It’s pretty rare to find makeup that is made with redheads in mind, but finding makeup made for Strawberry Blondes is nearly impossible! So I was very excited when I saw the latest Colourpop lippie shade, called Fighter, was made for Jessica Chastain to wear at the 2015 Met Gala.
It’s everything you want a red lip to be: pigmented, creamy, and long lasting. The formula is matte and it’s truly a perfect shade of red. The liner pencil and lippie lipstick are each only $5.
I think it’ll be gorgeous on other complexions as well, I actually just ordered an extra tube for my makeup artist kit, I love it that much! It’s just flat-out perfection.
I find that this shade lasts especially long if you fill in your lips entirely with the pencil first, then add the lipstick over. It’s a blue-based red, which makes your teeth look whiter. The liner is very matte and the lippie is matte but with a creamier feel on the lips.
Here are some swatches of the shade and comparisons with the other Colourpop red shades I own. I included some swatches of my favorite red lipstick shades for redheads, the Nars Matte Lip Pencil shades in Dragon Girl and Cruella.
I love looking at swatches and especially comparison swatches!
