Best Red Lipsticks for Valentine's Day and Beyond

Valentine's Day is just around the corner — and if you are one of those girls who are looking for an easy way to impress your partner or make this special day extra exciting I suggest that you wear a red lipstick. Why? because nothing can beat the power of a red lip. If you are in the hunt for the perfect shade of red lipstick — well today is your lucky day because in this post I am sharing eight of the best red lipsticks that are available in the market today.

Dolce & Gabbana Monica Voluptuous Lipstick in Attractive Monica ($34.00) - This opaque formula creates the appearance of voluptuous-looking lips.Thanks to an intense skin-conditioning formula, this lipstick leaves lips looking plump, feeling soft, and appearing voluptuous. The colors are rich and luminous, with a smooth and creamy texture that glides easily on the lips for buildable coverage. Inspired by Monica Bellucci, Dolce & Gabbana’s main muse, the Monica Lipstick embodies the sensuality of the Italian woman.

Marc Jacobs Beauty Kiss Pop Lip Color Stick in Pop Rock ($28.00) - Let your lips pop when you swipe on this bold, honey-infused lip color from Marc Jacobs. From soft pinks to bold brights, Kiss Pop offers the perfect shades that lasts for hours. Honey, a natural humectant, delivers comfortable color, while the nutrient-rich leaves of the Candelilla plant are combined with Silica to lock-in bold color, leaving a smooth, transfer-resistant lip shade.This high-performance lip color features an oversized design, and it’s travel-friendly for convenient application.

Bobbi Brown Creamy Matte Lip Color in Red Carpet ($26.00) - A revolutionary lipstick that combines the long-lasting look of a classic, matte lip with incredible wearability. Unlike most matte stains, Bobbi’s formula utilizes a unique combination of emollients to condition lips and lock in moisture. Highly pigmented, you’ll get true, crisp color that won’t fade or feather for up to eight hours. Inspired by the looks she was creating for Fashion Week, Bobbi created the perfect color range with everything from nudes and brights to bolds.

Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick in Raven ($28.00) - A richly pigmented, silky-smooth, matte lip color that delivers 14 hours of continuous wear without smudging or dryness. Get a bold red lip with this lasting, vivid shade from Hourglass. The proprietary blend of advanced polymers in this liquid lipstick delivers intense, vibrant color with exceptional longevity. Skin-conditioning emollients, antioxidant fruit extracts, cili fruit, goji berry, and vitamins A, C, and E help to protect the lips throughout the day.

Laura Mercier Rouge Nouveau Weightless Lip Colour in Mod ($25.00) - This light-as-air formula feels completely weightless on lips. The secret is a unique wax-free base that allows pigments to deliver true custom color impact. A smooth texture applies evenly and provides an easy lay down of color in one swipe. Available in sheer, matte, and cream finishes, this formula feels comfortable and sooths lips throughout the day.

Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick in Underage Red ($21.00) - Drench your lips with bold color and unstoppable femininity. Designed to look as rock ‘n roll as its wearer, this revolutionary, hybrid lipstick is formulated with Color Cushion Technology that combines 10-hour wear, one-swipe payoff, and velvet touch comfort. This color-true lipstick leaves lips supple, and its wide color spectrum offers stunning shades, including red for every skintone, statement-making colors, and classic, everyday neutrals.

Sephora Collection Color Lip Last in Wanted Red ($13.00) - This exclusive, multitasking formula locks in color and provides comfortable wear for a beautiful pout that lasts. The high-coverage pigments distribute intense color and are mixed with a setting agent that acts as a base for the lips. The ultra-thin texture feels light and the waterproof formula makes it refreshingly smudge-proof.

Shiseido Lacquer Rouge in Sanguine ($25.00) - Inspired by Japanese lacquerware, one coat of this luxurious formula provides intense color and deep luster. The applicator fits closely against the lips for a comfortable and even application that does not bleed.
