For me a red lip is so classic and versatile and it can be worn by anyone. With the holiday season approaching i'll be wearing it a lot more, and it can really vamp up a simple black outfit. I'm probably not confident to wear the look for a simple shopping trip but i'll be bringing it out for any parties over the christmas holiday. Here are my favourite products for creating that perfect red lip...

Lip Liner | I picked up this Topshop lip liner probably over a year ago to match my Lady Danger Mac lipstick. Wheels on Fire is a bright poppy tomato red shade  and the perfect match for most of my red lippies. The formula is velvety and smooth to apply and helps diminish any bleeding onto the edge of my lips. Priced at £5 I have found the Topshop lip liners to be a great alternative to MAC.

Lipstick | I bought the Kendall Jenner Estée Lauder Lipstick a couple of months ago with a Groupon voucher, so it was £15 rather than £25 - bargain! I was instantly drawn to this after seeing how gorgeous is looked on Kendall - admittedly I will never look like Kendall but a girl can try! The lipstick has a matte finish but is still moisturising and doesn't dry my lips out like I have found with other lipsticks. The lipstick is also shaped to perfectly glide over your lips and sculpt all the curves of your lips.

Liquid Lipstick | If I'm ever looking a for a liquid lipstick I always head to Bourjois as I'm obsessed with there Rouge Edition Velvet Lipstick. Hot pepper is a bright pepper red shade with orange undertones. The velvet lipstick applies smoothly with a matte finish and 24hr staying power. 

Balm | If I'm ever feeling a subtle red lip i'll always pick out my Benefit Benebalm for a glossy red glow to my lips. The balm contains mango butter to keep lips moisturised and the colour is buildable for a brighter look leaving you with kissable lips.

What are your red lip choices?!



  1. The Kendall lipstick is so gorgeous but just a little out of my price range! For red lips I like to use a dark colour like Russian Red or something brighter like Lady Danger. x

  2. Oh this is a lovely post, I love a classic red lip! My favourite red lipstick is the NARS' Velvet Matte Lip Penicl in Red Square which has some orange tones in its colour. For a budget red lip I love using Rimmel's Exaggerate Lip Liner in Red Diva paired with L'oreal's Color Riche Lipstick in Liya's Red. I'll have to try out these offerings though - love the look of the Kendall Jenner lipstick :) x

  4. I'm obsessed with the Kendall Jenner lipstick! I find it more of a spring/summer hue but I've still been able to wear it throughout the fall.

  6. I've been searching for the perfect red! The one I have now comes off too "neon", so I'll definitely be checking some of these out!


  7. I really want the Kendall Jenner lipstick! It looks stunning and that's so great that you managed to get money off of it! I love the photo you've taken for this post :) xo
