I’m not one for wearing bright red lipstick on an everyday basis. I tried it for a while and ended up getting it everywhere! However Christmas time is an exception as I think it is such a festive colour that gets you ready for the season.
The lipstick I use is from Maybelline and is called Pleasure me Red (547). I have a lot of trouble with chapped lips in the winter and so I always have to find lipsticks that seem to be long lasting and moisturise at the same time. This one is amazing for doing so as it goes on extremely smoothly and has quite a creamy texture to it. I feel that I can eat and drink and it is still on my lips by the end of the day. The lipstick itself also has an amazing smell to it. It’s kind of a warm vanilla-ry smell which just adds that little extra something to the stick.
What I also love about Maybelline releasing this colour is that they have also made a pencil in the same Pleasure me Red shade. I have never used lipliner before buying this lipstick but it helps so much on application, especially with a darker more vivid shade like this. If you’re going to purchase the lipstick I would highly recommend the liner to go with it too. It has saved me a lot of time.

I have fallen in love with this Lipstick.
For ages now I have been searching for the perfect red colour. Not Blair Waldorf, pillarbox red but something with a dark, deeper tone. Every one that I have seen or tried has either ended up to be very red, or has a slight pinkish pigment which made the deep red look more like purple.
But, I have finally landed on the perfect colour.
The lipstick is called Pleasure Me Red from Maybelline in the number 547. It is absolutely gorgeous.
I have found with lipsticks that once you have a drink or after a meal they fade or have vanished completely. However with this one it seems to last a whole day without going anywhere.
When you apply the lipstick it has a wet look to it which instantly makes your lips look fuller.
With the colour being quite dark I decided to treat myself to a lip liner (also in pleasure me red) to assist application.
I’ve never really been into lip liners before or ever really tried them out, but since purchasing this one, I can see there being no turning back. It makes applying dark colours so much easier and seems to make the colour last a lot longer than usual too!
The lipstick is quite creamy and feels as though it is moisturising your lips at the same time. On top of this, it smells amazing – almost vanilla-y.
I would definitely recommend this product, even if the colour isn’t for you, then most certainly try it out in a different shade.
