Is there anything better than a bold, red lip? The way it makes you feel. The way it makes you act. The way it makes you want. Anything is possible.
I remember growing up and watching my Mom at her vanity, getting ready to go out for the night with my father. And right before she walked out the door, she would apply her last and most powerful statement piece. Her red lipstick. I was hooked! And the moment she left, I couldn’t wait to dive into her makeup bag and create my own “beauty look.” You have to start your beauty journey somewhere! Bottom line, let’s celebrate this magical tool called red lipstick!
And today just happens to be National Lipstick Day. So in honor of my favorite beauty product, I have compiled a list of my favorite 5 red lippies. Now go get ’em beauties!
Kevyn Aucoin “Confidential”: This sleek lippie glides on like a dream, and with precision. And the payoff is an intense color, without being heavy.
Clove + Hallow “Fiesta”: This liquid to cream dries to a velvety, matte texture. And it doesn’t smear or budge. Fact.
Shiseido Cherry Festival 266: If you like your red a little on the pink side, then this is for you. It’s a long-wearing gel, and it always makes heads turn.
Glossier “Fete”: For when I just want a touch of red and not too pigmented, I go for this balm. Easy to wear, day or night.
Senna “Heart Throb”: This uber-moisturizing matte leaves my lips so incredibly hydrated, thanks to its key ingredients of moringa oil, shea butter + mango seed butter, and silica. Kissabley soft.
Do you have a favorite red lipstick or gloss? I want to know! Happy National Lipstick Day!
