best red lipsticks


As V-day is fast approaching I thought I'd do a red lips look using my favourite red shade. Bang has been my go-to red for a while because of it's punchy orange undertone which compliments my warmer skin tone. I've lined by lips with the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide on Lip Pencil in Bang to give them a nice strong shape before adding a slick of the Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in Bang.  I adore that these two Urban Decay products are two are a complimenting lip pencil and lipstick duo which is perfect.

With red lipstick - there isn't one shade to suit everyone. It really is worth that little bit of effort to try different shades to find your perfect red. Red lips are bold, sexy and super glamorous. A punchy red can make you feel more confident and dare I say it… sexy… So do it - Go forth and try red lipstick. If this peachy pink girl can be converted then so can you!

While red isn't the most kissing appropriate colour - Red is THE Valentines day colour. Plus having a good red in your collection is a must - a great all year rounder too.

  32. I like the look of thsoe UD lipsticks, I've always wanted to try one! You look great in a glossy red, I can't seem to pull them off because my lips are pretty big, so matte formulas are more flattering on me :)

  35. Wearing red is my go-to to make myself feel instantly sexier. It's taken a while to find my perfect shade, but once I landed on MY just-right, matte deep red with blue undertones, I was hooked. I've only recently turned to the gospel of lip liner below my red and couldn't be happier with the results! I haven't tried out any of the Urban Decay lip products, I'll have to check them out!

  36. I wish I could pull off yellow/orange toned red lips, I'm such a big fan of them on others (like you). Unfortunately I'm more of a blue tone person.
