Autumnal Lips // 3 True Reds




Hi gorgeous! Today, while listening to Gossip Girl, I wanted to share my 3 favourite true reds. I love wearing red on the lips - especially bright true reds. These have 3 different finishes which I love as I can pick the one I am in the mood for. One is matte, one is glossy and the last has a velvet touch. 

The first one is the Matte Lip Color in Rich Red from ELF - I just got this one a couple of days ago and I love it already! The price is pretty awesome too, only £3.75 aaaand I got it at 50 % off! It is superb easy to apply and very precise because of the thin tip it is easy to get into every corner. It is very creamy when you apply it but it dries matte and stays put. Right now I am drinking a cuppa and it only stains a bit on my beloved Starbucks mug. 

When the Apocalips first came out, I went to Matas and bought almost every single colour and I am so glad I did, I just love these and will definitely pick some of the new shades! This one was not available here so I was very happy when I won it via Twitter. The Rimmel Apocalips in Big Bang is a beautiful bright red! The apocalips are very pigmented and wear really well. I wear one of the shades basically everyday - but this one is beautiful with a winged eyeliner look which is one look I will be rocking, trying to rock this season.

This one was my first red red lipstick. This GOSH Velvet Touch Lipstick in Lambana is just lovely. The velvet touch makes it easy to apply, it moisturises and it is pigmented. When I want to use this for an everyday look I usually just dap it on and it leaves a perfect fresh-lips-stain. I am very glad that this was my first red-y as it made me want more ;) 

Bright red lips goes with every season but I think it is especially beautiful for Autumn and Winter - and Christmas, obviously! If you want some pictures of me wearing these, I will definitely put some up (Tried to take some but they didn't come out as great as I imagined)

Are you going to pick up some of the new Apocalips shades?

What is your favourite bright red lipstick? I need to know - a girl can never have too many red lipsticks! 


Lots of love

  2. Picturrrrrres :D The last one looks SO bright, is it as vibrant in real life? If it is I'm not sure if I would wear it although I adore my reds. I love wearing red lipstick and I love the looks I get, half appreciating half incredulous, hihi.

  3. I have both the ELF and Rimmel products and really love them. Very pretty reds. And I didn't expect to love the Matte Lip color but for the price very good.

  4. That Gosh colour is stunning. I've always overlooked Gosh to be honest, but maybe I need to give it a little more credit! x
