Bold, sexy and iconic, red lipstick is the original lipstick shade. Literally. And you can twist it in so many ways. Clean and matte, high-shine glam. Fiery orange-red, classic blue-red. Ever-so-slightly-pink red. Each subtle shade variation and finish brings a whole different personality to the look. Here are our best red lipstick shades of 2021.
Dubbed Best Classic Red Lipstick Shade of 2021 in the Allure Best of Beauty Awards. This shade features specially selected and obsessively tested pigments that make this universal lipstick shade look sensational on all complexions.
Individualist is the party-ready lipstick shade of your dreams: a pure, clarion-red shade.
Shot Caller is a fresh, cool pinky-blue-raspberry hue that's fun and modern.
Hustler is equal parts brown and red, and is an excellent daytime twist on red.
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.
