Top 6 Favourite Red Lipsticks 2012

I'm sure you're all sick and tired of hearing me go on about it, but I'm obsessed with bright lips and have been for quite a while, especially red lips. There's just such a chic-ness (if that's even a word, we will pretend that it is lol) to them and they really do help transform any outfit or look. Even more so if you add in a slick of back liner and some luscious false lashes.

I thought I would show you a few of my favourites, both high-end and low-end.

Barry M Lip Lacquer Mandarin
Illamasqua Gloss Mistress

Top 6 Favourite Red Lipsticks 2012
If I was under oath and had to choose my favourite, I would probably go for... the Barry M lip lacquer, the pigmentation is amazing, plus it's super cheap. You really can't beat it.

Feel free to leave me your red lipstick recommendations, I'm always on the lookout for new ones to add to my collection. Have you tried any of the ones I've mentioned, what are your thoughts? Let me know.

XOXO Claire


  1. My favourite reds are M.A.C red and Ladybug. Must get some Lipcote!

  2. well i have the mate ruby woo mac lipstick and it's really great, the pigmentation is awesome, you can't get a bright red! and it doesn't get on your teeth, doesn't wash off as you eat seeing as it's a mate lipstick and yeah! it's just generally great :) - i'd recommend lip balm after taking it off though... and a simple tissue after having liked your lips will take it off too so yeah, i find it great and perfect for me :)



  3. I'm so scared to wear red lipsticks. I just feel like I won't pull the look off at all!! I may be brave and try the Barry M Lip lacquer I heard there great and a bargain. xx

  6. Lipcote is awesome but stings like hell the first time xD :P
