I've noticed that I have quite a few bright red pieces in my wardrobe, I just love how it's such a statement colour, and also how timeless it looks when paired with black. My favourite must be this red blazer from Asos, and lo and behold, I love it more for the black accents from the lapels, along the pocket, and the button.

To finish off this look, I'm going bright on the lips too, wearing Rimmel's Apocalips in Big Bang. It's the most vibrant red lip colour I have ever seen, and the formula is amazing. If you're a beauty junkie I'm sure you've heard this all before, but it's a mediator between a lipstick and a lipgloss, creamy, non-drying, crazy pigmented, basically, I just love it! I would advise lining the lips with a red lip liner prior to application for a more precise and sharp finish and to avoid bleeding. At the time these shots were taken I had temporarily lost my red lip liner, (this happens to me quite often ><" but I've since found it lying on my car floor), and had to apply this directly onto my bare lips. However, I was still very satisfied with the finish, the doe-foot applicator is lightweight, and small enough to perform with precision as long as you have a patient and steady hand.
For £5.99 each I think it's a pretty reasonable purchase, I even bought it in shade Apocaliptic, and am currently contemplating purchasing more.
