Favorite Red Lipsticks

Red Lipsticks are confidence boosters. That I believe. But some go as far as to say that women who wear red lipsticks have better careers and success. Really?! I don't think so.
I'm somebody who used to have a red wallet because according to Feng Shui, red wallets attract money. I was in college and always broke, so I thought it was the best piece of information I'd ever heard and I believed in it until...I couldn't afford a bread pakora from the college canteen. Of course I didn't have enough money to begin with and I always had expensive taste, but still.

Anyways, here are my Favorite Red Lipsticks:

  • Colorbar Velvet Matte Hot Hot Hot ~ So HOT!
  • Revlon Colorburst True Red ~ Really a true red. Finish is awesome, but I don't like how wide the tip is. Not very easy to apply with.
  • Make Up For Ever Moulin Rouge ~ The most pigmented of them all
  • MAC Heartless (Venomous Villains Evil Queen) ~ I'm so glad I got this. It's superfabulous! Swatch below.
  • Shu Uemura RD 165S ~ This has silver shimmer, and I heart it coz it makes my teeth look really white.
  • MAC Viva Glam Cyndi Lauper ~ I realized this isn't really red, but it belongs in the family.
  • The Balm Read My Lips Wanted ~ Has a pink undertone 


With Flash

(L-R)- Colorbar Hot Hot Hot, Revlon Colorburst True Red, MUFE Moulin Rouge, MAC Heartless, Shu Uemura RD 165S, MAC Viva Glam Cyndi Lauper, The Balm Read My Lips-Wanted



I have done lip swatches of all of them (you can see list in Lipstick Drawer tab), except MAC Heartless....

*I don't know why the lipstick has those unattractive spots =\


Those are my favorite red lippies. Next on my wishlist are MAC Russian Red or Ruby Woo. For years I've been swatching them in stores, but I just can't decide which one to get. I also like Maybelline Color Sensational in Fatal Red & Very Cherry.

Which are your favorite red lipsticks? Do share.

  1. Gorgeous collection Cynthia! I have Revlon colorburst Crimson and I love it. It is quite cool toned and I'm looking for a hot warm based red. Which one would you recommend? Based on swatches Colorbar HOT HOT HOT and Revlon CB True red seem like good options.

  15. I have Ruby Woo and while I like the colour, it drains all moisture from my lips, so you need to have a really good lipbalm on underneath. There's a red by a company called Vasanti here in Canada called USA. It's a gorgeous matte red that's on my wish list, I hear that it doesn't dry out your lips either. Check it out: www.vasanti.com.

  27. Hi Cynthia!!! I LOVE your blog, and especially this post. I spent the last few months trying soo hard to find the perfect red! I also really like MAC Viva Glam I! The MAC lady described it as a darker, more wearable version of Russian Red, which is true!

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
