With Valentine's Day coming up in a week, I thought I'd share some of my favorite red lipsticks I've been loving.
Red, red, and more red. I love red lips. Red lipstick is such a classic look and suits all skin tones. I tend to go for a matte look as I like the feel and staying power. My first high end matte red was MAC's Ruby Woo, and that changed my life forever.
If your thinking about doing a red lip this Valentine's day, here's my top 5 you have to try. P.S A few are by my favorite Bad Gal Rhianna.
MAC Ruby Woo- A retro matte (long-wearing) full color cool red with intense color payoff in one swipe. (Picked in white is Rhianna's Riri Woo- Rhianna's signature statement line with MAC. All the benefits of Ruby Woo but a limited addition). Even though they are the same. Of course I had to get my hands on both. Don't judge. ;-).
MAC Chili- A creamy rich Lipstick formula with high color payoff in a no-shine matte finish. This one is for those day's when my lips need a bit of TLC but I want to still rock that classic red look with simple makeup. I find Chili to be on the warmer side.
Smashbox Always On Matte Liquid Lipstick in Bawse- If your looking for a really long lasting, stay all day color. Then this one is for you. A liquid matte lipstick that feels light, stays put, and delivers pigmented color for eight hours. Like hello! Another true cool red that will have your teeth looking super white and it won't dry out your lips.
And now to my top two beauties that I have been rocking a lot....
Fenty Beauty- Stunna Lip Paint Long-wear Fluid Lip Color- You have no idea the level or obsession I have for this beauty. This weightless, high impact, soft matte universal red is everything. With one swipe the color payoff is phenomenal and stunning (hence it's name). When I tell you that I picked this baby up as soon as it hit stores, it was love at first site. And I've been loving it ever since. I really like the fact that the applicator delivers the perfect amount of product for both lips. It's a winner for me.
Fenty Beauty Mattemoiselle Plush Matte Lipstick in Ma'Damn - royal red- Honey when I say Yesssss.... I mean HELL YESSSSS... This one is a diva. A petal soft, long wearing lippie that will have you slaying all night long. You have not lived until you try this one. You must try them all.
With that...go grab one of these and rock your Valentine's day with your someone special, or with your girls. Either way trust me you will fall in love.
