I searched a few brands for red and settled for Illamasqua's Maneater even though MAC's Russian Red caught my eye first. I adore the matte finishes and Illamasqua is a little less expensive than MAC here, so that's what I settled for. It's a "classic cherry red" with a satin-matte finish. I found it a little bit drying but nothing that a lip balm can't fix.

I wore it out to dinner with some friends. I paired up the statement necklace I got from ASOS with a plain white shirt and a skirt. I put on a beige trench as I was heading out (my usual outfit when I'm heading to uni). As for the makeup, I paired the red lip with a sheer wash of peach eyeshadow and some mascara (very subtle makeup but the camera can't pick up the eyeshadow).

Would I wear a red lip another time?
