Just over a week ago now I had a little haircut, and although most people aren't seeing such a difference, it's altered just about everything; I feel more like me, and I've started having a clear out of clothing, instead looking for more simple but chic designs, shapes and styles. Make-up wise I've reverted back to a simple flick of eyeliner with a classic red lip, of which I have a few favourites.
I've featured Topshop's Screen Siren a few times recently, so I won't say too much about it, but it's a gorgeous slightly pink toned red that I love. Topshop make-up always really impresses me, and their lipsticks are one of the best from them. I've been in love with the Revlon matte balms too, my favourite being Striking. It's got a slight orange undertone that I find really flattering on me, and I just love the formula, finish and longevity of these. One of the best releases so far this year!
Bourjois Rouge Edition in Jetset is a more recent purchase, and one I probably overlook too often really. To me this is the most classic red, so perfect if you're looking for an all rounder than you can wear day or night. I have a couple from the Kate Moss Lasting Finish lipsticks that I love too. 01 is an absolutely gorgeous deep, vampy red that I haven't worn for a couple months but come autumn I can't get enough of it. 022 has a very, very slight orange undertone but again leans on the classic red tone, and is another I get a lot of wear out of.
Next on my list to buy is MAC Russian Red, which I think will be the red to end all reds! If you have any classic red lipsticks you can't get enough of, let me know! I'm always looking for more to add to the collection.. ;)
