My Stash of Red

This post is a strict reminder to myself that I'm not allowed to buy red-reds anymore. ANYMORE, I say. 



L-R: Guerlain Rouge G Garconne (worn here), Dior Ara Red #999 (worn here), Burberry Military Red No. 310 (worn here), Dolce & Gabbana Iconic (worn here), Rouge d'Armani #400 (worn here), Rouge Bunny Rouge Raw Silence (worn here), Bite Pomegranate (worn here), Chanel Rouge Allure Laque Dragon (worn here), Ellis Faas L201 (worn here)

I can't believe I've previously shown every single one on the blog. Also, Military Red reflects less light compared to the other shades. Is that why it appears matte on our lips?

  1. So pretty! I have a similarly large collection of reds - I know I've reviewed about 15 on my blog, and then I have another 8 or so drugstore ones that I've swatched but not reviewed. Perhaps I will assemble them someday for a photo, but I'm a bit scared to know how many I have!

    I think I should probably stop buying red lipstick too :/

    1. Thanks, Emi! I have a bunch of other reds that I missed, probably. And other nuances... Currently concentrating on vamps

    1. I really should wear it more often than I do, but it's such a hassle to maintain

  4. milktea said... aww.. there are only 9 red-reds here (not enough!) and they're all gorgeous! btw, didn't you get a traditional red lippy from your Kyoto, Japan haul too?

    1. I did! I wonder where that went - I totally forgot about it. Just goes to show that I really shouldn't get
      more though :(

  6. I love this post. I've been meaning to find the perfect red for fall and you've definitely helped me narrow down my choices.

  8. Eeep. I think my own stash looks very similar! XD So...no more reds for me, either. Sigh.

    1. Just red-reds! Not... you know, other reds.

  9. Oh Xiao, I can't believe you're doing this to me! I just started getting into reds, and you have to put a bazillion lipsticks on my wish list? THIS IS NOT EVEN FAIR LOL

  10. Ugh, your reds collection <3 I need more moody/vampy reds! Most of mine have either been discontinued or are too warm/bright for what I've been wanting to wear recently.

  11. Nice collection... I just started wearing red, and started with cheaper drugstore brands first to test the waters and see what type of reds I like. By looking at your collection, I think we may have similar taste in reds. :)
    If you want to read and see some of the drugstore reds, check out my blog entry, red sexy lips, get yo sexy on. kekeke I was kind of blown away by the drugstore brand qualities!
    I'm gonna have to try out the Dior and the Bite one too.

  12. I have Garconne, and I keep telling myself I don't need more reds because I never wear them, but that Rouge d'Armani is calling to me...as is the Burberry, of course.

    1. It's like Halloween candy. I don't eat them, but I want to (and eventually) buy them anyway.

  13. Wow...look at all those pretty reds! LOVE!!! :D

  14. Not to be an enabler, but you look so pretty in red lipstick! Not everyone can wear reds as well as you do. Lovely collection. I think I need to check out the new Burberry Lip Velvet formula.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Even more than the paper swatches, the arm swatches look so pretty! You do really wear them well.

    Love the new blog format.

  16. I think Larie would disagree :p.

    Also, I need that Rouge d'Armani in my life!

    ReplyDelete
  17. That Ellis Faas looks very creamy and interesting!! I don't really wear red lipstick but I think you look so sexy in red lips!

  18. You look amazing with red lips. It inspired me to venture outside of my comfort zone and try it out! I have a few reds now, but I keep gravitating towards the same kind of red. I'm trying to stop myself from buying more, but.. maybe after I take a look at the new Burberry lippies.. :3

  19. You also once posted a pic of yourself in a LMDB Neiman exclusive red-a lip creme I believe, it's in my bathroom, I am too lazy to go get it. At any rate, you put the posting on your blog and I picked it up while on vacation, by the pool with my husband and two children. It was so stunning I got up, used the hotel's car service to rush over to Neiman Marcus and get the lip color, so there are definitely more reds you have left out! Lol

  20. I decree (with my minimal powers) that you can have as many red lipsticks as your heart desires... because nobody rocks red lips like my Xiao. :D

  21. You look absolutely gorgeous with red.
