Coloured Raine on dark skin | UK Stockists and Swatches

This is a review for Coloured Raine liquid lipsticks on dark skin. I will be trying out colours that I dont have in my lipstick collection at all.

Reflections on my first month and ColourPop giveaway | The winner is….

I took a leap of faith when I started this blog. I had previously started a blog in 2014, but I got discouraged and allowed my personal insecurities to get in the way, so I closed it down after a few weeks. I started thatredlipstick.com not knowing what the outcome would be. Whether it will be useful for people or not. I just decided to go for it.

Buying Colourpop in the UK | Part 1

ColourPop’s popularity has gone through the roof with their great quality but very affordable products i.e eyeshadows and lipsticks. They have products in a variety of shades which will suit different skin tones. Everyone can find a shade of lipstick or eyeshadow that suits them. Their Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks are great. The lipsticks dry matte and do not budge all day. There is no need to reapply. Did I mention that they are cheap as chips?! But….they do not ship to the UK or internationally!
