‘SHOCKING REVELATION’ POWDER KISS LIPSTICK by MAC
Shocking Revelation by MAC is by far my favourite red lipstick that I’ve ever tried. Paired with Charlotte Tilbury’s Walk Of No Shame lip pencil, this is my fail-safe combination for nights out. With a comfortable demi-matte texture, it never leaves your lips feeling or looking dry. In fact, it has the slightest of sheens. I particularly love how the colour has an element of brightness to it. It’s a real head-turner.
‘THAT’S WHY SHE’S LATE’ MATTE SUEDE LIPSTICK by Patrick Ta
For me, a blue red lipstick is always my favourite, and while Shocking Revelation is my no. 1 pick, sometimes I want a tone which is ever-so-slightly deeper. For this circumstance, I go straight to Patrick Ta’s Matte Suede Lipstick in the shade That’s Why She’s Late. It has a more sultry vibe than Shocking Revelation and is a perfect red lip for the autumn and winter months.
‘EL CINCO DE MAYO’ POWER BULLET MATTE LIPSTICK by Huda Beauty
Brighter than That’s Why She’s Late and ever so slightly warmer than Shocking Revelation, we have El Cinco de Mayo by Huda Beauty. As another matte blue-red lipstick, El Cinco de Mayo has a formula which glides onto your lips with a serious amount of pigmentation. It’s the perfect statement blue-red lippie for summer.
‘WALK OF NO SHAME’ MATTE REVOLUTION LIPSTICK by Charlotte Tilbury
Red lipstick is a statement, and sometimes we all prefer to be a bit more subtle. In comes Walk Of No Shame, one of Charlotte Tilbury’s iconic Matte Revolution lipsticks. With a brownness to its tone, Walk Of No Shame is a beautiful alternative red lipstick to the likes of the bright and bold aforementioned recommendations. It’s one of my all-time favourite lipsticks – plus, it has a matching lip liner. You really can’t go wrong with this one.
‘TURBO’ by NARS
Matte lipsticks last longer, but sometimes we all crave the comfort that a gloss, oil or cream provides. The NARS Afterglow Lip Balms are the perfect tinted product – however, their pigmentation is extremely buildable, and, thanks to this, the stunning vibrant blue-to-cherry red shade named Turbo is a must-have for any red lippie lovers. With the feel of an oil, this formula leaves your lips feeling cushioned with hydration and looking beautifully glossy.
