Thanksgiving post from Trickling Beauty!

This Thanksgiving post is from Siun of Trickling Beauty!  Siun has a killer eye for gorgeous pieces of jewellery and I often find myself wishing she was my personal shopper....  We are kindred souls as we both love to dye our hair and Siun recently went from blonde to brunette and it looks stunning on her.  And girlfriend can rock a red lip like nobody else as you'll see in this post and today she's giving thanks for fabulous red lippies. 

With the festive season now officially upon us, I couldn't not write about red lips when Karen asked me to guest post for her.  I have built up quite the collection, picking up both high end and pharmacy brands and giving them a whirl.  Below is a round-up of my favourites, ones that are comfortable, glamorous and perk up my pale pallor.

Left to right are Natural Collection's Moisture Shine in Crimson, Giorgio Armani Rouge Hydratant in 200, Mac's Russian Red and Kate Moss for Rimmel in 01.

I applied two coats of every shade with this eyeliner brush that comes free with the brilliant Maybelline gel liner.

Giorgio Armani Rouge Hydratant in 200
First up is my absolute favourite, it's luxurious, comfortable and stays put.  It is, of course, the most expensive one, Giorgio Armani's 200.  It costs about €26 and if I were to buy any red lippie again, this would be it.  It does help that the packaging is absolutely slick.

Kate Moss - Rimmel 01
Next up is Kate Moss' red offering from her first collection with Rimmel.  It's not shiny but not matte either and it has a lovely depth to the colour.  You can expect to pay about €8 for this one.  Bargain for a real beauty.

Mac Russian Red
Next up is Mac's cult classic, Russian Red.  I love the shade but the matte texture can be a little drying.  It's a high maintenance but beautiful, like any good woman!  This one is about €18.

Natural Collection's Moisture Shine in Crimson
Lastly, the Natural Collection offering.  It's under €5, the most sheer of the pack but with a lovely cherry red sheen.

What's your favourite red lippie?



  1. Beautiful really like the Armani on you!prep is the key it seems with a redlip but they are a lotta upkeep on a night out!√°ine

  2. I found my perfect red in Sephora. It's from their own range, and I adore it! I have a very red complexion, so red lips can look a bit odd on me, but this is a great one. Amazing staying power too! I think it's Red 04. Ohh... now I want to go to Sephora. Boo.

  3. Love red lippie! I got the mammy a fab red ,marilyn,from the Dior grand bal collection,the packaging is divine.

  4. Yapp, the Giorgio Armani is expensive but the colour.. Perfect :)
