Review: Red Lips

Monday, February 02, 2015

I always thought I couldn't pull off red lips but I think it's time I gave it a try.  I have dry, chapped lips that tend to peel, so I don't wear lipstick that much in general.  I've been trying to heal my lips with exfoliation and chapstick, and look for lipsticks that don't dry me out.  There are so many red lip products out there.  I did some research and decided on these two:

Nars : Red Lizard - a matte red lipstick
Yves Saint Laurent : 9 rouge laque - glossy stain 

There are plenty of reviews on these two products, so I just wanted to show the packaging and what it looks like on me.  Overall, I'm really happy with my first red lip products.

The red lizard is very flattering and not too bold and bright.   It's a true red color that didn't dry out my lips and was long lasting.

The YSL gloss I got is a collectors - limited edition gold tube - online only.  So pretty!  There are also available in the original gold with black bottom tube.  It also glides on smoothly and doesn't dry out my lips.  A little bit goes a long way.  I just did a swipe on my top and bottom lips in the pictures below, and it gives my lips a rosy color.  You can brush on more if you want bolder, juicier lips.
