It is very rare you will see me in a red lip, let alone a bright red lip. This buy was purely because Tanya Burr used it on Millie Mackintosh in her tutorial and I mean Tanya can sell ice to eskimo, and as I am weak I was instantly sold, so the next day I popped out and snapped it up. I have been looking for a red lipstick for Autumn and the christmas season, but it is actually a lot harder than it seems to find the perfect one.
I'll start with the packaging, I think it is actually pretty nice for the price. Plain red with Kate's signature on it I mean it isn't offence and seems pretty sturdy but I made the massive fail of buying mine in superdrug where they put those hideous stickers all over them, so now I have part of a bar code stuck on the tube grr. This lipstick is what I would call as true 'ruby red' and the more I look at these photos the more I realise how perfect it will be nearer to Christmas. This lipstick is surprisingly creamy considering it is supposed to be matte, I was expecting it to be like Mac's Ruby Woo and Please me both of which I find too matte on me and always need a bit of gloss on top. I would actually classify this as semi-matte but I really like the formula I personally think red lipsticks always look better with a slight glossy sheen to them. One thing that bugs me about this lipstick the over powering powdery smell, it smells very similar to L'oreal's scent and is a little granny.
Over all I really like this lipstick and for the price I really can't complain. As with all red lipsticks it does smudge and bleed a little after a while so I will probably buy Mac's brick lipliner to help this. I literally can't wait for the christmas reason to arrive so I can wear this with a smokey gold eye and big eyelashes! Have you got this? What do you think of the colour?
P.s my skin isn't looking great in these photos it had been a stressful week and my skin suffered sorry for subjecting you to this haha!
