Seeing how much you guys loved the side by side mascara comparison post last week, and how many of you said it was super helpful, I decided to do another side by side comparison post. This time, it’s also something that I’m highly passionate about, red lipstick!
If you’ve been reading my blog for a while now, you know I’m all about red lips. Yesterday I caught spring cleaning fever and got rid of a few lippies. As always, the dominating shade that was left was, without a doubt, red! Personally, I feel red pouty lips are sophisticated, fun and sultry at the same time. Red lips can definitely finish off any outfit in the most elegant of ways. Whether with a gown or a pair of jeans & T, a red pout works with it all!
Without further ado, here’s the lipsticks (and lip glosses) side by side.
The Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick has a beautiful color and finish. Your lips will look exactly like a rich deep red rose. Unfortunately though, it can’t seem to stay put on my lips. It bleeds a lot and doesn’t last that long.
The Nars Velvet Matte lip pencil in the shade Cruella is by far the easiest shade to wear. The pencil makes it so easy to apply on the go… No lip pencil needed. It’s a two in one kinda product… Very convenient.
The Buxom Lip Cream in Sangria is a nice everyday red, as it is less opaque and more sheen. I’ve talked all about these Buxom Lip Creams that tingles and make your lips look bigger here.
The Covergirl Colorlicious lipgloss in the shade “Live Love Lava” is a bold shimmering extremely glossy lipgloss. It has these little blue specs that gives the lip gloss berry undertones, which makes your teeth appear whiter. I’m not a huge fan of the sticky feeling, but I like to dab a little over a matte lipstick to make it glossy.
The Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick in the shade Adora is the most unusual & fun red I own. I got it a while back in this Christmas nail & lip kit, and I’ve been loving it ever since. Same beautiful texture of the other Kat Von D lipsticks, this orangey red has tiny golden specs which makes it so unique. The pictures don’t do it justice frankly.
I saved my best, or favorite, for last. It’s the Marc Jacobs Le Marc Lip Creme in the shade “Dashing”. This is far and away my most loved and used red lipstick. The color is so rich and nothing beats the formula of Le Marc Lip Creme. It lasts so long, even through a big meal! This shade was part of the holiday collection that I got in November, but it’s also sold separately.
Are you as big a fan as me of a red lipstick? What’s your favorite red lipstick / pencil / gloss?
