My Current Lipsticks on Rotation: Red Edition

Last week, I wrote about the nude lipsticks on rotation. This week, I’m featuring the shades I tend to favor: The Reds!

Huda Beauty Liquid Lipstick in Heartbreaker*

Price: AUD 35.00 (full size)

Texture: Matte

Staying Power: 8x coffees

One of the iconic lipstick shades from Huda Kattan’s makeup collection, Heartbreaker is this wonderful cross between this cherry red and strawberry red. Huda carved her spot in the intensely competitive liquid lipstick category by creating a product that not only feels comfortable but lasts a darned long time without crumbling. Combine it with her lip contour pencil and you’re​ on to a winner.

Milani in Ruby Valentine*¹

Price: AUD 13.95

Texture: Satin

Staying Power:3x coffees

For those who don’t know, Milani is a well known brand that brings great quality products at affordable prices. Their conceal and perfect foundation is regarded as one of the holy grail products by Tati from Glamlife Guru. Ruby Valentine is a super glam red shade that instantly amps up your look. I love wearing this lipstick as a stain during the day and then unleash it’s full on power in the evening. Some Fridays, I even go full glam lips and muted eyes for the work day.

Bite Beauty Lipstick in Fraise*

Price: AUD 30.00 (full size)

Texture: Matte

Staying Power: 4x coffees

This is a lipstick with a silky texture that sets to a matte finish. It looks a lot like a pencil with a narrow point. Of all the shades in their limited edition redux set, this red is one of my favorites. Something about this red reminds me of happy days and to me looks totally wearable during the day.

Tom Ford Lips & Boys in Alejandro*

Price: AUD 50.00

Texture: Satin to Shimmer Tint

Staying Power: 4x coffee

One of my prized lipsticks that I purchased at duty free on holiday last year, Alejandro is this stunning red lipstick with hints of shimmer in it. It smells of pure vanilla (not the imitation junk) and the tiny size is totally up my alley as I can see myself finishing this lipstick. When it wears down, the shimmer still stays while the red fades into a hint colour. For a satin lipstick, this is one of my absolutely favorites. Thanks to my friend Su for bringing this collection to my attention.
