4 Great Red Lipsticks

50 Comments

In the words of Taylor Swift, “And I got that red lip classic thing that you like”…Yes, her and I have 1 thing in common at least, and that is our love of lipstick. Specifically red lipstick. There’s just something about it that’s so classy, it can really elevate your entire look. I feel like not enough of us women step outside our comfort zone and just go for it! Anyone can wear red, it just depends on the shade you need for your skin tone. Since I’m very pale, I know I look best in reds that have a blue-ish tint to them (if that makes sense). I want to share with you 4 great red lipsticks that I use and hopefully this will inspire some of you to go pick up your own and try them out ๐Ÿ™‚

 

4 Great Red Lipsticks

1st, before applying your lipstick, make sure you scrub your lips with a good exfoliant. I use thisย yummy smelling oneย from LUSH Cosmetics.

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in “Love That Red”ย is that perfect true red, there are no orange or pink undertones. It’s a very versatile color that goes with everything. Also, this stuff goes on great and is very moisturizing.ย

Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in “Cruella”ย is another great shade, but is a deeper red with a magenta hue to it. I’d say it’s a pretty sexy shade and is especially great for a night out!

Kat Von D Lipstickย is a fun orangey-red shade that I like a lot. It goes on matte and has good staying power. I like to wear an all black outfit and then put this on for a nice pop of color ๐Ÿ™‚

Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in “Venizia”ย is a pretty pinky red that will be great for the summer months. I got it in my Birchbox months back and loved it. it dries to a nice matte stain and lasts all day!

    Lots of cute red lips. I cant seem to apply lipstick to where it looks good.

    • jessanderson

      Lip liner is key so it won’t “bleed out”. Also, a lip brush can get it nice and perfect ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

    Red lipstick is so different. You would think that red is red but they all look different on each person. Great looks for you.

    • jessanderson

      Thanks Laura! And you’re so right, one red on me might look completely on someone else…

    I have Revlon Super Lustrouis Creme Lipstick in 525 ( Wine is Everything) and been using it for night wear when I need to accentuate and highlight a big smile. My daily lipstick is Maybelline Rebel Bouquet REB08. For a creamy and light shade.

    • jessanderson

      I haven’t tried any Maybelline lipsticks yet! I don’t know about you, but creamy ones r a must have for me, my lips tend to get dry a lot.

    Yes red lipstick with a blue tint (as opposed to a yellow tint) would be better for you with your dark hair. OK, that’s pretty old fashioned, when we had something called “Colorizing” or some such, where we were told what looks good on us and what doesn’t! But the truth of the matter is, even though it’s old fashioned, it’s still true!! I wear red with the blue tint, or hot pink with the blue tint, but not the yellowish! Go for it and you’ll feel terrific!

    • jessanderson

      Hey Tina ๐Ÿ™‚ Yes, you’re so right! Im actually planning on going back to my blonde in the near future but the blue tinted reds will still be my go to.

    I love red lipsticks, they are effortless. I like the plum ones though, like the darker shades of red. These are great, my favorite right now is L’Oreal!

    I LOVE red lipstick, but it looks awful on me. I’ve tried every sort of shade, from orangey to purpley, and red just isn’t my friend. *Sigh*

    I am addicted to red lipsticks and I hoard them, lol. Red Lipsticks could easily make me feel better when Im feeling down or if I need that extra dash of confidence, these red lipsticks never fail to do their work. NARS & Kat Von D are two of my favorite brands. They always make the perfect red shades for lippies.

    • jessanderson

      Yeah I totally agree! I’ve only used Kat Von d lipstick so far but I really wanna to try other stuff from her line. And you can never go wrong with Nars…my fav beauty product ever is their creamy concealer.

    your bag and the red NARS one caught my eye the most … I wear red but it makes me look more fierce and I have the resting B face so I tend to go for nudes.

    • jessanderson

      Haha that’s too funny ๐Ÿ˜‚ Nars has some amazing nudes also
