Okay it’s Tuesday, and we’re discussing lipsticks. Red lipsticks in particular.
I love, love, LOVE a bold, sexy, sultry red lip.
Nothing makes you feel more BOSS than a red lip, amiright?! There’s just something about a good red lip. It can give you all the feels, really. Sassy, sexy, bossy, hottie, and everything in between. 😉
When I look for a red lip, it’s gotta have some major factors:
- Can’t be too drying – I don’t want to be peeling off my lips by the end of the night. Hydration is key.
- NO orangey tones! May work for lighter skin tones, but not for mine.
- Has to bring out the whites of my eyes, and make my teeth look whiter.
- Matte – I just love matte lips. I’m kind of over glossy lipsticks.
- It’s got to last! I don’t want to be reapplying 10 times a night, you know?
Those are some features I look for when I’m looking for a good red lipstick.
As a south Asian girl, it’s HARD finding a good red lipstick to suit your skin tone. They’re usually way too orange or make your skin colour look yellow/greenish. It just looks off, you know? It’s taken a while to find the right red tones that look good with my medium skin tone.
Since the holiday are practically here, I figured I would share the red lipsticks that I’m obsessed with! These are lipsticks that go SO well with my skin tone and look great on both brunettes and blondes. (Since going blonder, I needed to find good red lipsticks with my hair colour).
Let’s get right into them!
THE BEST RED LIPSTICKS:
