Ah, red lipstick. We’ve looked at L’Oreal Paris’ new Collection Exclusive Pure Reds this morning; checked a gallery of celebs to see how they swipe the scarlet and now it’s your turn.

If you love red, it’s likely you’ve got one or two (or ten) you feel loyal to; so when I asked on Twitter what your fave shades were, I got back rather a lot of replies. Here are 12 of ’em, did yours make it in?

  1. @robyntmorton says it’s gotta be “Shiseido’s Lacquer Rouge in Lust. Amazing colour.”
  2. @Specialagentiny‘s “Not a huge fan of lipstick but love Revlon lip butter in candy apple!”
  3. YSL all the way for @StephanieOQ. “It’s just Pur Couture 01 Le Rouge,” she says.
  4. @DeirdroFoley knows her reds: “MAC Lady Danger, NARS Cruella, Chanel Dragon (disc), MAC Heartless (ltd ed). Oops, that’s four Ooooh and NARS Heat Wave!,” which is shown here.
  5. “Really like Nars Dragongirl & Red Square but Chanel La Precieuse is my favourite @fluffyblog blogged about it & had to have it,” says @LoNiCho.

  6. “Funnily enough, I’ve just discovered mine: NYC Lip Lacquer in Big City Berry (not really berry btw). Best red ever for my face!,” is what @ArtDonatella reckons.
  7. “Lady Danger, MAC of course,” sez @louisemcsharry.
  8. Changing up the format, @lainey316 tweeted that “Cruella pencil by Nars is the only red I can pull off. It’s a demon for getting on teeth/hair strands leaving streaks tho.” Noted.
  9. @likemamuse2bake  rates a classic: “Revlon Fire and ice,” she says.
  10. You can’t buy it here but it’s all about “Buxom Provocateur​,” for @fionarhw.
  11. It’s “Mac Russian red for sure​,” for @anakinsella.
  12. @GillRob1888‘s pick? “Kate Moss for Rimmel 01.”

HTs also for lots of mentions for Mac Ruby Woo, Rimmel Kate Moss shades like 107, Bourjois new Velvet Matte Lip Creams as well as more Mac and Nars shades than I can shake a stick at.

Do you see your fave here or have I made a rookie error and left a totally necessary one out? Let me know below.
