I plan on stocking up on the Jordana lipsticks in as many shades as possible that suit me, which not many shades do and I’m not into matte lippie, so for $6 each, made in America and they smell really nice when you open them, they are an absolute bargain I plan on taking full advantage of!
These Loreal lipsticks have been my favourite red lippies for the last few years. I alternate between all of lipsticks so they last longer but they are finally getting low. The one on the left is COLOUR RICHE TRANSPARENT RED #96, and is a light and shimmery red, not overwhelming or too much. The right is COLOUR RICHE STAR SECRETS, NATALIE IMBRUGLIA #702, it’s darker but still shimmery. I bought these for $5 each in a cheap store but after all these years these colours are no longer available through Loreal. 🙁
So I went in search of light red lipsticks but all the brand names are over $20 and really, if you can’t stock up on sale or when they’re cheap, then you miss out.
However, I found an American brand called Jordana and found CRANBERRY #076 is almost a perfect match to the light shimmer shade of red.
I also bought BURGUNDY #009 on the right. A similar colour with a touch of pink.
I also bought three shades of pink as my pink lippie was almost flat. Left is ROSETTE #050, middle is VIN ROSE #111, and right is PINK ICE #042.
This one I got a year ago for $5 and is MAYBELLINE WINE ON ICE A78 and is a really nice pinky red.
