Valentines Day Reds

February 12, 2016


Valentines Day is nearly upon us and whether you are going out for a fancy date, expecting red roses and the whole shebang or whether you are just planning on having a Netflix binge session with your cat... I suggest rocking a red lip and looking like a bombshell while doing it! Personally I will probably be vlogging in my pjs and doing the laundry... BUT I will be rocking a red lip :P

I love a red lip and often go for orange toned reds, but today I am pointing out a few cooler toned more classic reds that make you look and feel super sexy (yep, sometimes you want to look sexy even if you are just watching Netflix) and they make your teeth appear whiter (perfect for that fancy date).

l-r: Pixi, NARS, Cover Girl, MAC, Chi Chi

If you like a more hydrating and a slightly sheerer red then check out the Pixi Mattelustre Lipstick in Raspberry Blush. This is a very comfortable lipstick and this raspberry shade provides a sheer pinky red lip that you can build up to a more opaque finish. This is a great starting point if you find reds too intense and scary to wear. You can buy Pixi from Sephora in Australia or the Pixi website.

If you aren't scared to go bold and you aren't scared to invest a bit of money in the perfect red lipstick that really packs a punch then I highly recommend the NARS Audacious Lipstick in Rita. This is a perfect true (slightly blue toned) classic red that has crazy pigmentation and lasts a long time on the lips. These aren't matte so they don't dry out the lips. I purchase my NARS products from Mecca.

If you like a lipstick with a bit of sheen then I suggest the Covergirl Outlast Longwear and Moisture Lipstick in Plum Fury. This is a beautiful lipstick that gives a shimmery ruby finish to the lips and is very comfortable and hydrating. This isn't as opaque in colour as some of the other lipsticks but it has a beautiful finish and is very affordable. You can buy this from Priceline.

A classic matte deep red lip is MAC's Russian Red. The MAC matte lipstick formula is beautiful because it feels creamy, gives a matte appearance and also lasts a long time on the lips. You can buy this from MAC Cosmetics.

For a more affordable and brighter matte lipstick, Chi Chi Viva La Diva Lipstick in Countess is perfect! This is a true matte lipstick that is super bright, super long lasting and very flattering. This is perfect if you aren't scared to rock a bright eye catching red. You can buy these online at the Chi Chi website or at Target or Myer.

Happy Valentines Day to everyone! Don't forget to buy yourself a present and drop that diet for a day.
