Colour Story || Seeing Red

Wednesday, April 29, 2015

I love colour to be part of all different areas of my life so I thought it would be fun to start putting together some of my favourite colour collections and no better place to start than with my favourite colour, red.

I don’t know if it’s to do with me being a Taurus or what but I love red.  You can brighten up any look with a red lip and the Taylor Swift Red album easily brightens up my day.  Also it’s one of those colours when I wear it I will always get comments from people that it’s “my colour”. 

I could have easily listed out 20 of my top red picks in this post but I have cut it down to just three of my favourites. For lips it was a close call between Bourgois Rouge Edition liquid lipstick in Hot Pepper and Mac Ruby Woo (see my review here) but lately I am gravitating towards this Bourgois red more and more. It is slightly on the orange side so perfect for Spring. It also really lasts all day and isn’t too drying. For nails I have far too many red polishes to even count but I love this mini Nails Ink polish in  the shade Victoria and Albert. I can’t justify buying the full size but they are a great quality to use and it’s a perfect pillow box red.  Also the name just brings back great memories of visiting the V&A on my trip to London years ago (see that post here, please excuse the dodgy editing), love that place! Finally I had to go with my favourite headphones from UrbanEars. They are a perfect tomato red so instantly pick me up whenever I wear them and it doesn’t hurt they are great sound too! 

Now I must go attempt to buy some items in a different colour palette, I’ll start after I purchase a red salad spinner I have my eye on ;)

Do you have a signature or favourite colour you can’t not buy every new item in? Let me know! I need new inspiration.
