Perfect Combination For Perfect Red...

So I'm not sure if any of you readers remember, I wrote 1-2 posts on red lipstick.
To view them click either of the pictures below...

But anyways I went on about finding the perfect red and how mine was some Avon one. Well that's kind of changed so I decided to do an updated post about that. Today was Comic Relief, also known as Red Nose Day, so in school I saw a lot of girls with red lipstick. I never had that, I thought I had done red and black smokey eyes so red lips paired with that wouldn't look good but by the end of the day I wish I had since I felt kind of left out. A lot of the girls were all wearing a bright red, kind of like the one in the top right corner up there and I thought to myself "Is it only me who understands about the colour pigmentation in red lipsticks and how different reds suit different people?" At times during the day I really felt like telling some of them girls about this but then I thought never mind, I really did not want to start an argument, even though I didn't really mean it in a bad way, just wanted to share what I have learnt. Anyways when I got home I decided to slap on some red lipstick and take some pictures. I ended up combining two red lipsticks and a deep plum, which now seems to be the perfect red for me. Here's a picture of how it looks below:
So let me just start of by giving the lipsticks names.

I'm not sure of the exact name of the lipstick as it has just got silver packaging but it is called "smitten red" and the picture below is how it looks.

As you can see there is a pink and a red, the red one is the one I have. It is very obviously quite bright and wouldn't really suit my skin tone as I have a warm, yellowish undertone. Though I would like to say that the colour result is very very vibrant and the formula is very moisturising. I had quite chapped lips today and I was worried the lipstick would look would but it really moisturised my lips so it all worked out well.

The second lipstick I layered on was this Avon one I mentioned in the other red lipstick posts that is called Rose Addiction. This was my perfect red as it wasn't too bright or too deep. I applied it and it blended really well with the smitten red one.

The last lipstick was one from Avon Colortrend range called Lucky Kiss. This is the deep plum colour on the far right of the picture. It was a colour I picked but wasn't sure if it'd look good. But I layered it right on top and it completely finished off the whole thing and gave a nice finish to it and a deeper look, which fit my skin tone perfectly, I feel anyways.
I then blotted my lips as I had obviously put on a lot of lipstick and that was it, it lasted about an hour, even when I ate food and drank water. It only lasted an hour because I felt like taking it off eventually but it could have easily lasted a good few hours.

I hope you enjoyed this little update on my new red lipstick. I was gonna post an everyday lipstick combo since I have got that now too but I am quite tired as it is 12.33am and I just want to sleep. So I will talk to you guys in the morning/afternoon/night whenever I post that :) xxx
