Best red lipstick of all time

I know I've done a few of these posts before but I still constantly get asked about the shade of lipstick I'm wearing and there is a new entry in my new favourites so today I thought I would give you a little update on my lipstick tray.

(as seen on me clockwise from the left)

Lipstick: MAC Lipstick Matte
Shade: Lady Danger
Price: £15.50
Consistency: matte and I promise you it won't come off for a whole day! l highlight cracked lips.
Why I love it: it's probably my favourite lipstick of all time and the only one I have ever finished and had to re-buy. It's the most durable lipstick I own - I suggest moisturising your lips the night before as otherwise it will highlight cracked lips.


Lipstick: Bobbi Brown Luxe Lip Colour
Shade: Atomic Orange
Price: £25 
Consistency: creamy and moisturising (I like to blot it with a tissue once I applied it to take out a bit of sheen)
Why I love it: the name says it all, it's a super bright yet very wearable shade of orange. Perfect in the summer but also in winter with white knitwear and soft greys.


Lipstick: NARS Velvet Matte Lip
Shade: Red Square
Price: £19
Consistency: Matte but soft
Why I love it: I discovered this shade after Jenna Lyons revealed it to be her favourite shade of orange and I am now addicted to it too. It's a really good red-orange shade and I love the pencil applicator that gives me precise application all the time.


Lipstick: HOURGLASS Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick
Shade: Icon
Price: £23
Consistency: Goes on liquid and shiny but dries super matte almost like a stain
Why I love it: It's the absolute perfect berry lip, I love it in the winter and also you apply it once and never have to worry about it again for the rest of the day, even when drinking and eating.

Bought the Hourglass Icon at the weekend and I think I may finally have found my perfect red! Any tips from stopping it from making my lips feel so dry though?

I always buff my lips a tiny bit with my toothbrush in the morning before applying or just rub them with a hot towel. It also always help to wear lots of lip balm the night before. x
