I've kind of been obsessed with red lips lately this season! I've been wanting a darker red shade for a few weeks and Maybelline Divine Wine was exactly what I was looking for. I wanted this last year but red lips were still out of my comfort zone. I recently saw Elle talk about this in one of her blog posts and I new I wanted to pick it up this year since I've grown more comfortable with bold lips
Maybelline Lipsticks are my favorite from the drugstore. While I was picking up Divine Wine, another red shade called Rum Riche caught my eye. And somehow I ended up coming home with two new red lipsticks. Opps.
Divine Wine is from the creamy mattes line, and I believe Rum Riche is just from the original color sensation line but I'm not 100% sure.
The swatch looks a little bit berry toned but on the lips it looks like a subtle red that has a tiny bit of a brown undertone to it. It may look more berry in the picture from taking it with a flash on. This is a more sheer formula than divine wine. It's pretty on its one and the color is buildable, but I can't wait to try it out with a darker lip liner underneath. It's also a nice color to wear if your not 100% comfortable with a bolder red shade.
Divine wine is a gorgoues dark red color. This is darker than the Cruella shade by Nars that I have. The formula to these creamy matte shades are really opaque and are not drying on the lips like other mattes are.
Here's the two side by side to get a better picture of them than the ones above.
I'm really enjoying these two shades! And like I said before, Maybelline lipsticks are my favorite from the drugstore (and 2nd favorite to Mac ones!). If you haven't tried them before I really recommend them!
What are your favorite red lip shades?
