Red Lips By Formula | | Chrisseytina Beauty

Red Lips By Formula | | Chrisseytina Beauty    

Today I thought I would talk you through all the red lip formulas available. It's not the easiest look to wear, so if you're not a huge fan of red lipstick there are plenty of other formulas to choose from that all give different look.

The Lipstick
We all know how this one goes; satin, matte, moisturising or sheer. It's the classic way of wearing a red lip, its classic and easy.

The Lip Lacquer
Applies like a liquid, sets like a satin. Lip lacquers look bold on the lips and are really long lasting, so I'd recommend them for a red lip lover.  The doe-foot applicator makes precision application easy and the Rimmel Apocalips  or Hourglass Opaque Rouge will both do the trick and come in great shades.

The Lip Satin
Lip satins tend to be more sheer and give a just-bittern, fresh effect to the lips. They work well for a daytime look, during the summer or for any younger girls. The YSL Glossy Satins and L'Oreal Paris Glam Shine Satin Splash both work equally well to cover the lips in a subtle, long lasting colour satin.

The Lip Butter
If you are already a big lip butter/balm fan then this is the easiest transition into becoming a red lip wearer. They're moisturising, comfortable but give a nice wash of colour to the lips. My favourites include the Revlon and Korres Lip Butters.

The Matte Lip Crayon
The matte lip crayon is bold like the lacquers, so if you want something that wows then this is the way to go! They're easy to apply, just like using a crayon and the matte/velvet formula helps it to last on the lips. My favs are the NARS Velvet Lip Crayons and Lord & Berry  20100 lipstick pencils, which are slightly glossier but work just the same.

The Lip Liner
You can wear a lip liner all over your lips to give your lips intense colour and a long lasting finish.

The Liquid Balm
It's something that is quite hard to find, but this one from Almay has come in so handy for when I want to wear a red tint with a slightly glossy finish but nothing to bold. I use this instead of li gloss, but a red gloss will also come in handy for layering over lipstick.

The Chubby Stick
The chubby stick is the perfect red lip for your handbag. They're moisturising, easy to use and you can choose from a range of different formulas. Clinique offers there Chubby Intense for a bold colour finish and their Original Chubby for a moisturising balm finish. Revlon and Bourjois also offer chubby lip balms in quite a wide range of shades.

Where else to find me :)

Lots of Love
