My Favorite Red Lipsticks

Since we're still in the month of love, I thought it would be appropriate to share my favorite red lipsticks with y'all. As you can probably tell by my blog tagline "slap on some lipstick and smile," I love lipstick! A bright red lip can quickly pull together a look and add an extra bit of glam. I've tried numerous red lipsticks in a variety of formulas, but today I'm sharing with you my top 3 of all time!

MAC Matte Lipstick in Russian Red

This has been my go-to red lipstick for years! It's a classic red that looks great with any makeup look. Not only is it super pigmented, but it doesn't dry out the lips even though it's a matte formula. If I could only recommend one red lipstick to you, this would be the one! BONUS: it looks great paired with the MAC Lip Pencil in Cherry.

Smashbox Always On Matte Liquid Lipstick in Disorderly 

If you're looking for a deeper red lipstick, this is the one for you. The formula is extremely lightweight while also being long wearing. Like the MAC one, it has a matte finish. I absolutely love to wear this when I want to branch out from a traditional red! 

Colourpop Ultra Satin Liquid Lipstick in London Fog 

This is another lightweight liquid formula, but unlike the previous two, has a satin finish. The great thing about this formula is that even though it's a satin finish, it still dries down and doesn't smear everywhere. This is the brightest and most blue toned red out of the bunch, but its' still one of my favs!



I hope y'all enjoyed this post and found it helpful. I'd love to know what you're favorite red lipstick is!
