French girls swear by it to go with tousled hair on a casual day and a glam get up for a night in the city. Movie icons have a favourite signature shade of red lipstick.

Having a red lipstick in your makeup arsenal is always a good idea because you never know when you’ll need to glam up in an instant.

Classic Red Lipsticks To Stock Up On

Coveted red lipsticks that have stood the test of time.

Dior Rouge Lipstick 999

Dior’s iconic 999 shade is popular amongst celebs and it is a revamp of the very first red lipstick Christian Dior ever launched. This medium red looks beautiful on every single skin tone as it has a nice balance of cool and warm undertones.

NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil – Dragon Girl

A bright red with cool undertones of pink, this chubby lip pencil is favoured by many celebs and also happens to be Taylor Swift’s signature red lip look. A super smooth, non-drying formula makes this beautiful bright red lipstick even more alluring. The shade falls somewhere between classic red and pink and settles to a soft matte finish.

Who isn’t a fan of this red lipstick? This shade is a favourite amongst so many because it literally gives a ruby red effect when worn on your lips. The lipstick also looks good on every complexion and never fails to impress. Celebs like Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Rihanna are fans of this lipstick.

Shiseido Visionairy Gel Lip Stick – Ginza Red

This is a warm toned red lipstick that feels weightless on the lips. This lipstick complements all skin tones and can be dapped on for a blurry lip effect or swiped on to build in intensity. 

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Fire & Ice

Revlon launched this iconic red lipstick in 1952 and by the summer it was all everyone could talk about as it came with a lipstick and polish duo of the same hue. Fire & Ice is a creamy fiery red lipstick that is glides on your lips and offers gorgeous shine. It stood the test of time because the formula and shade is just that iconic.
