Beauty / 4 Favourite Red Lipsticks

Larkspur Vintage | Beauty: 4 Favourite Red LipsticksI think it’s clear by now that I love a good red lip. A red lip can really finish of  a look, it works well in all seasons and for more personal reasons, I like that it gives me the appearance of a more pronounced upper lip. Red lips and I have been friends for a long time, so I thought I’d share with you some of my favourite shades of red.
Larkspur Vintage | Beauty: 4 Favourite Red Lipsticks1. Fraise Remix by Bourjois – This colour is the newest addition to my collection, and not necessarily a true red; more of a fruity pink with red undertones and hints of coral. It looks quite matte in the bullet, but when applied comes out a bit frosty. I like how subtle this colour is, and that it actually suits my pale skin tone, unlike other pinky shades.
Larkspur Vintage | Beauty: 4 Favourite Red Lipsticks2. So Chaud by MAC – we all know this is a favourite of mine by now. This creamy matte lipstick in an orange/red shade is the perfect colour for my skin tone and I always feel my best wearing it. It applies so smoothly and I don’t find it to be too drying for a matte lipstick. It has an interesting way of looking quite red in low lighting and more orange in bright lighting.
Larkspur Vintage | Beauty: 4 Favourite Red Lipsticks3. 01 by Kate Moss – This is a classic red shade, and another one I find looks really great on pale skin. It’s a matte lipstick, and is incredibly pigmented. However, I do find it a bit drying and it doesn’t apply very smoothly, but to combat that I just add a little lip balm before application.
Larkspur Vintage | Beauty: 4 Favourite Red Lipsticks4. Dubonnet by MAC – This is a berry red shade that is best suited for the colder seasons as it’s quite a dark and rich colour. It looks matte in the bullet, but I find it comes out rather frosty and glossy on the lips and the application process can be a bit messy at times. Using it with a lip liner is ideal, as it helps to keep things clean looking.

    Wow! You look amazing in all of the shades. The MAC ones look amazing on you – you’re really stunning! And the Kate Moss one is such a nice classic red, you look so sophisticated! The Bourjois one, I’m almost going to have to find for myself when I go to London (no Bourjois where I live). It’s such a lovely shade, and it’s a bit more timid than the rest – great for a day-to-day look. It looks amazing on you! It’s like it was made for you!
    You’re gorgeous. Okay. Bye.

    Am definitely going to have to invest in the So Chaud. As a fellow pale-y I find it difficult to choose the right shade for my skin tone. This is a great post, really useful and you wear ALL the shades so well. Many thanks.
