Ravishing Red

As a follow up to my “Green with Envy” post, I thought I would do a feature on my favourite red products! When I think of the colour red, it brings images of power, romance and sensuality. Here are a few of my favourite products in vivid rosy hues.

First on the list is a MAC Matte Lipstick in Russian Red. This is an amazing lipstick, it’s definitely a newer favourite of mine, but I love it! It lasts such a long time because of the matte texture, and the colour is simply to die for. I love wearing this with a glossy winged eyeliner and porcelain skin. My only qualm is that it can be a little drying.

When i need a lick of colour that is also super moisturising, I opt for Revlon Lip Butter in Candy Apple. This bright, vibrant red shade on the lips has enough glossy goodness to keep my lips in tip top shape, while still giving me a great colour injection.

This red is O.P.I. Danke Shiny Red, and I think it is my favourite red nail polish. It’s has such a great amount of shine, and is the perfect shade. It’s not quite as opaque as it could be, but I think that it is still an awesome nail polish.

I picked up this M.A.C. Blush ‘Fever’ from BuyInvite a while ago for only about $10. It’s a great autumn/winter blush because it gives such a rosy maroon glow. It makes you look like you’ve just come in from the cold :3

Another great product is Rimmel London Exaggerate Full Colour Lip Liner. This is my go to cherry red colour for lining the lips.

One of the props I used is my favourite gift from my boyfriend when he went to Europe. It’s a hand painted wooden horse from Sweden, and it’s one of my favourite things in the world. He looked forever to get me a present from Sweden because my grandfather came from there.

Two great reads that just happen to have red covers. Have you read these two?

I couldn’t do a post about my favourite red things without including Coca Cola! It’s a love-hate relationship of course. Delicious…but deadly :(

I hope you enjoyed this post! I love collections of like colours being together.
