I think we all know how much I love a red lipstick. You can wear them all year round and they are good for occasion. I have quite a few red shades in my stash and most of them are matte shades because I think matte is just more wearable, longer lasting and it is easier to avoid smudging. I do have my preferences when it comes to red lipstick, but my favourite of this moment is absolutely the L’Oréal Collection Exclusive Pure Reds by Blake Lively. I got this one as a present from Nevzat and I just adore it.
Blake’s Red is one of the several red lipstick shades that L’Oreal has introduced with their Collection Exclusive Pure Reds Lipstick Collection for Spring 2015. It`s a limited edition, but still available in many stores. The colour is absolutely amazing. Altough it has been created as a cool lipstick and it is perfect for blondes with cool skin undertones, I think most of us can rock this shade since it is a very traditional and classic red. I love the package. It feels and looks very luxury I think.
It is quite a bright shade and has a satiny matte finish. You can wear this lipstick either at day or night. It kinda feels like a lip balm and it`s pretty moisturising due the use of jojoba. It doesn’t dry your lips out and it stays on for a very long time. I can easily wear it up to 5/6 hours without needing a touch up. I also like the shape of the lipstick, it has a nice shape and a precise point so it is easy to apply without necessarily needing a lip liner or lip pencil and it doesn`t smudge, not even after eating or drinking.
