The Perfect Red Lipstick

I have recently been loving autumnal/wintery make-up, and one of my favorite trends has always been red lips. However, I didn't own a red lipstick so I decided to finally buy one. I bought a Rimmel lipstick in the colour 170 'Alarm' and I love it!



It has a smooth, moisturising texture, and has a slightly glossy finish - it is not a matte lipstick, like others from Rimmel. The colour is a cool-toned red with a hint of pink in it. It has a small amount of shimmer in the actual stick, but this does not really show up on the lips, apart from giving a slight sheen.

This can be worn very full on as a bright, bold lip, and it stays on your lips for a long time. To increase this time you can use a lip liner underneath, then apply lipstick, then blot and then apply the lipstick again. This will also give you a slightly more vibrant colour than when you just wear it alone.

You can also apply it very lightly and then blend it into your lips, to give a natural rosy colour that I love, which is perfect for everyday wear.

I would definitely recommend this lipstick, or any other Rimmel lipstick, as it's such a good product considering you only pay £4.99. You can wear it in many different ways, and it has such a nice feeling when you apply it. If you are scared about try a red lip, you start off buy dabbing a small amount and blending it, and then gradually build up the colour as you start to feel more comfortable!

    1. Rimmel is one of my favorite drugstore brands - such a shame that it's not as affordable in Turkey:(xx
