Scarlet Lips

In celebration of the Avengers Age of Ultron movie (which is amazing by the way!) featuring a new character in the form of Scarlet Witch, I thought I would share my personal reviews of some of my favourite red lipsticks.

For those who aren't quite ready for super bold lips but want to brighten up their face with a subtle red lipstick, I would recommend Autograph’s Moisture Colour Lipstick in Coral. This is one of my favourite lipsticks which I often wear on a daily basis as it is so easy to apply and gives a smooth shiny finish. The colour isn't too bright so it is a red you can wear on any occasion that brightens up your face but doesn't draw too much attention to your lips.
You can find this lipstick in Marks and Spencer for £8.50

Next up is a truly bright red! Collection’s Volume Sensation Lipstick in Cherry Pop (No 8) is for those who want the wow factor on a night out or a bright pop of colour for the summer. This lipstick is so pigmented and lasts hours before having to re-apply. It has a nice matte finish, but avoid touching your lips too much throughout the day as I find the colour tends to transfer easily onto clothes and skin.
I found this in Boots for only £2.99!

Last but not least is a deep dark red for people daring enough to try it. I was nervous at first to try Rimmel London’s Lasting Finish Lipstick by Kate Moss in 107 as I have very pale skin and I thought the dark tones would drain the colour from my face. However, when I tried it on I was amazed that such a dark lipstick could look good on me. The plum shades that come through this deep red lipstick are really stunning and eye-catching. I really recommend giving this one a go for bold statement lips. I have found it is a great colour for nights out, is easy to apply and gives long lasting wear.
I picked this lipstick up in Boots for £5.49
