Review: Rockalily Lipstick in Rockette Red – Perfect Red Lipstick!

The hunt for the perfect red lipstick is one that has spanned decades – possibly even centuries (we had some pretty stylish ancestors at certain points in history!). I would love to know how much the average woman spends on lipsticks that don’t suit her, but yet we still do it. That is why I was overjoyed to find one that was beyond perfect for me – Rockalily Lipstick in Rockette Red.

I was tempted to do my usual ‘lipstick blog’ photo where I show you the product in the tube, but I’m feeling this product far too much to keep it contained in its packaging!

There are so many things I love about this product that it is hard to know where to begin! Let’s start with first impressions, the packaging: the design is gorgeous and even the feel of the tube screams ‘vintage glamour’. I adore the name of the lipstick and brand alike – it just embodies what rocking red lipstick is all about. The texture of the product is smooth, creamy and luxuriously thick without being even slightly cakey. It is a matte shade, and it also blue-toned, which can make your teeth look whiter!

I also loved the presentation of the lipstick in the postage bag – look what it says on top of the packet:

The lipstick was £14 and was worth every single penny. I’m determined to own the entire collection one day! Visit the website at:

    I’ve never thought that i’d suit red lipstick because I am the palest person ever (The only way to describe it is that people have said that I look like an albino minus the hair and eyes!), but after seeing how gorgeous it looks i’m dipping into Uni savings just to buy it!!

    I’m still on the hunt for my perfect red lipstick, since I have pale skin too. Most usually was me out or bring out the pink in my skin so I’m definately trying this one. Thanks!
