The Red Lip Lineup

The holidays are just around the corner, which means it is time to bring out your favorite red lip products. I’m not a huge fan of red lips on myself, but I do have some favorite red lipsticks that I like to wear when I am in the rare mood to wear one, which generally happens around the holiday season.

Beso| It’s no secret that I love Stila’s liquid lipsticks, and this has been the newest addition to my growing collection. I sincerely hope they release more shades in this line. Anyway, I have had my eye on Beso for quite some time, but it has been sold out online and in stores at every Sephora I have gone to. Beso is a true, bright red. It reminds me of the liquid version of Ruby Woo, which is a cult favorite, and one of my favorites as well.

Wicked| I recently picked up some velvetines from Lime Crime after hearing so many great things about them. Wicked is a deep red color that looks stunning on literally every skin tone. The formula is lightweight, and it dries down to a velvet matte finish, which is my favorite.

Russian Red| If you like a rich, blue-toned, classic red lip then Russian Red is the one for you. Even though it is a matte shade from MAC, which are notoriously known for being dry, this one glides on to your lips smoothly and doesn’t tug. The color lasts a long time and is another favorite amongst beauty lovers.

Ruby Woo| This was one of my first red shades, and has remained one of my favorites to this day. If you like a bold, electric, blue-toned red lipstick you will love this color. However, this is really dry and can feel uncomfortable on the lips. If the formula really bothers you then I would try Russian Red because it is creamier, but it isn’t as neon as this one. If you prefer a liquid lipstick that is similar to this shade, Beso from Stila would be great for you. (Can’t make up your mind between Russian Red and Ruby Woo? Read more here).

Swatches of Beso, Wicked, Russian Red, and Ruby Woo

These are definitely my top four red lipsticks, but who knows, maybe I will add more to my collection soon and grow to like red lips even more.

  • Ruby Woo is also one of my favorite all time red’s :) I also love Illamasqua’s Box – it is a true classic red. I also love Annabelle’s Flirtini – it is a Canadian brand, so I am not sure if you are familiar with it.

      I’ve heard of Annabelle, but I haven’t looked at any of their products. I’ll have to check it out. Thanks :)
