Favorites: Red Lipstick

Pink may be my favorite color, but when it comes to lipstick red is my go to hue. I'm usually wearing red lipstick about 90% of the time...and even that isn't nearly enough. Since I often get asked what shade of lipstick I'm wearing, I thought it would be fun to put together my current five favorite lip colors that are in my makeup bag. What I love about all of these is how long they last. Long lasting red lipstick is super important to me! I don't want to be applying it every few hours.

To me this color is the purest red I have found. When you think red lips, you think Russian Red!

This is a brighter red with a slight orange tint to it. It instantly brightens up my face when I wear it.

This shade of red is leaning a little more to the violet and berry end of the spectrum. I wear this for a more dramatic and sultry look.

This feels like a gloss, but holds up like a stain. This shade of red leaves my lips looking like I just ate a bowl full of cherries.

When I really want bright and bold lips I wear this lip stain. This color literally lasts all day and it isn't drying like how stains typically are.

Do you have a favorite shade of red? Please share it in the comment section I'm always wanting to try out new makeup (especially when they are recommended).

Ah! I always hear such good things about Russian Red - definitely need to pick that up the next time I'm grabbing things from Sephora. :)

Yes, Russian Red is my go to red! It's perfect for me. I also love Revlon balm stain in Standout and NARS matte lip pencil in Cruella. The Sephora Passion Red lipstick is gorgeous too! I love a deep berry red to switch things up.
