Red lipstick is currently my jam, MY JAM, I tell ya! I’m in LOVE. I love how bold it is, the pop it brings to a natural look and how it can transition from day to night. Its like the bow on your beautifully wrapped package.
I’ve rounded up my top 5 favorites for the summer. Number one has been on SERIOUS repeat.
Top 5 Favorite Red Lipsticks
Revlon’s Super Lustrous Lipstick in Love That Red
NYX’s Matte Lipstick in Eden
Sonia Kashuk’s Moisture Luxe Tinted Lip Balm in a Tint of Red
Neutragena’s Moisture Smooth Lipstick in Classic Red
Covergirl’s Colorlicious Lipstick in Hot
Since red lipsticks can be so bold and rich, a few tips are needed:
1. Always remember to line your lips to prevent the lipstick from bleeding and to define lips. My favorite is the Sonia Kashuk Lip Definer in True Red. I use it with all the red lipsticks I own.
2. Fill your lips in with the liner before applying your lipstick. Lipstick tends to run off throughout the day and in between eating and drinking. The liner will hold the color and make sure you’re not walking around with patchy colored lips.
3. Be sure to blot your lips to prevent smearing or lipstick on your teeth (yikes!) Plus, I think it looks a lot better.
4. FINALLY. If you ever find yourself with red stained lips from your lipstick, turn to your trusty…TOOTHPASTE. Toothpaste is a great weapon for removing stubborn stains. With some warm water and a washcloth, you can have fresh + clean lips.
What shade are you rocking this summer?
