Lip Inventory 2: Reds

I've done the pinks here and now it's my red lipsticks collection turn. I always used to be scared of wearing red lips out but now I've gotten used to it, depending on what I'm wearing on the rest of my face. Please to dear god tell me you can see the differences & finishes in these lipsticks, I know some are very similar, though. & again please ignore the messy application, as you probably know red lipstick is hard to wear without applying lip liner & using a brush first.

 L-R Nyx Round Lipstick in Eros, Avon Color Rich Mega Impact in Really Rosy, Maybelline Color Sensational in Are You Red-dy, Revlon Matte Lipstick in 005 Strawberry Suede, Innoxa Ultra Lips in Hot Chilli, Australis Moisture Intense in Saigon, BYS Matte Lipstick in Tango, Nyx Soft Matte Lip cream in Amsterdam

This is a stunning orange-y red colour that I haven't really used too many times, until this recent look here although I did mix it with another colour.

This is a sheer,glossy blue-red that I'm sure intensifies with a lip liner underneath. I haven't really used this one either except in the first few pictures here but it is a nice day-time red.

The prettiest blue-based red! Definitely one I would recommend, you can see it here, also here but I think I must have added a warmer gloss on top.
 A nice warm toned matte lipstick. I wore it with a lipgloss over the top here

This is one I've put away and forgotten about after one little incident where let's say I had a few too many drinks and applied it almost all over my face =/ so I haven't used it in a FOTD but it's a gorgeous blue-based red.

Hopefully you can tell this lovely blue-based red is matte, I did use it in a FOTD but I didn't post it, damn lol. Which I might soon.

 Maybe it was because I was wearing a gloss underneath this anyway that it turned out super glossy looking, it has a little bit but not that much. And it definitely is moisturizing. Another nice blue-based lippy that when I bought I decided I didn't like it, but now that I have tried it again I will actually wear it!

Unfortunately it looks much warmer than what it actually is.. maybe it's my screen? But this usually looks like a really nice deep, blue-based red. And it is actually matte, why does nothing look matte on me on close up swatches!? Awesome long-wearing power, too. I've used it here (look at that matte bluey-red goodness), mainly here, along with Are You Red-Dy.

My faves out of the lot would have to be..
Nyx Eros, Maybelline Are You Red-Dy, BYS Tango & Nyx Amsterdam. Although I do like the other ones, these are the ones I go to.
If there was another red I'd really have to get, it'd be either MAC Russian Red or Ruby Woo but I'd have to try them on :)

What are your favourite red lipsticks?


  1. Nice collection :) red lips are high maintenance but worth the effort, they look hot ..
