This Valentine's Day, we are recommending you to go for an iconic red lip. Why? Not only red is the colour of love, but it is also bold, alluring, and universally flattering!

Trust us when we say this, there’s nothing in the world that exudes glamour and confidence like a classic red lipstick!
But we admit that the task of finding just the right tone of the shade, from cool undertones to some with warm undertones, and just the right finish, from glossy to matte, can be daunting.
Don’t fret! To help you find your perfect match, we've put together a list of some of the best red lipsticks you can add to your makeup kit for the day of love!

No perfect red lipsticks list is complete without MAC’s Ruby Woo on it! This ultimate bold bestselling red matte lipstick certainly belongs in your makeup arsenal.
Ruby Woo is the bright red matte bullet lipstick that flatters every skin tone on the planet. Yes, Indian skin tone, too! It has a highly pigmented formula that makes it glide like a dream.
Do you know what the best part is? Its opaque colour has blue undertones that will make your teeth look whiter. However, sometimes, it dries lips a little so you might need to apply lip balm before donning this beautiful shade.

If you are not a fan of bullet lipsticks and don’t enjoy liquid lipsticks either, then, this can be your go-to lipstick!
The Soft Matte Lip Cream from NYX Professional straddles the line between lipstick and gloss. Staying true to its name, its formula is creamy which applies like silk, and sits comfortably on the lips even after drying to a matte finish.
For a true red, the shade “Amsterdam” is a must-have. It not only goes on fully opaque in one single swipe without streaking but also has a pleasant fragrance. Win-win, we say!
