L'Oreal - Reds Collection in Julianne's Red

I adored this colour immediately as it's a 'happier' red then most others you see.  Swirled with more blue, pink and coral tones, what makes Julianne's Red my red is the bright colour.  It compliments my pale skin and makes it look creamier and healthier than usual.  On top of this, it's a bargain at under £10.  Love love love this! 

Colour Intensity: high

Finish: creamy but not glossy.  Colour stays put.

Overall Rating: 5/5

Marc Jacobs in Showstopper

You wouldn't expect anything less from one of the world's most amazing fashion designers.  I found the Marc Jacobs lipstick range to have a great choice of colour, as well as sultry gloss like I've never seen before.

Showstopper is a darker, bolder twist to the conventional, classic red.  The colour looks more burgundy when you twist it up, but once on the lips, it transforms into a red you won't want to part from again.  It has become my new, classic red.

To top it all off, it's packed in a great looking case.  You'll use it constantly just to show it off!

Colour Intensity: very high

Finish: Glossy coverage - you will have to reapply

Overall Rating: 4/5 - loses a point as it leaves a red stain after a while.

MAC - Matte Lipstick in Hearts Aflame

I purchased this delightful lipstick at Heathrow airport treat on the way to Houston.  As part of MAC's Romantic, autumnal collection, I was drawn to the deep red immediately and thought it perfect to compliment the cold weather quickly drawing in.  Hearts Aflame is not a colour for the faint hearted; matte, bold, kiss proof colour best designed for the lipstick wearers craving an impact.  Like all of MAC's legendary Matte collection, this colour doesn't rub off make your choice before wearing.

Choose a matching nail colour for a great 'change of weather, look.

Colour Intensity: very high

Finish: matte

Overall Rating: 4/5
