My Red Lip Collection

Every girl needs at least one red lipstick in their collection; in this case I have several! Red lips are among my favorite to wear because it can transform a whole look and add confidence (to me at least). Here is a peak at my red lip collection, minus my deeper more burgundy/plum lips because I wanted to *try* to stick with the more classic reds. I'll do a separate post on those. ;)

I feel like NYX Round Lipsticks are underrated because they come in a plethora of colors at a great price. I own the shades Snow White (deeper blue toned red) and Chaos (a brighter blue toned red). Both are gorgeous and are a satin finish. I have one from ModelCo in Stiletto that I got in a Birchbox that is closer to a true red. 

I have two red shades from the Maybelline Creamy Matte line in Craving Coral (coral red) and Divine Wine ( a deeper burgundy wine red). Both are amazingly creamy for being mattes, fantastic pigmentation and feel good on the lips. 

I also have an assortment of lip crayons, a gloss and liquid lipstick in varying shades of red! The Jordana Twist & Shine Moisturizing Balm Stain in Rock N' Rouge is more of an orange-toned red while the Jing Ai Velvet Shine Lip Jewel in Rascal has more pink undertones. Revlon Matte Balm in Standout is more of a brick red. A mini NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Cruella was part of the Sephora birthday gift this year, and it's a beautiful scarlet red.

My Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick sample in Beso, a classic, true red. is one of my favorites. A comfortable matte finish that LASTS a long time and stays in place without getting all over my face. Love it. And just because, I threw in my Cailyn Art Touch Tinted Gloss Stick in Love Affair, a very opaque deep brick red/burgundy gloss. It's a nice option when I'm not actually committed to a red lip but still want the red lip effect minus the work.

What is your favorite red lipstick? Do you prefer cool toned, warm toned reds or right in the middle? Comment below!




  1. Cruella is so gorgeous, the sad thing is that I have it and never wear it! Reds are probably my least worn colour but this is definitely giving me a little inspiration to give it another go!

    1. I know I don't wear them as much as I would like to!

  2. This made me want to step up my lipstick game! Haha, I only have one red lipstick but Craving Coral might join the family because it definitely caught my eye.

    1. Haha having this many is not necessary, and quite a few are from my subscription boxes! Craving Coral is a great coral red, I would definitely try it. :)

  3. Great post dear! Have a nice day:)
