By Terry Rouge Delectation Intensive Hydra Plump Lipstick - 14 Exquisite Cherry

By Terry's Rouge Delectation Intensive Hydra Plump Lipstick in 14 Exquisite Cherry is stunning and I have welcomed it with open arms (or shall I say lips) into my red lipstick collection. On recommendation from a very beautiful Twitter friend, I bought this lipstick before leaving London and am very glad I did. I have since discovered that this product has been discontinued which is a massive shame.... and now back in Oz...I wish I'd stocked up.

Kiko : Make Up Milano - Precision Lip Pencil - 306

Another impressive product from Kiko : Make Up Milano. Lip pencil 306 is a vibrant red and the quality is comparable to MAC. I bought several of these liners and each is equally creamy, long wearing and pigment rich - an absolute bargain for 4 Euros!

Another fantastic lipstick by Kiko : Make Up Milano, Velvet Mat Lipstick in 606. Darker red than 605, but equally beautiful. Great on the lips and excellent value for money.

Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture - 14 Rouge Feu

YSL's rouge Couture lipsticks never disappoint. Creamy, moisturising and pigment rich, these rate highly on my all time favourite lipstick list. 14 Rouge Feu is a vibrant red that would suit a range of skin tones and looks stunning on.
I would however, recommend wearing a lip liner, it helps with longevity and prevents feathering. I wear my trusted clear liner and it works a treat!

Christian Dior Lady Dior Palette

Christian Dior's 'Lady Dior' palette is a limited edition creation from the Dior house and is magnificent. I can't actually bring myself to use any of these Dior palettes, but to look at and admire is another thing ;p

Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet Lip Colour - 38 La Fascinante

I have been waiting for months for Chanel's Rouge Allure Velvet lip colour and was delighted to see it in store here in Berlin. In typical Miss Claret style I went for the most red shade, number 38 - La Fascinante. Not quite as matte as I thought it would be, but a lovely cherry red nonetheless.

Kiko : Make Up Milano - Velvet Mat Lipstick - 605

I am currently in Berlin and have just discovered an amazing make up brand called Kiko : Make Up Milano. Kiko's products are very reasonably priced and the selection is good - something for everyone! I purchased a velvet mat lipstick in colour 605 (an orange red coral) and was very impressed. The lipstick is made in Italy, is a velvet matte formula, pigment rich and blends like a dream. Unlike a lot of matte lipsticks, I found this this particular product to be very moisturising. Kiko have an excellent range of colours and having worn this product the last few days, I will be buying the other reds I saw. If you are lucky enough to get your hands on this brand, I'd certainly recommend checking it out.
