LipsticksThere's no feeling quite the same as pulling out a beautiful tube of red lipstick- I have so many of them! Lipsticks are usually quick and easy to apply, especially for touch-ups when you're out on the town.
1) MAC Mattene Lipstick in Eden Rouge
This gorgeous, slim tubed semi-matte lip color is limited edition, so hurry before it flies off the counters! The perfect hybrid of long-wearing color and comfortable wear.
2) Too Faced La Creme Color Drenched Lip Cream in Stiletto Red
If you want an ultra silky, glossy lip color, this one is for you. It smells incredible and feels even more luxurious on the lips!
3) Tarte Glamazon Pure Performance Lipstick in Wild
This clay-infused lipstick gives you long-wearing color with comfortable hydration. It also helps to restore your lips natural moisture barrier too!
Glossy BalmsIf you're not quite a lipstick or gloss person, but you still want to rock a gorgeous red lip, then you'll love these ones! With the color of a lipstick, the shine of a lip gloss and the comfort of a lip balm, you just can't go wrong with these products! They won't last all day, but you'll definitely be giving your lips a treat!
4) Lise Watier Lip Kiss Crayon Gloss in Rouge Flamenco
Glossy balms don't have to be sheer- this lip color is super full coverage, and the gorgeous metallic finish will give you an ultra glam look. Plus- it's in a creamy pencil form so it's super easy to apply.
5) Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter in Candy Apple
Want to tone it down a bit and sheer it out? This lip butter will give you a gorgeous sheen with comfortable wear, but you can wear it sheer if you want too (or build it up for more color- the choice is yours)!
Liquid Lip ColorsIf your red lips need to last all day or all night (or both), then you'll want to try out one of these liquid lip colors. Once they are on, they're on for good- so you have to be very precise (even pull out that lip brush if you need a little extra help).
6) Make Up For Ever Aqua Rouge in 8 Iconic Red
This is hands down my favorite red lip product to date. I love how invincible it is! Waterproof, smudge-proof, transfer-proof & fade-proof... go ahead and forget it's there- it will look flawless all night!
7) OCC Lip Tar in NSFW
Lip Tars are pretty much in a class of their own, with unbelievable pigmentation, these minty lip colors are also great for mixing and creating your own unique shade!
8) Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Beso
The pigmentation of this liquid lip color totally blew me away! It is ultra saturated and rich, plus it's so weightless, you'll barely feel anything on your lips.
Lip GlossesYes, you can totally get a super opaque, fire-engine red lip from a gloss! Skip the lipstick entirely and go straight for the gloss if you want an ultra plush, juicy pout in just seconds.
9) Milani Haute Flash Full Coverage Shimmer Lip Gloss in Hot Flash
This inexpensive, full-coverage lip gloss will blow you away! It's ultra shimmery too for an eye-catching, glamorous effect.
10) Cargo Lip Gloss in Tokyo
This gloss is so unbelievably creamy and smooth- no stickiness at all! It lasts a surprisingly long time though, for such a comfortable gloss. Plus- the angled doe-foot applicator works so much better for applying gloss precisely!
