The first 4 of my favourites post went live last week where I curated 4 of my favourite block heels on the High Street. This week we are going to the land of makeup and I have pulled together my thoughts on 4 of my favourite matte red lipsticks. As much as I love a good ol’ smokey eye, I can’t deny my love for a matte red lip. It is a classic look that adds a touch of glamour to any outfit. There are some great formulas on the High Street when it comes to a matte lipstick and even more so a matte red lipstick.
Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet It’s Redding Men : My love for this line of lipsticks is no secret. They are amazing. The formula, the colour range and the staying power are all fabulous. It’s Redding Men is a classic red that looks super sophisticated and lasts all day long.
NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Amsterdam : I would say that this is still a pretty classic red however it is a little more orange based than It’s Redding Men. The NYX Soft matte lip creams are just that – soft and a really great matte.
Revlon Colourburst matte balm in Standout : This is potentially more of an Autumn/Winter shade but who says you can only wear certain shades in certain months? This is much more of a berry red shade than the other and is very similar to Rimmel 107. One thing I really love about the Revlon Colourburst matte balm lipstick is the fact that it doesn’t get to a dry, caked on stage which some matte lipsticks can get to. Your lips feel moisturised all day while maintaining a bold matte finish.
NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Madrid : Again, potentially another “off season” shade but oh well. Another of the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams, this time in Madrid. This shade is very vamp and would be perfect for a night out in the Summer in my opinion.
