  • TIPS ON HOW TO WEAR RED LIPSTICK

    Try a classic satin finish: Mattes and glosses might be alluring, but nothing beats a creamy, satin-looking red lip. It's a low-maintenance texture to wear, as it will both cling to lips and moisturize them throughout the day. Try Color Sensational Made for All Lipstick.


    Going to a party? Opt for long wear lipstick. Superstay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick inks your lips with up to 16 hours of rich, saturated color—no touch ups required—and comes in a ton of red shades.


    Don't forget lip liner: Lip liner is the key to crisp, clean lips and extra-long staying power. Plus, it keeps color from bleeding.
