Red lipsticks for Autumn


I’m a big fan of a red lip and have accumulated a bit of a collection of lipsticks and glosses in various red shades. As we approach Autumn, I’m finding myself reaching for these more and more, so have narrowed down my favourites which I’m using most at the moment.

As seen above, I tend to go over my lipstick with either 104 volupte gloss from YSL or my new MAC Dressed to the K9s Mineralize Glass, both of which are quite plum deep reds. I line with my cremestick lip pencil also from MAC.


From left to right: 1) MAC Cremesheen Party Line 2) MAC Labradorable 3) MAC Cockney 4) MAC Viva Glam V, Pam Anderson’s colour.

I have some empties I need to swap in for a new lipstick and have my eye on Rebel as so many of the blogs I read have mentioned it lately. Not sure how I’ve managed to go this long without trying it!

What are your favourite red lipsticks?

    I’m so envious of your MAC collection! I recently bought my first few MAC products, can’t wait to start using them properly!

      • Kimberley

        I got lipsticks in Rebel, Diva and Flat Out Fabulous, lip liners in Currant and Heroine and a lipglass but I can’t remember the name of the shade!

          ooh those look lovely! x

  • Angie Americana

    OMG I am in love with these colors! I’m kind of in a beauty rut and I really want to try to add some new shade to my arsenal. I’ll have to look for things like this!

    • Amy

      I felt the same and I’ve found Autumn looks have really helped 🙂 x

    Ahh! Now these are my kind of colours (all year around, haha!). I LOVE Elf’s Cheerful Cherry and L’Oreal’s Red Velvet! x

      I think I’m going to keep wearing them throughout the year, reds & nudes are my favourite lip looks for sure! x

    Ooooo, that “Labradorable” is gorgeous!

    • Amy

      It’s probably the one I’m wearing most at the moment, I love it! x

  • TheStyleRawr

    I can’t wear red because my lips are so teeny but I love bright red a la Gwen Stefani! Berry tones are so gorgeous for A/W.
