As soon as I feel those temperatures drop, I start reaching for my favorite red lipsticks. Now, I might randomly break out one throughout the year. However, in the fall and winter, these are my go-to lip products.
Keep reading to full list and details.
First, I have to apologize for the first one because it was a limited edition that came out a couple of years ago. Initially, when MAC announced that they were doing a collaboration with the estate of Selena, I knew that there would be a red lipstick. A fierce red lip was one of Selena’s trademarks and I was right. The collection had a red lipstick and red liquid lipstick. I went with the liquid lipstick ‘Siempre’ and it’s so good! It’s medium-dark red lipstick with cool undertones. The undertones makes it great red lip for all year round, but I’m very selective about when I break it out.
Let’s talk about the NYX High Voltage lipstick in Bordeux, which is a very deep red burgundy. This lipstick is very pigmented. Sometimes, I use this as a lip stain, because it gives the perfect bitten lip shade that’s similar to Clinique’s Black Honey – just pigmented.
Another deep burgundy lip product I love is The Lip Bar liquid lipstick in Bawse Lady. This shade is a true red shade that compliments most complexions. This formula applies and initially looks like a gloss, but dries into a velvety, matte texture. The only thing that I don’t like about it is that it can start to crack later in the day if you move your mouth a lot. However, it does last all day, which is a win.
If you’re looking for a true blue red lipstick, MAC Brave Red is it! Most people probably think of Ruby Woo as the ‘it’ red from M.A.C.. However, too many people sleep on Brave Red. It’s a semi-gloss and that has the right amount of sheen. To me, this the shade and texture I think of as a classic red shade that looks good on practically everyone.
Finally, FENTY lip paint in Stunna has become one of my faves! One of my favorite things about this liquid lipstick is that it looks like a different shade on everyone, but it’s equally fabulous. It’s a soft matte finish that lasts and holds up well all day.
