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.
