Tending to various reader’s suggestions, I have decided to do a small lipstick haul. These are shades of the red/orange lipsticks I own. They are from a variety of brands and fit in to various price ranges. There is a color here for everyone of any complexion.
It was hard to capture the lipstick colors accurately so I tried another method (below).
This photo is very accurate in terms of color.
1. Wet n Wild- 519 A
2. Wet n Wild- 520 E
3. Revlon- 710 Moon Drop
4. Wet n Wild- Spotlight Red 911D
5. Nicka K- Berry Plum (was not in the first photo)
6. Elizabeth Taylor’s Passion Lipstick- Shade 2
7. Yves Saint Laurent (YSL) ROUGE PUR- 1 Le Rouge: blood red
My Favorite is # 4, Wet n Wild’s- Spotlight Red, which is a dupe for MAC’s MAC Red (similar to MAC’s Ruby Woo). Spotlight Red is very rich in color, matte, and long lasting, you won’t have to keep reapplying, even after a meal. I am not a fan of # 1 and # 2, which is the cheaper brand of Wet n Wild (yes there is an even cheaper brand). I have notice the silver tubes of Wet n Wild lipsticks do not have a huge color pay off, and are not long lasting. I wouldn’t waste my money on them again. The black tubes of Wet n Wild are great, amazing color pay off, and they last very long. They are extremely budget friendly, around $3 a tube, which is a less then a quarter of the price of a MAC lipstick.
Shades of red can be worn throughout the year, it brings a bit of sexy to any outfit. I hope at least one of these shades make it into your makeup bag, one can never go wrong with a shade of red. I will have more lipstick hauls to come. Comment below and tell me which of yours if your favorite! 🙂
