“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 ✨💋
Basically I have 9 red lipsticks and 2 red lip liners. But only few of them catch my attention 😻
- Colourpop Bichette : deep red wine, matte finish
- ELF matte lip color, Wine
- ELF matte lip color, Cranberry
- NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil, Cruella
- GoldenRose Velvet Matte, 19
- Jordana Matte, 10 Red
- Revlon Super Lustrous, Kiss Me Coral
- Gerard Cosmetics, Fire Engine
- 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
- THE BEST PACKAGING
This goes to Gerard Cosmetics lipstick for sure 🙂 I love it because it looks like a bullet from the outside, looks like an expensive gold bullet I mean!
- GREAT COLOR PAYOFF
I have no idea which one wins BUT Colourpop Bichette and NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil deserve it, I think!
- BAD COLOR PAYOFF
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 😉 One swatch is not enough, you will need to reapply more to have its color! 😻
- THE MOST LONG-WEARING
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?
- PERFECT FOR TRAVELLING
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 😅 because I sharpen it a lot! Will I repurchase? Totally YES. If I have extra pocket money 😜
