My Favourite Red Lip From Maybelline

Of all of the things I have millions and trillions of in my beauty stash I can't say I have a great deal of red lipsticks that I actually wear that often. I think a red lip can be perfect for a job interview or glamorous event, or can even work to just add some personality to a really simple outfit. However, red lips can be high maintenence and require up keep and its quite hard to find that perfect shade which is why I've seldom went there until now...

The Maybelline Superstay 14 Hour Lipstick has brought me back on that one though. Its crazy to think I found this little beauty in one of those bargain bins in Boots for about £3 and its turned out to be one of my most worn lip products in recent times. When this says 14 hour wear it 100 percent means it and I actually struggle to get this off after a 9 hour shift in work. The great thing about this is that although it dries matte it doesn't feel particularly drying or chalky on the lips and actually keeps them pretty soft. The colour doesn't bleed and this has the most delicious smell to it almost like watermelon which is unusual for a lipstick to say the least. 

Another thing I love about this lipstick is the colour itself (non stop red) although I can't seem to find it anywhere online and am desperately hoping it hasn't been discontinued. Rather than a pinky toned red this one is bright pillarbox red and makes your lips really pop. This suits me so much better than the standard red lip as I'm more quirky than I am chic *sadly* and I like to be a little bit different. I think this is also a great variation on the standard red lip for during the summer times when everthing is that little bit more colourful and the formula of this is so good that I very much doubt even the hot weather will interfere much with the longevity of it. 

Overall, this is going down as being one of my most favourite lip products ever and I can't wait to buy some more of these to try out the different colours! These would be perfect for a holiday abroad when you want to have as low maintenaince make up as possible but also something that lasts well under the extremely hot weather conditions! 
Do you guys ever wear a red lip? Do you have any particular favourites?

  2. Wow! Wonderful price for a long lasting lipstick! And the color looks amazing on you! I can't say I really ever wear red lipstick. I just don't think it looks very flattering on me. I usually go for soft pink colors only.
