Red lipstick was pretty much unexplored territory for me until around a year ago. I’d always assumed it didn’t suit me, and avoided it like the plague. When I finally tried it, I was hooked almost instantly – it made me feel glamorous, feminine and edgy. When Beauty UK kindly sent me a bundle of products for various review/tutorial purposes, I was thrilled to see that they’d included a gorgeous red lisptick – in No.8, Naughty.
Can you tell that I was getting kind of bored of generic blog photos? I’m thinking of making this a signature photo style with lipsticks…
I was incredibly impressed with this product. It was the first time I’ve never felt compelled to use a lipliner alongside red lipstick – the colour glided on smoothly and didn’t show any signs of feathering or wear, even after drinking! For me, it has the perfect shine balance: there is a definite sheen, but it isn’t overpowering. I hate that ‘drooling’ look you can sometimes get if a lip product is too shiny, and thankfully there is no trace of that in this Beauty UK lipstick.
Colour-wise, it has a slight hint of coral amongst the red. Whilst it isn’t my ideal choice, I still really liked the finish and the coral wasn’t overwhelming. I would thoroughly recommend this product, and at £3.49, you really can’t go far wrong!
