Find your perfect red lipstick
Not all red lipsticks are created the same. Some are more blue, some more orange, some more purple.
So if you’re on the hunt for a perfectly pigmented rouge to brighten up your day, the first step is to establish what kind of red you’d like on your lips. And just to make it easier for you to figure it out, we’ve gathered together some celebrity inspiration:
Rihanna’s fire-engine red
This show-stopping bright and vibrant red lipstick is one of the most sought-after shades, and for good reason too. If you’re after a true red, try one of these lipsticks:
Max Factor Colour Elixir Lipstick in Ruby Tuesday – Not only will you be thrilled by how perfectly red this is, you’ll love how long-lasting it is, too.
Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Fire & Ice – Fun fact: this shade was first released in 1952 and it’s still one of the bestsellers. Goes to show what an iconic red it truly is.
Maybelline New York Color Sensational Vivids Lip Color in Neon Red – It’s no coincidence that this red is so bright and vivid; it was especially designed to be so glorious.
Designer Brands Eternal Colour Lipstick in Red Robin – The full-coverage lipstick is perfect for those looking for a glossy finish.
Psst! Do you want Rihanna’s actual lipstick shade for yourself? Then get your hands on MAC Lipstick in RiRi Woo.
Taylor Swift’s slightly-orange red
If this is the kind of result you’re after, your best bet is to find a red lipstick with orange undertones in it. The orange pigments in the lipstick can add that extra bit of brightness you’re craving. Try one of these:
L’Oreal Paris Infallible 2-Step Longwear Lipstick in Red Infallible – You’re just two steps away from a vibrant finish that’ll withstand eating, drinking, and kissing.
ModelCo Party Proof Matte Lipstick in After Hours – Despite its matte finish, this lipstick is super-nourishing and won’t cake or flake.
ck one color Pure Color Lipstick in Little Liar – The name says it all: the lipstick is pure colour. Oh, and it’s not drying either, so it’s a win-win situation.
Savoir Faire Lipstick in Risque – You’ll love this warm orange-based red as much as you’ll love the magnetic case. Hooray to no more lipstick spillages in your bag!
Anne Hathway’s vampish red
This shade is somewhere between a true red and an oxblood (a dark, wine-coloured hue). This finish is a bit darker and has some purple tones to it. For a sultry finish, try:
Rimmel London Kate Moss Lasting Finish Matte Lipstick in 107 – Don’t be frightened by the colour you see above, it doesn’t come out as dark. The finish is a deep, rich red that’ll leave you feeling like a million bucks.
The Body Shop Colour Crush Matte Lipstick in Crazy Sexy Crimson – This is your dark hue go-to if you’re after intense colour and a subtle shimmer finish.
Couleur Caramel Certified Organic Lipstick in Matriochka Red – This lipstick can give different results depending on how many layers you wear. The more you build it, the richer the colour.
MeMeMe Satin Lip Cream in Aphrodite Ruby Rich – This rich red finish feels and smells as good as it looks. Shea butter will keep your lips soft while a hint of vanilla will be a treat for your nostrils.
