A few weeks ago, as some of you may have read over at Forever Amber, I was sent a Glossybox to try out.

I was pretty impressed with Glossybox in general, but I was most impressed by the inclusion of one of my very favourite things in the whole wide (beauty) world: a bright red lipstick.

This one is by All for Eve and the colour is Eve Red, and it’s one of those bold, “retro reds” of the kind beloved by old Hollywood stars… and modern-day Dollfaces. It has a slight sheen to it, and is absolutely lovely to use: it just glides right on, AND stays put for a while, although, as with any non-longstay lipstick, you can expect to have to reapply after food and drink.

As for the colour, well, it’s a bright red with pinkish undertones, and is very much a “statement” colour, which is one more reason to love it, in my book.

I’ve worn this every day this week, and have made several attempts to photograph it, none of which really capture the colour in all its glory, but here are my best efforts:

This costs £10.50 (click here to buy it), and all net profits from its sale go to The Eve Appeal, which you can read about here.

  1. Ooooh I have this colour! I wear it all the time! I have a problem though; this is a lovely bright colour that stands out a lot and I have incredibly round lips. Literally, my cupid’s bow is pretty much nonexistant. Defining it a bit with lip liner always ends badly. Any advice?
