In search of the perfect red lipstick

Do you have any favourite red lipsticks?
I do, and unfortunately there are more than a couple. In fact they are eleven! Eleven different shades of red, most of them warm and some cool, some bright and others dark. I totally understand people who just have one favourite signature red lipstick but this never works for me cause I get bored too easilly plus I like experimenting with new shades and textures- although not everything I try works for me.
Below is a picture of the lipsticks' swatches in the sunlight.

And here are the lipsticks' swatches under artificial light.

Hope this post was helpful......
cause to me photos of swatches come particularly handy when shopping online!By the way my colour currently is between NC25 and NC30.


  1. I vote for the Chanel & the Mac runaway red!
