February has me overdosing on all things red and let’ssss be honest, there’s no better time than now to rock a bold red lip! I know there are a million options out there (and trust me, I’ve tried a TON) but there are a handful of red lipsticks that I swear by! 💋 There are a few shades that I’ve been wearing for what feels like decades, and then a couple new colors that I’ve learned about more recently. Since I know a lot of you girls love a red for this season, I pulled together the best of the best red lipsticks. All 5 colors happen to be MAC – I’ve always enjoyed their texture and colors!
So here are my Top Five Favorite Red Lipsticks that I highly recommend. I pretty much ALWAYS wear a lipliner with all my lipsticks and totally feel undone if I don’t. It’s pretty genius (and SO helpful) that now they sell them in a duo so no more guessing which color to pair them with! So let’s get to it.
Ruby Woo –
First up is Ruby Woo! It was probably my first red lipstick I ever purchased for myself a million years ago and is that universal red that looks great on just about everyone.
If you are looking for that POW in-your-face show-stopping red…this is it! I always get so many compliments whenever I rock this one. I tend to go for this one on special occasions or a fun girls’ night out. Definitely a great one to have in your makeup kit.
Ahhh Chili, hands down my most worn red ever. It’s a little deeper than the rest and bit more understated. It always gives me that classy Old Hollywood vibe and LOVE it! It’s also the one I’m wearing in the above photos. If I had to choose ONE it would be a tough call between this and Lady Danger but would have to go with Chili!
Russian Red, another classic that you honestly just can’t go wrong with. It’s the perfect shade and looks great on everyone!
Is a newer lipstick in my kit but has been used a ton. This style of Mac Lipstick is a bit more moisturizing and the color is a bit more of an understated red – similar to Chili.
and here’s a swatch of all five of them if you girls want a closer look….
Okay so I clearly have an addiction to Mac lipstick and know there are TONS of different reds out there from different brands. If you have a red you’re obsessed with, please share! I think I want to try one from NARS next!
I’m also giving away a lipstick goodie bag to two of you! Just leave a comment below and on my Insta post today telling me YOUR FAVORITE RED and the winners will be announced here (and on my IG post on Sunday!)
