Hello Beauties! I'm here with another post to share my favorite red lipsticks (with one lip stain and one gloss lol). It's no secret I LOVE RED LIPSTICK!! Especially matte red lipstick as most of the lipsticks in this post have a matte, semi-matte, or satin finish. It is my favorite shade of lipstick and I wear it every chance I get. Pink lipstick comes in a close second so be on the lookout for that post. On to the lovely red lipsticks, enjoy!

The Lipsticks

From left to right: 
*Sephora Cream Lip Stain - Always Red
This is found under the lipgloss category on Sephora but to me it's more like a lipstick than a lip gloss. This is my ultimate favorite of the bunch. It dries completely matte, once it sets it DOES NOT budge and the color stays vibrant for a really long time. I take this off with my makeup remover and it does not stain my lips. I also really love the smell (it reminds me of cherry coke).

*MAC Pro Longwear Lipglass - Driven By Love
This is the one lip gloss of the bunch, I have a few other red lip glosses but this one by far is my favorite. It is really opaque. It can be wore alone or on top of a red lipstick. I typically wear this paired with a red lip pencil. 

*MAC Lipstick - Ruby Woo
This lipstick is a gorgeous blue based red with a retrograde matte finish. This is a really popular shade so as you may already know it is a pain to work with and it is very drying on the lips. Despite that it is a gorgeous color and if you aren't afraid of a challenge you will love it. 

*MAC Lipstick - Russian Red
Now this is my favorite red lipstick. I like this one way more than I do Ruby Woo. It is more yellow based than blue based and it's way easier to work with. 

*MAC Mattene Lipstick - Eden Rouge
This is one of my newer shades. I went back and forth with this lipstick because I feel like it's really similar to shades I already own. Be that as it may I really like this lipstick since it's semi-matte it is not as drying.

*Wet-N-Wild Mega Last Lip Color - 911D Spotlight Red
This $2.99 lipstick is just as fabulous as the other lipsticks featured. It is just as vibrant as the others and I love it just the same.

*Revlon Super Lustrous Matte Lipstick - Fabulous Fig
I would call this the odd ball of the group. It is the only wine color of the bunch. I purchased this at the beginning of the fall season and I instantly fell in love. I wear this when I want a bit of color but not a loud vivid amount color.
