Affordable Red Lip

Hello Sweets,

May I introduce to you my favorite drugstore Red Lip of this moment; It is the Rival de Loop Young 'Red Earth nr. 18'. I got it on sale for €1, normally it costs €1,69. This doesn't put a dent in our wallets like the high end brands tend to do and Rival de Loop is the home brand from a German drugstore called 'Rossmann'. Rival de Loop has a fantastic range of products. Their duo make up remover is also very loved among the beauty bloggers, although I have to say that it burns my extremely sensitive eyes, still the majority loves it. You might want to give it a try.

This lipstick has the perfect red shade for everyday use. It is semi opaque, has micro gold glitter, which you almost can see with your bear eyes, you need to zoom in on the picture to see it.   It is very moisturizing, long lasting and very comfortable. The scent kind of reminds me of the Haribo cherry gums. The packaging isn't much, but therefor it doesn't weigh two kilos like my Rouge Guerlain, and is easy to take with you. Your handbag won't weigh you down, unless you do like to take your whole household with you, which a lot of women out there seem to do. The bigger the hand bag, the more we will hoard in there.

For only €1.69 this lipstick beats my €25 Chanel of which I don't even like the scent of. I am not the rosy scents kind of girl. Too much grandma factor there for me. I am very sensitive when it comes to scented make up, especially lipsticks. If I don't like the scent, the lipstick can have the most beautiful color, I still won't wear it. My nose is too close to my mouth, and I have a highly developed sense of smell.

For the German SmoonStyle readers; go check out this lipstick at your nearest Rossmann. For the international readers that will visit Germany and are looking for an affordable red lipstick, this is definitely your pick when you come to visit us.

What are your favorite drugstore red lipsticks that you are loving this moment? My favorite matte lipstick is Revlon's 'Really Red'. I wore it on the 'Vancouverite' blogpost. Which is your favorite lipstick when it comes to scent? Mine are Rival de Loop Red Earth and the Maybelline Super Stay 14 hour lipsticks. My high end pick would be the YSL Sheer Candy mmm.

Let me know what you think in the comments below!

Red kisses,

  2. Lasting Finish by Kate Moss for Rimmel in 01 is my favourite! I've been using it every since it came out, I've never had a better colour. At £5.50 it too is affordable.

  3. I get a $2 mascara from the drug store, it is very nice especially for the price. It's called "Maybelline Great Lash."

  4. I love Red Lipstick! Hmm..drugstore lipstick I use the Dior Homme. It is part of my daily life and style. I like the matte effect. That you showed in this post looks very beautiful. Do you know the collection of Marilyn Monroe's Mac? I'm in love with Marilyn Monroe MAC Lipstick 35!

  5. I love Louma´s "Private Call" as well as Kikos "Apple Red", NYX "revamped", Lushs "A Million Kisses" and my absolute Favorite is Catrices ""Bloody Red" fro the Revoltaire LE.
    Red Lipstick is part of my everyday life and I never leave the house without. It´s a kind of brand mark...
    "A Million Kisses" is made out of rose petals, so it smells like a rose in a natural way. Kiko and NYX have a chemical smell but luckily they loose it very quickly on the lips. The other ones are nearly free of scent.
    I´ve never had a bad smelling Lipstick which was annoying me all day unless they´ve been too old.

  6. I'm a big fan of Rossmann and I already a few colours of those lipsticks. First I bought a red one and I thought it would be a lot worse because it was cheap but I was wrong!

  7. My favorite Lipstick isn´t a real lipstick at all. It´s from Burts Bee´s and it´s called Lipshimmer. My favorite colour there is the shade "fig". Another great colour is "Terra" from Alverde. The scent is really nice, just a little bit like beeswax or honey. I´m not the girl for really red lipsticks :( they don´t fit with my skintone.

    But red lipsticks are so great to your skintone! I like this one you´re currently wearing very much and the one in the new heading picture, too. Which one is that? Or is it one from Kryolan ?

  8. I didn't knew Rossmann before you mentioned it, thanks for the discovery!
    One of my favorites drugstore products is the English brand 2TRUE. I have used the black liquid eyeliner for some of my make - up posts (on shadows-of-oblivion.blogspot.com) but the star of this brand is of course the bloodred lipgloss (number 10)!!

  12. I actually have a lip balm, which has quite similar tint on it: Aco's Soft red lip balm. Love it! That color reminds me of an apple!

  18. I do adore Rimmel Moisture Renew in "Diva Red". It's a classic shade of red, which suits almost everyone, it lasts for many hours and it's cheap, which isn't bad! :)
    However, you look fab with anything, Simone!

  21. I loved it! Drugstore lipstick may save a look if you find the right shade for your skin colour... At least for me, becouse I love lipstick more than enything in a makeup. Here in Brazil we have some brands, like Tracta, Koloss, Vult.. Some of them have beautiful colours, although they don't stay forever on the lips, exactly... but... You can't have everything! :) My latest addition to my Necessaire was one of Vult, color 45. It's not a red, but a cold wine, very pigmented, but not too dark on skin (well, I'm a MAC NW 45, so...)It's creamy and dramatic. I Love it.

  22. I have been using only Rival de Loop, not young series but I LOVED THIS! So much better! I have never seen a lipstick with a scent like this. Thank you for the recommendation! :)

  23. This lipstick is lovely. I have a big passion for red lipsticks, and in my collection I don't have one with this shade yet. I think I need it!!!!

  24. Hey Simone, the colour looks great! I know a Rossmanstore so I think I will try it. I've been searching so long for a red lipstick. Do you know "Lips2Last" by Manhatten? Looked great at first, but it's actually peeling off...

    ReplyDelete
  25. My favourite scented lipstock is also YSL Sheer Candy. I wore it all summer and am completely addicted!

    This red you show is absolutely beautiful, but in France we don't have Rossman... do you now a MAC lipstick shade that could come close to this one?
