Red lipstick when done properly can lift an outfit, amp up the sexy and add a wiggle to your step. When done badly it can make you look as though your little sister did you make up or even just plain trampy. It is one of those lipstick colours I have just avoided, I have rather plump lips so if I get colours wrong it really in your face 😄
I love vintage and pin up so I have been on a quest for the perfect red lipstick for me. I have looked at other brands but they were a bit too expensive for me to splash on a red lipstick that might not be right. So off I rocked to the closest Jordana stand. They had quite a few different shades but it was Radiant Red that really caught my eye, for $3.00 NZD it wasn’t something to sweat about if it was wrong.
For my first attempt at buying a red lipstick and a $3.00 NZD one at that I am thoroughly pleased. Take a look at my swatches.
For such a stunning colour I sort of wish it had a little fancier packaging, but really you see the colour on my lips not the case.
The pigment of this lipstick is amazing O_O I couldn’t believe how intense it was even with just one swipe. It goes on like a dream and doesn’t dry my lips out.
The above photo is the lipstick with no lip liner. I decided that I would try a lip liner to see if it helped smooth out the edges.
Above is the lipstick with lip liner. The liner I purchased was Jordana Quickliner Lip Pencil is Scarlet. I think it really helped smooth out the edges as well as be a guide for me apply the lipstick 🙂
So Radiant Red perfect red for MaSucree? Heck yes! Will I wear this to work? You bet :3 Quest over? Don’t be silly a girl can never have too much lipstick.
Hope you enjoyed my post, be brave and go find yourself a nice red to suit you. It really does make you feel good.
A Billion Stars!
