MY THOUGHTS: Maybelline Moisture Extreme in Royal Red

A girl can never have too many red lipsticks.

I can't rave enough about this one. I love it!

I was told when I was younger that redheads should avoid red lipstick (and just red in general). That stuck with me for years. Then, one day, I tried it and bloody loved it! Moral of the story, don't let other people tell you what suits you. Part of the fun is working that out for yourself.

The formula is really creamy - it's like a hybrid of a lipstick and a lipbalm. This is where the 'moisture extreme' comes in and is definitely a title that this product lives up to, it isn't at all drying.
I would recommend using a liner underneath this product as it is super soft and I sometimes find it sliding a little bit. I would also say that I do find myself having to reapply a couple of times throughout the day but that isn't a major issue for me.

Another plus to this lipstick is that it smells like melon, which isn't something I've come across in a lip product before, but is something that I definitely welcome.

I don't know whether this is just me but I find that my teeth look a lot whiter with this on. I can't stop smiling. 
I can't put my finger on the actual colour. It's a definite fire engine red but sometimes I feel it leans more orange and sometimes I get blue undertones. Try it for yourself and let me know what you think.

I read somewhere that this product has been discontinued (boo!) but you can still get hold of it on sites such as eBay and I would definitely recommend this to any lipstick lover.

What are your favourite red lipsticks?
