Recently several girlfriends asked me about wearable/”beginners” red. So I thought I’d write about it here, as some of you may be interested in this topic, too.
Althought I personally love matte full-on red, I perfectly understand that not everyone is ready for it. This is why sheer formulas may be a good option to begin with.
I have chosen three that I love. And these all are high-end. Why? Well, if you buy a “cheap” red, you will always find an excuse not to wear it. But if you invest in a luxury lipstick – you’d have to. And, let’s face it, who doesn’t love beautiful things?

These are basically rich and creamy balms that moisturize the lips and give a beautiful tint. I’d say that they give more colour than the original lip perfectors.
I personally really love the packaging and the design. You can definitely tell that it’s a high-end lip balm.
I was sent the shades:
01 Rose, It is the same shade as the first original Lip Perfector that I’ve bought several years ago. A pretty every day pink. You can never go wrong with it.
03 My Pink which is just like Clarins Lip Balm Crayon reacts with theRead More
Rouge Bunny Rouge re-launched all their lipsticks and I have already showed a preview here but it’s time to take a closer look.
I was sent all five shades from the Sheer Lipsticks Succulence of Dew range, and here they are.
It is interesting how I was recently reading about a “lipstick wardrobe” that every girl should have, and I think that RBR nailed it with their shade selection. Here we go…
MUSINGS – “Wet effect, medium transparency, natural pinky rose”
This is a such a pretty and fresh every day colour. It is a perfect balance of nude, peach and pink – would go with just any makeup look.
PERFUME OF HIS GAZE - “Wet effect, medium transparency, cool toned rose taupe”
Surprisingly this was my most worn shade. It will be aRead More
If you follow me on Instagram or read my About section – you have probably noticed that black and red are my favourite colours. I can never have too many black clothes or too many red lipsticks and nail polishes.
I have written about that so many times, but today I want to share my latest red lip combo obsession which I have discovered “by accident ” and have been wearing for weeks now. It is the red that I have been rocking all holidays. I even included a photo…
So what are the products?
I have shared my love for this so many times… I like how long lasting and matte it looks, and the deep cool toned red. But I just wanted something brighter and warmer. So I have decided to put Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Tesoro (review and swatches; £15/$22. You can buy Stila from Sephora and Beauty Bay. Sephora) on top. On its own Stila is too warm and orange for my complexion. But together it was a dream-came-true combination.A classic matte, vibrant, full-on red! Show stopper, if you want. It alsoRead More
I featured a MeMe Korean Beauty Box recently, and promised a detailed review of a cult product - Sweet Glam Tint Glow.
After using it for several weeks, I can totally see why it is loved by so many. First of all, it feels amazing on, hydrating, moisturizing and weightless at the same time, it definitely helps to improve the overall condition of the lips.
Besides that, it changes the colour with time, and looks different on everyone. I have the shade which is called 02 Juicy Coral (there are also 01. Baby Pink and 03. Fuchsia Purple available). Right after the application it looksRead More
