My Red Lipstick Collection

 Let me just start by telling you how tired and sleepy I am. I'm tired and sleepy. Oh and also that I know it's not a lot, but it's more than enough for me! I'm actually wondering if I'd get to use it all ever!
Oh and back to the story - I worked my bum off all day, and started to feel a little feverish by the end of the day. Then because I was feeling unwell, I thought it would be perfectly appropriate to clean up a little, have a shower (it's raining constantly and a lot cooler now!) then switch off the lights and squint and stare at my laptop and edit a million pictures only to realise those were not what I intended to use! I'm so ashamed; I cant believe I'm writing this here!

I just brushed my teeth and I swear to God, I put the brush to my nose instead of in my mouth and ended up with toothpaste on my nose! Cant believe that happened to me! So I'll just tell you what's what and go to sleep! Okay? Btw, The picture above and below (not the last) are in the same order.
(L-R) Colorbar Velvet matte Hearts & Tarts, MAC Ruby Woo, Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick-Tantrum, Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick-Alarm, Rimmel Kate Moss Lipstick #22, MAC So Chaud

If you've been reading my blog for a while now, you must know that I'm a recent convert and only started wearing red lipsticks recently. Remember how I told you once that I'd told a friend of mine that MAC Viva Glam Cyndi was the closest to a red lipstick of all that I owned? And she said pffbth. I'd forgotten to add that on the picture above and so did here in the next picture. 2nd swatch from left is MAC Viva Glam Cyndi.
If red lipstick is still not what you'd dare to wear, try something sheer like Viva Glam Cyndi to get you confident!
 OR
Wear red lipgloss like the MAC Double Dare Cremesheen Glass and/or Maybelline Colorsensational lipgloss in Cranberry Cocktail.
You can see a post on how to wear bright lipsticks easily here.
I just got another red lipgloss today. It's ok! I'll talk about it soon-ish! So that's that. 7 lipsticks (1 backup) and 3 lipglosses. Good for now!

    1. yes, when I got hearts and tarts I thought they were dupes. it's a lot darker and slightly more yellow toned.

  7. I have Rimmel Kate Moss in 22. Thinking of trying Rimmel's Alarm or Tantrum but I can't decide! I read that Tantrum is quite similar to Rimmel Kate Moss in 01. Any thoughts?
