Going back a few decades a sassy shade of red lips was my go-to fashion statement. Wearing red is big, bold and sultry. It screams here I am. For some reason after my obsession faded away, I swore off the red lip. I thought I was too old to rock it like I used to. Well thank goodness my attitude has changed! This season I’m back to rocking red lipstick every moment I can. I’ve also introduced lots of reds, whites, creams, black, grey and blues into my wardrobe – red lips looks so good with these colors. Red lips look just as great for evening cocktails as they do for aprés ski. Here’s a list of the best of the best red lipsticks, stains & balms. They each have their own charms which are outlined below. When it comes to red, the most important factors are long lasting, smooth application & beautiful colors. Most of these brands have several red shades to choose from, so be sure to peek at all the options.
If you don’t currently wear red lipstick and you want to make the leap I’m going to urge you to just go for it. It’s such an empowering, elegant and strong fashion statement. Don’t forget that lip liner to make sure application is spot on!
