I am giving you not 2, not 4, but 7 easy to wear red lip colours! Read on to see lip swatches and different ways to wear them...



This post is dedicated to a lovely lady on Instagram - @sheetmasquerade 💋 thanks to you I had one of the most fun swatching sessions!

Red can be a very intimidating shade to wear - but who doesn't want that Snow White aesthetic? Truth is, if you are afraid of reds, or have never worn them, you are better to start with sheerer, easy to wear red shades - dip your toes, so to speak.
I simply adore red lips - they are a statement, a means of expressing the fierce and confident woman that you are. Also, they pretty much go with any skin, clothing and occasion. Not sure what to do for an evening out with the girls? Whip out a red lipstick! Have a company dinner and only 10 minutes to spare? Swipe on some red and you're golden! Early morning meeting, but you want to look polished (like I did today)? Red is there for you.

However, I have been wearing this shade since high school, since few things are more beautiful than a Gothic, romantic lace dress and a strong red lip, and I feel comfortable with both sheer and super-intense shades.
Today I am here to provide you with some 'training wheels' - 7 gorgeous lip products that will give you an array of easy to wear red lip colours and ways to wear them. 

One tip - if you plan to rock a full-on red lip do invest in both a lip pencil and a lip brush. These two tools will aid you in precise application and not having to worry about the lipstick bleeding.
However, don't be afraid to apply straight from the bullet, or use your fingers to blend out the colour (as you will see me doing further down)!


Here we have the swatches of each one - from left to right, one swipe each: 

💋 Aritaum Water Sliding Tint in Crazy Ruby 
💋 The Saem Eco Soul Kiss Button Lips in Twenty Red 
💋 Missha Moisture Coating Tint in Eternal Red 
💋 Aritaum World Glam Lasting Tint in Las Vegas 
💋 Innisfree Creammellow lipstick in 8 Moistful Dewy Red 
💋 Etude House Fresh Cherry Tint in RD301 Cherry Red 
💋 Missha Signature Glam Art Gloss in SRD05

And now onto lip swatches! Starting with 3 full-lip, straight out of the bullet, looks:

💋 Aritaum Water Sliding Tint in Crazy Ruby, patted on, slightly gradient look that will wear off into a lovely stain
💋 The Saem Eco Soul Kiss Button Lips in Twenty Red - one layer, brighter red, doesn't leave too much of a stain, but is very comfortable and moisturising
💋 Missha Moisture Coating Tint in Eternal Red - two layers, soft red - perfect everyday red, comfortable like a lip balm and leaves a gentle stain once worn off


Here we have Innisfree Creammellow lipstick in Moistful Dewy red - top swatch is one swipe with the lipstick bullet; 
the second swatch is patted on and then spread with fingertips to produce a gentle, lasting red tint


Next we have Aritaum World Glam Lasting Tint in Las Vegas - top swatch is one layer, full lip application with the doe-foot applicator, leaves a stain behind;
bottom swatch is a gradient look achieved by applying the color in the inner part of the lips and then gently patting to blend out a little bit


Finally we have Etude House Fresh Cherry Tint & Missha Signature Glam Art Gloss - a beloved combo:

Top swatch is a gradient look, achieved in the same manner as previously - by applying the color on the inner part of the lips and then gently patting to blend out the edges;
middle swatch is the Fresh Cherry Tint in Cherry Red applied fully on the lips, one layer (the stain remains the same shade, just without the gloss);
bottom swatch is Cherry Red full lip + Missha Signature Glam Art Gloss in SRD05 applied on top, producing an opaque, soft red lip


And the last swatch is of my lips before and after all of the swatches! 
As you can see, the products left a lovely gradient red tint on my lips (that won't go away until you clean it with an oil-based cleanser).
This is why I love Korean lipsticks and tints - they leave behind a lovely stain and you don't have to worry about re-application.
