A pop of red is such a classic, and theres no denying the power of a bold lipstick. Perfect for both day and night, you can't go wrong with a simple eye and striking lip for faultless, easy make-up. However at the same token, it can be really hard to find that perfect red and with the options being endless, the task becomes so much more difficult.
I seem to have the mentality that it's okay to buy new make-up all the time because if its not for personal use - its great for my make-up artist kit. This sadly means I often neglect products that I adore as I try out new ones and experiment with numerous shades and brands. Over the festive period, I rediscovered an absolutely beautiful red which I was truly besotted with when I first bought it and the best part? its only £1.
This is a sort of sister post to the one I did on Rouge Rose Petale, where I posted my Christmas Day make-up and discussed the budget friendly products I used. Although I felt this is such a great product that it needed a mention over here too..
Here is the look:
The lighting of the image really brings out the pink tones of the colour but from the swatches below you can see the pigment much clearer.
The lipstick causing all this fuss - is by MUA and is in the lovely shade 13.
It is a very rich, deep based red which I would say has a vibrant berry undertone making it perfect for A/W. When applied generously, the colour pay off is exactly as you see in the bullet, but with lip balm and just small dabs, this will allow a very soft hint of red to brighten up a daytime appropriate look. The formulation is creamy, moisturising and so easy to work with - allowing general fuss free touch ups and application. The value for money is undeniable and I really feel you cant go wrong with this colour whatever skin tone or whatever budget you are on.. for £1 its an absolute steal!
