As we have entered the season of festivals and weddings, on point makeup would be your goal of this season. Festive seasons always motivate to try something new and bold and when it comes to lips nothing can look bolder, sensual and flattering than a red lipstick. There are many who still feel perplexed on trying a red lipstick and if you trust me, I would say go, girl, give red a shot and you would look gorgeous as ever.

In this generation of online shopping, picking the right red shade can be challenging, there are chances you might pick a red shade that wouldn’t complement your skin tone and that is why I am here to help you pick the right red lip shade. I have picked the shades from brands that have been popular for eons and brands that are new and completely in trend. So check out my top 5 picks of red lipstick:

1. MAC Cosmetics Ruby Woo:


If you love Taylor Swift’s intense red lips, then you should try the classic choice- MAC’s Ruby Woo. it is the perfect bright red that has a matte finish, lasts for more than 7 hours, suits all skin tone and has a pleasant vanilla scent. It can be pricey, but owning a MAC red lipstick is like value for money. The lipstick doesn’t bleed or feather out and the insane pigmentation will stand the meals, drinks- how cool is that?

2. Kylie Mary Jo K Lip Kit:


I know it is practically impossible to get hands on Kylie’s lip kit,  but if her site shows lip kits in stock then grab the beautiful Mary Jo lip kit. This lip shade will amp up your face and is just perfect for your Karwa Chauth and Diwali function. Brides to be, do stash this lippie in your kitty as it will come handy for all the post wedding functions. The lipstick has an intense shade that stays for super long hours, it is smudge proof, doesn’t feather out. It has a cherry frosting smell which can bother some girls, and the only con is that it dries the lips but that is how matte lipsticks are formulated.  

3. Colourpop Creeper:


This is a true classic blue-red shade that glides on the lips easily and gives a super red shade that is ideal for the festive season. Coming to the good things about Colourpop, it is super affordable (wish they launch in India), you don’t have to worry about bleeding, feathering, doesn’t dry out the lips, lightweight, lasts for 8+ hours, transfer proof, smudge proof and is cruelty-free. As it dries out quickly, you need to apply quite fast, moreover, it is best to exfoliate your lips prior applying the lipstick.

4. Maybelline Colorsensational Vivid Matte Scarlet Red Lipstick:


Feel like a celebrity in this bold red lipstick from Maybelline. The packaging is just fine, but the lipstick shade is worth drooling. The texture is creamy, it lasts for 6 hours and stays even after meals and drinks. It is smooth on lips and does dry out eventually. The lipstick has orange hues which I guess would suit the Indian skin tone and it instantly brightens up the face. So if you are looking for a pop of red for the wedding season then do add this to your collection- you won’t be disappointed at all.

5. L’Oreal Pure Red- Freida’s Pure Rouge:


If you are looking for a comfortable matte finish, creamy texture, bright red lipstick, then the L’Oreal pure red- Freida’s pure rouge is the best pick. It is infused with ultra gliding oils, jojoba oils that would hydrate your lips for 4 hours and it doesn’t feather or transfer. It can be a pricey affair, but the gorgeous shade would make you she’ll few bucks. This lipstick is perfect for the festive season as it flatters every skin tone, gives a smooth look and wouldn’t make you look too bold or bright for the day.
