What’s Your Favorite Red Lipstick?

NYX Copenhagen Soft Matte Lip Cream

Happy Monday, darlings! I know you’re probably feeling the Monday blues after all that holiday fun and food but I’m gonna perk you up with a little beauty talk. Makeup always helps, right? Today, we’re gonna talk about our favorite red lipstick. You know I’m not the biggest red lip junkie but there are a couple of red lipsticks that I adore. Like the NYX Copenhagen Soft Matte Lip I was just telling you about. I went through hell and hot water trying to find this lipstick so I’m damn glad that it turned out to be so flattering.

NYX Copenhagen Soft Matte Lip Cream

Copenhagen is a vampy burgundy with a soft matte finish that looks great alone but I loooove pairing it with MAC Nightmoth Lip Pencil. Not only does it help me achieve a crisp, clean application but it kicks the vamp up a notch and makes it look even sexier. I decided to slip on this dynamic duo and pair it with a brown smokey eye and leopard print top for work yesterday. It just felt right!

  1. Really want to get my hands on these but everytime I try to order online they never have any left! This colour is lovely though, going to add it to my wishlist. You really suit it! x

      Gahhh I know the struggle! I went through the same thing stalking NYX and Ulta online with little luck. Eventually, I was able to track one down in stores once the hype died down. I hope you find one soon! And thank ya 😉

    I was finally able to get this and Transylvania during an Ulta BOGO and was so excited! But between the processing and actual shipping, my order took almost 2 weeks to get to me! So the weather had warmed up considerably and I just put them away and still haven’t worn them, whomp whomp. My favorite red is, by far, RiRi Woo!

      Ulta is so SLOOOOOW and their shipping price is high to be that slow. I hate ordering from them sometimes. But I’m glad you were able to get your hands on both! I still haven’t had luck with Transylvania lol. Maybe one day. RiRi Woo is a classic!! I ended up getting 2 tubes because it looked so good lol

    Maybeline divine wine. Although the new plum please blur stick thingy I just picked up from maybeline, which is more red than purple is a favorite right off the bat.

      Ooo I wish the Walmart I went to had that one in stock. It sounds so pretty! Divine Wine is an excellent pick. I was addicted to it last winter lol

    Wow, Fancie, that’s a very sexy and sophisticated look there! Love the vampy lip color with the lip pencil. And did you use contour/highlight or are those just killer cheekbones?

    1. fancie

      Why thank you! And yes I contoured in this pic. My face is so round, chubby and baby-like still lol. I live for contorting to give my face some actual definition. I wish I had naturally killer cheekbones but I don’t mind faking it lol

      1. Katherine T.

        Oh Fancie, your face is so pretty! I have a round chubby face, and used to hate it when I was younger. I wanted to look grown up, sophisticated, with killer cheekbones, but now that I’m +40, I’m glad. My round face has finally thinned out a little, so I’m starting to see a little cheekbone, but the roundness and extra baby fat makes me look younger, less wrinkles. It’s ironic that when you are young, you want to look older, but as you get older, you want to look younger LOL

        1. fancie

          LOL I hear that all the time! I know when I get older I’ll appreciate my baby face but it’s so annoying at 25 lol. Thank you for your kind words! I just have to remind myself us baby face folks age wonderfully. At least I have a little something to look forward to in my 30s + 40s!

  5. Omg, you look so beyond gorgeous!! Excellent style, Fancie, you look like you’re going to paint the town red… or pink. <3 <3

    Red lipsticks are up there on my favourites list, so I have a few. My top two are NYC's Retro Red and NYX's Matte in Alabama.

    1. fancie

      You’re so sweet. Thank you! This isn’t the first time I’ve heard about NYX Alabama. I actually just came across various pic of it on Instagram the other day and it looked nice. I bet it’s beautiful on you!

      1. Thanks. <3 I just did a review of it, actually! NYX's mattes aren't the best, but at least they don't have the foul taste of the regular NYX line. =(

        1. fancie

          Really? Surprisingly I’ve never tried a NYX matte lipstick. I own a couple but haven’t gotten around to trying them out. I’m gonna check out your review!

    Definitely MAC Relentlessly Red! It’s like halfway between bright red and bright pink, with a fair bit of coral thrown in. I always get compliments when I wear it, but it’s not for the faint of heart!

    1. fancie

      Half red and half pink? How have I not tried this yet?! I bet you get tons of compliments. It sounds like a go to lipstick for spring/summer and I bet it just pops on you! Now I want it LOL

      1. Katie Hoyt

        It is soooo pretty! But I have to be careful not to wear it every day, since it’s super drying.
