Current Favorite Red Lip Products

I have only recently really gotten into red lip products. I used to have a deep and immense fear of red lippies because I always thought of them as too bright and too bold for me. I was so used to my regular old nudes and pinks that I was afraid to branch out and try other lippies.

But, then I got the Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Cruella and everything changed. After one swipe, I knew I had to go out and get more red lippies.

So, I did. And here they are.

{From top to bottom: L’Oreal Color Riche Lipliner in Always Red ($5.99), Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Cruella ($26),  Sephora Cream Lip Stain in Always Red ($14), and Revlon Ultra HD Lip Lacquer in Fire Opal ($8.99).}

Okay, in my current red lip favorites, I have a lipliner, a matte lip pencil, a lip stain, and a lip gloss. So, I have a little bit of everything. Let’s roll!

L’Oreal Lipliner: Honestly, I bought this on a whim because I have been meaning to get a lip liner to go with my new red lippies. It isn’t a bad liner at all. It doesn’t feather and it does last a good amount of time. It does have a weird smell (I don’t know how to describe it other than “bad”) and the tip is a little fragile so it breaks really easily if you twist it up too much when you apply it. Other than that, it is a good (not super duper duper great) lip liner for the price. Would recommend if you need a inexpensive liner.

Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil: I have talked a little about this in my Sephora Birthday Gift blog post, so I will make this short. It has a great feel on the lips, great pigmentation, and is just a great lip pencil. It is easy to apply and is a beautiful red that will fit basically every skin tone. I love it!

Sephora Cream Lip Stain: I feel like I have been talking about these a lot. I have been obsessed with them for at least a year and a half and only recently have been talking about them in multiple blog posts in a row (I promise I will stop mentioning it until my 2015 yearly favorites). The red Sephora cream lip stain is just as good as my Infinite Rose one. Great pigmentation, smell, wear time, everything. Those lip stains are good stuff.

Revlon Ultra HD Lip Lacquer: I am just going out there and saying that the few Ultra HD products I have tried from Revlon are great. I bought the color Fire Opal in hope that it was a nice true red that could easily be plopped over my matte red lip products if I ever wanted to have a glossy look. To my dismay, this is more of a orange toned red that isn’t really something I would wear. But, I am definitely going to make it work (and I will definitely pick up the Carnelian shade which is a true red). Other than the color fail I made, the formula is awesome. The applicator is a little brush which I find cool and great to apply it with because it just applies it really nicely. It isn’t too sticky or annoying (like some lip glosses) but still gives a nice shine. I really like it.

And those are my favorite red lip products of the moment. I have really been loving red lippies and hope that you give some of these a try because they are fantastic products!
