TWO LITTLE REDS

Left : MAC Russian Red ||  Right: Bobbi Brown Red carpet
Summer or Winter, Spring or autumn, if there is one color that is in vogue all year round, it is RED. I wasn't a fan of red lips until recently. Moreover I was scared of it, come on it is a bold statement. But since the last few months or so, I have developed a craving for red lipsticks. And so, I have two in my vanity!

One is the infamous Russian red from MAC and the other is the gorgeous Red Carpet from Bobbi Brown. Both are beautiful and very richly pigmented matte lipsticks. Russian Red is slightly, very slightly deeper than Red Carpet which is more of a bright tomato red. I find that the MAC one is slightly more drying on the lips, but nothing that cannot be fixed with a good lip balm underneath! On the other hand, Red Carpet has a creamy formula and is hence not drying at all. It also feels very light on the lips! This was my first lipstick from Bobbi Brown, and I am impressed to say the least!

Both are similar, yet so different. I like wearing Russian red mostly during evenings and Red carpet is reserved for day time wear (If I am feeling so bold!). But yes, officially my RED obsession has started. I cant wait to see how many more red lipsticks will become mine in the near future. I already have another one in mind. Wait.. what did you say? NARS Cruella? My wallet just screamed NO ;)

What are your favorite Red lipsticks?

  3. I am in love with two at the moment, Nars Jungle Red (matte) and Lipstick Queen Eden (sheer). Gorgeous lipsticks and so moisturising, even the Nars one. Try it! :-)

  18. I think I'd go for the MAC, just because the BB one is more warm toned which isn't always the best on me. Great comparison :)

  28. I love both of these! I don't have the Bobbi one, but I am a big fan of her lipsticks, so this has gone on the wishlist. NARS Cruella has also been on it for a while...xx
