Red Lips & Polkadots


Wearing: Emporium Vintage dress / Minkpink cardigan / Luichiny Boots / Calvin Klein Lippy- unknown colour

I picked up this minkpink cardy on a whim on my way to work when I wanted a quick fix for the day, and I've been loving the snugly, oversized feel of it. One thing I'm not so keen on are the pink pearls but those will be snipped off soon enough and it'll be like they never existed ;) I'm just not a pink girl - don't hate.

You'll also notice that I've been getting into the swing of red lips lately and I now see why there is such a massive cult following around them. Swiping on a slick of red lippy instantly brightens up the face and adds interest to an otherwise boring outfit. I also welcome the extra confidence boost that seems to accompany the lippy :)

I've been eyeing up Mac's Rebel and Russian Red for the past few days but need a good recommendation of a fab red lipliner? Any suggestions please leave them below.

  1. Thats such a nice cardigan huh! I was eyeing them up in Wildpair but couldn't justify paying the price, so I looked around and actually found one thats basically exactly the same but without the pearl beads in FARMERS?! It was such a good price, and I love it so much! Also, I heard on BeautyCrush's Youtube channel that Mac's Cherry lip liner goes well with Russian Red. :~)

  3. Love your filmstrip photos, super fun & cute! For the lip liner, you could always invest in a clear one; that way you'll have a liner for every colour! I hear good things about the Maybelline Colour Sensational & No bleeding Lips clear liners :) Good luck!

  4. So pretty! Love your shorter hair! The Chanel lipliner number 37 is my perfect red lipliner and I love using the shocking pink lipliner number 55 from Chanel as well with Rebel! The pink tones in Rebel work really well with the pink lipliner :) xx

  14. Mac's Redd lipliner is a great one. I think there's one called Cherry too which is supposed to be good. I also like Natio's red lipliner in Scarlett but it is prone to snapping as it's a twist up :).
