Fair skin with freckles and dark eyes. I love a red lipstick and if I go bold with my makeup, it's usually on my lips.
WHAT I USUALLY LOOK FOR IN A LIPSTICK:
Highly-pigmented with a non-drying formula and a matte finish. Not much to ask, right?
ROUGE G DE GUERLAIN LIPSTICK REVIEW:
Ok, firstly - can we talk about these cases? This is my new favourite handbag accessory and something I'm more than happy to whip out and start applying on the tube. Inside, you'll find two in-built mirrors, so you can check your application from several angles. I now think this should be compulsory for every lippy.
The lipstick itself is enriched with hyaluronic acid spheres, mango butter and jojoba oil to give it a creamy, moisturising formula, and it glides on like a dream. It has a shinier finish than I'd usually choose, but hey, summer 2018 is all about the gloss and it means there's no clinging to dry patches.
It has excellent staying power, too. With a bit of lip liner underneath, your colour will last all night, no matter how many espresso martinis you're sipping. From orange-red to hot pink, they have a shade for every makeup look, including a very extra 'pure gold', which can be worn alone or as a glittery top coat.
No exaggeration, this is everything you could want in a lipstick. Your collection isn't complete without one, or five.
These are our all-time favourite red lipsticks (including a £5 must-try)
