Let the games begin! Kourtney, Kim and Khloe took to Instagram with red lipstick selfies that were absolutely kissable. But which Kardashian sis wins in the battle of the rouge and how can you get that luscious look at home?
On August 20th, Kourtney, Kim and Khloe Kardashian had a sisterly bond by way of a photoshoot for their new hair product line, Kardashian Beauty Hair. As expected, the girls looked stunning with perfect flowing locks, flawless skin and their signature smoky eyes. Also, each of the three reality stars flaunted ruby red lips. But which of the trio had the best pout? Only their selfies will tell!
Kardashian’s Red Lip Battle
When applying red lipstick, everything has to go right, and of course, in Kardashian land, this is never a problem. The three beauties’ lips were flawless, perfectly penciled and filled in with beautiful shades of true red. But which sister’s lips take the cake based off their selfies?
While this quite honestly may have to do with lighting more than anything else, we have to give Khloe a strong 3rd place. While she looks absolutely beautiful in her pic, her lips are barely passing for red. Whether this is because the color has faded over the course of the shoot, or like we said, just a matter of lighting and angle, the fact remains that her red is the least red of the three.
Between Kim and Kourtney it’s definitely a tougher call, but personally I have to give Kourtney second place. There is no doubt she is sporting a perfect pout in her pic, but her lips lack that extra bit of shine that little sister Kim masters so well here.
While Kim definitely had lighting in her favor, she also seems to have the best application. Her lips are bright red and perfectly shaped with that extra hint of gloss that makes them picture perfect.
Luckily, you can easily achieve Kim’s glam look at home. The first step, as always with a bold lip, is to exfoliate the lips. This can be done with a store-bought lip scrub, or my fave homemade remedy of lemon juice and granulated sugar. Following the scrub, lightly line the lips with a red pencil — you do not need to go heavy here — this is just a guide for you once you get to filling in. For the lipstick itself, I love Sephora Collection Color Lip Last in Matte Red. Remember to use a brush for this and take your time.
Of course, the final touch, as we learned from Kim, is a matching gloss, which you should reapply frequently in order to avoid pulling a Khloe or Kourtney.
Who’s your red lip winner, HollywoodLifers? Kourtney, Kim or Khloe?
