Red Lip Round Up, Week 1

Posted by Lipglossiping On January - 17 - 2011

One full week of Red Lips though it seems like much longer!

The full list of reds and a comparison swatch:

1. NYX Hot Red Jumbo Lip Pencil

2. MAC Cockney

3. MAC Russian Red

4. RMK Irresistible Lips in Red #29

5. Clarins Rouge Prodige Fusion Red

6. Chanel Rouge Allure Laque in Dragon

7. Urban Decay Revolution

Click on the links above to see each lipstick in it’s individual post with a shot of how it looks on my lips.

Incase you’re curious… when it came to wiping the swatches off my arm with a makeup remover wipe about 2 minutes after I’d applied… #1 and #5 left striking stains behind so I’d recommend these two for particularly long-wear.

Which red is your favourite so far – should we crack on with week 2 and some more red-lipped readers?

    I like 6th, the Chanel one, more potent colour, but others are nice too, not a big difference to be honest

    Definitely #6. It just looks so rich and luxurious.

    Definitely #5, you look radiant.
    #6 may be dashing, but it isn’t very subtle, there is no balance.

    The NYX looks a bargain in this company. AND you say it’s a stayer. Must check this out.

    okay i have to admit my fav on you is the Chanel one, looks like we all have expensive taste :-)

    still liking 3, 6 and 7 though but Mr M will not be impressed at spending so much on a lipstick(boys just do not understand that these things ARE imortant)

    On you my favourites are definitely n. 1 (NYX) and n. 6 (Chanel Dragon). Really perfect for you! Some of the others look a tiny bit too pink/blue for my taste, but it could be hte photo/lighting. Anyway, you look great with red!
    I’ll definitely check the Dragon for myself too!

    #5 (Clarins) has just the slightest tint of brown in there, doesn’t it? At least it looks like that. Very wearable daytime red, I think. Of course the Chanel one is the way to go if you’re going to be all bang-pow-whoosh :D

    I like 1, 5 and 6.
    1 – The NYX is more matte and has a warmth to it that really brings out your eyes ….

    5 – More toned down, more everyday and very approachable

    6 – It has SO much depth as a red.
