Choosing the Best Red Lipstick

Red Lipstick

Not all red lipsticks are the same. What may appear to be the same shade of red from MAC Cosmetics - Ruby Woo, may not look the same as NARS - Jungle Red.

Lipsticks are created with different undertones, which may not coincide with the undertones in your skin. An undertone is defined as a subdued or muted tone of sound or color. So the red lipstick could have a blue based/underlying color or perhaps an orange based/underlying color.

Additionally, you may have those same or opposite undertones in your skin…which could be the reason why Ruby Woo or Jungle Red doesn’t look good on your lips.

Here’s a video which may help you find your undertone…

After determining your undertone, whether cool or warm, choosing the best red lipstick should be easier.

Almost the last step in choosing the best red lipstick is to find the lipstick type (matte, cream, shimmer, gloss) which is most fitting and gives you the best look.

Matte - Can be drying/crack/crusty

Cream - Could be underimpressive and kind of, meh

Shimmer - Could look cheap

Gloss - Could be too bold

Of course the few cons listed could be the exact opposite, which is why I suggest taking the time to sample and see which fits your budget and satisfies the sexy or bold red lip you’re looking to achieve.

Finally, to line or not to line? That is the question…. Personal preference, so do what looks best. Just don’t “over line” to create something that doesn’t exist.
