Red lipstick has been a huge part of my look and collection since I first started wearing makeup. It was the first “grown-up” lipstick I ever purchased and is usually the first shade I will buy from a new range or brand. Red lipstick makes me feel powerful and confident and there is usually a shade for everyone.
When I heard about Kat Von D naming a lipstick “Underage Red” I have to admit my eyebrows raised a little. When I then found out why she named it that, I knew I had to have it. Read her full Facebook Post here on why she named it so. Underage Red is named for that first red lipstick you buy, the super bright, fire engine red one you slap on to get yourself into parties and gigs when you really shouldn’t be going. It’s that nostalgic shade that as soon as you put on you remember that feeling all those years ago of being unstoppable.
So without further ado lets see how Underage Red looks and performs. Read more
A girl can never have too much red lipstick and too much liquid matte lipsticks. Over Black Friday it was pretty much all I bought…and I bought a lot of them XD Lime Crime was on my list and I had to indulge in one of their new Velve-Tin and of course it was the red tin 🙂
The tin is super cute and very sturdy and well made. I was super chuffed when it arrived!

Makeup Revolution has been creating some serious packaging need recently. They brought out their Rose Gold lipsticks and it was so hard not to buy all of them simply for the packaging. Chauffeur all soft pink beige, was of course the one I picked…for now.
Back again with more swatches of the L.A.Girl Matte Flat Velvet Lipsticks. Over and over again they keep impressing me and sending me back to buy more! In part three of my swatch fest I have Vavoom, Bliss, Hot Stuff and Snuggle for you today.
Matte Liquid Lipsticks have become quite the obssession of mine, they come in such a range of colours and generally last all day long. Australis has their own line of matte liquid lipsticks that I reviewed when they first came out and they have yet again lured me in with their great range of colours. With 24 colours in the standard range of Velourlips Matte Lip Creams and quite a few Liniteds Editions ones too, there is quite a number that I need in my life. Read more
Nyx Soft Matte Lip Creams have been such a welcome addition to my collection, Monte Carlo was amazing and I knew I had to get more. San Paulo had always called to me and I was lucky enough to get it as a birthday present recently. Read more
I have adored matte liquid lipsticks for such a long time and have been so pleased that some easier to find brands have been launching their own. Maybelline has had their Vivid Mattes out for a while now, but it has been quite hard to get one as the stand is always empty. I was lucky enough to be taken out shopping for my Birthday and the lipstick Gods smiled on me that day as there was a full stand of Maybelline. I picked up Nude Flush and Rebel Red. Read more
Makeup Revolution is a great, inexpensive brand with many different products. I have been wanting to buy a million and one more things from them for a good while now and a sister brand of their’s Freedom Cosmetics has been tempting me as well. When they annoucned that all of their brands including their skincare and hair dyes ones were going to be available through one website I was so excited. TAM Beauty is the new website to purchase from and gets all of those brands in one place!
We already know that MAC is one of my favourite brands and I need little to no convincing to buy myself a new lipstick from them. Mehr has been a lipstick that I have seen all of the show and I thought it was about time I gave it a go to see whether I could rock it.
How do you even say that? Like Mur? Meh? Meh-air? Any ideas? Read more
Red lipstick is such a weakness of mine, even though I tend towards the nude lipsticks in my day to day work look, you can never beat a beautiful red lipstick. A huge portion of my lipstick collection is still reds.
L.A.Girl Matte Flat Lipsticks really impressed me with their quality and they have quite the range of colours. The last time I stopped by a L.A.Girl stand I picked up three more…they were all some type of red XD.
So today I wanted to share with you Relentless, Runway and Gossip.
