Event: Red My Lips 2015

Red My Lips is an organisation that runs a campaign every April to raise awareness about sexual violence. This year, I decided to take up on that challenge and wear red lipstick for the month. I invited one of my friends to join me because she loves red lipstick and could contribute to a cause. It also would push me to use some of the red lipsticks I own and finish off my Chanel.

I only had three lipsticks that I would consider "red":

I have yet to complete this challenge as the month is not over but so far, it has been a difficult endeavour.

Lipstick: Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Monte Carlo (62)

Easy to put on when you just want a little bit of colour. This is not a true red, more like a strawberry-pink/red. I wore this most of the time.

Day Out / Happy Medium
Lipstick: Illamasqua Maneater

Great colour if you like something suitable for day time. It's a classic cherry red. Formula's a little dry but that is what I expect from a completely matte lipstick. I like it best when sheered out but I can build it up for night.

Bold Day Out/ Night Out
Lipstick: Lime Crime Velvetines in Red Velvet

I'm not a huge fan of liquid lipsticks. Great if you want instant opaque colour but I like the versatility of an ordinary lipstick bullet, where I can build it up or sheer it out. It's a must for dates and this was the one I wore to Fashion Week.
