Much like the elusive perfect pair of jeans, finding the perfect red lipstick that suits your skin tone and doesn’t break the bank can take years. However, Trinny London, the beauty brand brought to us by make-up queen and YOU contributing editor Trinny Woodall, may hold the answer we’ve all been waiting for in the latest addition to its Lip2Cheek range, which is said to suit all skin tones.
The new shade, named Rossy, is apparently a ‘true red’, which means it doesn’t have any orange or blue undertones and so should suit all skin tones and hair colours. It comes encased in Trinny’s signature stackable pot style and the formula itself is a nourishing cream-based balm-like texture, making it a particularly hydrating choice compared to other highly-pigmented lipstick choices out there.
A red lip can totally transform your look, whether that’s to take you from day to night or just to bring a pop of bold colour to an everyday look. With the buildable coverage of the Lip2Cheek range, you can achieve a variety of looks with just one product – take a light swipe across the lips for a subtle hint of colour, or build it up layer by layer with a lip brush to create an opaque, highly-pigmented red lip.
The nature of the Lip2Cheek range means the colour can also be applied to the cheeks to give a rosy glow – tip: wearing the same shade on your lips and cheeks really brings your whole look together.
Priced at £25, the lip pot isn’t the cheapest option on the beauty market, but considering it’s versatility and the fact it’s essentially two products in one, we say it’s pretty good value. Small but mighty, Trinny London claims that the 4g pot lasts on average six months, meaning this could very easily become your (and our) new go-to product for an easy, quick red lip.
