My favorite red lipsticks
“Beauty to me is being comfortable in your own skin. That or a kick-ass red lipstick.”- Gwyneth Paltrow
Something I completely agree with. One of the simplest, most effortless looks for any day is red lips and a bit of mascara. Red makes a statement in many ways, but for me to feel comfortable wearing bold colors they have to meet 2 criteria.
NO FUSS - the feel has to be just right for me. If too creamy red can smear or smudge. If too matte it could be drying. I don't want it to bother me, or I will try and wipe it, or baby it.
RIGHT COLOR - fall/winter I am more drawn to blue reds, while in spring/summer time I lean toward brighter red tones. Key is finding a shade that works with mat skin tone, so I am comfortable wearing it.
My red lipstick lineup:
Red for all seasons and occasions
MAC - Glam
MAC - All fired up (retro matte)
MAC - Viva Glam Rihanna (frost)
Make up Forever - Rouge Artist intense
Laura Mercier - Portofino red
MAC - Razzberry
Il Making - Matte Geisha
MAC - Relentlessly red (retro matte)
Here are all the colors on my skin to show different hues and undertones.
In order of favorite #1 Glam & #6 Razzberry are my two go to reds and I use them the most. Glam is a true red and Razzberry more of a pinky red. I love MAC lipstick because it is very pigmented and lasts. My preference is matte, but I am open to cream as well, but not really into shears.

Throw a red into your shopping cart this spring and kick some ass. Be Awesome and Sparkle.
