Show-stopper Red Lipsticks

While we like nude lipsticks, there's nothing like a bold red lip to finish off an outfit and give you a boost of confidence. But choosing from a never-ending sea of red lipsticks can be a daunting task that leaves many of us overwhelmed and undecided. 

That's why we've rounded up our favorite show-stopper reds below. These crazy-good lipsticks are the top-rated and bestselling reds that look good on nearly every complexion, and they can all be shipped worldwide with MyUS!

MAC Russian Red $18.50

MAC has a gorgeous selection of red lipsticks, but Russian Red is a standout favorite. It's a slightly deeper, true classic red with intense bluish-red undertones and a matte finish that complements a wide range of complexions. 

"This is the PERFECT red lipstick for any skin tone...and the texture is smooth as silk! It cost a bit more than I usually pay, but it IS by MAC...and they are a socially responsible company!" says SF2LAGAL in her product review. 

MAC Ruby Woo $18.50

At first glance, MAC's Ruby Woo looks very similar to the Russian Red we just mentioned; both have bluish-red undertones and a matte finish, but when applied, Ruby Woo is a bit brighter, more of a cherry red that looks great on every skin tone.

"My all time favorite red! It is not glossy or too dry and perfect to put on with bare face or with makeup. I always get the most compliments when I have my ruby woo on!" says Wafaq in her glowing review.

Sephora Collection Cream Lip Stain Liquid Lipstick in Always Red $15

When the holidays roll around, the Radio City Rockettes can be seen on stage sporting Always Red, Sephora's bright and satiny liquid lipstick. With all that dancing, kicking, and sweating, you know this liquid lip stain has staying power. It glides on smooth and transforms from a creamy texture into a lightweight matte stain that will take you from AM to PM, no touch-ups required!

"I bought this in the color, 01 Always Red - it is the absolute best red lipstick. It goes on as a liquid and dries as a beautiful velvet matte red lip. It lasts the entire day and I touched up a little after meals but I didn't really need to. It's hard to remove so you'll need a good cleansing oil or some coconut oil to take it off. If you're looking for a bold matte red lipstick, this is perfect." says a satisfied Sephora customer in her five star review. 

FENTY BEAUTY by Rihanna Stunna Longwear Lip Color in Uncensored $25

Rihanna knows a thing or two about the perfect red lip, so it's no surprise that she's created one of the sexiest and most popular reds on the market, FENTY BEAUTY by Rihanna Stunna Longwear Lip Color in Uncensored. It's mega-pigmented for intense color and has a soft matte finish, but it's also non-drying so lips stay soft and supple. 

"Best red I’ve ever wore. It just completely pops! Applied without re dipping and it wasn’t patchy. It doesn’t completely dry down, but that makes it really comfortable to wear. Plus, that packaging!" says jcarron13 in her glowing Sephora product review. 

Urban Decay Vice Lipstick in F-Bomb $19

For a retro red that just oozes old Hollywood glamour, we love Urban Decay's Vice Lipstick in F-Bomb. It's a true cool-toned creamy red with an insane pigment load, but it still feels great for hours and best of all, it looks absolutely amazing on everyone.  

"Favorite Lipstick ❤️" says Terri B in her five-star review. 

Too Faced Melted Matte Lipstick in Lady Balls $21

Too Faced's Melted Matte Lipstick in Lady Balls is our favorite power red, a true red perfect for those moments when you need an extra boost of confidence. It comfortably coats lips with a wash of intense, high-impact, super-saturated color that lasts for hours and ensures your lip color always looks rich, full, and kissable—and is never dry, shriveled, or cracked. 

"My absolute favorite liquid lipstick and shade! Hands down the most flattering shade of red I’ve ever bought!" says nurseamanda23 in her Sephora product review.
