5 Affordable Red Lipsticks That Can Probably Make Maleficent Green with Envy

 Okay okay!! I can not get over Maleficent (I can watch it over and over again,,, one of the best I have ever watched). I just felt the need to include her name in this blog post because I really really love Angelina's makeup in that movie. Her red lips against her pale skin plus that bonggang contour equals perfection. The day after watching her movie prodded me to rummage my makeup drawers and re-examine all my red lipsticks. I am not into red lipstick because it can either make my teeth too yellow or it just make my lips look awkwardly huge! Anyways, I picked up affordable red lippies in my stash that I really love. Yes, out of my vast (maka vast wagas!) collection of red lipsticks, these are the products that I really love! 
My top picks are:

1. Pixy Cinnamon Twist - This is a semi matte to almost matte finish ox blood red lipstick that amazingly look good on yellow skin tone.

2. Wet n Wild Megalast in Stoplight Red - One of a blue toned red lipstick that surprisingly works well on my medium skin with rich semi matte finish.

3. Maybelline Colorsensational in Are You Red-dy - This is a very creamy bright strawberry red lipstick with a subtle gloss like  sheen .

4. Etude House Rosy Tint Lipstick in No. 1 - A red lipstick that I can actually wear everyday because of the  buildable color. It can act as tint or a lipstick (whatever you wish) depending on the amount of product used. It has a matte velvety finish which I really like. This is very long lasting and adds a tint on my lips. The shade very nice warm red with very slight hints of orange. I 

5. Avon Ultra Color In Red 2000 - On the tube, this color has that tiny hints of shimmer that is not noticeable when worn. It is a nice neutral red shade that may probably look good on all skin tones. 

I added a plus product which is a lip liner. In makeup school, I learned that one of the hardest lipstick to apply is a red one. Why? Creating that perfectly shaped red lips can be very challenging. Using a nice lip liner can help prevent your lipstick from bleeding. With a lipliner, a perfectly shape cupid's bow is very easy to achieve. I only have one red lip liner which is the Essence Red blush. Honestly, I love the color but it is too soft to be used for outlining. I need to put it in fridge before using it to help prevent the pencil from breaking.
 I know the swatches show that they are almost of the same shade but their texture,color tone and finish are the qualities that differentiate the aforementioned red lipsticks.
Looking like a kontrabida has never been this easy. hehe #charoot Can you guess what's on my lips?

I outlined my lips with the Essence liner, Pixy Cinnamon Twist and on the middle of my lower lips, I applied my 30 pesos Fashion 21 Marble Lipgloss in No.3. :) What do you think?
 A bonus eye makeup of the day photo. I miss doing this!! I used Naked 1 palette. Avon Quad in Chocolate Sensation, Maybelline Stiletto Mascara, Unbranded Falsies, Pixi Endless Silky Eye Pencil in Black and to create that depth under need my eyes, I used San San Single Eye Shadow in Deep Earth Brown. 

What's your all time favorite red lipstick?

Have a blessed day to everyone!

  1. I love red lipsticks to death! :) My fave would be MAC Viva Glam I and CarmenClaire (a PH brand) Glass of Pinot. I'm more drawn to deeper shades of red instead of bright ones. Anyway, heard Spotlight Red was a dupe of Ruby Woo too.

    Must watch Maleficent na. Haha. Yesss, omg. La Jolie's makeup is flawless!


  2. I thought the Maybelline lippie looked familiar! Went to check my stash and I have the same one. :) I think it's a great, true red but I'd really like to add a matte, bluish red like Russian Red. I can't bring myself to spend so much for a lippie though, so still looking for a good dupe! :)

  3. I have that Maybelline lippie! Applies like a dream for me. :) I want something matte and darker though, like MAC Russian Red. Just can't bring myself to spend so much for a lippie!

  4. I love red lipstick! very much :)
