Red Lips

Or at least, as red as I dare. I’m so lipstick shy, someone recommend me some cheap but decent colours to experiment with!

The lipstick I’m wearing today is Barcelona Red by MAC,
I usually stick to Angel and Blankety which are also MAC colours. Now we’re in to sunnier days (not that you’d know it, looking out the window this morning) I feel like I want to branch out.



Oh hey….massive bags under my eyes. I need SLEEP!

  1. I love this colour on you. I never wear any bright colours either I always think they look funny on me but my friends tell me its just because I am not used to it.

  2. beautiful color- you could use some coral too, it would match your skin color beautifully. I love Lancome’s Orange Sari & you can find it for a low price on ebay πŸ™‚

  3. Barcelona Red looks great on your lips, it’s a soft red shade that never is “too much”.
    It looks a bit similar to MAC Viva Glam Cyndi.
    You look great today! I wish you a happy day!

  4. I had to laugh at your comment on my blog. Of course I would not hate you cos you swear a lot. I would hate to swear myself I cannot stand the way it sounds. My hubby swears and I tell him off lol xx

  5. Have a look at Boots Natural Collection for cheap, nice lippies. I have Cherry Red which is a fab shade and I think they were on 3 for Β£5 last time – for that price you can’t go wrong!

    Thank you SO much for the lovely card and present. You are such a sweetheart.


  6. great colour – I love coral at the mo – I wear Pretty Please lipstick by Collection 2000. πŸ™‚

  12. Love red lipstick, don’t be afraid to go with a bold lip it can make you feel so empowered xoxo

  16. I think red can suit everyone but it’s just a case of finding the red that suits you, which you have done really well.


  17. This really suits you. xx

  18. Oooh I love this lippie on you! I’d definately try Avon if you have a local rep or you can always order online. They have a wide range of colours, they’re really moisturising and each month a different range is on offer so you can normally get them for around Β£4 each.

  19. it suits you it really does. the red goes great with your skin tone πŸ™‚

  20. im really lipstick shy too!! trying to get more of a nerve for it this summer πŸ™‚ really want coral lips! x

  21. Thats lovely, it really suits you. I’ve not been to MAC in ages, trying to behave! x

  22. It looks great on you! I recently bought my first ever red lipstick… those it still has some pinky undertones. I’m relieved that it appears to suit me, as I hate wasting money!

  23. Such a pretty color on you!

  24. I have very big eyebags too πŸ™

  25. Rimmel has some great shades and they’re really cheap so you can rally experiment. I’m trying out the bubble pink look just now (although I should really grow up!!)


  26. This colour looks great on you! πŸ™‚

  27. I love the colour of the lipstick. Red lips always add some glamour! You look great.

  31. this is the perfect shade of red for you. I love it.


  32. You are stunning, I’m completely the same I’m daring myself to try some newer colours for s/s πŸ™‚ The colour is so pretty xxxx

  33. Hey lovely,
    Cant recomend lipstick as I rarely wear it, usually just lip gloss for me but that colour really suits you. xx

  34. no no forget about cheap lipsticks when you buy a lipstick you want to find one that you’ll want to wear always. so i would highly recommend Chanel’s Hydrating CrΓ¨me Lip. or Georgio Armani. spend a afternoon in Selfridges trying a few shades on. have fun!

  35. I love this color, red but not too bright, it’s a must-try!


  36. D.

  41. Hello gorgeous! I love this colour on you πŸ™‚ I am a big fan of the Dainty Doll, lipsticks, the colours are gorgeous and do last well but they are expensive. To experiment with colours, definitely go for natural collection, they don’t last very well but they’re moisturising and pretty colours too πŸ™‚

  42. You can really pull off that shade of red. Looks absolutly gorgeous.


  43. Your hair looks gorgeous! I need to invest in some lipsticks too! I’m a bit shy around colour on my lips, I’m not sure I can rock it

  44. lol, thats not very red for lipstick at all, but it is a very pretty shade πŸ™‚

  45. That colour is perfect on you love. A nice shade of red without being too strong for your colouring. Great! x

  46. Viv

  48. Your skin looks amazing! And this color is soooo good on you. Beautiful.


  49. this is an awesome color, gives life! πŸ˜€

  50. you look beautiful, your skin is so flawless! i love the lipstick colour. xx

  51. I like the lipstick AND the cool side-pony tail. By the way, those bags are mere accessorystyle bags. Mine are industrial bin bags!!! πŸ˜‰

    I tagged you by the way for a blog post… πŸ™‚

  52. Perfect shad of read.,..with the bluish understones (you know what I mean, you can’t see the blue but some reds have more orange or pink).
