Red Lipsticks: Reviews and swatches

Red lipstick is always a statement. It is a color that draws the eye and is probably the color you think of when someone says “lipstick”. I own several red lipsticks each for different occasions.

The first two red lipsticks are my more casual everyday type lipsticks. They are my two red Revlon lip butters: Red velvet and Cherry Tart; for a full review of them go here.
Cherry tart is a sheer red with sparkle and Red velvet is darker, almost berry red.
Since they are sheer and moisturizing they are very easy to wear and touch up throughout the day. These are great if you are still not sure if you can or want to wear red lipstick.

My next red lipstick is a version of the classic red crème: Wet n’ wild silk finish lipstick in Cinnamon.

This is a neutral to slightly cool toned red with great pigmentation and is very easy and slick to apply; for more information go: here.

My last red lipstick is a drugstore version of the famous MAC Ruby woo. It is Wet n’ wild megalast lipstick in 911D: Stoplight red.

It is a neutral to cool toned matte red lipstick. It applies well and is not that drying (but maybe a little), and lasts for a long time. It is almost and exact match for Ruby woo; it is just not quite so extremely matte.  (And it’s $1.99!)To make it more matte you can blot or add a thin layer of translucent powder over top. Personally, I do not like extreme mattes so this is the lipstick for me!

I hope this article inspires you to break out one of your favorite red lipsticks. (or check out one of mine!)
