My Perfect Red Lip


  
A little disclaimer, I have really fair skin and hate the look of pink toned, orange toned reds with it. Blue is best and makes your teeth look so much whiter. The lipstick I'm using is, the Rimmel by Kate line, in shade 01, with the extreme lasting lip liner in Hot Diva  


Here is a closer look of the lip shade in the bullet. As you can see it has slight blue under tones. It could also be a close dupe for M.A.C's Russian Red and is a cheaper alternative. This lipstick has a fruity, sweet scent that some people might find offensive, but i personally like. I find the staying power to be pretty good, but I would recommend a lip liner for extra staying power. It is very pigmented and can be built up to an intense colour or just a slight stain on the lips. It has a semi glossy finish, defiantly is not matte, but not overly glossy. 


Here are some swatches, the lighting makes it look quite orange, but I have had requests to show more swatches. So i hope you enjoyed reading.
