5 Hot Red Lipsticks to try this Summer!


Hey everyone!

I’ve been loving bright lipsticks especially Hot Reds lately and I thought of doing a little compilation of hot, bright reds to those of you looking for the perfect red lipstick for summer!


5 Hot Red Lipsticks to try this Summer!

5 Hot Red Lipsticks to try this Summer!




1. Revlon Matte Lipstick : Really Red (Rs 500)


Revlon Really Red is one of my favorite reds and tops this list! Its a true tomato red that is neither too cool toned nor too warm but pops beautifully on almost every skin tone! The formula is rich, creamy and fairly comfortable for a matte lipstick. I’m not sure if this is still available on counters (I heard it got discontinued) but if it is, I’d highly recommend it!

2. L’Oreal Paris Moist Matte Lipstick : Flaming Kiss (Rs 899)


This warm orange-y red is the latest addition to my red lipstick collection and I’m absolutely blown away by how beautiful this is! The packaging is luxurious as is the texture. It feels silky soft and delivers rich color in a single swipe. The color hugs the lips and stays on for a long time as well. This is part of the Cannes Collection for 2014.

3. Milani Lip Intense Liquid Color :Red Extreme ($6.49)


Another eye-popping bold red is Red Extreme by Milani which is a hydrating liquid lipstick. While I love the creamy formula and the intense color, this one is a little high maintenance but gorgeous nonetheless! Reviewed HERE.

4. Estee Lauder Pure Color Lipstick : Red Tango (Rs 1750)


The most luxurious pick in this compilation is this gorgeous hot red from Estee Lauder. The formula is every bit as rich as the packaging and it is a delight to wear. The texture is super smooth and creamy, the pigmentation is amazing and it is very comfortable on the lips. Reviewed HERE.

5. Lakme Absolute Creme Lipstick : Runway Red (Rs 600)


This is the most subtle red in this compilation with its underlying brick tones. But it still brightens up the face and the formula is creamy, rich and comfortable. I love this one as a stain – makes a great day time red when sheered down! For the ladies who are shy of wearing reds, this is a good one to start with! Reviewed HERE.

    • May 6, 2014 / 10:16 am

      Since FOTDs are only neck up, they add a little something to the look!

      I thought it wouldn't suit me but I was surprised!

  20. May 3, 2014 / 2:01 am

    All of them look so fabulous! May favourite would be the Revlon and the Loreal one.. They make me want to wear reds, even though I am not much comfortable with red on me 🙂

    • May 6, 2014 / 10:18 am

      You should definitely try reds! Try wearing it as a stain first by blotting the excess color off on a tissue after application.
