My Favourite Red Lipsticks

As it's valentine's day today I thought I would do a quick post on my favourite red lipsticks. I love a classic red lip and my collection is slowly growing! I didn't use a lip liner in any of the photos so please excuse the application!
This is one of the more subtle red's that I own, I would feel completely comfortable wearing this in the daytime. This is perfect if you don't feel confident enough to wear a full on red.
This is probably my most worn lipstick, on nights out if I can't decide on a lipstick then I always reach for this one. It's a Lustre formula so it doesn't last particularly well but it is a gorgeous colour, it has a lovely shimmer in it which you can't really see in the picture, it definitely needs to be seen in person.
This came out with the Hello Kitty collection but I think it has been re-promoted since. This is slightly darker than Hollywood Red but it's still very wearable and a lovely colour.
This is the classic Mac Red, it's a matte colour so can be quite drying so applying a lip balm beforehand is essential. It lasts a long time on the lips and is a beautiful colour.
This is one of the more orange toned reds that I own. It's a lustre so again it doesn't last as long on the lips but it's worth it.
This is my all time favourite red and the one that I get comments on every time I wear it. It lasts so long on the lips that rather than having to reapply you generally need to remove it at the end of the night. If I could only have one red then this would be it. Absolutely gorgeous!

Are there any reds that you love?
