Best Red Lipsticks for Valentine 2018

5 Best Red Lipsticks for Valentine 2018.

Looking for that perfect shade of red lipstick that will impress your partner this Valentine’s? Well here’s the scoop on some of my favorite red lipsticks that you can try. They range from different price points so there’s something for everyone.

Red lipstick is no doubt a fashion statement all in itself and it might be a little intimidating at first but it is the one shade that can instantly elevate your sexy factor with little to no effort.

Whether you’re planning a romantic getaway with your beau or a fancy dinner date night, you better not be caught without some sexy red lips. It is an essential part of a perfect Valentine.

Besides, there is no celebrating Valentine without some red lips.

Without further ado, let’s get to it shall we?

Revlon Rich Girl Red

This lipstick was so moisturizing it felt almost like a balm to me. It has a very radiant finish as well which is an added bonus. This will easily create that glamorous look you are going for. This can be found at your local drugstore.

Milani Matte Kiss

This is a darker red and like the name, has a matte finish.  It does has a very smooth finish and I would say it’s more of a semi matte finish as it felt like it had a little bit of moisture as I glided it on. The wear time on this was 5 hours for me. Find it at your local drugstore.

NYX BLS15

Another drugstore brand, this lipstick is creamy with an easy application. Very pigmented and also feels very light on the lips. One application would be enough as it has a very high impact color.

Ruby Woo by MAC

Of course I couldn’t leave this one off the list. Even though I wish it was more moisturizing on the lips, it’s my all time favorite and that’s never gonna change anytime soon.

LipSense Flygirl

If you’re  thinking that your man is gonna wine and dine you this Valentine and don’t want to be bothered with your lipstick transferring or don’t want to be reapplying your lipstick every so often then this is definitely the lipstick for you. The only thing you would have to reapply is the lip gloss to keep that shine throughout the day. You can never go wrong with this as this is like the Ferrari of lipsticks when it comes to wear time.

With all these options make sure to dress to impress this Valentine’s.

Happy Kissing!
