A classic red is my go to lip colour when I want to add a little glamour. The high street is giving the high end a run for their money in the quality stakes and I though I'd share my top pics with you.

L'Oreal Collection Exclusive Color Riche - Liya's Red
L'Oreal Color Riche is the newby on my block. I love that the Color Rich collection have tried to create a variety of reds to meet differing skin tones. I picked Liya's red which is a beautiful deep red. It has a slight matte texture not so much drag as say Mac's Ruby Woo and it doesn't have a huge amount of sheen. Liya's Red is a brilliant price at only £6.99 it's such a steal and is pretty long lasting, with around 5 hours staying power.

Revlon Colorstay Moisture Stain - In Shanghai Sizzle
The sheerest of the bunch and at first the one I was least sure of, that said it has grown on me. It glides on with perfection and has a pretty good staying power. I tend to whip Shanghai Sizzle out when I want to pump up my daytime look. Apply sparingly it works really well as a lip tint but is build-able to offer a more intense look.

Maybelline Color Sensational - Pleasure Me Red
I love the cheeky name of this lipstick but that wasn't the first things that drew me to it. I like to think of this as a classic red. The blue undertones suit my skin tone really well and give this lipstick a deeper tone. It's pretty similar to Liya's red but has more sheen and gloss to it. The formal is great it's got brilliant staying power and is really pigmented. It's also the first high street red lipstick I ever bought so has soft spot in my collation.

Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet- Velvet 08
I've saved what could quite possibly be the best until last. I have to warn you be prepared for some serious fan gril-ing over this lippy. The Bourjois Velvet Rouge collection are liquid lipsticks with a velvet finish. They apply in a creamy formula but once dried take a on a beautiful velvet matte effect. Shade 08 is stunning it's somewhere between a deep and bright red that would suit lots of different skin tones. If you like a matte finish but without the drying effect this right here has your name all over it. I know the Rouge Edition Collections have been doing the rounds for a while but I really do think it was one of the most exciting beauty launches of 2014.
