The Perfect Red Lip

sephoracreamlipstainalwaysredWhen it comes to red lipstick (like the rest of my makeup), I’m always looking for the perfect one. Months ago, I tried out the Sephora Cream Lip Stains, and while I love the pinky-red, Strawberry Kiss, I knew that I would love Always Red and that I needed it in my life. Every time I went into a store, it was always sold out, or I would be distracted by other things (it’s basically impossible to stay focused in Sephora, isn’t it?) and forget about it. Last week when I was ordering some new products online (I shared my haul on Instagram on Tuesday), I decided it was time to add Always Red to my basket.

I compared it to all my other reds, to see if I had something like it, and I actually don’t! Most of the other reds I have are more pink or slightly orange. The best way I can describe this one is as a classic red. Besides the awesome colour payoff, like the other cream lip stains, this one lasts all day, even through eating and drinking. It’s just perfect.

Have you tried Always Red or any of the other Sephora Cream Lip Stains? What’s your favourite red?
