5 Shimmering Red Lipsticks to Try

When I think about a go-to color for a bold, party look, I always think red. I’m curious to know what your go-to color is when you think about it! There aren’t nearly as many shimmery/metallic reds as there should be, in my opinion, that are permanently available. I’d love to hear about more that I’m missing out on!

  1. Kat Von D Adora — A Warm Red with a Metallic finish.
  2. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Role Play — A Warm Red with a Frost finish.
  3. NARS Christina — A Warm Red with a Frost finish.
  4. Milani Cherry Crave — A Warm Red with a Metallic finish.
  5. Hourglass Siren — A Warm Red with a Metallic finish.
