Red lips are typically very high maintenance due to the need to be precise with the application for a polished effect. That’s why I love the reds from the Revlon Lip Butter collection. I picked up Fig Jam and Red Velvet which are both matte finishes. The formula is moisturising like a lip balm and the application is easy peasy and completely fuss-free. Fig Jam leans toward a brownish red and very on trend with Marsala being named Pantone’s Colour Of The Year 2015, whilst Red Velvet is a bolder hue exuding an effortlessly sexy lip.
Sephora’s Cream Lip Stain in 01 Always Red is the perfect beginner matte red for a night out. Granted, the application of this product requires more care then swiping on a tinted lip balm. Here’s a tip: use a lip brush dipped in the product for more control to line the lips first, then continue the application with the wand. Once it’s on, it’s pretty much fuss-free, not to mention, it feels very comfortable on the lips.
