5 Best Red Lipstick Shades That Will Never Go Out of StyleSeptember 19, 2018
Red is a lipstick shade so iconic that every beauty lover needs at least one in their stash. And while the road to finding your perfect red lip is based on the individual, there are a few shades that work for a wide range of people. Ahead we’ve rounded up the red lipsticks that will never go out of style — from a drugstore pick that is cheaper than a latte to a creamy lip stain that is perfect for women of color.
Peep our picks, ahead:
This water-in-oil emulsion is designed to deliver lots of pigment while maintaining a weightless feel — that means your lip won’t dry out while you wear it. For best results, shake before applying and let it dry down. At $22 a tube, it’s a mid-range beauty buy that’s definitely worth the price tag.
There’s nothing like a matte red lip — especially when you use it to create a statement makeup look. This suede matte lippie from NYX does just that. It’s a full-pigment formula inspired by their suede matte lip liners and creates. Pair Spicy with a liner of your choice to intensify the look or create some added dimension.
If you’re looking for a red that looks good on virtually everyone, take Sephora’s Always Red for a spin. The soft matte formula feels silky when applied but dries down to a long lasting matte finish. It’s also great for your lips too and is infused with avocado oil and other nourishing, lip loving ingredients.
When you mix matte lips with a soft, effortless finish, you get the Urban Decay lip mousse. The formula is buildable so you can rock it as a stain or build it up to create an opaque finish. We recommend Amplify for the red lipstick enthusiast — it’s a deep red shade that’s bold enough to make a statement but can also be worn everyday.
This luxe, pigmented lipstick feels amazing on the lips and offers intense hydration. Color 01 has a satiny finish so you won’t have to struggle with the drying feel of an ultra-matte formula and comes in a luxurious gold bullet that will add to every vanity. It’s an iconic shade (hence the name 01) and looks great on a wide range of skin tones.
