Hello Vamps & Reds


Red and dark vampy lippies really aren't my thing. I like the more au naturale look and when you're rocking a red lip, thats kinda hard to manage haha. But change is good and I kinda like to switch things up every now and then and end up reaching for these two tubes of awesomeness!


1. Rimmels Lasting Finish Lipstick in Alarm 170- More of a bright but classic red with excellent pigmentation. It doesn't require many coats, apply a single layer and you're good to go! Alarm doesn't feather or bleed, can be blotted and turned into a lovely bright stain that brightens up the complexion.This lippie applies like a dream and has a good staying power, 3-4 hours easily I'd say with a semi-matte finish.

2. Maybelline's Moisture Extreme Lipstick in Real Raisin 230-Absolutely divine color with a semi-matte finish, what you see in the tube is the color you get on your lips. Suits my Asian skin tone really well and I can see it working for both color and warmer toned skins. The texture is extremely soft and moisturizing but this doesn't end up bleeding or feathering. The lasting power is that of a typical lipstick but it fades wonderfully after you've had food/drinks so there isn't a need for constant touch ups.

In the picture above I'm wearing a single coat of Real Raisin. How amazing is that! Both these lippies are easily available in Pakistan and internationally, so if you want some great reds for a bargain, I'd recommend these highly!

Price-
PKR 750-850

  1. I bought Rimmels Kate lipstick in 107, it's a very vampy shade. I thought it'd be perfect for this season but I ended up not getting much use out of it as I always the shade doesn't suit me well. These two look a lot more wearable. :) Also you look very pretty. :)

  9. I'm definitely a big fan of bold lips but I can only pull it off on nights out. I don't feel comfy wearing it casually yet. So jealous that you're able to pull this off, hun.
