My Top 5 Red Lipsticks

my top 5 red lipsticks
 Hi Lovelies!
I have many lipsticks but a shade I love the most has to be a red lipstick! I just love red lipsticks as they are so classy looking and remind me of retro movies and the beautiful Marilyn Monroe.
I am not usually picky on what type of red lipstick is such as the variations of red and of course if its matte or a shimmer finish, I love them all but I prefer the mattes during the autumn and winter months and the opposite with the spring and summer months.

 I have chosen these 5 above as they have to be my all time favourite red lipsticks I have used so far.
My blog is cruelty free but I do have 2 lipsticks in this list who are unfortunately not as they are mac and L'Oreal but I have had them over a year now.
Butter London Lippy in Macbeth ( TK Max Find)
I got this lovely liquid lipstick in my local TK Max for the bargain price of only £4 and I am so happy I found it as its the most glossy lipstick ever and isn't to bright either. Its a long lasting liquid lipstick and doesn't budge easily. I just love the name of butter London products and the name of this lipstick is just perfect, I love it.
L'Oreal Collection Exclusive by Blake True Red ( Mid price Range)
This has to be the most retro red lipstick that I own and such a great value for money at £7. This red is very classy and completes my makeup look in seconds. This lipstick is in a shimmer finish and lasts 6 hours before needing another application.
 MAC Russian Red (Premium Option)
I just love mac lipsticks and this has to be my favourite mac lipstick so far as its a gorgeous bluish red shade and in a lovely shimmer finish. This lipstick maybe a bit on the expensive side but for a treat its a nice choice if you like red lipsticks.
Makeup Revolution Lady ( the £1 bargain)
I love finding fabulous bargains and lady is one of them, at only £1 its a bargain as its a lovely bright red and has an amazing staying power of 4 hours.
Barry M Loud mouth in Tease ( Vegan Option)
This lipstick is very similar to lip gloss in the way it applies but the colour payoff is very intense and such a beautiful red. A little bit goes a long way with this lipstick and is a non messy formula and non greasy too.

What is your favourite Red Lipstick?
