Click on each lipstick name to go into individual reviews.
1. Mac Scarlet Ibis Lipstick : This is probably my favourite red lipstick at this point of time, but im fickle so it can change! An Orange toned red that is bright but not neon and is still super flattering on warmer skintones. Grab it with the latest Mac Marilyn Monroe Collection.
2.Mac Ruby Woo Lipstick: Ruby Woo is probably a cult favourite after Russian Red , and i can see why. While the formula is way too dry for me, there is no denying that this is a true red that is probably flattering on everyone. It doesnt have that icy cool tone of Russian Red and it isnt an orange red either. Its just a great, true red so its much more wearable
3.Mac Viva Glam 1 Lipstick: Viva Glam is a retro red ! Its a more muted , deeper lipstick than the others, so it has these older woman, sophisticated vibe to it. Think Old Hollywood glamour, with a deeper red lip, and you have yourself Viva Glam 1. This is a nice option for darker girls who dont want to wear a bright red.
4.Colorbar Lip Liner in True Red: K so its not a lipstick, but nobodys stopping you to use it as one , specially because its non drying. This is a beautiful true red, its not too bright, and not too dark and sits right in the middle of red good-ness that looks really really great on warm skintones. Its a nice way to ease into wearing red because its not ultra bright and you can sheer this out pretty easily.
5. Lakme Enrich Lip Color 352 : Lakme Enrich is a great budget option for those of you who want a nice red lipstick but not spend a bomb on it. The color flatters Indian skintones a lot, and its a lovely cherry tint that looks beautiful!
