First of all, let me apologize for being absolutely and utterly crap this month with my posts. February hit me really hard and it hasn't been very kind to me. I was feeling very down about work and I feel like I have been having an early mid-life crisis. I wasn't feeling like myself and I just couldn't find the time or the motivation to do anything! But hey, February is nearly over and things are looking up! So again, sorry!

Now back to business! I had this post planned for before Valentine's Day but of course never happened so I decided to do it now anyway and show you my favorite high street red lipsticks! A couple of years back I didn't leave the house without red lipstick on. Literally, it could be 7 am and I would be wearing red lipstick, I was obsessed. So as you can imagine I have accumulated a few red shades and it was super hard to narrow it down to only 6.

Starting from the left, this is one of my forever favorites. The Rimmel London Lasting Finish by Kate Moss in the shade 01. I am not lying, I have five of this one, most of them nearly finish but still usable with a lip brush. This lipstick is super creamy and it does last all day.

The L'Oreal Color Rich by Blake in the shade Privee Red is one my newest additions to the collection. I got this before Christmas and I have used it a fair bit already as you can see. I am a big fan of L'Oreal lipsticks as I think they are super long lasting and never dry my lips.

Another brand I'm a big fan of is Revlon. This Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in the shade Really Red is definitely more pink based than any of my other favorites. One thing I love about Revlon lipsticks is how easy they are to apply.

Next on the list is my favorite summer time red. The L'Oreal Color Rich Made For Me in the shade Intense Magnetic Coral. This red has an orange undertone which looks great when my skin is a little bit more tanned. Again, it's super long lasting, creamy and the packaging is beautiful!

Now if you've read my blog for a while you'll know I absolutely love Sleek lipsticks and obviously the shade Vixen had to be included in my favorites! I have been wearing this shade for over five years and I still can't get enough of it. This is my Top 1 red lipstick. I used to work in a bar from 6pm to 5am and it would last all night without exception!

And last but not least, the newest of them all the Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in the shade Beso. I didn't know if to include this one as it's not technically a regular lipstick or high street but I thought it deserves a mention. Out of all the liquid lipsticks I've got the Stila ones win hands down! I love the formula and the pigmentation and they are very long lasting too!

So these are my top 5/6 favorite high street red lipsticks of all time. Which one's yours?


  1. I hope March is a kinder month to you! I love red lipsticks, they pull together any look so well in my opinion. My favourite all time red is Russian Red by Mac, I just love the blue undertones. I'm also a fan of Revlon's Certainly Red.

  6. The Kate Moss 01 is my favourite red too - I love the formula! I have so many from that range, it's great value for money. I've heard loads about the Stila Liquid Lipsticks so I really need to try one out soon x

  7. Loving the lipstick collection. Going to have to grab a few. Still loving my MAC Ruby Woo drying as hell but the colour is exquisite :)))


  8. I find it so encouraging that you say there was a time you wouldn't leave the house without red lipstick.. I can't comprehend ever leaving WITH red lipstick on, it makes me feel so so dressy. I really must try to do it sometime, though!
