Day 4: Red Lip Galore

Obviously coming into the festive season the red lips start to make an appearance. If your not so brave like myself you might like this post because I have included lots of nude shades with some red undertones and not forgetting the classic bright shades. I feel like there is a shade for everyone so I hope you like it!
Benefit Benetint - This is one for people who might not wear a lot of makeup because it is quite subtle. I love this for days when I just want a pop of red on my lips. It's super glossy and moisturizing and definitely one I would recommend for a daily basis.

Maybelline Lipstick in Iced Caramel - We all know how much I love this lipstick, it is probably my all time favourite drugstore lipstick. It is a nude with red undertones which I think is a shade that is very universal. It's not matte but not glossy, it's almost like a satin finish, super opaque and looks great with every makeup look.

Freedom Pro Lipstick in Red Wine - This is one of those colours I feel like everyone should own. It is just a true red, not too pink, too dark or too purple, just the perfect shade. Again, this has quite a satin finish which is great because you can powder it down to make it matte or add a gloss to make it shiny.

MUA LUXE Metallic Liquid Lipstick in Blaze - If you are one for a very bold and unique lip colour, I think this is one for you. Metallic lips have been super trendy this year so a red metallic lip would look amazing for Christmas. The colour is very dark but still has that red tone to it and I think the metallic finish just adds an extra something to the lip look.

Barry M Lip Liner in Coral Red - If your one for a more orange kind of red this is an amazing shade for you. I love Barry M lip liners and the shade of this one is just so beautiful.

New Look Matte Lip Pencil - Sadly this doesn't have a shade but it is pinky nude colour with a hint of red to it. This has got a lovely matte finish and I love the way it applies.

What shade of red do you love to wear the most?
