6 “True Red” Lipsticks to Add to Cart in 2021February 25, 2021
L’Oréal Paris Brilliant Signature Shiny Lip Stain Lipstick in Be Brilliant
For major color payoff, we recommend this high-shine red lippie that has the wear of a lip stain and the finish of a gloss. Be Brilliant is the ultimate poppy red whether your skin is fair or deep.
YSL Beauty Rouge Pur Couture x Zoë Kravitz in NYC Jungle
NYC Jungle is a reliable red you’ll want to keep in your makeup bag at all times. It never fails to add a pop of color when you’re transitioning your look from day to night. This creamy lipstick only requires one to two swipes to fill your entire lips and feels hydrating for as long as you wear it.
Giorgio Armani Lip Maestro Liquid Matte Lipstick in 400
This cult-classic true red lipstick is a makeup artist favorite for good reason. It has a cool undertone that perfectly complements fair, medium and deep skin tones. Although it’s matte, we love that it doesn’t make lips feel dry or cakey.
Sephora Collection Cream Lip Stain Liquid Lipstick Always Red
This true red feels light as a feather on the lips and provides transfer-proof coverage, making it mask-friendly.
Kosas Weightless Lip Color Lipstick in Thrillest
With jojoba oil, rosehip seed oil and mango seed butter, this true red hydrates and softens while it warms up the face.
NYX Professional Makeup Shine Loud High Shine Lip Color in Rebel in Red
For a true red duo that allows you to go matte or shiny, try Rebel in Red. One side is a saturated bright red matte liquid lip (with slight magenta undertones), and the other is a clear glossy lip topper that you can wear over the red or on its own.
