Red Hot Lips

Whether you’re looking to make your pout kissable this Valentine’s or just get dolled up for a night out with friends, here’s the scoop on the hottest red lips out there—even for those who never thought they could pull off the shade.

Smashbox
Always on Matte Liquid Lipstick in Bawse
The matte finish on this lipstick tones done the bold red hue, but don’t let the dry look fool you. It’s formulated with Smashbox’s Oil Primer so lips stay super moisturized. What we like best—it’s so long-lasting that potentially no touch up will be required. $24, sephora.com

Giorgio Armani
Lip Magnet Liquid Lipstick in Hollywood
Since we LOVE his clothes, we are thrilled that Armani’s lip colors don’t disappoint either. We suggest subtle eyes to go with this wow-factor red that lives up to its theatrical name and will easily be the star of the show. $38, sephora.com

Dolce & Gabbana
The Classic Lip Cream Lipstick in Devil
There’s a bit of rose in this bright red lip color, so it’s not as in-your-face as some other shades. The creamy formula is ultra hydrating and the rose gold packaging will look sleek slipping out of your bag. $36, saksfifthavenue.com

Nars
Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Dragon Girl
For some, working with a lip pencil is much easier for staying in the lines than a lipstick or gloss—and this is one of our favorites. It’s a creamy formula that easily glides on but the magic is that it dries matte for a modern, sleek and sexy look. $26; narscosmetics.com

M.A.C.
Russian Red
This deep red has some cool undertones—maybe the cult classic came by it honestly as it was actually originally created in the nineties for Madonna’s “Blonde Ambition” tour. It was as popular than as it is now. $17, maccosmetics.com

Kevin Aucoin
The Expert Lip Kit
This new kit—perfect for you or as a Vday gift for a bff—comes with three products that when used together make the perfect three-dimensional lip the brand is known for. You don’t have to be a professional makeup artist to get it down, but you do need a bit of patience to get the perfect look. The femme fatale kit color includes The Flesh Tone Lip Pencil, The Expert Lip Color and The Lip Gloss. $48, kevinaucoin.com
