The Autumn Red Lip Menu

The Autumn Red Lip Menu 
Autumn is now upon us so it's fully acceptable to relocate the knee high boots, put on the fur coat and wrap yourselves up in a million tartan scarves. The Autumn/Winter season is probably my favourite, there's something about being wrapped up in the cold weather, the longer nights and Christmas on the horizon, that always makes me feel excited. Another element that seems to be more approved in the Wintery season is, of course, the red lip! My red lippy collection seems to have suddenly grown within the past year but I seriously can't get enough of the wine, berry and cherry red shades. So to get everyone in the spirit of things, I thought I'd give my followers a run down of my all time favourite red lipsticks - high end and drugstore! So here is the The Autumn Red Lipstick Menu...
MAC Dark Side £15.50
A deep, burgundy shade in an amplified creme formula.
One of my all time favourite lipsticks with it's shiny finish
and the vampy, red-purple hue. 
Revlon ColourBurst Lacquer Balm Enticing £7.99
A chubby lip pencil with a high shine finish and sheer pigmentation.
MAC Plumful £15.50
A rosy pink-plum shade with an easily builded formula. Perfect 
for those who don't feel confident enough to wear a bold lip
but still want something red toned for A/W. 
Rimmel London Lasting Finish By Kate Moss 030 £5.49 
A beautiful red shade with a dark pink undertone. One of my
favourite reds from the drugstore! 
Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Glastonberry £23 -
The perfect plum pout with a matte finish. Great quality and
excellent pigmentation.
Dolce & Gabbana Passion Duo Intense £26 - 
The darkest in the collection. There's no surprise that it's called
'Intense'. A dark red-brown with a glossy finish and ultra 
creamy formula.
Revlon Colourstay Moisture Lip Stain India Intrigue £7.99 - 
An extra shiny formula with bold, beautiful colours. Takes a bit
of work to get these glosses perfectly blended but the end result
is really beautiful. 
Rimmel London Kate Moss Matte Lipstick 107 £5.49 - 
One of the most iconic, raved about reds out there. A beautiful 
deep berry shade teamed with a matte finish that is as good as
many of the high end lip products that I own. 
YSL Rouge Pur Couture Glossy Stain 16 Fuchsia £25 -
The first high end lip product that I owned. Has one of the 
prettiest finishes that I've ever seen. A fruity but subtle scent 
incredible staying power. Honestly the stain effect will not budge! 
Rimmel London Lasting Finish By Kate Moss 01 £5.49 -
Comes up a lot brighter in the picture but this is a really beautiful 
deep red with a creamy formula. Amazing pigmentation evidently
and a lovely cherry scent. 
NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil Damned £18 - 
A lovely red shade with a plum undertone finished off with a soft,
velvet matte finish. The formula is quite drying so be sure to smother
your lips in lip balm before. A really gorgeous product that's easy to
apply in its stick form. 
MAC Pedro Lourenco Lipstick Ruby £16.50 -
A limited edition red dressed in rose gold and matte black packaging.
One of the prettiest finishes I own for a red and lasts well on the lips
with a fade-to-matte stain formula. 
Topshop Lipliner Deception £5 -
One of my all time favourite shades. A bold, dark red that's easy to
apply in it's pencil form, giving ultimate precision for a great red lip
or a base for other products.
