Red Lipstick Swatches & Comparison

Like many others, I’m a sucker for red lips and can find an excuse to wear red lipstick for nearly any occasion. Shades of red can vary greatly though so I decided to swatch my whole collection of reds and compile them into this post for easy comparison.

NYX Butter Lipstick in Mary Janes

Mary Janes reads as a very true red to me. It glides on smoothly, is creamy & comfortable to wear and has some pretty good staying power. It also leaves behind a serious stain. I have a more in depth review of Mary Janes here.
