticks, just like my pink post! These aswell are mostly cheaper drugstore brands which is always good for the bank balance!






















1. 17 - Hot Stuff
2. e.l.f. - Fearless
3. MAC - M.A.C. Red (also featured in my Colours Of The Rainbow Tag Post.)
4. Rimmel - 321 Diva Red
5. Rimmel - 170 Alarm
6. e.l.f. mineral - Cheerful Cherry
7. e.l.f. - Posh
8. e.l.f. matte lip colour - Rich Red


I'd say my most worn out of all of these are numbers 1, 3 & 5. I only recently just got number 8 and I hadn't used a product like this before but I love it! So easy to put on and the colour lasts for ages - I think I also got this in the sale on e.l.f. so it was really really good value for money too! 
Another thing I love to do is use my Kat Von D Everlasting Love Liquid Lipstick over the top of the brighter reds, it really helps keep the colour on for longer and I love the finish it gives.

I used to have the Barry M limited edition red lipgloss which I lived it, I thought it was fantastic and I didn't even have to wear it with a lipstick all the time BUT it has run out so if anyone knows of any amazing red lipglosses (which aren't too crippling for the bank balance) please let me know!

Here's just a few photo's of me with these lipsticks on.

What are your favourite red lipsticks?

  3. Great range of lipsticks, I really love red lipstick too. Revlon's Super Lustrous Lipstick in Really red (006) has to be one of my all time favorites and its not too pricey either!

  4. Wow, I'm incredibly jealous of your lipstick collection! I've only got two - MAC's 'Lady Danger' and 'Russian Red'. I think it's about time I invest in some more.

  5. The Rimmel Alarm looks gorgeous. I always shy away from red lipsticks for some reason, maybe I'm just not confident enough to wear them, but I'm going to dare myself to wear one next time I'm getting dressed up :)

  14. ELF also do a really fab red lipgloss - Studio Glossy Gloss in Merry Cherry. It's a much truer red than the pictures on the site suggest! I'm also a big lover of that Matte Lip Colour you showed from them, have you tried the Natural colour? It's beautiful!
