I bought my first red lipstick in 2004, a beautiful one from Chanel. Now… I know you’re supposed to throw it away after 18 months (it says so on the bottom), but I may still have it… 🙂
I love it so, so much. The smell, the look, the feeling of it on my lips…
Chanel #49, Sweet Sixteen.
It is a little darker than what it looks like on me. When I bought it I thought it was such a huge deal because it was super dark red… Yeah, things have changed since then 😉
The second red lipstick I bought was also from Chanel.
Chanel # 26, Matador.
This one is super red, and it does sparkle a tiny bit. I just love the smell of this one, and it’s the smoothest thing I have ever felt on my lips! The only downside with this is the need for a lipliner, it does smudge without one.
Two things that are great with this one is 1) your lips look a bit bigger, and 2) if you have a warmer shade on your teeth, they will look whiter!
The red one I use the most is this next one from Dior. Dior #578, Diorkiss.
The above photo of it is is pretty close to the exact shade of it, then it is a bit paler on the lips. It can look a bit pink (as you can see below).
I like how this one feels like a lipbalm. It’s so gorgeous on. But the downside is that it doesn’t just feel like a lipbalm, it does act a bit like one. You have to put more on all the time… With the price for it, and how much you actually have to use, not really sure it’s worth it. But then again… it does feel amazing on the lips!
Then we have the cheapest of them all, a matte lipstick crayon from Primark.
I have never had this shade of red before, so for about 4 euros, I had to try it. I’m still not sure how I like the feel of it, but it is super easy to apply. It smeels a bit like vanilla, a bit sweet, it’s lovely actually!
Since this is one of the shades that you always see on TV when someone is super sexy, like in all the classics, I tried to do a super sexy face. Yeah, being sexy isn’t really in my repertoar 😛 So you get these, I like these photos better!
And the last one, the latest one, the Clinique one!
Clinique #05 Graffiti Pop.
What I love most about the Pop lipsticks is how easy they are to apply. And that they stay. You put it on in the morning, and maybe, just maybe, you need to put on some more during the afternoon. I just love it!
When looking at it, there is a hint of purple in it. It doesn’t show on the lips, except for on photos, of course 🙂
I dont know why the purple come out like that in photos, but when you see me with it, it looks like the red that it is 🙂
I love Clinique because everything is scent free, I can get really bad migranes from make up, so I know I don’t have to try everything from Clinique before I buy it, I can just get it.
Their quality is amazing, and it last for a really long time, so worth the money!
The next lipstick post will be purple. I have Estée Lauder, Clinique and Primark in purple. They are all unbelieveable. I wish I had started with purple lipstick of these shades (darker) a long time ago!
I’m not sure if I will have time to post that one in the middle of the week, it may have to be on saturday, they 18th. We’ll see.
What’s your favourite brand when buying lipsticks? And why?
