Sheer Reds

Sheer Red Lipsticks

Korres Lip Butter in Pomegranate

Sheer Red Lipsticks

Red lips, pointy shoes and faux fur vest – the look I usually go for when I want to be braver, look more sophisticated and feel empowered. There is something about the way a simple touch or red makes you feel and I am all about it at the moment. Even though I tend to go all in and sport a full-on bright red lip, recently you can spot me rocking more sheer, subtle reds. They require a lot less maintenance, you can just slap them on and be good to go and they are the perfect option if you are calling it a no-makeup-makeup-day. I rummaged through my stash and my three sheer red standouts are as follows:

The fact that I am on my second tube of Maybelline Baby Lips in Cherry Me (here) should tell you something. I absolutely love this cute little tinted lip balm and I always run it through my lips when I fancy adding a touch of color to my complexion. Cherry Me gives the perfect sheer pinky-red wash of color to the lips and the hydrating balmy consistency is perfect for when you are in a rush and just want something quick and easy that doesn’t require much precision. No-mirror-required type of products are the best, aren’t they! This gem suits and peps up all skin tones and its purse friendly status makes it that much better, so if you still haven’t jumped on the bandwagon, I suggest you get involved asap. Cherry Me just rocks.

The most pigmented out of the three and the product with the best formula comes from Korres and it’s their Lip Butter in Pomegranate (here). Ah where do I even start! From the gorgeous moisturizing formula that makes my lips uber soft and smooth to the gorgeous shade that perks up my complexion in seconds – I cannot fault this bad boy! Pomegranate adds the prettiest reddish veil of tint to the lips and the slight orange-y undertones warm everything up beautifully. I am a massive fan of the Korres Lip Butters for many reasons but the way the balm softens and hydrates my lips has to be my favorite part. Oh and did I mention how much I adore the juicy, kissable finish of Pomegranate? Yes, it’s love.

The first time I got my hands on the Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Gloss Stick in Fuchsia-Ristic (here) I wasn’t impressed. As my love for sheer red lippies developed though, I’ve grown to love it. Ignore the bright orange shade in the bullet, ignore the deceiving ‘fuchsia’ in the name and trust me when I tell you that this baby goes in a stunning sheer pink-y red color that just compliments any skin tone beautifully. It is one of those ‘I could do it with my eyes closed’ kinda lipsticks and I love how evenly and faff-free it applies. The pigmentation is not Fuchsia-Ristic’s strongest feature but if you go on with a few layers you’ll end up with good enough pop of color that will boost your confidence in no time. Formula wise, this lip balm /lip gloss hybrid delivers on all counts and makes my lips feel soft and moisturized. Stickiness in not an issue and you’ll fall in love with the gorgeous glossy finish that makes everything much more exciting.

Have you tried any of these products? Which is you favorite sheer red companion?

Lots of love,

  10. I'm always so scared of red lip products as I don't think they suit me at all, I think I'm going to try the maybelline baby lips if it's more subtle, as I love the classic look and I want to be able to pull it off myself!

  15. Sheer reds always scare me, I never think they will look right. But the Maybelline one looks a good place to start as at least it wont make too much of a dent in the bank account!

  19. I am just like you, I love bold lips but sometimes I just want something with a hint of colour that does not require lip liner nor high maintenance. I personally really like Guerlain Rouge Automatic in 300 (plus the packaging is to die for).
