5 iconic red lipsticks everyone should own. Gwyneth Paltrow once said: “Beauty, to me, is about being comfortable in your own skin. That, or a kickass red lipstick.”
And not a truer word has ever been spoken.
Makeup trends come and go but a bold red lip remains timeless. From original screen sirens to today’s leading ladies, a red lip can change your look in an instant. I’ve chosen 5 iconic red lips that I think you beauty lovers out there should try at least once.
Charlotte Tilbury K.I.S.S.I.N.G So Marilyn €32
While Pillow Talk may be the best seller from this CT collection, So Marilyn is a beautiful true red that works well on anyone and is perfect for when you want to make a serious entrance.
NARS Heatwave €27
If you’re looking for a bright and bold red lip, then look no further than NARS Heatwave. It’s orange/red colour will give your skin a pop in winter but will look equally gorgeous with a tan too.
Chanel Rouge Coco Shine Sheer Lipshine in Shipshape €35
For those of you who prefer your red lips on the lighter side, this sheer lipstick is ideal. It gives you a pop of colour without the commitment of a regular lipstick.
Kate Moss x Rimmel €7.49
It’s been part of her signature look for over 25 years, so it’s no wonder that the 1st shade Kate Moss launched with Rimmel was a scarlet red lipstick. Shade 01 looks and feels more expensive than it is and is perfect if you’re looking for a red lipstick on a budget.
MAC Ruby Woo €20
I couldn’t put together a list of red lipsticks and not include Ruby Woo. This cult classic from MAC is as statement red as statement red gets. Wear it with just mascara for a simple daytime look or with lashes and liner for a more retro feel.
