There are so many lip formulas out in the beauty world now that I thought it might be fun to try something old. Back to basics. A classic red lipstick without the extras! I think a vintage red lip can bring together any outfit & add instant glam to a holiday look- with a smoky eye or a clean look. All the glam with none of the hassle! Keep reading to see 5 of my favorite classic reds!
For this top 5 I went with lipsticks- not lacquers or liquids. I included one balmy shade but it has nice pigmentation-otherwise nothing sheer. Just your classic formulas-each with something a little different which I’ll talk more about below! I’ll be going over each lipstick shade & formula below from left to right!
An affordable lipstick that promises longer wear. While I don’t find it hardcore long-wearing- the color selection is fabulous for the price & often goes on sale!
The formula is fantastic- super comfortable & vivid. This shade in particular doesn’t take much building up & lasts a long time- especially for a red! The demi-matte formula is unique as well because it looks classic without leaning glossy or matte.
This formula is highly pigmented, lightweight, & promises to last up to 6 hours. It has a luxe comfortable feeling & this slightly warm red is pinup-worthy.
A formula that is called a balm- but this shade has some gorgeous pigmentation too! Incredibly smooth, great for winter dryness. & builds upon itself effortlessly for a subtle or rich lip.
This is one of my absolute favorite true reds- & the formula is irresistible. This beauty is packed with a built-in primer & hydrators for a truly comfortable somewhat glossy lipstick. It isn’t just a lipstick but an experience!
