The Red Lip

Now we're into the colder months, one of the many things I love is the beautiful red and berry lip shades that creep their way back out. I really do love a darker lip but when I looked in my collection recently, I noticed I didn't actually have that many darker or just general red lip products, so I went on a little spree!

I placed an order with Superdrug taking advantage of their 3 for 2 offer and picked up a few lipsticks from MUA and Makeup Revolution, two of my current favourite brands. You can really pick up some fab quality products without breaking the bank these days and for just £1.00 these lipsticks are fantastic.

From Makeup Revolution I picked up the shades 'Reckless' a true red with blue undertones and '100% Vamp' probably the darkest lipstick I've ever owned but it looks incredible on. From MUA I grabbed 'Shade 1' which is very similar to the Makeup Revolution red, its just slightly lighter. Lastly I picked up one of the MUA Matte shades called 'Wild Berry' which is strangely a lot less pigmented than the others, which was a little surprising, it's also a lot more pink toned than it looks in the bullet!

I love each and every one of these lipsticks and I can't wait to wear them more throughout the upcoming months, especially 100% Vamp! These lipsticks may only be £1.00 but they are fantastic quality with a lovely formula that isn't at all drying, not even the Matte lipstick, although as said before this one is a little less pigmented than the others.

Do you have any of these in your collection?
