Although I have a penchant for dark berry lips, this doesn’t mean that all the red shades I own get banished to the back of the cupboard. Yes, they don’t get much wear in comparison to some of my fav wine coloured selections, but that being said I do find myself reaching for these bold lips on more than one occasion. For most, choosing between their top red lipsticks is a deliberation that can leave them pondering and debating over which ones make the cut. Instead I have three that sit pride of place, they are a solid bunch ranging from the more orange toned red through to that classic pillar box selection. All fantastic formulas they last throughout the day ensuring you don’t end up with that tell tale faded red line around your lips.

Budget from L’Oreal – secret, this is actually my fav red lippy of the lot and is the one I reach for the most! Part of the Colour Riche Range their Exclusive Pure Red in Julianne’s Pure Red is a real beaut. Something about it’s slight orange undertones and blendable formula not only makes application a breeze, I find it the most wearable shade out of the bunch.

Glamour from Giorgio Armani – if you are looking for a true indulgent piece, look no further than this Giorgio Armani purchase. Their Rouge d’Armani Lipstick in the shade 400 is luxury personified with sleek black packaging and magnetic closure, you even get the logo embossed on the lipstick bullet itself. Formula wise, its a tad more drying in comparison however this classic tone suits a multitude of complexions.

Long Lasting Colour from Kat Von D – for long lasting coverage it has to be this Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Outlaw. Although liquid in application this drys to a matte finish that sticks around all day (and throughout a three course dinner). The most drying of the bunch I recommend an intensive balm before application to keep those lips in tip top shape but rest assured with this bold lip and won’t be budging anywhere.

  • I love the look of all three of these, think my favourite has to MAC’s ruby woo though!

  • All three look lovely on you! Red is definitely your color :-)

  • I initially preferred the L’Oreal one on you too! It goes to show how budget brands can often do the trick ;) They do all suit you though, you are very lucky to be able to wear such bright colours so easily :)

    Amanda –

  • Love the formula of the KVD Liquid lipsticks, it’s a little bit drying but it lasts forever on my lips.

  • All of them are beautiful! I’m a big fan of matte red lips :)

  • Julianne’s Pure Red has become a staple in my collection since it was released in America. I kind of like it a little bit more than Ruby Woo even, and that’s saying a lot for me. I just like that it’s a bit brighter. I do want to try KVD’s Outlaw because I have her liquid lipstick in Berlin and love it so much!
