Red lipstick should be a staple in every girl's life and I have been looking for the perfect colour for ages. I HAVE FINALLY FOUND IT! Yes you heard me! Now its time to get out there and live by those simple rules our glamorous ancestors set before us: eat your vegetables, wear red lipstick and don't let boys be mean to you. keep reading to find out more about this holy grail of lippy:


This if from L'oréal's Pure Red collection featuring Blake Lively, Julianne Moore, Liya Kebede and Eva Longoria. There is four custom shades tailored to these for beautiful women. They're all matte but not drying. I chose Blake's Pure Red as it is a pure, ruby red.

How beautiful does this look? veeeery classy! I brought it with me for top-ups on a night out and I got compliments on it. How crazy is that?

Blake‘s red is a pure ruby red that is designed to suit warm skin tones...A matte that reveals red’s colour intensity. Enriched with velvet spheres, pure pigments and jojoba oils, lips feel more hydrated after applying.

The colour really is a true, pure red. L'Oréal recommend the colour for warm skin tones but my sister has a cool skin tone (where as I'm warm/neutral) and it looks beautiful on her. So I would recommend giving it a go! As for wearability, this stuff is lush. It glides on really smoothly whether use use a brush and liner or straight out of the bullet. It doesn't sink into the lines in your lips nor does it cling to any dry patches. It wears away evenly and doesn't sit in the corner of your mouth. Here is a swatch on my wrist and what it looked like on.
