Red Lipsticks Testing

In today’s post I’d like to present the collection of red lipsticks I use. I wear red lips everyday (see here for example), because I got, safe to say, addicted to it. It has been years since I bought my first Dior lipstick, and got absolutely fascinated by how it changes face, and how glam it looks.

Another thing is, I am a big fan of vintage looks – espacially the Second World War DIY feminine fashion, and the red lipstick clearly appears on the majority of pictures from that period of time. You can read more about it here.

I get a lot of questions about which shades and brands I use, so I decided to evaluate all the ‘red ones’ that I have.

I accessed my cosmetics under four different aspects, giving them ‘a mark’ from 1 to 5.

I hope it will appear helpful to some of you, let me know what you think in your comments.

Also – if you have a red lipstick you would like to recommend, please do so 🙂





#1 MAC Palette, Trend Forecast

I like MAC, but this particular palette is not their strongest product, it’s average. I would never have bought it, because I am not the biggest fan of Lip Glos Sets, but I got this one to test. I  recommend it for undecided ladies – the colors are good, and the structure is great. Find the new Spring 17 Mac Palettes (around 40$) here.

#2 Maybelline Color Sensational, 965 siren in scarlet

I had previously never had anything from Maybelline. The only reason I got this one was a sale promotion in Rossmann, but I don’t regret buying it. I used to complain about this one, but it appeared to be a good-lasting lipstick of a good value. Find more here.

#3 Clinique Long Last Soft Matte Lipstick

My sister got me this lipstick for my birthday… two years ago. This is my third packaging. I absolutely adore this one! Not only the colour is so juicy, but it lasts for a good couple of hours. I am a big fan of Clinique in general, I will surely present some of my treasures in my upcoming posts. You can buy it here.

#4 Astor Soft Sensation Lipcolor Butter, o21

The worst product I have ever tested. Moreover, this Astor lipstick embarassed me during the fashion week in Berlin 😛 I was sure I have something long-lasting on, but Astor decided to spread all over my face 🙂 Stay away!

#5 Golden Rose Velvet Matte Lipstick, 25 Mexican Red

I am a fan of Golden Rose, that is why I take this product as a bad break. I like the colour, but the quality is not even close to the other Golden Rose products (unfortunately). Maybe try something else from the brand ? In case you like the shade, you can find this particular one here.
