I love red lipstick. Very much. However, as I’m sure I’ve mentioned before, as a stay at home mum with no social life I very very rarely wear it…so I’m not sure why I have accumulated quite so many. It’s a little excessive I have to admit!

My Red Lipstick Collection

Here are swatches in the same order:

My Red Lipstick Collection

So we have Left to Right: Marks & Spencer Poppy, Revlon True Red, Estee Lauder Pure Colour Gloss Stick Cherry Ice, Lord & Berry Vogue Semi-Matte China Red, Mac Viva Glam Cyndi, Mac Cockney, Mac Hot Tahiti, Clinique High Impact Red-y To Wear, All For Eve Eve Red.

So I have to admit, a couple of them aren’t true reds, Mac Cyndi and Hot Tahiti for example but they are great examples of every day reds, and the Estee Lauder Pure Colour Gloss Stick in Cherry Ice is really red but as it’s a glossy finish, it has a much softer finish and is quite wearable on an average kind of a day.

The M&S Poppy lipstick is my oldest and I bought it a long long time ago for a fancy dress party when I was dressed as Little Red Riding Hood!

Thats a wig by the way!

So anyway, my favourite reds are in no particular order, the Estee Lauder Pure Colour Gloss stick in Cherry Ice:

Mac Cockney:

And lastly the beautiful Clinique Red-y to Wear:

So there we have it! A quick look at my reds collection with a closer look at my favourites!

Are there any reds you think I really need to add to my collection of never-worn red lipsticks? I clearly need more in my life 😉

    Have you tried any of the YSL reds? I was debating one the other day but wasn’t sure.

  2. Charlie says:

    No, I’ve never even tried a YSL lipstick full stop! Other than swatching in store…

    That’s a nice collection you’ve got. I have a lot of things that I don’t wear all the time, but that just means that when it comes time to wear it, you’re set and ready to go.

    Ps. I also love that Little Red is accompanied by a tiny Jedi. 🙂

    This is a great collection – I too love a red, but also never go out, even though my children are teenagers, I think I have lost the art! What I like about your collection is that they seem to have a touch of pink? a bit warm? even though I am cool toned I think too much blue in a red is not flattering. Thanks for the post and the pics Jan x

    Very nice! I like red but don’t have many occasions to wear it. I have Illamasqua Box which is lovely but I discovered you have to be careful not to get it on babies heads! I wear Illamasqua intense lipgloss in Fume when I want a more wearable red. Do you have any red glosses? Love that pic of you as red riding hood by the way :).

  6. I think you really suit the wig – it’s a lovely pic.
    I am in love with my Estee Lauder Apricot Sun – Lovely red and quite striking for me. Nice with a blank canvas of a face and just strong lashes. I feel a blog post coming on lol
