The best of the reds in 2015




Nothing says 'I mean business' like a good-strong red lipstick. I really like a red lip, and managed to try and test many throughout 2015, but these are my four favourites in sightly differing red shades.

1. MAC matte lipstick in Diva
This is a really matte lipstick, so before you even go there, you need to moisturise, moisturise, moisturise your lips or it will look very drying and flakey! After that, the lasting power is second to none, in fact you need a lot of makeup remover to get this off. The colour is a very deep wine shade, and one of the best vampy colours on the market at the moment. Being MAC this lipstick retails for around £15, but last for a long time, I'm no where near finishing this lipstick yet and I've had it for around a year!
 
2. Collection long lasting colour lipstick in Mango Crush 
This red is a far more coral, orange red shade. It's a really shocking red, but looks great with sun kissed skin. The staying power isn't anything compared to the MAC lipstick, but for £2.99, who's going to complain. There are a number of great shades in the Collection lipsticks range, but this coral-red in Mango Crush is one of the most versatile reds around.
 
3. Rimmel Kate lipstick in Shade 1 
There was a lot of hype over the Kate Rimmel lipsticks when they launched quite some time ago now. The product is moisturising on the lips, leaves a nice finish, not too shiny, not too matte and lasts for a few glasses of wine before re-application is needed. It was around £5 when I purchased this, and from the shades in the original Kate collection, this is one of the best. The colour is a blue tone red, not as deep or vampy as the MAC lipstick, but a little sexier than the Collection Mango Crush.

4. Clinique Pop Lip in Cherry Pop
Possibly my favourite collection of lipsticks ever. The Clinique Pop Lip collection was so fun and Cherry Pop is one of my favourites. It's a completely classic red, slightly blue toned. It's ultra moisturising and very versatile if you want a subtle lip stain or a full on colour pop. At £16 it's the most expensive of my favourite reds and although I wouldn't pay this for all of the shades in the Pop Lip range, the Cherry Pop is definitely a winner!
