If you have been reading my blog for a while now you will know that I am a self-confessed lipstick hoarder. I own way too many lipsticks. Let's just say that I own more lipsticks than you can count on your fingers. As much as I love wearing makeup that is very basic and minimal, finishing off my look with a red lipstick is my favourite. Today I am sharing with you my Top 5 Red Lipsticks.

1. Rubis Rouge (157) - Chambor: This was my first ever red lipstick. Actually this was my first lipstick ever. And so this is where my obsession for lipsticks started. It is matte in texture which means that it stays on for about a couple of hours but then it starts bleeding out of the edges. This can be solved by using a similar lip liner before applying this lipstick.

2. Kate Moss (107) - Rimmel: I LOVE this lipstick. I think this is my second one. It is definitely a very dark shade, but it goes with a lot of my outfits. It is one of my most loved out of all the red lipsticks I own. Again it is matte in texture. I don't think there is a lipstick formula that I have tried that is this perfect. I think it is safe to say that this is as good as they come.

3. Pure Scarleto - L'oreal Collection Star Reds: This is one of the more recent addition into my collection of red lipsticks. At first I was a bit confused as to whether to buy it or not, but when I saw  it onBlake Lively, I knew I had to get it. Love the colour, love the formula, the only thing that there is, is that it need reapplication in about an hour or so. Other then that, I love this one.

4. Pure Garnett - L'oreal Collection Star Reds: This is the darkest coloured lipstick I own. It has got a very purple tone to it but when you apply it, it kind of looks vampy red. Again, I bought  this one because I loved it on Sonam Kapoor. The formula is great, but again it needs an often reapplication like the above one.

*I have done a full review of the above two lipsticks which you can read here.

5. Velourlips - Australis: This brand is an Australian brand. I bought it while I was studying in Australia. I think this is the most red lipstick out of all I own. The formula is super matte and it stays on for a long time. The only problem I have with this one is that it dries out my lips because of the super matte formula. And it is one of the Top 5 because I love this shade of red and plus, I don't have to apply it over for the whole night.

Have you got any red lipsticks that you think I should try?
