Lippies for Spring Part 5: Reds

Here we are, the final chapter of my favorite lipsticks for the warmer seasons. It started out as a spring series, and technically we still are in spring, but here in the Netherlands we have been experiencing a somewhat summery heat wave with sunny days and up to 27 degrees! Amazing! Anyway, point is I will definitely be wearing these colors over in summer too, I wasn't much into pastels anyway. I saved the classic for last, so this installment of the series is dedicated to red lips. Definitely a statement lip that can be brought to a day look by using these brighter and more orangy-toned reds. Let's get started.

From top left to bottom right:  Sleek Pout Paint in Pin Up, Catrice Wet Shine Lip Stain 02 Thrilling, Maybelline Superstay 24h Color 510 Red Passion, Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Hot Pepper
From top left to bottom right:
  1. Sleek Pout Paint in Pin Up (here): this is a long lasting stain that stays on a long time. The color is the most classical blue-toned red and suits really any skin tone on the light side. The Pout Paints take from the OCC Lip Tars and come in a squeeze tube and you have to apply with a brush (which I find a bit annoying) and can be mixed to make your own colors (which I find brilliant!).
  2. Catrice Wet Shine Lip Stain in 02 Thilling (Kruidvat, review here): true red, goes on like a gloss but after the shine is gone it stays as a stain. It feathers a bit if you don't use a lip pencil.
  3. Maybelline Superstay 24h Color in 510 Red Passion (drugstores and here): I'd say my favorite lip stain, lasts forever and cannot praise it enough! I reviewed it here.
  4. Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet in Hot Pepper (drugstores): beautiful matte liquid lipsticks. has good staying power and feels super soft on the lips. Love it!
Here we go, these are not all the red lipsticks I own, but these are the ones I prefer for the warmer weather because they're brighter and lighter shades and I can use them during the day, while my more dark and vampy reds I reserve for autumn and winter.

Do you have a favorite red lip? Leave it down below!


  1. The Maybelline shade looks amazing on you! I tend to favour a pink lip over red for some reason :)
