Its that time of year again, when we all bring out our festive red lip. I'm a big fan of a bit of rouge, HOWEVER, if you have read my Beauty Blunders post over on thenellybean blog. Then you will know the struggle I have had finding the perfect product to create my look.

I have tried out so many red lip products, but today I am reviewing FIVE, including; Rimmel, Tanya Burr, Ted Baker, NYX, and MUA-a real mix of Highstreet and High End products at a variety of prices, to help you make the best choice.

RIMMEL KATE MOSS-107
This is the most berry tone of all the lipsticks. Its the one I've had the longest out of all the products and is an oldy but a goody. Its berry tone is perfect with a gold smokey eye for an evening look. Its not too wet looking but not matte either. It does transfer which is a shame but to stop it bleeding you can apply some lip liner.


MUA VELVET MATTE
This is a matte finish lipstick-its come up very berry toned in the picture but its much more red on. I LOVE this lipstick, but it does go patchy after a while. It applies wet and then dries matte. On the packaging it suggests that this is long lasting but when I put it up against the Ted Baker lip its didn't last as long. It one of those that stains the outside of you lip but the center goes patchy and flaky. If you keep applying it then you're fine but if you cant keep applying then maybe this isn't the product for you!


TANYA BURR COSMETICS-Wilde Safari
This is a glossy finish lipstick. Its moisturising which I love as chapped lips are something I am prone to this time of year and I dont need a lippy making it any worse. However the issue I have with this product is its transfer. It moves off the lips very easily and can smudge-a god lip liner does help with longevity, but its definitely something to look out for. This is perfect for a christmas party with glittery gold shadow and a great highlight on the cheek.


NYX-12
Another matte product that has an almost chalky consistency. Its so easy to apply and doesnt smudge easily which I L O V E. It does go patchy after a couple of hours and make your lips a little dry, but its not as cakey as the MUA product. Its one to have in your pocket to top up if you want a slightly darker matte shade.


TED BAKER 
My favorite red lip product at the moment. This I tested against the MUA lipstick and its far more long lasting and doesn't dry out the lips or go patchy. I like its moisturising properties, with its longevity this is what sets this lipstick apart. Its a stunning post box red and comes in a set which is so worth investing in- I managed to get mine half price in Boots last year so keep an eye out in the sales or pre-christmas cuts!

I hope this guide is helpful and gives you some ideas of what products are available and the best for different events! Comment below if you have any of them or what your go to lip is this time of year!

  1. NYX is hands down my favourite for a matte lip! It works so well for me, plus their darker red shades are super pigmented 😍👌🏼

  3. Such a good post! I love reading comparisons to other brands. I have the NYX lipstick, but in a different shade. I think it's good for the price, but it does flake off which isn't pleasant haha

  8. I absolutely love Rimmel 107, it's my go-to for a berry red lip and I always rebuy this lipstick. I do find the NYX lipsticks a little drying after a while but they look so good! x

  9. The Rimmel and NYX products look like they'd be the best colours for me as I prefer reds with blue undertones due to my paleness! I haven't actually tried any Rimmel lip products yet so I'd love to get my hands on that!
