My Red Lips Collection with swatches

My Red Lips Collection

Can you get enough of red lipsticks? I cannot! I wish I could wear them all the time. Red lips can jazz up any look in just seconds. I have collected quite a few red-ish lip products over the year, so here's a little breakdown of each and their swatches.

My Red Lips Collection

MAC MATTE LIPSTICK IN 'RUBY WOO'
Does Ruby Woo even need any introduction? From celebrities to makeup gurus, everybody raves about it! It is a classic matte red lip colour with pink undertones. The matte is quite drying though and does drag on the lips. I personally love to mix it with my other fave reds to get the perfect finish and colour. You can read a full review on Ruby Woo here.

SMASHBOX BE LEGENDARY MATTE LIPSTICK IN 'INFRARED'
This is my new fave! The shade is very similar to Ruby Woo, a bright cool-toned red but the finish is more semi-matte, making it more comfortable on the lips. 

NYX MATTE LIPSTICK IN 'ALABAMA'
Alabama is ideal for Autumn/Winter! It is a deep brick-red shade with a matte finish. This one is also pretty comfortable to wear and has amazing pigmentation. It does last quite a long time as well.

ASTOR HEIDI KLUM COLOR LAST LIPSTICK IN 'HOT LADY 007'
Hot Lady is a warm deep red, again a perfect Autumn/Winter colour. The formula is very creamy with a slightly glossy finish. Click here for full review!

ASTOR HEIDI KLUM COLOR LAST LIPSTICK IN 'SEXY 006'
This has the same formula as above, the same shiny finish, super easy to apply and keeps lips hydrated. Sexy 007 is a true tomato-red, if you are not for cool-toned red lips this shade is ideal for you. This has also been reviewed in-depth here.

NYX ROUND LIPSTICK IN 'CHIC RED'
This was my first ever red lipstick (read review). Pretty good for starting out, since it is not a very bright, in-the-face red. It is a beautiful semi-matte pinkish-red which would suit pretty much all skin tones.

MAX FACTOR GIANT LIP PENCIL IN 'HOT MERLOT'
Although this one has swatched pretty well, I am not such of fan of it. Hot Merlot is a deep burgundy glossy lipstick but unfortunately it applies very patchily on the lips and is a pain to touch up; the application is very uneven.

ASTOR SOFT SENSATION LIPCOLOR BUTTER IN '15 CHEEKY CHERRY'
I love the Astor Lipcolor Butters. You can read me going gaga over them here and here. They are delightfully moisturising and great for on-the-go application. Cheeky Cherry is a subtle pinkish red lip butter and if you are scared of loud red lips, this is where you should start.

ASTOR PERFECT STAY LIPGLOSS IN LOVE APPEAL
Alone Love Appeal appears more like corally red but applied on top of a red lipstick it just takes it on another level. If you are one for a super glossy red pout, this is for you! Even alone it is super pigmented, not sticky and lasts for an hour.

W7 MEGA MATTE LIPS IN 'HASTA LA VISTA'
Another favourite from this collection is this orange-red Hasta La Vista. I am all for liquid lipsticks. Love how elegant and immaculate they look! The whole W7 Mega Matte Lip range has been reviewed here. Hasta La Vista looks stunning on the lips. Not your classic red or orange, just a perfect mix of the two!
