The colour RED signifies strength, power, desire, passion and love. Turn heads in these perfectly bold shades as I share with you the best red lipsticks that look good one everyone!
The Best Red Lipsticks
Last year, I did a blog post about the best drugstore lipsticks and I was inspired this week to do another. This time, I’m talking about REDS! What better time than the week before Valentine’s Day to talk about beautiful, sexy lipsticks.
Why do I love bold lips? These shades draw attention to your face, make your teeth look whiter and give you an air of confidence. And wearing them truly IS about confidence. Anyone can pull them off, you just have to believe you can. Give any of these reds a chance and I swear, it will change the way you look at lipstick.
The Perfect Red
A good red lipstick can be tough to find because they really need to match your skin tones. One that looks good in-store under the fluorescent lights may look awful in the natural light of your home. What you thought was red now looks too orange or too pink, too dark or too light. I’ve been there! So to share my love of red, I’ve picked out the best shades that would look good on any skin tone and in any lighting! Just pure, beautiful RED.
These are worth the splurge and you can pick them up online or try them on (like I did today!) in department stores like Nordstrom, The Bay or Sephora. If you haven’t tried a cream matte liquid lipstick yet then PLEASE try one of these. They wear so beautifully, provide rich colour and last all day long without wearing off!
Mac Lipstick Viva Glam I – a blue red with rich brown undertones. This is everyday my go-to shade!
Mac Retro Matte Lipstick in Ruby Woo – a beautiful red with blue undertones
Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Cruella – a stunning deep red that looks great on everyone. It was a birthday sample from Sephora a few years back!
Nude Stix Intense Matte Lip + Cheek Pencil in Royal – another gorgeous pencil that comes with it’s own sharpener.
Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Beso – showing off this bright red in all the photos you see here! This shade actually inspired this blog post!
Too Faced Melted Matte Liquified Long Wear Lipstick in Lady Balls – a deep red similar to the one above. My newest purchase!
Sephora Cream Lip Stain in Always Red – the most popular red at Sephora.
P.S. Spread the love, share this post with a friend!
Such a fabulous post I’m going to take it to sephora and The Bay! I think we share taste at MAC. ❤❤❤

May I add Rimmel London’s “Lasting Finish by Kate – Rosette 01” and “e.l.f. – Wine” lip crayon? Those are my 2 favorites.
Of course! Maybe I’ll do a drugstore version next! Thanks Anna!
