There’s nothing like a crimson lip to make a style statement, but not all red lipsticks are the same. Here are our favourites and why the girls at SHE love them.
Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick in Infra Red. Deep colour. Beautiful finish, long lasting and great value. – Priya Kumar, Executive Editor
If I ever have to wear a red lip, it is a toss up between Vasanti Gel Matte Lipstick in True Love or the Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Cruella. The latter is always in my makeup bag for a quick pick me up. I am also partial to Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet liquid lipstick in Personne ne rouge. These are insanely pigmented with a demi-matte finish that doesn’t dry out the lips and lasts a really long time. – Aaisha Zafar Islam, Associate Editor
Anything by Revlon, their lipsticks last forever and their shades make a great makeup stash. – Deidra Barton, Editorial Intern
MAC Russian Red, the quintessential red for girls with warmer skin tones. With an orange base, this the a timeless neutral red for a glammed up look. NARS Dragon Girl Velvet Matte Lip Pencil is rumoured to be Taylor Swift’s iconic choice of red, this intense cherry tone is blue based, making it perfect for those with cool undertones. MAC Ruby Woo has that signature matte finish. This lipstick’s blue undertone is as vivid as it can get without being noticeable, helping teeth appear as white as possible. – Lindsay Cooper, Editorial Intern
