When 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.
There’s a reason everyone loves this shade so much. This is the perfect red. It’s deep, but not too dark. It’s matte, but not drying. It’s just such an amazing red. 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.
