The Best Red Lipsticks For Spring

Friday, May 23, 2014

With the days getting longer and the temperature starting to warm up, it’s only appropriate to start lightening up your beauty routine. It’s time to shelf your favorite vampy red lipsticks and start reaching for lighter and brighter tones of red. As someone who shies away from red lippies, I (secretly) love collecting this shade and racked up quite a collection of seasonally appropriate blends. While many sported their favorite matte blends this past winter, spring and summer invite women to try lip options that are lighter and silkier in texture. I’ve looked through my lovely reds and found that these two lipsticks are a must for spring. 

YSL Rouge PUR Couture Lipstick 1 Le Rouge
Of course the tube/packaging is super luxurious but the lipstick itself is a creamy blend of perfection. A true red that glides onto lips and packs an intense dose of color, YSL’s Rouge PUR Couture Lipstick in 1 Le Rouge is a must for any lipstick enthusiast. Best of all, this ultra bold red offers major color in a single swipe. A perfect red lipstick for the warmer months, this hydrating and ultra-light weight red lippie sets in a subtle satin finish.

Tom Ford Lipstick Cherry Lush 
Unlike YSL, Tom Ford Lipstick in Cherry Lush is a multifaceted red lipstick with fuchsia undertones. Blended with a super subtle iridescent pearl, this rich red gives a fresh touch to a classic shade. Featuring nourishing ingredients like chamomilla flower oil, murumuru butter and soja seen extract, TF’s lipsticks are both creamy and smooth. Often with ultra-creamy formulas, product tends to slip and move around quite easily but that is not the case with TF. This richly pigmented product stays put without drying out the lips. If you’re in the market for a lustrous red, opt for Cherry Lush, as it gives lips the perfect amount of luxurious color and luminosity.
