Lots of events are happening this fortnight for me that are going to warrant a red lip. From Lunar New Year to one-year-anniversary celebrations with my boyfriend, to Valentines and then my birthday. I wanted to share the red lipsticks up for consideration for each event… Not counting the fact that I am wearing bold lips most days of the week at the moment!!
For Lunar New Year which has already passed, you could technically wear any red. However, I associate it with classic red or slightly orangey tones, nothing that could be considered too pink or berry, so I took out Rimmel Lasting Finish in 111 Kiss of Life.
My anniversary plans with my boyfriend are actually split across two days due to time constraints – first up a meal that is going to need a hard-wearing lipstick, then a cinema trip the next day. I’m planning to wear Lottie London’s Glitter Switch in Ravenous, which isn’t as boldly glittery as the original Ciate Glitter Flip, but a more accessible option.
I originally popped it in this post thinking it was a bold red, but turns out it’s a bold berry with pink shimmer more like metallic sheen than full glitter. It’s cute and romantic anyway despite the name so I can’t wait to wear it then. A full review will come in the next few months maybe, haha!
For our cinema trip, and probably for Valentines’ too, I’ll be wearing Smashbox’s Legendary. For Valentine’s Day, I actually have no plans with the boyfriend just because our anniversary is so close. I’ll just be going to lectures and the gym afterwards, and maybe picking up a chocolate muffin for the boyf, so I’d like something comfortable and cute.
Lastly, for my own birthday, I’ll be wearing NARS Dragon Girl, of course!! I have no plans for the day yet but it’ll probably involve eating food and spending the day with my uni friends as I have no lectures that day!
What red lip will you be sporting this February?
Until next time,
