Few of My Favorite Things: Red Lipsticks

best red lipsticks

Over the past year I’ve tried many red lipsticks and came up with my own chart of the best and favorite ones!
Most of the colors I’m using have blue undertone in them to visually whiten up the smile, plus they look better with my skin tone.

Starting from left to right I’ll review each lipstick.

Too Faced La Crème

in 9021 Ohhh:
Has an orange undertone on my swatch, but looks incredibly beautiful on my lips. I’d call it natural “lips red as the rose” Snow White color. It’s semi-sheer, creamy, very hydrating lipstick/balm, which won’t stay on your lips the whole day, but it does hydrate and give you that natural bright red lip.

Real Her Cosmetics

in I Am Powerful:
A perfect fall/winter dark red/plumy lip shade. It’s classic lipstick for all occasions and has long-lasting, high-pigmented color.

Mary Kay

in Midnight Red:
Plumy red color, which can be worn not only for the fall/winter time, but also in the middle of spring. Goes well for coffee break & dinner date as it stays on your lips through the whole eating/drinking process.

Bourjois

in N34 Cherry my cherie
This gem was repurchased 3 times now. It’s matte, non drying and long lasting lipstick. Having full lips I tend to stay away from all the glossy colors as it makes my lips look too big (or maybe I just didn’t find that perfect glossy color). To me, it’s the perfect shade of red.

Real Her Cosmetics

in I Am Fierce:
Has a rich bright red color, well pigmented and doesn’t dry your lips. One of my must-have reds.
