Lipstick Collection: Red Carpet

Colorburst Balm Stain Romantic//Apocalips Bang Bang//Velvetine Red Velvet//MUA Luxe Lacquer Atomic//E.L.F Lip Stain Crimson Crush//The Body Shop Colour Crush 101//MAC Viva Glam Rhianna//MAC Maleficent True Loves Kiss//The Body Shop 125
Red lips are the ultimate make up accessory for me so it's no wonder that it's my largest colour collection. I try to stick to blue toned blues as they suit me more, but sometimes it's hard to tell what the undertones are!
EDIT: Just spotted the spelling error, sorry!
Revlon Colorburst Balm Stain in Romantic was one of my latest purchases. It has buildable coverage and gives a nice glossy finish, perfect for daytime. 

Apocalips Bang Bang gives a high impact, glossy coverage, perfect for those nights you want your lips to be a statement.

There's just something about the LimeCrime Velvetine in Red Velvet that gives the ultimate red lip. It's bright, it's sharp and it stands out. I love the long lasting finish and I'm more than happy to pay the price.

MUA Velvet Lacquer Atomic is a nice dupe of Red Velvet. It's a lot more plum toned, but dries to a matte finish and lasts a good 2-3 hours without budging.

Another product that won't break the band is the E.L.F Lip Stain in Crimson Crush. As my lips are naturally red it looks really natural but gives my lips a little oomph that lasts all day.

The Body Shop Colour Crush 101 gives a long lasting blue toned look. This is probably the lipstick I wear the most

As soon as I got an email about the launch of the Rhianna collection for MAC, I went on the website and ordered the lipstick as I knew how quickly it would sell out. Fortunately it's being kept on the website, so it's still available! It has a lovely frosted finish that makes your lips really stand out.

Again, as soon as I got the MAC Maleficent email, I ordered the lipstick before it sold out. It's quite a deep red and has a great shine to it. The name of the lipstick "True Loves Kiss" is so fitting to the theme of the movie, which was SO emotional, FYI.

The last lipstick in my collection is The Body Shops Colour Crush in 125. It's a lot darker and slightly red toned that in the photo, making for a killer vamp pout. I probably wear this the least, as I'm so pale I tend to stay away from dark lip colours!

Hopefully you've enjoyed my collection posts! Since I made these I've already bought about 5 more lip products, oops! It's a slight addiction...

    1. I think Romantic is the perfect daytime red, isn't it? Oooh I shall have a peek, who doesn't love a dupe?!
