I think I have found my perfect red lippie!
A couple of weeks ago I was out shopping with my best friend and I decided I needed to treat myself to a new lipstick. I've been on the hunt for a new red lipstick since Bourjois discontinued their Lovely Rouge colour.
I went to MAC in John Lewis in Southampton and the assistant was super lovely! She helped me look through all their reds, and we decided that as I'm very pale with pink, cool skin tones, I'd suit a blue toned red rather than an orange toned red.
We selected MAC Red which is described as a vivid bluish-red by MAC and comes in a satin finish which looks fairly matte but is moisturising
This is a really hard lipstick to take a photo of the true colour but hopefully this helps!
I love it! Although it was £15, I am so pleased I got it, it's my new go-to lipstick for nights out, parties, upcoming weddings! I think it's my new HG red lippie! Applied properly with lipliner, it seems to last about 4 hours, and clings after drinking so is great for nights out, and is a very flattering texture for dry, winter lips.
