Love is in the air~~ We are celebrating extra dose of love this year as Chap Go Mei and Valentine’s day fall on the same date. RED would be my go to colour this month as its abundance during CNY. A red lip is a symbol of sensuous , sexy woman which fits for Valentine celebration.
I want to share my favourite red lip colours that are now in my collection.
Maybelline Red Porcelain by Colour Sensational
If I want to go for a retro, seductive red lips, I would definitely grab this first. This is a hyperpigmented neutral Crimsonred that flattering for all skin tone. One swipe is often more than enough. It has a semi matte finish that captured well in photos.
For a precise application, use a lip brush. Blot away any excess with a tissue and this lip color with last all night.
Pair the lips with classic cat-eyes and you’ll capture any man attention.
NYX retractable lip liner in MPL 09 Ruby
A matte red is always flattering in the lips as it is such a bold statement colour. I have not find the best matte lipstick, but the lip liner pencil is best the matte red that I looking for. This shade, Ruby is a neutral true red colour and I love its matte finish. It is waterproof, smudgeproof and not drying the lips. This lip colour lasted all day. Unfortunately, it will take me a few more minutes to draw and fill in the lips carefully for a perfect red pout. However, the creamy texture of this lip liner makes it super easy to blend.
Etude House Rosy tint lips in K-POP rose
I know..I know… I have been talking about this lip product like a zillionth time. Can’t help myself. I LOVE it so much. It is easy to apply and the pigmentation is so great. I can do a stained lips look or a bold rosy bloom on the lips with this little lip colour. I love wearing this for the night as the shade is rather a dark burgundy red. The consistency is oh-so-creamy and it does stain the lips to a perfect hue. I think pairing this lip colour with a soft smokey eyes with gives you that mysterious vampy persona which is perfect for a Valentine’s dinner date.

Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in 070 Cherry Tart
Who says red is only for night time? This lip colour is so appropriate during the day and gives a sparkling, buttery shine to the red lips. The colour is so buildable from a sheer raspberry red to intense cherry lips. It has macro hot pink glitters that screams FUN. It also has a smooth consistency that hydrates the lips well.
The only downside that it does not last long, so you have to bring it around so touch ups.
Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in 055 Adore
This one is an oldie but a goodie. I don’t wear this shade a lot but I just at awe with this brick red colour with micro gold glitters. It is moisturising and balmy, not to heavy on the pigmentation but it gives a sheer golden glow on a red lips. It matches beautifully on medium and tan skin tone.
What is your favourite red lips? Matte or Glossy? Can you guess which lip product mentioned above that I’ll wear for my Valentine dinner date tonight?
Have a sweet, romantic weekend with your Valentine or spend the day loving yourself (for those who doesn’t have a date) coz everybody deserves love and one should always love thyself first before loving others.
