I’ve never met a red lipstick that I didn’t like. But in terms of red lipsticks that I LOVE I’ve put together the following list of my favs from 2016 to spring 2017. Holiday party season may be over, but there is no reason why you can’t wear red lipstick all year long. It will always be a classic. Channel Marilyn Monroe with a true red like Smashbox Be Legendary Lipstick in Bing Matte (the matte texture gives it a modern feel) or vamp it up with Revlon Ultra HD Gel Lipcolor in 750 HD Lava. If you’re like me, you’ll fall in love with everything on my list.
I Heart Red Lipsticks!
The Body Shop Colour Crush Matte Lipstick in Havana Red is a true matte red. A new launch from The Body Shop, this lipstick is made with high-purity pigments for intense colour while giving a nourishing, long-lasting finish.
Smashbox Be Legendary Lipstick in Bing Matte is a classic matte red lipstick that suits any skin tone.
Smashbox Be Legendary Lipgloss in Orange Light is part of the limited edition holiday release of the Light It Up Gloss Set. This set of 5 glosses is 50% off at Sephora so snap it up quickly.
Revlon Ultra HD Gel Lipcolor in 750 HD Lava is 1 of 15 shades from Revlon’s spring launch. A gorgeous orange red, this lipstick gives a serious pop of intense colour.
Covergirl Outlast All Day Color & Gloss in Richest Red 130 is a cool 2-in-1 colour & gloss duos for Spring (I shared my fav pinks HERE). This bold fire engine red is the perfect hue. I love that you can wear the gloss on its own, or gloss up the cream base to achieve serious intensity!
Anastasia Liquid Lipstick in American Doll is one of my favourite splurges of the season. A long-lasting, full-coverage matte lipstick in liquid form.
Marc Jacobs Le Marc Lip Creme in Bad Behavior 256 is a stunning long-lasting crimson creme.
Smashbox Be Legendary Lipgloss in Ruby Light is part of the limited edition holiday release of the Light It Up Gloss Set. This set of 5 glosses 50% off at the moment at Sephora.
Make Up For Ever Artist Rouge Lipstick in M401 is a limited edition hot red by Swedish electropop duo Icona Pop.
Bobbi Brown Luxe Lip Color in Tawny is one of two hues released in the Holiday Wine and Chocolate collection. Another long lasting hue, this reddish brown cream lipstick is long lasting and feels luxurious on.
Revlon Ultra HD Gel Lipcolor in 715 HD Aribica is 1 of 15 shades from Revlon’s spring launch. Aribica is a gorgeous pearly mocha brown that reminds me a colour Rachel might have worn in Friends.
Urban Decay Vice Lipstick in Bruise is a warm plum with a natural finish. This lipstick was a limited edition release in the fall. I can’t find it online anymore, but you may have luck in a Sephora or Urban Decay store.
