I’m not sure if you know this, but I’m a little bit of a red lipstick aficionado. So with the day of hearts and flowers and red lips (gag gag gag, sorry) upcoming, I thought I would share my top red lipstick picks at every budget level (and in every formula)!

If you’ll remember, I initially thought I wanted the Surratt Alluring Automatique Lip Crayon (described as “a perfect red”), but when I saw them in person, I decided on the Surratt Mégalomane Automatique Lip Crayon (described as “a blue red”). I still think they are the counterparts to Ruby Woo and Russian Red, so we’ll see about that…
One day left to this
godforsaken year, so I thought I would share my favorite products. This year was a weird one, in terms of my beauty and skincare purchasing. I managed to earn Sephora VIB Rouge status in August, yet haven’t been able to buy too much since then. So I feel like I’ve already discussed my favorites previously, but, well, without further ado…
As luck would have it, this year was all about the foundation and lipsticks for me.
On my continuing quest to find the perfect red,* I decided it was high time I hit the Illamasqua counter. They have an amazing array of colors in their lipstick line, and I had read about Maneater and Sangers, in particular.
(*I’m starting to think there’s no such thing, but more on that a different time.)
Color me surprised that I wound up walking out with a shade I hadn’t even heard of. Box, described as a deep, scarlet red, was actually created by Illamasqua’s creative director, Alex Box, as her signature red lipstick. So it looked like I was in good company!
To the video tape! I mean photos…
