Makeup Wars: Favorite Red Lipstick!


Are you ready for another Makeup War? I know that I am excited to see what the Makeup Wars bloggers pick for this weeks challenge: Favorite Red Lippie!

If you missed our previous Makeup Wars challenges, be sure to check them out here: Battle of the Taupes, The $20.00 Face Challenge, Battle of the Favorite Summer Lippie, the Most Expensive Face Challenge, the Best Brush, and Favorite Fall Polish.

I must admit that I have a love/hate relationship with red lipstick. Nothing beats a fabulous red lippie for instant glamour. However, red lipstick is so bold that it really must be the perfect shade. For me, it is all about the underlying tone of the lipstick. My skintone is neutral-cool. So, I look best in cool-toned reds or blue-based reds. Warm reds really do nothing for me.

Truth be told, red lipstick is not a frequent look for me. I am more of a peachy-pink girl when it comes to my lippies. With that said, I strongly believe that every woman should have a beautiful red lipstick in her makeup collection that makes her feel fabulous every time she wears it!

So, what red lipstick makes me look and feel fabulous? What did the other Makeup Wars bloggers pick? Keep reading to find out!

My favorite red lipstick is...(insert drumroll here)...NYC's (New York Color) #404 Air Kiss!!! Am I a bargain-girl at heart or what? Yes, that is right, my favorate Red Lipstick is available at Target/drugstores for only a few dollars.
It applies a bit sheer and is pretty moisturizing for a lipstick. On my super dark pigmented lips the shade ends up looking like a pinkish-red.  So flattering!!! It is the subtle way to "do red". It is certainly everyday wearable.

I could use that too. I like that pinker red. I'll have to remember it.

Oh, it really does turn pinky red on you. It looks so pretty and def not "in your face"!

That shade looks great on you!

Awesome color! I'll have to keep this in mind for when people tell me they can't wear red. This is a great color on you. BTW you could totally wear a bold red. It would look awesome on you!

It's such a great wearable choice for those that are afraid of a really red lip. Great pick!

Thanks for all your comments ladies! I think the natural pigmentation of my lips makes this color look a bit pinker when applied. It really is super pretty and flattering. I always feel great in this color!

You're right, Pammy, it does look pinkish on you. I thought maybe it was my monitor. I love it, tho.

@nanavakveeta03-Hmmm...maybe I am "cheating" the challenge picking a very pinkish red? lol :) I think that it looks more "red" in person thought. Thanks for reading!
