6 Red Lipsticks to Get Angelina Jolie’s 2012 Golden Globes Red Lip


The real deal!

6 Red Lipsticks to Get Angelina Jolie’s 2012 Golden Globes Red Lip

Angelina Jolie’s red lips was one of the most talked about beauty looks from this year’s Golden Globes.  I don’t know what she wore, and while I’ve attempted to find out, I haven’t had any luck yet!  Her lip looked anywhere from pinky-red to red-coral to red, but it never looked too orange.  I saw it both with more of a matte/satin finish as well as a glossier look (perhaps recent reapplication?).

I know that Jolie has used Chantecaille in the past, and though I don’t own much from the range, possible shades within the brand would be Amaryllis Lip Chic, Azalea Lipstick, or Cassia Lipstick.

  • Giorgio Armani #406 — deep blue-based red; slightly darker than what was worn
  • Guerlain Liu — rich blue-based red with a glossy shine; bluer than what was worn
  • Chanel Cambon — slightly orange-toned red; needs a teeniest bit more blue to be similar
  • Guerlain Rouge Sensuel — almost red-coral with a subtle gold shimmer; lighter, has gold shimmer compared to what was worn
  • MAC Perpetual Flame — pinky-red with a creamy finish; slightly pinker than what was worn
  • NARS Flamenco — soft watermelon red; less opaque, less red

And as a bonus, contributor Damaris has a Brazilian option–O Boticario #330 Lipstick (R$ 12,90).

NYX Violetta Eyeshadow ($5.00 for 0.088 oz.) is a gold shimmered pink-purple with a satiny sheen. The color payoff is good, so it turns out mostly opaque, but the shimmer is more sparkled on top than it is truly embedded with the color, so it does result in some fall out. It reminded me a little of MAC Half-Wild when really sheered out, though darker. Urban Decay Purple Haze is fairly similar with a matte finish and more purple in it.

Because it is a brighter purple, despite the red undertones, it should translate into a bruise on the lid, though you’ll want to be careful on what you pair it with.  The texture is a little powdery with the loose sparkle adding a slight grittiness to the overall feel.  I’m not keen on this type of finish, because it is prone to fall out.  If you like the effect, I recommend using a sticker (more like a cream) base, and then press the product on, rather than sweeping or tapping.  Like other NYX eyeshadows, it doesn’t hold up all day on its own (looks a bit faded, slightly creased after six hours) but is better over a primer (no fading or creasing but there was continued fall out).

Chanel Kensington Rouge Allure Lipstick

Chanel Kensington Rouge Allure Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “bold and brilliant fuchsia.” The color is inspired by “one of London’s most posh shopping districts.” It is a vibrant pink with blue undertones. The coverage is mostly opaque, and the finish has a lovely natural shine but still looks creamy and lush on the lips. This is a lipstick that really looks beautiful when worn; it just has that really cushiony look, where lips look like pouty pillows.

It’s not a particularly unique color–there are numerous bright pink hues to choose from–but the comfortable wear, five-hour wear, and how it keeps lips moisturized during wear, make it a good pink to choose. MAC Pink Pigeon is brighter, more magenta. MAC Love Forever is more blue-based, so it appears almost purplish in comparison. NARS Schiap is brighter, slightly darker. Milani Rose Hip is brighter. It has a similar look to MAC Florida.
