The Perfect Red Lip

A red lip is both beautiful and classic but many women forgo the shade altogether and opt for more muted or nude colors instead.  To be honest, I've never been drawn to the lip color choice myself until this past year which is saying a lot since I've been wearing makeup regularly for more than a decade.  Anyhow, below I have four red lip color choices that I feel will flatter basically any skin tone.  I think the shades are quite neutral so your skin tone being cool or warm makes little difference.

Mirenesse Lip Bomb in 2:  A medium toned, neutral red liquid lipstick with a glossy, opaque finish.  The texture of the lipstick is smooth and not sticky.

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Amsterdam:  A medium toned, pinkish red with a matte finish that doesn't feel overly drying on the lips.

Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in Red Velvet:  A sheer but buildable, slightly brownish red shade with a glossy finish. This is a safe bet color for those that may be a bit hesitant to give a red lip a try because of the sheerer quality of the formula.

Rimmel Lasting Finish By Kate in 01:  A midtoned, neutral red with a soft satin finish.  This particular color and formula catapulted my love for a classy red lip!
