SPOTLIGHT: First Quarter Fave LOTD's, Reds...

Ahhh red lipstick - so many fabulous variations in the market, and here's just a few of my treasures, both warm and cool tones. Hard to believe I hardly EVER wore red lipstick in my younger days (before I turned 50 lol) - thought it was too much, too flashy, and yet I didn't hesitate to slick on some purple or hot pink. Weird huh? It just goes to show how one's tastes (and perceptions) can change, as well as one's wardrobe - these days mine is probably 20% red, and I put together an outfit in this sassy hue almost every week...
David Jones Moisture Cream Lipstick - Teracotta
Chi Chi Viva La Diva Lipstick - Countess
Milani Lipstick - Cherry Crave
DB Colour Kisses Lipstick - Deep Red
Maybelline ColourBlur Pencil - Partner in Crimson
MBA Lipstick - Red Hot! 
Rubi Lipstick - Ruby Red
Maybelline Bold Matte Lipstick - MAT6

It never ceases to amaze me how a slick of red lippy can transform my mood, as well as my appearance - mind you I rarely wear it unless I've also slapped on the full monty face as well, but there's been days when I've left the house with only a fiery pout plus my sunnies, and I didn't have a care in the world. I reckon with red lips, you can get away with almost anything lol 

In case you missed them, you'll find nudes, bricks and bronzes HERE, and  corals, mauves & pinks HERE

Do you have a red lipstick in your kit that always makes you feel glam and confident?

Take care of you,
kats xxx

  1. What a gorgeous selection of reds! I think the Chi Chi Viva La Diva Lipstick in Countess looks best on you, but they all look stunning. I'm more of a purple lover at the moment, but putting on a red lipstick always makes me feel sassy.

    1. Delighted you like the selection Rams - that Maybelline red sure is super potent, and I like it because it's not very matte at all, and therefore more flattering on my old pucker lol xxx

    1. Aww thanks Amy - I adore nudes, truly I do, but there's very few that suit me, possibly because I wear such bold coloured clothing. Gosh we're all so different hey, but that's what makes life interesting xxx
