I apologize for posting this so late in the week, but I’ve been dealing with the stomach flu since Monday, so I’ve spent most of this week in bed. Last week I shared with you my top 5 lipsticks for Valentine’s Day. Well today I’m pulling out my favorite red lipsticks for Valentine’s Day. Red is one of those classic lipstick colors that looks great on anyone, you just have to find the right hue for you.
1. MAC RiRi Woo (Limited Edition) Mac Cosmetics; $15.00
RiRi Woo was the first lipstick Rihanna released from her RiRi Hearts MAC collection. It’s a nice blue based red lipstick with a retro matte finish. If you missed out on this one, MAC’s Ruby Woo is extremely similar. The undertones are a tad bit different. This is a nice true red lipstick.
2. Viva Glam Rihanna, MAC Cosmetics; $16.00
I reviewed this lipstick a few weeks ago. It’s a lovely red lipstick with gold frost. This shade looks great on all skin tones.
3. Wet n Wild Spotlight Red, CVS and Walgreens; $1.99
Wet n Wild has some amazing lipstick shades for a great price and this is one of them. Spotlight Red is supposed to be a matte finish, but as you can see on the picture, it’s more glossy than matte. I still love it. It lasted on my lips for 5 hours, so it has some staying power.
4. Wet n Wild Cherry Picking, CVS and Walgreens; $1.99
Another lovely Wet n Wild shade. Cherry Picking is more of a pinky-red. Very pretty on the lips. The only downside of Wet n Wild lipsticks is that dreaded packaging.
5. NYX Perfect Red, Ulta; $5.99
I picked up Perfect Red this weekend. It’s my very first NYX lipstick. I don’t know what took me so long because I just LOVE the way this feels on my lips. Perfect Red is a matte finish, but it’s not drying at all. Definitely add this to your red lipstick collection.
So these are my red lipstick picks for Valentine’s Day. Let me know if you wear any of these!
Thank you so much for reading!
