Which of These Signature Red Lipsticks Are You?
In a roomful of women, you notice the one with the boldest lip. Bold usually means red.
All women can wear red lipstick. It is, in fact, the most versatile lip color you can wear. You just need to choose the one with the right undertones.
Here are five lipsticks that you should definitely have. But first, here's a quiz you should take to know which signature red lipstick matches you:
MAC Cosmetics Matte Lipstick in Russian Red (Php 1,050), available at MAC Cosmetics stores
Ruby Woo is more popular than Russian Red but the latter, for me, is more wearable. It is a Matte but not a Retro Matte like Ruby Woo so it's less drying, too.
I missed Hot Stuff's first release in crayon form for Happy Skin's collaboration with Preview Magazine. I bombarded Happy Skin's Instagram page with requests to bring it back (no joke) and they did (not because of me) in liquid lipstick form. This is one of the best reds out there. It's a dark red with blue undertones.
Yesterday i snagged this red lip from the @sephora_scandinavia counters. @katvondbeauty Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Underage Red! I would say this must be the most beautiful full red ive ever worn! So light, creamy, full coverage, matte, and long lasting!!!! The red has a little blue undertone on me which makes my teeth look really white!!! 💋💋💋💋 @nyxcosmeticsnordics @miststockholm and @urbandecaycosmetics on my eyes for that rainbow 🌈 spectrum! @katvondbeauty lock it concealer + @narsissist sheerglow foundation on the face topped with @miststockholm banana powder! @sephora_scandinavia @sephora blush @loraccosmetics pro contour palette @anastasianordics @anastasiabeverlyhills brow pomade in soft brown topped with clear brow gel @anastasiabeverlyhills @anastasianordics glowkit in sunbeam @miststockholm silk cruelty-free lashes 💕💕💕💕
Despite it's inappropriate name, this lipstick is a must have. Kat Von D's liquid formula is one of the best out there and this red is just amazingly opaque.
Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Underage Red ($20), available online
Tatcha Kyoto Red Silk Lipstick
This universally flattering pink-based red is a cult favorite. At $55 a tube, it's not cheap or easy to find but it's worth the effort and money in terms of color and texture.
This lipstick is a medium red with hints of red and berry. It's actually not a true red but it's a lipstick that looks good on any skin tone. It comes in two finishes--satin and matte.
Dior Beauty Rouge Dior in 999 ($35), available online
