In between projects, deadlines and honing new software for the past four weeks, I've become a slick of mascara and red lips kind of girl. Not one to stray from a faithful feline flick, but a red lip (and another new fave I'm yet to share) give me that pick me up that 6.30am starts need

The L'Oreal Infallible lip liner in Always Toasted acts as a great base before I apply the infamous Lasting Finish by Kate Moss in 01 or the ultimate budget buy, Essence Long Lasting Lipstick in All You Need is Red. Kate Moss' offering leans slightly towards a darker toned red, whereas All You Need is Red is more orange-toned. Both last about three hours before a touch up is required.

Now, I need to stop buying reds (or lipsticks altogether) as my make up bag is half full with them...

What's your favourite red lipstick, or pick me up make up product?
