I’ve been itching to find a red lipstick to add to my arsenal (because I feel no makeup collection is complete without at least one red lipstick), so I’ve been eyeing Buxom Scoundrel. I’ve read several reviews on it, and it seems to combine everything I desire in lip color: opacity, shine, and moisture! I can’t wait to get my hands on it!

I have a few that I really love.

My Red of Reds is Be A Bombshell’s lipgloss in Hot Mess. I also really love BAB’s lipgloss in Vixen (a darker, more sparkly red).

My other big reds are an accidental theme. Red Velvet Velvetines by Lime Crime is a good matte lipgloss; Red Velvet Lip Butter by Revlon is my every day red lippie; and Red Velvet Butter Lip Balm by NYX is the one I wear most often at home for a little color and some moisturizing.

Maybelline Red Revival. It’s not perfect, but it’s the only one currently on the market I feel isn’t too pink, too orange, etc… I’ve had several over the years by Shiseido, L’Oréal, & Borghese, and I have yet to find replacements…

I love red lipstick. I’m not sure I could pick one because it drastically depends on my mood. My fave’s in no order are: MAC Russian Red, MAC Lady Danger, Bite Beauty Rouge, Clinique Chubby Stick in Mighty Maraschino, OCC Lip Tar in NSFW and most recently I’m super impressed with Elf’s Matte Lip Color in Rich Red. If I included my ‘almost red’ pinks and burgundies my list would be much longer. I could never choose just one!

YSL Glossy Stain in 20! It is AMAZING-definitely a HG product for me. It’s cool toned but leans quite neutral on me. I really loved the shade of Hourglass’ Icon Liquid lipstick, but unfortunately it only lasts about an hour in the center of my lips and wears away unevenly. If the formula was better I’d definitely call Icon a power red for me, as well.

Kat Von D Underage Red, Illamasqua Box, MAC Marcel Wanders Gesina, NARS Dragon Girl, MAC Ruby Woo, MAC RiRi Woo, MAC Ronnie Red. There’s probably more but that’s the main “strong red lipstick” arsenal, LOL. I also have a “Saturday red” category (the red lipstick you put on Saturday to go out and do errands) but that’s for another time!
