A classic red lip

Honestly who doesn't love a red lip? There is something so special about how something so simple can just completely transform your whole look. I've been thinking long and hard and have managed to decide my top 5 favourites. 

Mac Cherry Lip Liner - This is a beautiful blue toned red lipliner that can be worn all over the lips and DOES NOT BUDGE. 

Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipstick 03 - A nice cheap alternative to Mac but with the same high quality. This is a beautiful orange tone and honestly has some extremely impressive lasting power.

Mac RiRi Woo / Ruby Woo - Who doesn't own this lipstick? It's a classic and for good reason! It's the perfect shade to suit all skin tones and is incredibly long lasting. Yes it is slightly drying as it is part of the Retro Matte range but pop a bit of lip primer on first or a little bit of lip balm and it glides like a dream. 

Mac Viva Glam Miley Cyrus 2 - This was a limited edition shade but it's practically identical to Lady Danger so if you like a more orange tone red this is for you. It's a matte so is very long lasting but not drying like some mattes can be.

Mac Toxic Tale - Unfortunately this is a limited edition one which breaks my heart! It's a perfect coral red. I've had to refrain from wearing this as often as I want to so it don't run out.. PLEASE MAC BRING THIS BACK!!!

  4. Rocking all these red lipsticks like the beautiful bombshell you are gorgeous babe! Hearting Toxic Tale so much, it's such a shame it's limited edition. I really hope they bring out a similar shade in the future as it's too gorge :) I don't wear much red lipstick as I don't think it suits me too well but you've definitely inspired me to give it another go ;) <3
