Many women don’t have the confidence to wear a red lippy: some think they’re far too bright, while others would rather stick to a safer option. But, a good red lipstick can easily transform your look and give you that extra va va voom!
Here are the five red lipsticks that I think stand out above all the rest (well, above the one’s I have tried anyways!):
Rimmel Moisture Renew Red Alert
This affordable red lipstick is definitely a must-try. Not only does it instantly add glamour to your look, but it also keeps your lips pretty moisturised – it really is a great steal for the money! PRICE: €6.99, Boots
Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture
If you want to treat yourself to something special, then this is red lippy will do the trick. It’s intense, seductive and passionate – it basically has everything a red lipstick should have! PRICE: €33.00, Debenhams
No 7 Love Red
If you like a vibrant red with a long lasting finish, then No7 Love Red would be worth a try. It has a slightly matte finish so it stays put even after a few glasses of wine! PRICE: €12.75, Boots
NARS Jungle Red
I don’t think I’ve ever come across someone with a bad review of this product. This semi matte lippy is pretty easy to apply and it also has everlasting power – perfect for the 50’s pinup look. PRICE: €26.00, Nars Cosmetics
Ruby Woo by MAC
This will always be my number red lipstick. I genuinely think it’s one of those shades that suits the majority of skin tones! Have a look at the full review of this lipstick here.
