What’s Your Red?

By Coco

The pop of colour and statement a red lip makes is one that simply cannot be ignored. I have been searching for some time now for my perfect red and alas, I have found it! With fall on our minds and in our forever changing ensembles, we asked a few of our friends what their favourite reds were. Having different skin tones, it is no surprise that we all landed on different parts of the red spectrum.

Here are our favourite reds:

1. Dragon Girl by Nars

Catriona red
Dragon Girl by Nars is my favourite red because it has incredible pigment that pops like no other. I only wear matte reds and this one is rare as it doesn’t leave you with that awful dry feeling. It’s actually quite moisturizing.

2. Red Revolution by Maybelline

Eva Red

Red Revolution by Maybelline is my favourite because it has a very rich and glossy finish that I love. It is so easy to apply and a lipstick that I don’t need to wear a liner with, although I totally could.

3. Cruella by Nars

Ana Red

I have a pretty solid rotation of red lipsticks and up until last year, MAC “Russian Red” was my favourite. When I got this Cruella by Nars in my Sephora gift bag last year, I instantly fell in love and now it’s my go-to red. I am a huge fan of NARS and I like the pencil application. It’s like my lipstick and lipliner in one!

Russian Red by Mac is one I especially love because it is wearable all year round. I have been on the hunt for the perfect red and this is it! It makes a statement, and is to me a true deep red that is perfectly matte.

On Fire Red by Maybelline is my favourite because I love a red that pops. It’s moisturizing and adds glam to any occasion or outfit!
