Looking for a bright lively red lipstick for a brunette
I have dark hair, pale rosy skin and blue eyes. I tend to go for fairly dark blue toned reds like Revlon Red or Blake's Red from L'Oreal Colour Riche. I fancy a change for AW and would like to go for something brighter and a colour that's got a bit more 'pop' to it
I also need a lipstick that is non-drying, so I'm a bit scared to try something like Ruby Woo
Chanel Rouge Coco. You can get a shine version if you prefer. Several reds available. I love YSL Volupte - also available in shine. Reds are great. Neither of these are drying. Tom Ford ones are also very good but very pricy. A present maybe?
Thanks Milly. I've heard mixed reviews of Tom Ford lippies and to be honest, I can't quite get my head around spending nearly �40 on a lipstick! Then again, it would probably last me for a year or more. My birthday is in December.....
No. It is not twice as good. Just fantastically packaged! A style icon. I like Dior, Lancome, YSL and Chanel, Mac and occasionally M & S. I don't like drying lipsticks either so a creamy or glossy one is best. I do think you should look at manufacturers that have a good variety so you get a better choice of finish. The YSL one is not that long-lasting though, but lovely to put on. Similar to the Tom Ford and lovely to look at.
I have about 6 proper reds and my absolute favourite is MAC Ruby Woo. Its a blue red rather than an orange red so its wether you wanted a blue red or not but I love it. Its about £14. I wore it for my wedding and it lasted and looked perfect all day. It is Matte.
