A red lip is not just for Valentines. Though we do tend to see a lot more red lip moments circling around during the month of February! With so many available on the market, if you too are on the hunt for a red lip that wont budge through your valentines plans (though don’t go too crazy!) I’ve done the work for you…here are my 5 top picks below!

DOLCE & GABBANA | Lip Lac Devotion (405 devozione)

This liquid lipstick by Dolce&Gabbana is highly pigmented with an almost mousse like texture that tried down to a silky-soft matte, no transfer finish.

I love how lightweight and comfortable this formula feels on the lips as well as how easy the small applicator is to apply. Plus look at how luxurious the packaging is!

DIOR | Rouge Dior Forever Lacquer Lipstick (999)

Glossy red lipstick that doesn’t transfer? Unheard of! You may have seen this one go viral a while back for providing exactly that. This liquid lipstick in the iconic 999 red shade dries down to a glossy, lacquered finish that feels completely dry to touch. So if you prefer a glossy look but don’t want to deal with the mess, you might like this!

I’d recommend applying in sections and light layers to achieve the most even result, then allowing it to dry completely before pressing lips together to avoid any lifting.

L’OREAL | Infallible Matte Resistance Lipstick (420)

This liquid matte lipstick by L’Oreal has intense colour pay off in just one swipe. The ultra-lightweight, creamy formula provides a powdery matte finish that is comfortable all day long and is easy to apply with its super precise applicator.

I love how many shades this comes in, so you will be sure to find the perfect red for you.

For maximum longevity, I like to apply thin layers then allow to dry completely for a transfer resistant finish.

VIOLETTE FR | Petal Bouche Matte (Cerise Désir)

If you read my previous blog post you may be familiar with this but I thought it deserved another mention!

This liquid lipstick gives you rose petal velvet like lips. The rich, velvety formula glides on effortlessly and dries to a super comfortable finish with no transfer.

The shade ‘cerise désir’ is a perfect deep, almost burgundy red that looks effortlessly chic and is flattering on all skintones.

NARS Powermatte Lipstick (Dragon Girl)

If you find liquid lipsticks a little too difficult to work with, this bullet lipstick by NARS may give you a similar result. It is a high intensity, ultra matte finish that offers transfer resistant wear. Available in an array of bold and neutral shades.

I would advise making sure lips are exfoliated prior to wear so there is no skipping of product or clinging to dry areas.
