Top Drugstore Red Lipsticks

Today, I'm talking red lippies. I'm normally just a MAC Peach Blosom and Creme Cup kinda gal but recently I have really been getting into my reds and these are the ones I have been wearing on a daily basis.

Revlon Ultra HD Lipstick in shade 875 Gladiolus, this is the perfect pinky toned red lippie. I love the Revlon Ultra HD Lipsticks, they're really moisturising on the lips and go on so effortlessly. It has a lovely glossy finish so doesn't look too bold but still gives a lovely feminine image, I love this lipstick for the daytime as it's not drying in the slightest so I can wear all day without having to worry and also with it being quite soft in finish it's a lot more muted and subtle than the others making it perfect for the daytime.

Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Liquid Lipstick in shade 03 Hot Pepper, this is an orangey toned red so is perfect for a relaxed evening. If I'm going out for drinks one evening after work or meeting with friends for a casual drink then I apply a quick swipe of this. It glams up any outfit/look but isn't as dark or deep as some reds so you don't feel too done up. This is also great when going for drinks as it's a liquid lipstick and stains the lips so stays put throughout those one or two or even three glasses of wine, who's counting when you're with friends.

Lastly, it's the MaxFactor Lipfinity Long Lasting Lipsticks in shade 35 Just Deluxe. This is my current go to classic red lippe. It's the perfect true red that I would wear for an evening date night out or curled up in a cosy pub with a glass of red next to a roaring fire, perfect for the upcoming Autumnal months. It has a similar finish to the MAC Satin Finish lipsticks, not matte but super long lasting and hydrating enough to not dry your lips out throughout the day.

So they're my current favourite drugstore lippies and actually this post may aswell be called favourite red lipsticks as these are taking price of place over any premium lipstick that I currently own.

What are your favourite drugstore red lipsticks?


  1. Revlon ultra hd lipstick just launched a few weeks ago and I only got to try the pink shades, they're lovely, maybe I'll try the red shades too! My favourite drugstore red lipsticks are revlon matte lipstick in fabulous fig, a brownish red, and rire lip manicure in muse red which is the most flattering orangey red shade :)
