- Top 3 Drugstore Reds...

Despite wearing more pink shades than I usually do, red remains my favourite lip shade. With all of the recent hype around lipsticks from high-end brands, such as MAC, YSL, Tom Ford, Charlotte Tilbury, NARS (the list goes on), I thought I'd remind you of some gems available in the drugstore.

First of all is Revlon's ColorBurst Lip Butter in 035 Candy Apple. These lip butters are known to be super hydrating and make lips feel instantly smoother. I tend to reach for Candy Apple in the daytime as it provides the perfect sheen of colour. This shade is a warmer red and one which I think suits everyone.

Next is Maybelline's Color Drama Lipstick in 510 Red Essential. These lip pencils glide on surprisingly with ease and are impressively long-lasting. Red Essential is more of a 'solid red' shade and provides the perfect pop of colour.

Lastly, the famous Rimmel Kate Matte Lipstick in 107 Red Wine. This seems to be a beauty blogger must-have and I've already used up two. 107 is a cooler shade of red and, as the name suggests, has a matte finish. The colour pigmentation of this is strong, making it perfect for a bolder look.

So, there we have my top three reds! I use all of these products regularly and would definitely recommend they have a place in your collection.

Do you own any of these? What's your favourite drugstore red?

  11. LOVE these shades - that's what is so fun with reds to me - they can go super red, red-orange, or more pinky red. Love them all!!

  19. I own Candy Apple... I love how it's so sheer and hydrating. My fave drugstore reds are from Avon (I know, not drugstore exactly but they are drugstore prices).

  27. To be honest I don't wear read, but that Candy Apply looks like something I would try - the less dramatic red from these all I guess!:)

  34. You're right about 107 - certainly among my favourites:) I've actually found a really bright and long lasting red in the Asda makeup range which I was pleasantly surprised by :')

  35. I love a red lip, sometimes it's all you need to add a touch of glamour to a look! The Kate Moss Rimmel lipsticks are great and I have a bright red from MUA that I really love, it's really moisturising and very purse friendly :) xx

    ReplyDelete
  36. Oooh everything is so pretty, I don't really wear red lipstick but when I do it's my Max Factor one, it's a rich, classic red with a blue undertone to make teeth look whiter or I use a MAC lipliner in colour Cherry I think which is slightly deeper.

    Love these too though so will definitely have a little look next time I go shopping! :)

  39. Hello Karen! How are you doing? Just read your latest post. I don't really wear lip stick, lip balm from The Body Shop it is mostly. Well anyway, I wanted to comment and I know this is kind of a random comment I didn't want to stop by and not say hello. I think the Revlon one would be my pick as it tends to be a more orange-y red. I like it that you mixed up your products and not just picked lipstick. Needless to say your pics are wonderful to look at as usual. Hope to speak soon xxxx

  47. Love the 107 :) I've also got the Kate Moss in 111 Kiss of Life and it's the PERFECT true red I think. I use 107 more as a berry tone, layered up til it's good and dark! :) xx

  49. I am always so nervous of a full on red lip - not sure why! I do have the Rimmel Kate one which I love but only tend to wear it on evenings out. I definitely need to be more adventurous with reds :) x
