Here are a few of our members favourite red lipsticks:
Australis Velourlips in NY-CEE
“I bought the Australis Velourlips in NY-CEE, which is a classic red. It glides on easily, is very pigmented, dries to a matte finish pretty quickly, and is extremely long-lasting (no touch-ups needed!). -bh member Tiffany128
Rimmel London Kate Moss Matte Finish Lipstick in 111
“I brought the Rimmel London Lasting Finish Lipstick in the shade #111 which is a classic true matte red shade - one that I think every woman should have in her collection. The formula of this lipstick is creamy and smooth, it glides over my lips with ease without any tugging or difficulty.” - bh member aleksandra
essence Longlasting Lipstick in 02
“The essence Longlasting Lipstick was smooth in application, didn't smudge and had a really beautiful colour. The only complaint I have is that it did tend to wear off after two-three hours.” - bh member EMaddden
Maybelline Colour Drama Intense Velvet Lip Pencil in Red Essential
“Love, love, love this velvet lip pencil! After buying the red one 'Red Essential', I went back the next day and bought four more while they were still on sale! They are extremely pigmented and buttery on the lips. They last all day and there is no need for a lip liner with them.” - bh member ElissaG
M.A.C Lipstick in Russian Red
“I've used the matte lipsticks in MAC's collection, and I love how pigmented they are. They can be a little drying - so if you have dry lips you'll need to exfoliate/apply lip balm first. One swipe is all I need with these lipsticks, and if you blot them, they'll last ages. I can wear them for hours and even though the colour may fade a little - it's still there! They have a lovely range of colours and one of my favourites would have to be Russian Red.” - bh member jennkitty
