Red: the color of love; the color of rage. Whether you’re enjoying Valentine’s Day with a special someone or with your special lonesome (like me), a nice bold red or pink lip shade will complement any plans you may have. For a kiss-proof Valentine’s Day lip, I like to lean either towards a matte lipstick or liquid lipstick because both will last a long time on the lips without smearing everywhere. These are the best bold red/ pink lipsticks for Valentine’s Day, in my opinion at least.
Liquid Lipsticks| As we all must know by now, and if you don’t then now you do, I have been obsessed with liquid lipsticks for quite some time now. Lucky for me, more and more brands, mainstream and indie, are releasing their own liquid lipsticks so now they are readily available everywhere. My favorite red liquid lipstick is Beso, which is a part of Stila’s Stay All Day liquid lipstick range. This is a very vibrant red that will stay on your lips through the night. If you prefer a darker red liquid lipstick then I suggest you check out either Heathers from Anastasia Beverly Hills or Vampira from Kat Von D. Both are two of my favorites, especially Vampira, which I have had for several months now.
If you want a deeper pink liquid lipstick for the night, I would check out another Kat Von D liquid lipstick that has become my favorite, Bauhau5. This is a dark raspberry shade that literally looks gorgeous on everyone. If you can run to your nearest Sephora and pick this up I definitely recommend it.
Matte Lipsticks| If you aren’t really down with the liquid lipsticks or cannot get your hands on them I suggest going to your local MAC store because they have some gorgeous bold shades that are perfect for Valentine’s Day. Of course the first two shades I have to mention are cult favorites, and they are Ruby Woo and Russian Red. Both shades are extremely popular and I understand why. I have a whole comparison between the two if you just can’t decide. For a deeper darker red, I suggest Diva, which is also by MAC. It is a deep reddish burgundy shade that is also very popular and has a growing fan-base. I talk about MAC lipsticks as if they are celebrities, but they kind of are! If you were able to get your hands on Fashion Revival, which was part of their matte lip collection that was limited edition, I would tell you to dust this one off and take it out for a spin this Valentine’s Day because it is a GORGEOUS deep pink shade. By the way, if you weren’t able to get your hands on this, I am hosting a giveaway on my Instagram page and this is part of the giveaway!
