With the Lunar New Year just around the corner, it is crucial to choose the ultimate red lipstick to amp up your look. Symbolic of good luck and prosperity, this auspicious colour can take you from dull to dazzling in an instant. However, the challenge is to find the right lippy: one that doesn’t bleed, dry your lips out or make your teeth appear yellow. Here are 5 different shades that will make you feel seductive and elegant at the same time. 

Fenty Beauty: Stunna Lip Paint in Uncensored

Known to be all-inclusive, Fenty Beauty’s base products have been proven to suit all skin types. Fuelled by the same vision, Rihanna’s lip product formulas do just that as well. The Stunna Lip Paint is said to be extremely pigmented and can last for 12 hours. The best part is that it doesn’t feel too heavy when applied.

By Poppy: Lipstick Queen in Medieval

Poppy King founded By Poppy after gaining experience working for Estee Lauder in New York. Her Lipstick Queen series features clear lip balms that are lightweight, semi-sheer and contain Vitamin E for hydration. We recommend Medieval: the perfect buildable shade to make your lips appear smooth and plump.

Rouge Dior in 999

Wear a part of history when you put on Rouge 999. This shade of bright cherry red dates back all the way to 1953, when Christian Dior first sent models on the runway wearing it. Choose between a matte or satin finish—depending on the occasion to set hearts on fire.

NARS: Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Dragon Girl

With celebrities such as Taylor Swift and Blake Lively frequently seen sporting Nars’ Dragon Girl on their lips, you simply can’t go wrong with it. Despite being branded as a matte lipstick, the consistency has proven to be creamy and long-lasting—perfect for a night out.

Kat Von D: Studded Kiss Lipstick in Hexagram

Studded Kiss’ packaging stays true to its name, with a black glossy casing that will not roll off your vanity table. Using a revolutionary new base formula that’s crystal clear, weightless and comfortable, this lipstick is a dream to apply and wear.
