The Perfect Red Lipstick

The Perfect Red Lipstick


The holidays are the perfect time to rock a bright red lip, but sometimes it can be hard finding the best red for your skin tone. So when I came across this one whilst shopping in Ulta I knew I had to get it!

It’s the Clinique Long Last Soft Matte lipstick in the shade Crimson and it is by far my new favorite matte red. The color goes on silky smooth and it has staying power unlike any other lipstick I own. After a full day of eating, drinking, the color is still going strong at the end of the day. Plus unlike most matte lipsticks I’ve tried, this one doesn’t dry out my lips which is an amazing added bonus. Not to mention it comes in a very sleek silver package that showcases the bold red quite nicely.

If you are still searching for a red lipstick that will look best on you, I would recommend giving this one a shot. My mom and I have virtually opposite skin tones and both of us found that this color was highly complementary. I honestly think it would be a great color for anyone who tried it! Not just for the holidays, but for any day when you’re looking to add a pop of red to your makeup routine.

What is your go-to red lipstick?
