5 Must Have Red Lipsticks For A Girl On Budget
” Life’s too short , so make everyday a red lipstick day “
You can never go wrong with a red lipstick. Every women has atleast that one kick ass red lipstick which is her any and every time best friend. There are so many wonderful red lippies in the market but not everyone can afford a Ruby Woo, so I decided to come up with a list (a short one :P) of must have red lipsticks for a girl on budget.
Maybelline Bold Matte – Mat 4
This is a beautiful coral red which instantly brightens your face. The formula is great and even though the finish is matte, it does not dry your lips atall, infact Maybelline bold matte is quite moisturizing. The pigmentation is good and stays a put for 4-5 hours (without meals) leaving behind a soft stain.
Price – Rs.425
Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick – Certainly Red
If you are looking for a pure red lipstick this is it. It has no pink or coral undertones to it. This is from Revlon’s vintage collection (1951) but still works very well. The texture is quite smooth, pigmentation is great and it stays on for a good 4 hours.
Price – Rs. 550
Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick – Hot Hot Hot & All Fired Up
I have a soft corner for the Colorbar Velvet Matte range. I love these lipsticks, they are long staying and quite hydrating to the lips. Hot Hot Hot is a bright red shade which is highly pigmented. Like most of matte lipsticks, this one too leaves a stain behind. The other must try red shade from this range is All fired up. All fired up is a beautiful dark red with blue undertones, which has a slight resemblance to MAC Ruby Woo.
Price – Rs.299
L’oreal Paris Color Riche Pure Reds – Pure Scarleto
Well this exactly is not a budget lipstick but somewhere in the between the expensive MAC’s or Bobby Brown and the budget friendly Colorbar or Revlon. This is definitely one of my favorite red lipstick of current times. Pure Scarleto is warm cherry red shade with semi-matte finish. The texture of this lipstick is velvety smooth and the pigmentation is amazing, It stays on for good 5 -6 hours (without meals) after which it leaves a stain.
Price – Rs.995
Lakme Absolute Gloss Addict – Red Delight
Lovely glossy formula, decent pigmentation and a great moisturizing power are the highlights of this red lipstick. Red Delight is a beautiful cool red shade. On the downside these lipsticks don’t stay long, 2 -3 hours at the maximum but still its a beautiful red lipstick if you are looking for a light glossy red lippie.
Price – Rs. 800
