A Red Kiss

If you are a girl with Indian/darker skin, it's difficult to find a bold red lip that doesn't make you look like you're in drag. Fact.

It's not an easy task but I am a girl on a mission. I love a bright, bold red lip especially in colder months as it just stands out and looks so glamorous. I found these lippys which definitely do the trick without making you look manly. I've gone for reds with an orange undertone as they work well with a darker skin tone to give a vibrant colour.

My first has to be the Clinique Long Last Soft Matte lipstick in Crimson. A very creamy, melt on your mouth formula with amazing staying power. It's a very bright red so apply lightly at first and then build up.

MAC Russian Red. I was a little unsure of this when the girl in MAC told me to try it. It is SO red. I applied it so cautously she actually told me off. She said if I was going to try it I had to TRY IT. The girl was right, if you want a bold stand out lip- you need this. It's not anything but total sexiness in a lipstick bullet. If wearing this doesn't make you feel glamorous, I don't know what will!

Finally is a sublime confection from Bobbi Brown. The Creamy Matte Lip Colour in Crushed Plum. (I clearly have a 'creamy matte' preference!) This is more of a deep, rich red- think roses a few days old. It's perfect for evenings or for really vamping up a look. Again, it's very soft and comes out quite strong so definitely build up colour.
