2. Mac Cosmetics’ retro matte in ‘Ruby Woo’
A cult favorite shade that has been around for ages, and for many reasons. Not only does this color look great on everyone, the blue undertone helps your teeth look more white than yellow. This ultra-matte lipstick has a comfortable wear formula that stays all night! Just make sure to exfoliate your lips before application to prevent them from looking chapped, and you’re good to go. You can get it here.
3. Stila Cosmetics liquid lipstick in ‘Beso’
This bright red has a fun and summery feel to it, and these liquid lipsticks are one of the best in the market. With a moisturizing matte formula that doesn’t bleed or transfer, it’s perfect. And for the girls who like a little less of an impact, there’s also ‘Sheer Beso,’ so you can get the pop of red without it looking too extreme. Get it here.
4. NARS Cosmetics semi-matte lipstick in ‘Jungle Red’
This iconic red is loved by many all over the world because of its comfortable formula – it’s not overly drying and it’s full of pigment. It makes the perfect cherry red that is fun, sexy & powerful, and you can get it here.
5. NYX Cosmetics lip suede in ‘Cherry Skies’
You can never have too many red lipsticks (just like shoes, duh). Matte lipsticks can be overly drying at times, so finding one that has enough moisture is always a win-win, just like this NYX lip suede. With a slightly deeper variation of red, this liquid lip goes on like butter, and with the drug store price-tag it is bound to become one of your favorites! Get it from NYX Cosmetics here.
6. Too Faced Melted Matte in ‘Lady Balls’
This statement color goes on like gloss but dries like paint. With long-lasting power and vibrant color that will last all night, you can forget reapplying and focus on all the other important things your date night will consist of (*wink wink*). Get it here.
7. Clinique Dramatically Different lipstick in ‘Red Alert’
Not everyone loves a matte lip, so for those girls we have the Dramatically Different lipstick that has a sheer formula but with enough pigment to elevate your look from bland to bold! Get it from Clinique here.
8. Nars lipstick pencil in ‘Dragon Girl’
Drama, drama, drama. This fiery red is a staple in many celebrity makeup bags because this highly pigmented pencil doesn’t require multiple coats, just one to last through all the drinks on date night. Plus, the pencil tip is fine enough to line lips with precision and thick enough to help fill in your lips with ease. Shop it here.
9. Flesh Beauty in ‘Shiver’
A beautiful bright red with a hint of coral and great for girls who love a flush of color without it being too overpowering. This product can be applied with your fingers to give you a hint of color to your lips and looks natural that can be worn during the day and night. Pro tip – pat on lips for a daytime date or smear on for night time, and top it off with your favorite clear gloss. Plus, it doubles as a blush! A solid 2-in-1. Get it here.
