My Top Five Halloween Lipsticks & The Best Fake Blood

My Top Five Halloween Lipsticks & The Best Fake Blood

So Halloween. I kinda love it. But I also kind of hate it for the simple reason that my birthday is the day before and when I was a kid all my friends would turn up to my birthday parties dressed as ghosts and zombies. Born a true attention seeker and drama queen at heart, there wasn’t enough focus on me and my birthday and then for years after that I resented halloween for stealing my spotlight. Sigh. And whilst I may be slightly less jealous of halloween’s attention stealing abilities now, I’m still a little opposed to it. Hence the no halloween looks on my blog yet (maybe at all). Nether the less, halloween is the perfect excuse to wear all the vampy/red/dark lipsticks and whip out the fake blood. So here are my faves.

Ben Nye Thick Blood

It’s just the perfect thickness and pigmentation, easy to build up and it dries fairly quickly. It’s the only fake blood I’ll use and worth a small investment.


Loreal Colour Riche ‘Blake’s Red’

Rimmel Lasting Finish ‘Starry Eyed’ 128

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream ‘Copenhagen’

Mac Matte ‘Diva’

Mac Satin ‘Rebel’

Happy Halloween everyone!
