I am always on the look out for a good red lip colour. I have tried the famous MAC ruby woo but found it wasn’t very flattering against my pale skintone and other brands haven’t quite fitted the bill either. Recently I picked up the limited edition ‘Truly Mattely Deeply’ matt lipgloss from Sleek. I actually reviewed it in the pink shade and thought the red looked like it could be perfect for me! I would definitely say this is a lot more wearable than the pink version, for a start it is more forgiving on any dry patches! The colour also goes on much more smoothly and it provides a fully opaque matt finish which doesn’t feel heavy or ‘caked’ on. It does dry very quickly so it can take a bit of time getting used too it but I love the shade, it is the perfect orange red and just brightens my whole complexion. It has a real glam feel to it and I am still waiting to be brave enough to wear it out, I think it will look fab with a geometric print midi dress! I think you can still pick these up on the Sleek counter in your local Superdrug as they are now no longer on the Sleek website which is a shame as I loved these lipglosses, if you know of any other brands that have similar lip products let me know!
What do you think of this bold red lip look?
Do you have any red lipstick recommendations for me?
