P A T R I O T I C R E D S // Happy Fourth of July!!

Patriotic reds

Happy 4th of July everyone!! Can you believe it?! It's already July. Time seems to be flying on by! Today, since we are celebrating here in the United States I thought that now would be an appropriate time to share my red lipstick collection since the color red represents passion and patriotism. 
Red lipstick is basically all I have in my lipstick collection in general. I just like how it looks on my lips with the rest of my makeup routine. There is a shade of red for every season. I am interested in trying other shades of lipstick out there besides red but today, is not that day. 

Behold my capsule collection of reds! 

NARS Satin Lip Pencil --- Majella 

A beautiful garnet shade and a equally beautiful introduction to the NARS lip pencils in general. glides on smooth, creamy and lasts a good while. Also! did you know that each shade name from the satin lip collection  comes from certain parks and gardens?  

NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil --- Red Sq.

 The summer season came along and whispered to me that I needed a warmer lip color in my collection. I agreed and went with this beauty which lasts on my lips longer than the satin lip pencil obviously because its a dryer formula and less likely to slip around. I was unsure how I would look with a warm red but actually these days I prefer this over all my other reds. It is perfection in crayon/pencil form. The only downfall is that it does not sharpen itself.  

Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm --- Standout 

This drugstore must have does however twist up. I find this product to be my most handy red. I always have it tucked away in my bag so if I feel the need to reapply some sort of red I have one handy. The color is very pretty and its very affordable too. I highly suggesting picking one up.  

Sephora Rouge Infusion Stain --- Red Essence

This was an accidental purchase because I thought I was buying the lip stain I will talk about next. However, this stain is actually very nice. It is a very sheer finish. Great for days where I want my look to have a lighter feel. 

Sephora Cream Lip Stain --- Always Red 

After hearing a recommendation from blogger/youtuber: Amelia Liana about this lip cream I instantly felt that I needed to pick it up. This provides really long lasting color. Initially it feels very creamy on the lips and smells like a delicious vanilla cupcake but then settles down into a silky, lightweight stain that feels so comfortable on the lips you can barely feel it. So glad I listened to that recommendation! Thanks Amelia! 

Kate Moss Rimmel Lasting Finish --- 111 

This was my very first red in my collection. An oldy but a goody. It does not have the best lasting power but it does look nice while it lasts! 

What are your favorite reds? Does anybody have great recommendations? Leave it in the comments section below! 

And that about wraps it up for my capsule collection of patriotic reds! I hope that all of you are having a wonderful day and if you are celebrating the 4th of July like me today I hope that you eat lots of yummy food, spend quality time with family and watch spectacular firework shows! 

See you all next time! Happy Fourth of July!
