THE BEST, CHEAP RED LIPSTICKS
If there is one thing that has remained the same in my life over the course of almost two decades, it’s my affinity for red lipstick. There is something about a quick coat of brilliant red lacquer that can transform an entire look and attitude. Above all, red lipstick makes me feel daring and confident, and that is priceless. You know what’s even better? Finding a cheap red lipstick that you love.
Over the years, I have had reds in and out of my life. Some were just quick fixes, others stayed past their welcome (this one red matte lip I used to use I guess wore off really easily and left a red lip liner ring around my mouth, which no one bothered to tell me until I was at the post office one day…) and others have withstood the test of time.
Finding a red that flatters your skin tone, is easy to apply, and doesn’t get discontinued can be a challenge. So below, I’ve rounded up my ultimate list of the best cheap red lipsticks that you can buy. I recently discovered Palladio velvety matte in Red Carpet and it has been my No.1 go-to lately. Some other timeless faves include Maybelline and Lancome all which I’ve curated for you below. Enjoy!
