Finding the Perfect Lipstick
Of course, the key is to find the perfect red lipstick for you right? Luckily the beauty experts over at L’Oreal have worked it all out for us. Here is all the information you need to pick the perfect red lipstick.
Now that we know which shade will look best, let’s get to the fun stuff. SHOPPING. Here are some of our favorite red lipsticks:
- Of course, we had to start with MAC Ruby Woo. This is a Vivid bluish-red, matte red lipstick. GORGEOUS!
- Up next is a drugstore find. Rimmel London Lasting Finish by Kate Lipstick, 001 is a deep, dark red that is long wearing that won’t give you a panic attack if you misplace it.
- Next is another matte red lipstick. We love the name and the look of Milani Matte Iconic. This lipstick has a lightweight creamy formula and moisturizes & nourishes lips. So important for a matte lipstick.
- The NYX Matte Lipstick MLS10 is another blue-toned, matte red lipstick.
- Rounding off our red lipsticks is the 403 Eva’s Red by L’oreal Paris Cosmetics Colour Riche Collection Exclusive Red’s. Yep, you guessed it’s another matte lipstick (we like those), but it looks amazing.
Liquid Red Lipsticks
One of the hottest trends is the Liquid Lipsticks. We know and we are all over it. Check out these Top Picks for Liquid Red Lipsticks.
- Lime Crime Velvetines Liquid Matte Lipstick – Red Velvet gives a velvety smooth look. It is bold, long-lasting and luscious!
- The newly released wet n wild Megalast Liquid Catsuit Lipstick in Missy and Fierce is just that FIERCE. This drop-dead red delivers on pigment. It even has a unique applicator. I love the way this lipstick looks and feels!
- Now the ANASTASIA Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick in American Doll is what I would consider the ultimate of the liquid lipsticks. This is a full coverage matte lipstick in liquid form. Pricey, but worth it!
No, we couldn’t leave out the hottest liquid lipstick out there now – Kylie Jenner Cosmetics Liquid Lip Kit. This liquid lipstick promises long wearing, and high pigment without drying out your lips. The kit is up there in price but includes the lipstick and a matching lip liner.
