The Only Three Red Lipsticks You’ll Find in my Makeup Drawer

Hello February! There’s no better way to kick of this romantic month than a little red lip post! There’s something about a red lip that can make the most casual of outfits seem just a bit more chic andmore pulled together. It’s classic, timeless and just down right fun! December and February are always a good excuse to rock a red lip but I’m on a mission to wear one year round! When I think of red lipsticks there are always three that come to mind so today I’m sharing my favorites …..

I love each of these lipsticks in today’s post for different reasons but mostly it depends on my mood and look. So first is probably my most worn red which is this Lipstick in Chili. It’s been a staple in my makeup drawer for close to a decade and I can’t get enough of this deeper more old Hollywood red. It’s sexy, subtle and classic. I like to pair it with this lipliner in the color Brick.


If you’re looking for true classic red you honestly can not go wrong with Ruby Woo. It’s probably the most traditional perfect shade of red out there and it’s flattering on pretty much all skin types too. They make the matching lip liner to go with it HERE.

and last but not least…that in-your-face red you need in your makeup drawer is Mac Lady Danger. It is seriously so good! Vibrant, playful and show stopping. I always get asked what color it is when I’m wearing it and highly recommend it!  I like to pair it with this lipliner in Ruby Woo  or this lipliner in Holy Red.


Alright I know these were all Mac lipsticks but those are my top three go to’s!  I’d love to hear your must have red lipstick too!

  1. These are all pretty red’s but they look horrid with my fair, cool toned coloring. I love Girl About Town and Orchid by MAC. They are both gorgeous on anybody who is fair and cool toned.

  2. I’m red headed, and I’ve read that we need a blue based red lipstick…… Can you tell me how do I know if it’s blue based?? Or can you tell me some that are?? Thanks 😊

  3. These are my tops too! Add in Marrakesh (an ahmaaazing red with some toasty brown undertones) and you’ve got my lip drawer.😍
