Matte red lipstick is quite possibly the greatest thing to ever happen to makeup. Alright, I may be a little biased since I wear it almost everyday. But still, matte red lips are pretty amazing. Check out this list of the 4 best matte red lipsticks:
My personal favorite is MAC’s Riri Woo. It’s the perfect shade cool-toned shade of red. Although it’s a limited edition shade, you can still find people selling their unopened lipsticks on eBay, Poshmark and other resale sites.
Kat Von D Everlasting Love Liquid Lipstick in “Underage Red”
Underage Red is a pretty unique shade of red. It has an orange iridescence to it. The liquid lipsticks also dry extremely matte, which looks amazing. Just be sure to exfoliate and moisturize your lips before application.
Rimmel Lasting Finish Matte by Kate Moss lipstick in “111 Kiss of Life”
The Kate Moss Rimmel matte collection lipsticks are a little less intimidating than other matte collections. They’re more of a semi-matte and are available in most drugstores. Kiss of Life is a true red that can be suitable for all skin tones and lightened or darkened with a lip pencil underneath.
This e.l.f. lipstick comes a in pencil-like form and is more buildable than the others. It’s another cool tone red lipstick. For just a couple of bucks, if you’re new to lipstick or just want to try out a matte red lipstick, this would be perfect for you.
