spin the bottle ♥

Hello girls, how is your Monday going? I'm incredibly tired today but I think I've got through a lot of stuff so I'm happy! For today's post, I wanted to talk about red lipsticks, particularly from the fabulous brand Smooch. I've been a huge fan of Smooch blushers for a good few years now so it's nice to branch away from their "hero product" so to speak. The lighter red shade is called Crimson Fire - it has a gorgeous orange tone towards it and is perfect against a darker skin tone. The darker shade is called Merlot and as you can see it has a very vibrant blue tone underlying the red pigments. Now, I know it can be a bit confusing when I talk about orange and blue tones when this post is about red lipsticks, but the under tones of a red lipstick are essential for choosing what shade will suit you personally.

If you have fairer skin, then blue tone lipsticks are usually best because they create a cool and even look against your lips and features but orange tones mesh perfectly if you have dark eyes, dark hair, tanned skin. I check all of the above, minus the tanned skin at the moment - I'm in need of a holiday! I have to say I really love the texture of Smooch lipsticks, they glide on smoothly and coat your lips in a gorgeous matte finish. They look incredibly glossy and vibrant which is perfect is your due for a girls night out! I think the packaging is incredibly cute and the variety of different shades will match every mood. I give these lipsticks 9/10 - have you tried them yet?
