There’s nothing more sensual than a sexy lipstick. And both women and men know that. It doesn’t really matter what other make-up products you lack, with the right lipstick you can get the true, magical effect. It’s the final touch every woman just needs to own. So here are the top 10 best lipstick shades that we can’t forget, even if they’re slightly old.
1. Tom Ford Beauty Lip Color in Nude Vanille
If you don’t like a strong lip color, Nude Vanille by Tom Ford is the perfect creamy pale lipstick for both brunettes and blondes. It’s so natural and delicate, you’ll just want to use it every day to underline your casual outfits. It’s sheer magic!
2. Mac Lipstick in Mac Red
Mac Red matches anything from a fancy dress to your favorite jeans. It’s the color that’s most similar to Brian Wolk and Claude Morais’s MAC Ruffian Red, a longtime favorite from the company that was sadly discontinued. This is among the best drugstore lipstick one can find.
3. Cool Red from Maybelline
Cool reds look incredible on fair skin, and this shade from Maybelline is a wonderful option for a cool, blue-red. Some say that’s the best red lipstick for fair skin. But opinions are subjective, aren’t they? But it’s worth giving this one a try, as it is rather cheap and it’s got a fine classic touch.
4. True Red from Sephora
A true red looks wonderful on everyone, but especially on medium skin tones. And this matte tone from Sephora is simply incredible. It’s probably the best drugstore red lipstick you can find.
For girls with medium skin tones, (like beige, olive, and bronze), congratulations, as basically every shade of red works for you. Not to mention Asian women, Indian women included! My mother has medium olive skin and her go-to shade is an orange-red or a blood red.
5. Christian Dior Rouge Dior Voluptuous Care Lipcolor, No. 757
This one is ideal for beige skin. This skin color is characterized by yellow undertones and looks best with a warm red, but can also get away with a cool red too. Celebs like Charlize Theron, Kim Kardashian and Jennifer Lopez sport a beige skin tone.
Super nourishing and long-wearing lipstick, it wraps lips in voluptuous, haute couture color and imparts radiant shine and luster for lips It also provides definition and moisture to keep lips hydrated. Moreover, it guarantees to make your lips look chic and feels comfortable.
6. Clinique High Impact Lip Colour SPF 15 – No. 12 Red-y To Wear Makeup
This one here provides intense and lasting color that stays on for 8 hours. It’s moisturizing and comfortable to wear. Broadly screens away damaging UV rays and offers moderate to full coverage. It makes your lips smooth, soft and beautiful. To me, it’s the best red lipstick for olive skin this fall.
Tip: If you have an olive skin tone like Sienna Miller, Eva Mendes and Jennifer Aniston, then your undertones appear greener. Orange-based or brick shades look great in this case and using a blue-based product also provides a beautiful contrast to bronzed skin, also making your teeth look extra white.
7. Urban Decay Pulp Fiction Revolutionary Lipstick
Remember the amazing Mrs. Mia Wallace from “Pulp Fiction,” played by Uma Thurman (in a black wig and look-at-me red lips)? Well, Urban Decay recreated her exact red lip color for the movie’s 20th anniversary. So you should definitely try this one out.
8. Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick – Spicy Cinamon
Get some inspiration from Lorde and go super dark. Trust me, you’ll look amazing! This is a jackpot for redheads.
9. Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Esprit
What else needs to be said about this product other than the fact that it’s Chanel? You can’t go wrong with them because they’re always on trend and this amazing wine lipstick is no different. Not only is it a great color, it’s hydrating so you don’t have to worry about your lips going dry! It’s the best red lipstick for fair skin I’ve tried in a while.
Make sure to snatch yours up because the color is limited edition.
10. Ilia Femme Fatale
Who doesn’t love a product that’s made with natural ingredients? This beautiful deep red lipstick is made with ingredients such as beeswax and organic oils. It made quite a fuss back in 2013, too. But deep reds are definitely going to be the color this fall as well, so why not add this to your collection?
