I can’t be the only one who pulls out red lipstick when Valentine’s Day comes around. There’s something so sultry and romantic about a bold, red lip. I’m a girl who doesn’t look good in red, pink, or white. I have too much red in my skin tone so I have to be careful with what red lipsticks I try. Too orange and I look like a clown and too red and it clashes with my skin tone!
After a few years of trial and error, I’ve found 5 of the best red lipsticks that look good on me and are good brands. These lipsticks pass the test of looking smooth, staying on for a few hours, and being a good makeup investment. Check out my favorites below!

My love affair with Charlotte Tilbury started with this red lipstick. It’s my go-to when I’m feeling glamorous and want a dramatic red lip. $34
I’m new to Laura Mercier, but so far I’m loving the brand! This is a fab color, it’s what I’m wearing in the photos today. I pair it with matching eyeliner for a flawless finish.
If you like your lipstick being more like a gloss, YSL is a great option. It comes with a wand and looks nice and shiny.
While this lipstick is a little on the expensive side, it’s the creamiest lipstick and goes on so smoothly. I put this lipstick on if I’m going for a demure, lady-like vibe. The essence of CoCo Chanel herself!
Feeling sassy and fierce? Add some Ruby Woo to your leather jacket and moto boots! This MAC shade is famous for being the perfect shade of red. I’ve had this color for years and it never goes out of style.
