I was really excited when I heard that L'Oreal were bringing out a new collection of red lipsticks, just like they did last year with the nude collection. I was such a massive fan of the nude shades last year and they were the only lipsticks I wore! So needless to say I had very high expectations for the pure red collection.
I love the concept of these lipsticks. Each shade is made to suit and compliment different skin tones and named after a celebrity so it makes colour matching even easier! I'm sure this will help a lot of people that have a hard time deciding on the right shade for them. Red lipstick is a hard shade to carry off!
When I swatched the four shades on my arm (Julianne's Red, Blake's Red, Eva's Red and Liya's Red), I knew that I needed the Eva red lipstick. I know I'm fair skined but I felt like her red would suit me the most and it was my favourite of the bunch without a doubt. The red isn't too dark and isn't too light. All the other reds were a lot lighter and pinker and that isn't what I really want in a red lipstick as I prefer them darker. So I went ahead and bought Eva's red anyway!
The formula is amazing and the staying power is absolutely incredible! I can wear this lipstick for hours without having to re-apply! My lips haven't felt dry is the slightest either. I've also noticed that this lipstick really does compliment my skin tone even though it's meant for darker skin.
I don't have bad word to say about this lipstick. I know it will be really popular and may even convert nude lipstick lovers into red lipstick fiends!
What's your favourite lipstick?
