5 Shades of Red

After the whole fuzz about 50 Shades of Grey movie (which I still haven’t watched and don’t plan on watching any time soon!), come my top 5 shades of red lipstick! Check out my guide on how to style your lips with the colour of passion. First off with the classic lipsticks! When you’re going out pick a more passionate look with deep, burning red. Those that I’m using are Rimmel 850 Rouge (similar here) and a little bit lighter version by BeYu in 384 Ruby Drop. Both lipsticks have a great moisturising texture, hydrating the lips for a long time, also giving them a shiny touch. The one by BeYu lasts longer than the Rimmel one, even though both are pretty durable. If those are too spicy for you and you’re more a natural looking kinda gal, go for a dark pinkish shade like Golden Rose Velvet Matte 02* that I have. This one as you already guessed is a matte lipstick, which makes it great for a more natural day look! You can read the full review of that product here. The last two are pencil lipsticks in darker shades. The Miss Sporty Instant Lip Colour & Shine Plum Twist 02 looks purple on the photo but on my lips it’s more of a dark vampy red, definitely a great colour for a formal event! Whereas, Avene’s Couvrance Duo Lip and Lip Contour* I use more during the day since its colour is more natural and keeps my lips hydrated. You can check out my full review on that great lipstick (which also has its own lip liner!) here. Which is your favourite shade of red?

I love red lipsticks so much, I am always so wary when it comes to Miss Sporty I don't think I have bought it since I was 13 and sneaking it on my face so my mum wouldn't find out haha but I shall give it a try
