I have found my answer to the perfect beautiful red lipstick in Rimmel's Kate Moss' Lipstick in 01. I picked this up in a huge make-up sale for $5 and I have to say, I've definitely got more bang for buck with this medium red, making me feel like I can break boys hearts as I wear it (not really). I personally love wearing red lipstick, it just adds a whole layer of confidence. The formula is perfect as with pretty much all Rimmel Lipsticks. It glides on velvety smooth, is vivid in colour and pretty long lasting (apart from if you've eaten particularly sloppy foods that day). It's super affordable and in my opinion every girl needs a good red lipstick in their life. What more could you want?
Here's a tip: If, like me you need some practice applying lipstick and don't want to agonisingly wash off your attempts and ruin your whole mouth area in the process, use a small make-up brush like the Real Techniques Detailer Brush (which comes with the Core Collection kit) to line your lips as a lip liner would so you create shape and definition. There's nothing worse than looking like a clown or Miranda Sings because you're not the best at applying lipstick. Practice makes perfect, they say.
