US vintage lover and author Liz Goldwyn recently revealed on Twitter a few of her current favourite lipsticks. MAC's So Chaud happened to be one that I own. Described as an Intense reddish-orange, this product it is matte and intensely colour rich. On me, I don't see a lot of 'red' but quite a lot of orange! A shade I'm not used to wearing but one I could certainly grow to love ;p
I'd not paid much attention to By Terry's Rouge Terrybly Age-Defence Lipstick in shade 204 Narcotic Sienna until I discovered it was a dark berry red, rather than a brown red I'd assumed it to be. By Terry lipsticks are heavenly... but be gentle when applying (they are so incredibly creamy!) and use a lip liner!
When I bought Nars' China Red lip liner a while back, I imagined it would be a bright red ... wrong... it turned out to be a dark berry. A lovely product, glides on well and blends nicely - great for my vampy evening shades! My only word of advice is if you are looking for a bright red...do not be fooled by this products name ;p
Illamasqua's Salacious lipstick is a matt raspberry red. Comes up quite pink on me, which is not my usual choice. Having said that, it's still a striking shade and it is certainly starting to grow on me...
