Holy Grail Red Lip Products + Swatches!

Here are 5 of my favorite products to achieve that effortless and classic red lip! They will be in order of pigmentation from sheer to opaque. Enjoy!

Maybelline Baby Lips in Cherry Me

If you love the look of red lips but are too afraid to wear a full lipstick, then this balm is perfect for you! The sheer wash of red is gorgeous and the cherry smell and taste is lovely! I bought this from Target for $5.00. 

Revlon Lip Butter in Wild Watermelon

One of my newest favorites, this lip butter is from Revlon’s Spring collection. It is limited edition so I recommend that you buy at least 5 of these because they run out very quickly! I love this lip butter because it’s incredibly moisturizing with a creamy finish. It smells great and it’s an overall great product from Revlon! $7.99 is a bargain for this great middleground between a balm and a lipstick!

Clinique Chubby Stick Intense in Mightiest Maraschino

I’ve raved and ranted about this gorgeous lip stain and it’s still one of my favorites! I bought this Chubby Stick at Sephora for $16 which is still an amazing price! The red is bold and the pink undertone is really popular for Spring!

Yves Saint Laurent Glossy Stain in Rouge #9

I bought this YSL Stain from Sephora on my trip to Washington DC and I am still in love with it! The formulation is different from anything I’ve ever used. I love how it goes on incredibly watery and stains my lips to last all day! The finish is glossy, which is incredibly considering its 16 hour staying power! I bought this little gem at Nordstrom for $38.00. It is quite expensive for a lip stain, but I love it so much!

MAC Satin Lipstick in MAC Red 

Nearly as iconic as MAC’s Russian Red, this lipstick is the boldest of all. I love MAC’s lipsticks, especially the ones with a Satin finish, which is the most flattering. It dries nearly matte, but it’s not drying on my lips. I love how it’s a blue toned red, which doesn’t emphasize any redness on my cheeks and also makes my teeth look whiter! This gorgeous lipstick is one of MAC’s permanent lipsticks, so don’t fret because you can get your hands on it right now for $35.00!
