Retro Chick Reviews: Max Factor Colour Elixir Giant Pen Stick

It’s time for another red lipstick review. It’s been a while, in fact it’s been a whole year. Last week I popped into Superdrug to experiment with foundations seeing as it appears my favourite shade in my existing brand has been discontinued and got a free Max Factor Colour Elixir Giant Pen Stick with purchase, […]

Retro Chick Reviews: MUA Lipstick Shade 13

MUA is a brand that several people mentioned when I asked for brands to review. It’s SUPER cheap, and I mean super cheap. It cost just one measly pound for a lipstick. If I am ever utterly destitute I know that a trip to Superdrug and I will be able to remain red lipped for […]

Retro Chick Reviews: Revlon Fire & Ice

Revlon Fire and Ice is a proper Vintage Lipstick. By which I don’t mean that it’s a 30 year old lipstick. I meant that the shade has proper vintage pedigree, being introduced in 1952. I will, as ever, start with the lipstick chart. Revlon Super Lustrous in Fire & Ice is £7.49, so falls into […]

Retro Chick Reviews – MAC Ruby Woo

It’s time for another red lipstick review. I’ve been putting off reviewing this lipstick for a long time, as although it’s a really popular one, I just don’t like it! However, I thought it was time that it got it’s place on the chart so we can see how I find it compares to the […]

Retro Chick Reviews – No 7

My last red lipstick review was in April, would you believe it! I’ve been using this one for a while now. So I thought it was time for a review. The lipstick I’m reviewing today is Boots No. 7 Moisture Drench lipstick in Dare Devil, which costs £10. First, the chart. You’ll notice as it […]

Retro Chick Reviews – No 7 Poppy King History Lipstick

I wasn’t planning on reviewing another lipstick for a while… Then I got an email about a new range for No 7 by Poppy King, and would I like a lipstick to review *sigh*. Well, I couldn’t resist! The Poppy King range for No 7 consists of 7 shades, priced at £12 each, available from […]

Retro Chick Reviews – Rockalily Lipstick Roulette Red

I know, another lipstick review so soon after the last. I don’t want you to get sick of them, but I’ve been waiting to review this particular lipstick for some time, and now I’ve got my mitts on a tube I couldn’t wait! Today I shall be reviewing Rockalily Lipstick in Roulette Red, priced at […]

Retro Chick Reviews- Natural Collection Cherry Red Lipstick

Another red lipstick review for you…. Lets start with the wonderful chart. I’ve been trying to alternate between the pricier and cheaper ends of the scale. This time round I have a lipstick that was recommended to me by a few people on Twitter. It’s down at the cheapy end. Natural Collection Moisture Shine lipstick […]

Retro Chick Reviews – Arbonne Runway Rouge

This is the last of the lipsticks I have been sent by PRs to review…. I will be purchasing some of the more common brands myself to try out (so expect some cheapies!) and I might put out another shout to the PR world for lippies to try! This time it’s another brand I hadn’t […]

Retro Chick Reviews – Collection 2000 Volume Sensation Ruby Red

I’d like you to imagine red velvet curtain…. Now mentally swish it aside to reveal…… A TABLE! These are the lipsticks I have reviewed so far, painstakingly marked out of 10 in 5 categories and then ranked in order. I was pleasantly pleased, once I’d scored them all, to find that they actually came out […]

Retro Chick Reviews – Du Wop Private Red Lipstick

Still not finished that comparison chart. Sorry! But won’t it be worth the wait?! Today I am reviewing a lipstick by DuWop in Private Red. We’re back up at the pricier end of the scale as this one is available on QVC for £16. The Blurb This is a magic colour changing lipstick. Oh yes. […]

Retro Chick Reviews – Stargazer Lipstick Shade 135

Today I’m right back down at the bargain end of the scale. On my last review it was suggested that I should start a chart with details of the lipsticks and update it as I go. I was intending to do this once I’ve reviewed all the lipsticks I have, but I shall start working […]

Retro Chick Reviews: Bare Minerals – Red Velvet Cake

The hunt for the Perfect Red Lipstick continues….. I’m trying to alternate my reviews roughly between lipsticks at the premium end of the scale and ones more toward the “every day” end of the scale. I’m hoping that by the time I’ve reviewed as many lipsticks as I can get my hands on I’ll be […]

Retro Chick Reviews: Prestige Colour Treat – Romantic Red

Still searching for the perfect red lipstick. The Besame Lipstick giveaway winners have been announced, and today I will be reviewing a red lipstick that’s on the affordable everyday lipstick end of the scale. Prestige Colour Treat Lipstick in Romantic Red at £6.49 each. The Blurb Prestige isn’t a brand I was familiar with before […]
