Beauty Favorites: The Red Lip

It's not really a secret, but I love a good red lip. I sincerely think a red lip looks great on every person and for every occasion. It's bold enough for glamorous events, yet classic enough for every day.

Over time I've collected a lot of red lip products, and I have a few new favorites that I've been grabbing often. These are the most gorgeous shades of red!

I realize now that all of these look pretty much the same. However, they each have a different texture and finish on the lips. They are 100x more beautiful in person! You'll just have to trust me on this one. I do recommend using a lip liner, especially with a bold color such as red. A lip liner will keep your lipstick in place and help you get a more even edge. I didn't use lip liner in these photos and I can tell where I missed a little color on the edge of my lips. I'm relatively new to lip liner, so it's not a "must have" but I have noticed a better red lip when I do use it. This is one of my favorite youtube tutorials for achieving a flawless red lip.

All of these lipsticks can be purchased at Ulta, expect for the L.A. Girl Glazed Lip Paint, which I found at Kmart.
