Red Lips That Are To DIE For!

Everyone needs a good red lip. Red lips are classic and can be worn year round. The good thing about red lippies is that no two reds are the exact same. Which means, you can NEVER have too many reds. With that being said, get into a review of some of my favorite red lippies!

Wet n Wild Beauty MegaLast Lip Color in Stoplight Red, $1.99

This was one of the first lip colors I purchased from Wet n Wild and I have been in love ever since. I purchased it after doing some research online and finding an article saying that this particular lip color was a dupe of MAC Ruby Woo…and it is. However, it is not matte like Ruby Woo. It has a more satin finish, which I LOVE! This shade of red is more of a true red and that is what I love about it. It has awesome staying power, it barely fades after drinking or a light meal. If I had to choose, this would probably be my second favorite red.

My Beauty Addiction Luxury Matte Lipstick in Salsa, $9.50

Ooo la la! I so love this red! I saw it on a model on MBA’s IG page and had to have it!  To see my full review of this lippie, click here.

MAC Lipstick in MAC Red, $17.00
Soooo this is my GO TO RED! I wear this lipstick at least three times a week! It is super moisturizing and the perfect red for summer or winter. It has a very smooth, satiny application. The pigment in this lip color is very rich. The only downfall to this lippie is that it fades completely after eating. Bummer….but, it doesn’t stop this from being my favorite!

Julep Full Coverage Lip Crayon in Cardinal Red, $20.00 

I received this lip crayon in my first Julep subscription box. I tried it on and fell in love. It has a very smooth application and the color for this one is also very rich. I don’t wear this color very often because I forgot I had it, but, I will be wearing it much more often now that I have rediscovered it!

NYX Extra Creamy Round Lipstick in Snow White, $4.00

I bought this lipstick from Target last weekend and am I glad I did! For this lipstick to only be $4, the quality is amazing! I applied this lipstick around 7 AM, ate lunch around 12:30 or 1, and the lipstick had barely faded. It looked almost as good as it did when I applied it that morning (head over to my Instagram (@jewellslipsandtips) to see a picture). This is a slightly deeper red, which makes it perfect for the cooler months. I will definitely wear this lippie out this winter!

My Beauty Addiction Fall Lippie Review + Swatches!!

Earlier this year, I was introduced to the wonder that is My Beauty Addiction (MBA). They sell a variety of beauty products, such as lipsticks, lip glazes, lip scrubs, eyeshadows, lashes, make up brushes. You name it, they more than likely sell it! I am a HUGE fan of all of their lipsticks. The quality is amazing, the color selection is vast, and the prices are super affordable! Also, it’s a huge bonus that their products are handmade and they even offer samples of their lippies and eyeshadows. So, what’s not to love! They also sell other brands on their site, such as LA Girl Cosmetics. Get into my most recent lipstick purchase below!

LA Girl Matte Velvet Lipstick in Relentless, $4.00
 This is the second LA Girl lippie I have purchased from MBA. The color is really pretty. However, I think it takes quite a few layers to get the opacity that I prefer. Also, this product really doesn’t have much staying power. It lasts for a couple of hours before it starts to fade…that’s without eating or drinking. So, I would really only recommend wearing this if you are just running out to the grocery store or something quick.

MBA Luxury Matte Lipstick in Salsa, $9.50
 OMG this color is EVERYTHING! Salsa is a warm red; the perfect red, fall lipstick. The color payoff is amazing! Although this is a matte formula, it is actually very moisturizing in comparison to other matte formulas. It glides on very smooth and isn’t patchy once applied to the lips. Definitely another go to red for me! I highly recommend this lipstick to anybody looking for the perfect go to red!

MBA Color Rich Lipstick in Violetta, $5.50
I am a huge fan of the color rich lipsticks and have been since I first started purchasing from MBA. This is the first time I purchased lipstick from MBA in the jar formula. Normally I purchase their lipstick in the tube. However, I wanted to try the jars because the color payoff is a little richer when I apply from the jar versus the tube. But, that is just my opinion. Anyway, Violetta is the perfect shade of purple for an evening out when you are not trying to be super bold with your lips. It is described as “a deep, red purple with a shimmer” on the website and that is the perfect description for the color.

MBA Sugar Babies Jojoba Lip Glaze in Brown Sugar, $5.50

This is my first time trying the lip glazes and I am trying to figure out why I have waited so long. I am usually not a huge fan of super glossy lipsticks, so maybe that’s why I never tried it. However, this formula is glossy, but it’s not extremely shiny. It’s moisturizing and it isn’t sticky. An added bonus, it tastes like sugar! YUM! The only issue you will run into with this lip glaze is trying not to lick it off your lips!  

Which of these lippies will you be trying out?
