Why red? Red is not just a color, it comes along with lots of meanings that make women feel more confident and attractive, especially when talking about makeup. As history can tell, red lips originated in the ancient Mesopotamia and Rome, they got the red color from the inside of certain gems and applied it on the lips and around the eyes. Cleopatra, the first beauty icon ever, wore this color which she gathered from bugs and ever since, red pigment has equaled power.
It’s true, wearing red lips gives you an instant shot of self- confidence and highlights your physical appearance. I love this never ending trend and that’s why I’ve decided to share some of my favorite red lipsticks with you.
It’s a complete line of lipsticks, glosses, and pencils in three different finishes: matte, satin, and metal in a broad variety of red shades. I love them because they have a moisturizer and weightless effect, but most importantly, long-lasting. My favorite ones from the Couture color line are 854 Concorde Cherry Red and Red Smile intense orangey-red. In liquid, my favorites are 999 Bloom and 966 Desire.
If you want a perfect finish, I recommend you to apply the matte or satiny first and then give it a glossy effect with the liquid.
This collection is definitely one of my favorites. The colors are amazing and so powerful. The liquid matte lip stain in Deep Burgundy is the best one for me. This one is really a highly pigmented and long-lasting product. There are also metallic colors which are great for night-outs. You must try the Chrome Red Clash.
Lancome L’absolu Rouge
With so many shades, it’s so difficult to decide which one’s my favorite. 132 Caprice, 198 Rouge Flamboyant, and 371 Passionnement are wonderful colors. This collection is amazing because these lipsticks are enriched with the Lancôme Pro-Xylane ™ redensifying molecule that gives your lips a moisturizing and bright effect. They also contain vitamin E that protects against environmental factors. These are perfect to use on a daily basis.
Chanel Rouge Allure
For a permanent style, I really like Chanel lip products, this Rouge line is water resistant and is supplemented with Vitamin E that provides a very hydrated and fresh appearance to the lips. I love the design of the container. It’s very easy to apply so you don’t have to worry about getting stained. There are 12 different colors with matte effect. My favorite color is Fresh Red, because as its name says it gives a fresh appearance for the whole day.
