I do love my pinky makeup looks when it comes to Valentines, but there is something so classy and elegant about the colour red, the colour of love! I tend to avoid red lips on a day to day basis, just because firstly I'm not sure it's that appropriate for work and also I feel like pinks suit me so much better. I do however have a ton of beautiful red lipsticks in my collection that I love and will wear on more special occasions or over the weekends.
My choice of red lip this Valentines is going to be this little beauty from the brand MeMeMe, so far I am loving their Long Wear Satin Lip Cream* in the shade 06 Ruby Rich, this is the perfect name! The name reminds me a little of Russian Red by MAC, and the shade is quite similar too. Ruby Rich is a beautiful, blue toned absolute red, it is the perfect Valentines shade and I feel like it actually suits me, which makes a huge difference.
The MeMeMe Lip Cream is packaged in a very elegant and pretty black bullet, with a very slight design imprinted that you can barely see, but it just adds that little something. I love the texture of this lip product, its so super creamy and my lips feel so hydrated after application. The formula is actually enriched with Vitamin E and Shea Butter, which explains their amazingly soft and creamy texture, I will say that they are so creamy that the end of mine is no longer a point, more of a rounded circle. I'm really enjoying wearing a red lip more often since trying this product which is pretty impressive, I'll definitely be checking them out to see what other shades are available. This beautiful shade is available form the MeMeMe website for just £7.95 at the moment, as there is currently a saving of £1.00 across products, the lip cream usually retails at £8.95.
The best part about this little lipstick is that you can actually get a nail polish to match, which in my eyes is a pretty good colour match and is a very pretty shade, one I really enjoy to wear. The nail polishes by MeMeMe are available at just £4.00 each which is an amazing bargain, this particular shade is called Amorous and it is the most beautiful berry shade, perfect for this time of year.
