The Perfect Red

I feel that there's a constant search for the perfect red lipstick. I actually have the perfect red, which is absolutely ancient - I think it was my grandmothers. The perfect shade, which makes my teeth look about 8 shades whiter and my mouth look super symmetrical and (if I overline slightly) like I've had lip fillers (which I would never get because I don't think it would suit me, but it's good to even up my wonky mouth with makeup!)

I've tried lots of different ones since then, and not just red, either - hot pink is also a good option for a statement lip, but like a red, I've learnt that I need to pick a colour with a blue undertone. Warmer undertones tend to make my teeth look yellow, which is never a good look! I also like orange or coral, especially in the summer, again with that cooler undertone which is more flattering on my skintone. 

I was lucky enough to win this Shiseido lipstick in a competition, and I love the shade which is called 'Ruby Copper'. It's a moisturising luster lipstick which is part of the 'Rouge Rouge' collection - an extraordinary spectrum of reds including brights, nudes and pinks, encompassing 24 shades in all. The formulation lasts for up to 4 hours and the range includes matte shades as well as luster. Take a look at the full collection here.
