Insider's Picks: These Are The Best Red Lipsticks You Need To Own This Season


A red lip is a timeless statement, be it a bright and vivacious fire engine red or a darker, sultry vampy hue. It can be bold, but it won’t be outrageously loud and mildly controversial like an electric blue lipstick. It can be subtle, but its subtlety is unlike the kind of boring, underwhelming shade with a name like “Modest”. For this season’s best shades of red, look no further.



Vibrant and luminous, Chanel’s Rouge Allure is one of melt-away, ultra-fine texture that feels uncanny like a second skin. Across its palette of intense shades, the Enigmatique (135) Rouge Allure Lip Color offers a warmer tone of red in a soft and frosty finish. Like its moniker suggests, it’s a shade for a woman of mystery.

Seductive, long-lasting and intense, Dolce&Gabbana’s Classic Cream Lipstick tempts with a lovely rose fragrance – the fashion house’s signature scent – and is supposed to be richly-pigmented, hydrating and long-wearing. Despite its classic scent, the lipstick does not have a discernible taste. For this season, go for the medium-dark Scarlett (625), which sizzles and also cools with a satin finish.
