“Perfect Red Lipstick” Tag

“Perfect Red Lipstick” Tag

“When in doubt, wear red lipstick”

Hello everyone, thanks for dropping by. I appreciate it a lot 😘 For the past few years I have been claiming I’m not that into red lipsticks. But myself finally disagreeing with it and I’m slowly believing I may be a hoarder for these things.

So today I’ll be doing a “Perfect Red Lipstick” Tag. The categories include, BEST PACKAGING, GREAT COLOR PAYOFF, BAD COLOR PAYOFF, THE MOST LONG-WEARING, & PERFECT FOR TRAVELLING. 

You’re all invited to do this tag! Just copy-paste all of these categories and feel free to blog/post about it. I’ll be so glad to read your opinion! ☺️

First & foremost, I’ll be showing you my red lipstick collection and deciding which one is the best!! Hope this post will help you later in finding your favourite red lipstick βœ¨πŸ’‹ 
Basically I have 9 red lipsticks and 2 red lip liners. But only few of them catch my attention 😻

From left to right,

  1. Colourpop Bichette : deep red wine, matte finish
  2. ELF matte lip color, Wine
  3. ELF matte lip color, Cranberry
  4. NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil, Cruella
  5. GoldenRose Velvet Matte, 19
  6. Jordana Matte, 10 Red
  7. Revlon Super Lustrous, Kiss Me Coral
  8. Gerard Cosmetics, Fire Engine
  9. Lorac Alter Ego, Dominatrix

Next I’ll be showing you the swatches, 


Look at those beautiful reds. They are amazing. 

So let’s move on to each category


This goes to Gerard Cosmetics lipstick for sure πŸ™‚ I love it because it looks like a bullet from the outside, looks like an expensive gold bullet I mean!



I have no idea which one wins BUT Colourpop Bichette and NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil deserve it, I think!

Look at how pigmented they are!! With only one swatch! I’m impressed 



Although it’s expensive & has such great packaging, I’m not 100% satisfied with it 😟 The shade is so gorgeous but less pigmented! Overall, it’s not bad at all. It might not be pigmented but buildable πŸ˜‰ One swatch is not enough, you will need to reapply more to have its color! 😻


Goes to NARS & Colourpop (again!), LORAC, Golden Rose Velvet Matte Lipstick 😻 – Most probably because they are matte & pigmented, so they dont take off easily. But if you drink/eat, they’ll transfer a bit! Every lipstick does this thing I guess?


Surely goes to NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil! Why? Because it’s the thinnest & shortest one among all. Very convenient for travelling. Plus the shade is more wearable (to me. regardless of what eyeshadow/blusher I put on my face!

Overall, I can say NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil is my top fav! 😭 As you can see in the photo, it’s getting shorter and shorter πŸ˜… because I sharpen it a lot! Will I repurchase? Totally YES. If I have extra pocket money 😜
