SPOTLIGHT: 2nd Quarter Fave LOTD's, Reds...

My love affair with red lipsticks seems to be growing by the day - I find them irresistible in any season, but particularly during the gloomy wet months of Winter, when a splash of vermillion can lift my spirits and transform my mood in a matter of seconds. I'm convinced that the "right" red is out there for every gal, it's just a matter of finding it. Below are eight of the ones that are particularly dear to my heart...

These two are very similar, but the Maybelline Colourblur has the edge - it was a fave in the 1st Quarter collection because it's SO comfortable to wear, and if you're after a true matte lip colour, this range will definitely deliver the goods...

The Maybelline Bold Matte MAT6 also earned a place in the previous set, but how about that NYC Retro Red? It was a gift from my darling friend Amy all the way from Canada - such a fabulously vibrant warm red, and very close to being my HG ...

Love both of the above because of their pretty-as pink content - I keep going back to the Rubi Ruby Red because of its truly gorgeous hue and moisturising power. Rubi lipsticks are cheap as chips too ...

And I couldn't leave out these last two - both DB Cosmetics and Chi Chi make beautiful lip slickers in a wide range stunning shades, plus they keep my pucker soft and supple...

Next up will be Berries & Purples!

Would love to know what your favourite red lipstick is 

Take care of you,

  1. You pull off every colour, as usual! I see the NYC one is good at not accentuating lip lines. I really like the colours of the Red Dawn and Currant Kiss on you! I can't pull off reds, the closest I could do would be a very sheer berry tone. Hugs from Canada! xo

    1. Hugs back at you Amy ♥ I just LOVE the NYC red! Reckon you just haven't found YOUR red yet - took me till I was around 55 to get into this colour lol, I wasn't brave enough till then xxx

  2. A red lip is a great way to instantly brighten up the day! I am loving every single one of these red shades on you ♡

    1. Yay for red lippy sweetie! Thanks for your lovely comment - some are definitely better than others, but these days I just can't help myself lol ♥♥♥
