Red Lip Look

With the red lip becoming more and more popular i thought i would share my favorite and inexpensive lipstick and lipgloss.

Both of these can be worn lightly, blended in for a natural daytime look or worn normally and/or layered for a night time look.

Firstly is one by Mua - Make up Academy which is found in Superdrug and is only £1.

 The packaging is quite sturdy and the colour can been seen easily at the bottom of the tube which is great for finding in a hurry.


As for the lipstick, it has good pigmentation and is moisturising.
The colour is a pink berry red and has a subtle gold shimmer.

I normally wear it blended in if i want a slightly more natural look, it can work as a stain this way leaving a sheer wash of colour.

It is definitely not what you would expect for such a cheap lipstick but it means you can buy as many
 as you want without feeling guilty.

The lipgloss is Rouge Democratic 06 by Bourjois. It is a sheer, buildable, slightly shimmery pink toned red.

It has a balm like texture and is quite long lasting. Perfect to wear day or night. Rouge Democratic
(Can also be found in Boots and Superdrug)
I actually really like the packaging, it is slim and transparent.
