Red lipstick is magic. All the girls give a universal nod of agreement on that. Even in your bad hair, bad skin and even bad face days, red lipstick will come to your rescue, adding some instant glamour to your persona. So if you are one of those women who loves red lipstick, know that you aren’t alone and for all the red lipstick lovers, here is your much needed guide of the 5 red lipsticks available in India.
1. Revlon Super lustrous Fire and Ice
Revlon is the Magna mater in the world of cosmetics. And how on earth is it possible for the brand to not have a feisty red shade? Fire and Ice is simply one of a kind. The lipstick is creamy and it glides on the skin like a dream. Just one stroke is enough to give that perfect finish and it stays for over 4 hours leaving a pretty red stain behind. It is perfect for night time but the only drawback is that it transfers a lot. Buy it here!
2. Maybelline Superstay 14 hr Lipstick Non stop Red
Maybelline is not only good with eye makeup, it rocks the lip range too. Here we have the non stop red from the superstay 14 hr lipstick range, which is this gorgeous red shade in semi matte. The pigment is extremely intense and a single swipe is enough! Stays for a decent amount of time. It is semi matte, and has this pretty creamy texture. The drawback is that, if you have chapped lips or dry lips, lipstick may form lines and may be flaky. Buy it here!
3. Loreal Paris Color Riche Pure Reds Star Collection Pure Rouge
Ah, this one is for all the rouge hearts. I can’t tell enough about this lipstick. This is my personal favorite and it suits indian skins in the most perfect way. It is this neutral red color, a bit with blue undertones. Pure Rogue has creamy texture but it gives a perfect matte finish. It survives full meals too and it doesn’t transfer. But again, it may settle into lines if you don’t moisturize or exfoliate well. It is the perfect, perfect shade for anyone with the red obsession. You don’t even need a lot of makeup with it. A stroke of kajal and you’re good to go. Buy it here!
4. MAC Russian Red
MAC Russian Red is the current favorite of all Indian youth. Especially the girls with dusky to medium skin tones. It is deep warm red, with blue undertones. Gives a matte finish and it stays for more than 6 hours. The lipstick is creamy and doesn’t dry out your lips. It doesn’t bleed or transfers. A single swipe is enough for you to turn heads without the help of any other makeup. I’d say absolutely no cons. Buy it here!
5. Lakme 9 to 5 Red coat lipstick
Lakme 9 to 5 Red Coat Lipstick is another affordable products and it is easily available in all drug stores. You can call it a dupe for MAC Ruby Woo, it is an intense true red, with some blue undertones. It might look a little orangey depending upon the tone of the person. The texture is creamy and gives a matte finish. It is easy for touch-ups and it is worth re-purchasing! Buy it here!
