10 Of The Best Red Lipsticks

A red lipstick is one of those things everyone needs in their make-up kit. "There is no more dramatic accessory than a perfect lip," says designer Tom Ford: it can boost your mood, transform your face and complete an outfit. A classic red comes in many guises, and the finish – whether that’s matte, satin, velvet, creamy or glossy –is all down to preference. But there are no rules to say you need just one…

Matte & Mighty

Charlotte Tilbury’s Walk of Shame may be matte, but it contains light-diffusing pigments to add a little something extra. A stand-out star.

Buildable Brilliance

Buildable coverage with a pretty sheen makes YSL’s hero lipstick an easy grab-and-go, and perfect for those who aren’t keen on lip liner.

The Liquid Matte

Highly pigmented, long-wearing lipstick doesn’t just come in a bullet. Giorgio Armani Lip Maestro has a genius hydrating gel formula to give a velvety, matte finish – no risk of sticky flyaways.

The Liquid Shine

By Terry’s founder Terry de Gunzburg, who is never seen without a red lip, specially formulated My Red to work on all skin tones. This gives gloss-like shine without the sticky residue.

All In A Scent

There’s one stand-out element of the new Kilian lipsticks: they’re scented. A fragrance first from the renowned French perfumer, his new scent, Le Rouge Parfum, is infused into every bullet. Prohibited, a classic scarlet, has particularly good colour pay-off.

The Cream Choice

TOM FORD’s lipstick is formulated with soybean extract, Brazilian murumuru butter from the Amazon rainforest and chamomilla flower to deliver not just a pretty colour, but one that’s kind to lips, too.

A Super Satin

A little power player, Rouge Dior is one icon you’ll find in many a make-up artist’s kit for its satin sheen and punchy pigment.


Huda’s demi-matte formula is a brilliant balance between matte and gloss – ideal for every day.

The Smooth Icon

A rite-of-passage lipstick, whether you’re into Ruby Woo, Lady Danger or our choice, Chili, MAC's smooth finish that’s part-matte, part-satin is hard to beat.

The All-Rounder

Easy-to-apply? Tick. Non-drying velvet formula? Yes. Pretty packaging? Check! What’s not to love about Dolce & Gabbana Beauty’s red lip? Also, that packaging….
