Hope you all had a lovely weekend! I wanted to see The Hobbit but had so much stuff to do so I might catch a late night show this week. I’m kinda sad it’s all ending though.
So for the last two months, I’ve really really been loving sheer red lipsticks. I don’t know what it is I always go through these phases where I have my usual chunk of nudes and bolds that I wear but on the side I have something else going on (lipstick wise).
These are some of the lipsticks I’ve been loving and I thought I’ve give you a peek into my sheer red lip stash!
The Handbag Friendly One
I love pulling this out of my bag and applying it on the go for no reason other than it being shaped like a crayon and very moisturising. Clinique Chubby Stick in Chunky Cherry has a sheen but it’s not very glossy, it has a balm like quality to it. It’s also one I can apply without a mirror. Isn’t the pinky red colour gorgeous though? You’re going to hear “pinky red” a lot in this post.
Slap and Go : More Colour
This shade is an absolute beauty. I love my Revlon Lip Butter in Wild Watermelon for the winters. I also don’t need a long wearing lipstick every time I step out of the house. If I’m just going out for a bit, this quickly gives ample colour and brightens the face.
Slap and Go : More Comfort
Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Boheme is a recent purchase but I loving it so far. It gives a very sheer wash of pinky red colour but it makes your lips appear so smooth and glossy. It also feels a bit heavier than the lip butter (in a good way) and more moisturising.
Something More Substantial
This is definitely one for the evenings. Lakme Absolute Gloss Addict in Red Delight* is a fairly pigmented glossy red. It’s so lightweight and the colour can be played up or down.
When Shimmer Is A Requirement
A really good holiday red lip gloss is the Guerlain Gloss D’enfer Maxi Shine Intense Colour & Shine Lip Gloss in Red Pow. If the name doesn’t impress you, let me tell you these are really lightweight lip glosses with absolutely no sticky factor. It’s a bright red with fine gold shimmer running through it and overall effect is very subtle and gorgeous! Can be layered sheer or opaque.
Ok I cheated with a gloss but it’s sheer and pretty! Let me know your favourite sheer reds!
