I don’t wear red lipstick often but during the colder months, I can be seen sporting a red lip more often than not. And along with that, I love, love, LOVE a good red nail polish. However, I can’t stand it when my red lip doesn’t match my red nail. I’m not a perfectionist in any way but it’s here that I show a bit of obsessiveness. I’m always looking for colours that both match each other and flatter my complexion and I have finally found it. Not only are these products guh-reat, they are also cheap as chips as they are both drugstore products. WIN!!

Bourjois Rouge edition velvet Personne ne Rouge

First up we have the Bourjois Rouge edition Velvet lipstick in  . Now look, when Anna from Vivianna Does Makeup raves about a product, you must know it’s fabulous. So when I saw Rubybox selling these, I immediately ordered one. I absolutely LOVE this lipstick. It applies like a dream and the colour is just so gorgeous. It stays velvety for quite a while and then dries to a beautiful matte. The wonderful thing is that it’s not drying, it keeps your lips hydrated throughout the day. The most amazing thing is that this lipstick lasts ALL. DAY. It got a little patchy towards the end of the day but this was after eating, drinking and rubbing my lips together all day so it really wasn’t the lipsticks fault. I just can’t say enough good stuff about this lipstick. (Also, excuse the squiqqly outline, I had been wearing this all day and just did a quick touch-up before shooting…rookie mistake.)

Rimmel Salon Pro Rock 'n Roll

Then for the nail colour. I ordered this on TakeAlot and was SO excited when it arrived. And now that I’ve used it for around 2 weeks, I can tell you that this is probably one of my favourite nail polishes I have ever used. When I took this photo, I had been wearing this nail polish for 4 days already and just the very tips started showing a bit of chippage.  As I type this, I’ve been wearing it for 3 days and there is not a single chip. Not even one. And this is a big deal for me because nail polish just doesn’t last on my nails. I am just too busy with my hands. I also think this is the perfect red and will be flattering on many different skin tones.

The perfect red lip and nail combo

So, as you can see by my very silly photo, these two match absolutely perfectly and I love the vintage glam feeling it gives me. Definitely a look I’ll be sporting a lot this winter. Are you a red lip gal? What are your favourites?
