Will you be wearing your red, white, and/or blue on July 4th? I’m most likely going to sport a red lip, at the very least! Here are five of my picks for a little red-themed inspiration, and it was quite hard to narrow it down, because there are so many awesome red lipsticks and polishes in particular. So think of this as just a moment in time – surely if I picked a week from now, it would be different :)

  1. Fyrinnae Hitched — a bold, warm red with a beautiful satiny sheen
  2. Zoya Blaze — a deeper, cool-toned red with sparkle
  3. Maybelline Very Cherry — rich, cherry red with a matte finish for under $10
  4. Make Up For Ever #99 — pure matte red for those who dare to go big
  5. Guerlain Garconne — classic, sumptuous deepened red

And for fun, I pulled ‘em all up to compare here.

What’s your favorite red-hued product?

  1. MAC’s Riri Woo. New favorite lipstick! I never thought to try such a cool toned shade but it works great with my pale complexion.

  2. its funny how zoya blaze looks almost purple in the bottle but on the nail reads red!

    I really need to just bite the bullet, and order Hitched… I have several red eye products, but nothing with a metallic finish. While I’m at it, Sugarpill Love+ seems like a good buy, too.

  4. A little disappointed not to see Sugarpill’s Love+, my go-to red eyeshadow. Matte and BRIGHT; not cranberry but RED!

    Love love love the Fyrinnae Hitched but they do not seem to be available in the UK :( Lucky Americans always get the best stuff.

    • According to Fyrinnae’s website, they only do not ship to: “Regretfully, we do not ship to Italy, Spain, or Philippines.” Otherwise, “Shipping cost for orders under $75 to all other worldwide destinations is from $4.60 to $8.80 (may vary slightly by destination country, but does not exceed $8.80).”
