It is difficult for me to find a red lipstick that matches my warm skin tone. Granted, I haven't look that hard, but so far the ones I found all have hints of blue. Urgh. But, I did managed to find 3 so far that are just the most kick ass warm reds ever!!!
Lancome Color Design Lipstick in First Crush, all pictures taken indoor with flash unless otherwise noted.
- Lancome Color Design in First Crush: this is probably the most perfect yellow-based red lipstick ever! The texture is thin and airy, I would even say sheer, yet at the same time, it is crazily pigmented and if I apply just one layer on the lower lips and press my lips together to even out on both, I get a beautiful juicy red stain. Love this, but darn Lancome is going to discontinue it!! Why?!?
Swatch for First Crush. Picture taken in natural light without flash.
- Clinique Long Last Soft Shine in Red Red Red: the lighting at the time I took the picture was bad, so the lipstick doesn't look red or yellow-based in the picture, but it is. Love it!
- Esolis Lip Tint SPF 15 in Vivid Red: yet another beautiful red lipstick that was sadly discontinued :( See my Esolis Lip Tint SPF 15 post.
