Top 10 Red Lipsticks in the Game #Lipstick


What do Marilyn Monroe, Dita Von Teese, Gwen Stefani, Adele, and Taylor Swift have in common? Their signature red lip. Looking for a crimson color to swipe over your pout? Here are 10 of the latest and greatest red lipsticks.


If you aren't ready for a full-on, opaque red lip, try a stain like this one. It still gives you a pretty pigmented finish, but it's not as saturated as a lipstick. Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Romantic, $7, drugstore.com


This new rich bright red goes on creamy but dries matte, and the best part is that it won't budge for eight hours. Bobbi Brown Creamy Matte Lip Color in Red Carpet, $25.


Want a serious shot of color on your lips? This orange-y red, moisturizing lip color is ultra bright and is the perfect transition shade from summer to fall. Dolce & Gabbana The Lipstick Classic Cream Lipstick in Devil, $32.


Thanks to its tiny flecks of mica, this red shade shines bright like a diamond on your lips. ELF Cosmetics Essential Lipstick in Fearless, $4.20.


This newcomer doesn't come in bullet form, however it's stick-like stature houses an opaque stain that dries into a velvety lipstick-like finish. In our opinion, it's kind of amazing. Giorgio Armani Lip Maestro in The Red, $32.


One of the greats, this oldie-but-goodie lip color has had a cult following ever since it launched in the 80s. Mac Cosmetics Lipstick in Russian Red, $15.


This lipstick leaves behind a finish that's as shiny as red-hot patent leather pumps. Maybelline ColorSensational Lip Color in Red Revival, $7.


Who wouldn't want to color their lips with this vibrant red crayon-like lip pencil? This tried and true stick has earned street cred over the years because it goes on creamy but dries matte (so it won't bleed into your lip lines), it's highly pigmented, and it hydrates your mouth with vitamin E. Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil, $25.


Okay, how versatile is this bullet?! One side is a deep red, but when you want to switch it up for a lighter look, just flip it around and swipe the lighter pink side over your pout. NYC City Duet 2-in-1 Lipcolor in The Red Hots, $3.


If you aren't ready for a full-on, opaque red lip, try a stain like this one. It still gives you a pretty pigmented finish, but it's not as saturated as a lipstick. Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Romantic, $7
