Lady in Red – BookF27

Lady in Red

Deep, matte, bright or even glossy, a swipe of red lipstick can update your look instantly. We recently fell head over heels for Pat McGrath’s range of show-stopping rouges. Each one has a velvety formula that is highly pigmented so you can make a statement with minimal effort, no wonder it’s a cult favourite.

Here are our top picks:


Luxurious, pigmented and unbelievably smooth, this particularly flattering lipstick glides on with ease unlike many other matte lipsticks on the market. Its creamy formula is lightweight and long lasting so you needn’t worry about touch-ups. As it’s matte, we recommend lining lips first for flawless application. The brand promises you’ll exude a femme fatale vibe if you opt for one of their many shades of red and after trying it out ourselves we can confirm this is indeed the case.


This range of sensuously saturated hues never fails to impress. These classic, wearable reds suit most skin tones while providing rich hydration and protection from free radicals; it’s a win-win! Expect a punchy bolt of colour with a delicate veil of sheen.


Exclusive to, this quartet of lip glosses offers a megawatt shine that will turn heads. We recommend having minimal makeup to let your pout do all the talking. A slick of winged eyeliner and a simple BB cream should do the trick.
