Shades of Red





When it comes to red lips, you can choose from many different shades of red. I picked out some of my red lipsticks with different undertones. I chose the orange undertoned red, the classic red and the dark and vampy red.

The Orange Red - Revlon Clourburst Lipstick in Coral 080
I think orangey red lipsticks are stunning in summer, I also think that they compliment brunette hair nicely. But obviously it looks lovely on other hair shades as well! I also love the formula of this lipstick, it's creamy and moisturising and doesn't dry out my lips.

The Classic Red - L'oreal Colour Riche lipstick in Scarlett Creme 461
I got this lipstick in a loreal set for Christmas, and it's my first red lipstick. The formula is amazing and, like the Revlon one, is creamy and moisturising. I'd say it has a satin finish as it isn't matte but isn't glossy either. This really compliments my skin tone as well I think, which is always what you want in a lipstick I'd say. I just wish I had blonde hair and a fringe then I could have the perfect Taylor swift red lip look, haha but fringes really dont suit me so that's a no! I also love the packaging of L'oreal lipsticks as they look so classy with the gold casing!

The Dark and Vampy Red - Rimmel Kate Moss lipstick 107
I can't believe how late I am on the bandwagon for this lipstick, I'm sure you've heard all about this lipstick. It's such a gorgeous vampy lip shade, perfect for autumn and winter (although autumn has kind of passes - told you I was late on this lipstick!) This lipstick is from Kate Moss's Matte lipstick range, I expected this to be a bit drying but it totally isn't! It applies smoothly and lasts a very long time, this is an amazing lipstick range ( I featured this in my recent post as well!)
 
As you can see, there are many different shades of red lipsticks to wear. In fact, there are probably more but I don't have any other red lipsticks. I hope you enjoyed this post and thank you for reading!
