Red Hot Vs Hot Pink Lips + Revlon Colorburst Swatches

Which do you think would win in a war between Hot Pink Lips and  Red Hot Lips?

Revlon Colorburst ~ Fuchsia & True Red


I believe anybody can pull both off when it's the right shade.
Lets see what complements these two classic "will always be in" lip colors......

~ Eye Make-up ~

Red ~ Neutral eyes compliment them the best, but shades of grey are also fine.

Hot Pink~ You can wear pale pinks, purples, mauves, greys, neutrals. Some can carry very heavy smoky eyes with hot pink lips (think Kim K and Katy Perry)
*Black eyeliner, mascara and falsies complete both lip colors.

~ Base, Blush & Bronzer ~

Red ~ You have to pick a blush that's closest to the color of your natural flush (think Mac's Ladyblush, Lilicent, Posey). Something peachy-nude or neutral roseA shade that's darker can make you look clownish. Some skip the blush completely when wearing a red lip, but I feel blush is what you need to balance  bold lips


Hot Pink ~ Go with all shades of pink blushes!


I personally prefer a matte base with both lip colors. Highlighting just the high points of your face is acceptable as long as you don't go overboard . As for bronzer, I feel you should skip it when sporting red or hot pink lips unless you're very very pale.

~Outfits~

Red lips~ Go with black, white, grey, some yellows, navy, some shades of green.

Hot Pink Lips ~ Go with black, white, grey, pinks, navy. Cheryl Cole once wore a yellow outfit with hot pink lips, which I did not like at all personally and too much bronzer in my opinion.


So, which lip color would you dive in front of when the trigger is pulled?


Red Hot or Hot Pink?


For me, it's "hands down" Hot Pink Lips! *.* just coz I think hot pink is a younger color and suits me better (and I'm not saying I don't like red lips ;) )

  13. Hot pink, here.

    But on me, I'd only wear red lips. I can't do hot pink without my teeth going all yellow. LOL

  14. Hot pink lips here too! I LOVE red lips on others but I feel like it doesn't look good on me.. Or I haven't found my perfect shade of red. But I definitely will keep trying :) I think red is such a classic colour. But for now, I stick to my hot pink lips :)

  18. Very good tips there! I think for me, hot pinks would be better for daytime, and reds for evenings. I find red too much for daytime. :)

  19. I know this is a little late in the day, but I would pick Red. Coz I don't think I could must up the courage to wear such a bright pink! Gawd, I am weird - I can wear hot red, but am scared to wear hot pink. :P

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
