You should think of this as a present from red lipstick-obsessed girl to all the women.red-lipsticks

  1. NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Dragon Girl

This is Taylor Swift’s favourite lipstick. It is unbelievably flattering and bright. I particularly like that it comes in a pencil, because it makes application unbelievably fast and simple. Also, I am pleased any time I can skip lip liner. And this lipstick is really miraculous – it never dries out and it actually feels like velvet on your lips. I like to combine it with some defined eyebrows, loosely wavy hair and shimmery bronzer. And my look is elevated by matte finish.

  1. Lipstick Queen Velvet Rope Lipstick in Entourage

Dark reds can look strangely and they can be very difficult. I have searched deep scarlet that will suit me for many years and the reason for that is that they often apply patchily, the lines of your lips absorb them and they wear unevenly. I am very lucky to find this lipstick. This rich dark red recalls me of a truly fine wine and it is one of few shades that both younger and older women can wear. Although it is considered to be a matte lipstick, it has some shine to it which gives the color vibrancy and life so I think that it is more like semi-matte. Also, the case? It’s gorgeous. And to achieve sexy look, I pair matte skin products and smokey brown eye makeup with this lipstick.

  1. Urban Decay Matte Revolution in Bad Blood

I simply adore a nice matte lipstick and this is one of the best I have ever used. This lipstick is dreamy, creamy and it feels great on your lips. I apply this lipstick immediately when I get up and it stays impeccable whole day. Bad Blood, not long ago seen on FKA Twigs at the VMAs, is a beautiful cool-toned crimson which recalls me of old famous actresses. To allow this color take the centre stage on my face, I pair this lipstick with lots of shimmery highlighter and brown mascara for the highest radiance

  1. Lipstick Queen Saint Lipstick in Deep Red

I am a huge fan of this lipstick, as you have probably already noticed. Poppy King, a founder of this brand, is one of my all unsurpassed beauty role models. I simply adore this line of lipstick because it is very sheer. It is a gorgeous neutral red which provides my lips with a hint of rosy color without being overpowering. It also has a beautiful pastry-like fragrance. If you are just starting to use red lipsticks, this is an excellent color to begin with. I often apply it with no makeup at all when I am out walking with my friends, or I pair it with bright green eyeliner.

  1. MAC Vamplify Lip Gloss in Tease Don’t Touch

I don’t like a lip gloss because these products are often sticky or they require a high maintenance. But even I think that MAC Vamplify is great. This product is so great – non-sticky, shiny and brightly pigmented and unbelievably long-lasting. It is a bit warm-toned candy apple red which is a pure perfection. I adore to pair it with peach blush and black winged eyeliner to get a starlet-inspired look.
