My Favourite Red Lipstick

I have a fair amount of lipsticks (of which will be saved for another time) in a variety of colours. However, my favourite colour has to be red. Nothing can add class and glamour to an outfit or look like a bright red lip can. I have a few red lipsticks, in various shades, but my favourite has to be 'Hazard' from Topshop.

I all lot of the Topshop lipsticks, however this was the first one I purchased as I was looking for a nice red lippy at the time, and this was perfect! As you can tell by the packaging, this is something I use a lot (and take out in my bag for reapplication), and I wear it a lot on nights out, as well as during the day when I'm not wearing much eye makeup.

It is a fairly bright red, which is what I was looking for, and definitely my go-to when I want to wear a statement lip. In the tube it looks a lot darker than when it is actually applied, but nevertheless I love it. It isn't a matte lipstick, but fairly moisturising, and I would probably say needs reapplying for a touch up after a good couple of hours.

This is how it looks when applied to the mouth, although I'm sure yours will be much neater than mine, it's not good applying lipstick in dim lighting! Also, it does tend to bleed, therefore it would hold much better with a lipliner. I can imagine this is the kind of lipstick that would suit absolutely anybody, which is always a plus!


  • Moisturising
  • Beautiful colour
  • Nice packaging (when you haven't scraped it all off like me!)
  • Very pigmented
  • Reasonably priced
  • Brighter than it looks before applying
  • Bleeds (lipliner preferably!)
Hope this was helpful, and I would definitely recommend this product to everyone!

    1. I love them :) I love your blog too! x

  2. Great post, Topshop lipsticks are probably my favourite kind, I use Rio Rio as a bright red. I get what you said about the packaging, it's clearly pretty cheap and peels easily, but I still think the lipsticks are amazing!

    Thank you for following me! Followed back :D xx

    1. Thanks :) I'd heard that one was good, but it wasn't there when I bought mine, definitely have my eye on a few for the spring/summer though!
