Lipstick of the Week – Red

By Get Lippie

 Last week, I set myself the challenge of only wearing red lipstick for the next seven days.  Here’s how I got on:

Clockwise from bottom:

Smashbox Limitless Lipstain in Sangria – this is a beautiful deep, deep red stain that doesn’t turn fuchsia on the lips, I love it, but wish it lasted longer. It’s not a real stain in the way most others are.
Chanel Rouge Allure in Flash – A limited edition Chanel lipstick from many (too many to mention) years ago, this is covered in silver leaf, but it’s a deep blood-red underneath, and this is the lipstick most responsible for my red lipstick addiction in the first place.
Benetint – Possibly the best known product from Benefit.  On it’s own, it’s a cool rose shade, but, I layered it with the Benetint Balm right next to it to deepen the colour.
Ila in Arabian Knights – A rich deep red balm.  I love it, and wear it very, very often.
Guerlain Rouge G in Geisha – The lipstick that is responsible for my obsession with Rouge G’s generally.  The perfect packaging, the glorious texture, and this is a beautiful bright, bright red.
Korres Lipgloss in Cherry – Perfect for red-haters, this is a light cherry red gloss, it wears pretty well, and doesn’t dry my lips out.

Here are swatches, with flash, and without:

Different reds for different occasions there – did you join me in wearing red this week?

Next week: PINK.
