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?

  1. Looking sexy on no. 7’s pic!!!

  2. Paris B says:

    They all look gorgeous! That does it. I’m going to get Rouge Allure Dragon. Been seeing too many people look too good in it 😀

  3. #6 is my favourite. it looks fab on you :)

  4. Alison says:

    Totally in love with the Chanel Dragon..!

  5. rhamnousia says:

    I can;t believe that there are that many variations of one single colour..

  6. Madiha says:

    i like #6 the most! :)

  7. Danielle says:

    I love no.6! Looks fab on you :)

  8. Camille says:

    OMG, why does the most expensive have to be my absolute fave!!!??? Looks like I’ll be parting with £25 in the near future lol :) Really looking forward to week2!!

  9. Alla says:

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

  10. Gemma says:

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

  11. Hini says:

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

  12. Jenni says:

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

  13. em x says:

    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)

  14. Delfina says:

    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!

  15. Khushali says:

    LOVING no.6! I’ve gone on my own red lip spree, although i own only 3 reds! I’ve decided to be the red lip girl until i’m bored of it :)

    Rock on!!!

  16. Jess says:

    Number 6 is amazing on you… Chanel Rouge Allure Laque in Dragon all the way 😉

  17. megdalena says:

    #1 looks too orange. #6 is THE BEST!!!! Sooooooo pretty!!!

  18. sugar sugar says:

    i love #6 – Chanel Rouge Allure Laque in Dragon!!!! It’s just so gorgeous!

  19. dreamer says:

    number 6 it looks so good

  20. Patricia says:

    #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 😀

  21. Chanel Dragon in your 6th photo is my fav. Looks fantastic on you.

  22. Phoebe says:

    I wish that I had the confidence to wear reds! But I think it looks a little dressy on me… xxx

  23. nina says:

    The fifth one looks so good on you!

  24. Katrina says:

    I love the Chanel one, it looks great on you. I might have to get it when I go shopping for their spring collection!

  25. AS says:

    Rouge Allure Lacque in Red Dragon looks so elegant and polished on you! Shiny, blue based reds clearly work with your fair, cool skin tone.

  26. Liene says:

    I really like 5 and 7 on you.

  27. redtiger21 says:

    I am totally loving number 7. Siggghhhhh.

  28. muamontreal says:

    6 is made for you ! tailored for your alabaster skin …

    Caro xxx

  29. Esther says:

    Wow, you look gorgeous with red lips! You sure are rocking those shades. :p

  30. Janet T says:

    Number 6 – Chanel Dragon….. I need that so bad!

  31. Jasmine says:

    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.

  32. Dee says:

    I love 1 and 6 on you – it looks amazing!

  33. Bourriquette says:

    The Chanel Dragon looks gorgeous on you! Please, continue with more reds.

  34. Loda says:

    You carry off red with your colouring. No 6 in particular looks most gawgus.

  35. Anna says:

    I think that No. 6 looks amazing on you! I just checked and it’s the Chanel – isn’t that always the way!

  36. andie says:

    you look fantastic with red lips! #6 is my favorite i think

  37. Beth says:

    it has to be number 6. i’m a little bit in love with the chanel dragon

  38. Tina says:

    Seeing them all together side by side, I think 5 and 6 look the best on you – one’s more wearable, the other more dramatic!!! 😉

  39. ElenaB says:

    Pleaseee! do more of these series!! i am another red lippie junkie and i LOVE seeing this kind of swatches that compare colors! My fav, the Chanel one, which i am willing to buy if i can find it somewhere hidden in a store Y___Y
