Beauty, Makeup4 Essential Red Lipsticks For your Beauty Wardrobe


Let’s stop calling red lipstick a trend and start calling it what it really is–a staple. As with any wardrobe essential, I believe in buying that perfect product in various shades and textures to have one on hand for any mood or occasion that may come calling. Below, the four shades you’ll need to for the complete red collection.

The Festive Red

For dinner parties, girls night out, or whenever you’re feeling cheerful and whimsical. Pair with gold baubles, champagne shimmer, chevron stripes, and cozy angora sweaters. Try Kate Spade Beauty Supercalifragilipstick! in Fanciful Merlot , a creamy and cushiony red that adds a bubbly, spirited look to any outfit.

The Fiery Red

Think fire engine loud, racy, and even more striking than your classic crimson. Wear with plunging black tuxedo suit (nothing underneath!) and nails to match or whenever you’re feeling daring. NARS Cinematic Lipstick in Short Circuit, inspired by the provocative photos of Guy Bourdin, blends just the right intensity of red and orange with a glossy finish for even more sex appeal.

The Vampy Red

Dark, deeply-hued, and dramatic. Wear to channel your inner Dita von Teese whenever. Kevyn Aucoin Expert Lip Color in Blood Roses is the perfect black-red that doesn’t wander over into purple territory.

The Retro Red

A gorgeous true red that’s neither too bright nor too dark and best worn matte. Matches everything from evening gowns to jeans. Lipstick Queen Velvet Rope Lipstick in Brat Pack keeps the color classic but upgrades the technology for a formula that’s weightless, nourishing, and long lasting.
