The Best Red Lipstick

Red lipstick is my absolute favorite! I wear it non-stop from like November-January and then again for like 3 weeks leading up to Valentines day. There just is no better time for red lipstick than December though, so I wanted to share a few of my favorites!


Out of the three this is definitely the most subtle. Subtle is not my style when it comes to lips but I really like this because I keep it in my purse and it is perfect to touch up any red lip throughout the day. It is not matte so it definitely isn't drying.

I got this liquid lip for $9 and good news it is still on sale! This red is so pretty and more of a wine red than a true red. I really like the formula of this, it wasn't too drying and this liquid lip did NOT budge. Seriously, no movement, no transfer, nothing. I really recommend this one and I may get a true red in this formula!

This was definitely my favorite color and if I'm not in the mood for a matte lip I do reach for this one.  I really like Smashbox's lipsticks because they are very, very comfy to wear!

I do not have a steady hand so when I apply red lipstick, especially liquid lipstick I like to go in with a liner first. I really like this one and it is only $1.99!

The two products pictured below (lip balm & lip scrub/Similar) are ones I like to use before my makeup and even on days where I don't wear makeup. Also when I apply my foundation I usually go over my lips too just so you get the true color of the lippie that I am wearing.


I have also tried this Urban Decay Vice (714, I think, whatever their true red is) in actual lipstick form and I LOVE it. Honestly it wasn't included today because I have no clue where it is! Trust Me from colourpop is also a very good true red!

Ok- so this week on the blog is going to be beauty week! Tomorrow I'll be recapping my makeup routine and have a few more beauty posts planned for later in the week! So, stay tuned!
