I do not care who you are or what color you are; if you are a woman then red lipstick can be your best friend. The only thing that varies with red color is finding the right type of red that is right for your skin tone and the right type of red that is right for your budget.  Therefore, here are some of my suggestions for the best red lip color no matter what your budget is.  Unless your budget is free, I do not have picks for the free budget sorry.


The Affordable Budget.

This lip colors are $10 and below. Plus they are still reputable brands so that you know you are getting quality products.

Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick – Mini

For $10 we have this mini lip color. This lip color is a highly pigmented matte lip color that delivers 14 hours of continuous wear without flaking or dryness. Which is important, because for some matte lip colors, your lips can start to look a little dry after about an hour or two.


Maybelline Color Sensational Vivid Matte Liquid Lip Color Rebel Red

Maybelline is an affordable brand and this lip color cost $6.99. It is a vibrant color and to me matte is really in, which is why I love this lip color.


Rimmel London Lasting Finish Lipstick by Kate Moss

I love this shade of red. If you have a darker skin tone then this red is probably a better option for you.


The still affordable but cost a little bit more Budget.

In case you want to splurge a little here are some lip colors around the $20 price range. Sometimes spending a little more on lip color can make all the difference in the pigmentation of the lip color and how long the lip color last.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick

Another matte lipstick, did I mention that I love matte. This lip color is $20 and delivers a rich and longwearing matte look to lips.


Smashbox Be Legendary Matte Lipstick – Bing Matte

The cost for this lip color is $21. And yes, another matte.


Jouer Long Wear Lip Creme Liquid Lipstick in the color Brique

This cream lip color retails at $18. The lip color boast that it gives full coverage and last all day.


High End Lip Color

Do you have a little bit more that you want to spend? And by a little bit more I mean between $30 and $40 bucks for lip color.  If you do, I have some good ones listed below.

Yves Saint Laurent ‘Rouge Pur Couture Vernis A Levres’ Glossy Stain

So let us stray away from the matte for a second and move to this glossy stain. Yves Saint Laurent Glossy Stain gives you a gloss, stain, and lipstick delivering an intense glossy color and a long-lasting shine. It retails for $36


Armani Women’s Lip Magnet

Can some body say Armani? Right! Enough said. Its Armani so you know it has to be good.  It retails for $38.


Givenchy Limited Edition Rouge Marbled Lipstick in Red

This is a limited edition lip color by Givenchy and it looks so awesome, so how can you resist. It all swirly and what not. It retails at $34.


Insanely Expensive

If you want to go for the gold and just buy a $100 dollar lipstick or really a $90 lipstick, then here you go. This is a lipstick and it had a cool container. Look at this lipstick, it looks fancy, it looks like it cost $90 and did I mention that it was Louboutin.
