Red, my new found obsession. Pulling off le rouge has never really been my forte, but I’m all about that red pout these days. Ya know?
The Bourjois lipliner in Berry Much is what really converted me to redism. The rich and creamy lipliner has that perfect berry color – which explains the name. It looks beautiful throughout the whole year and it’s the only red shade that I enjoy wearing with a smokey eye. Very daring, right?
NARS has offered me nothing but love and it deserve the same in return. Two of their lipsticks have made it to the top. Numero uno is the famous Velvet Matte lip pencil in Cruella and numero dos is Charlotte from the Audacious line: very different, but equally stunning. Charlotte is this gorgeous heart-melting deep berry shade, whereas Cruella is more of a classic passe-partout red.
The next one has one of my favorite lipstick formulas of all time. L’Oreal has won my heart with Cocorico. It reminds me of fun and colorful festivals. The red-apple shade is bright, playful, and delicious. As for the formula, it’s super creamy, highly pigmented, and leaves the lips looking irresistible. Rawr.
Wow by Wojooh’s Tooti Frooti is a gorgeous framboise. Now, the only thing that I don’t appreciate is its glossy finish. I’m more into mattes at the moment, but willing to compromise for the sake of the juicy color.
Coming from someone who always admired red lipstick from far away, life wouldn’t make sense without these five shades.
What are your favorite reds? Have you ever tried these before?
