The Best Red Lipstick for Fall!

1| OCC Lip Tar ‘Stalker’This is a true blue-based dark matter red. As always with the OCC Lip Tar’s a little bit goes a long way & with this one that reigns tremendously true. You could probably get a good two years out of this while using it every day.

2| Maybelline Color Sensation Vivid ‘On Fire Red’This deep red is one of my absolute favorites and the low, low price tag doesn’t hurt either.

3| Revlon Lip Butter ‘Candy Apple’This bright red is absolutely amazing, perfect for Fall and Winter and one my the true reds that are out. You can grab it all at the drugstore!

4| Milani Color Statement ‘Cherry Crave’The name of this sums it all it’s the perfect cherry shade!

5| Covergirl Lip Perfection ‘Hot’A dark maroon-ish red that’s all around affordable.

6| MAC ‘Ruby Woo’This one right here is an ultimate cult favorite and with good reason. It’s the perfect red, if you want a red lipstick and are having trouble choosing… pick this one.

7| Rimmel by Kate 7 Matte Collection ‘111’This deep red borders on the purple side and makes it a perfect shade for fall.

8| Stila Color Balm ‘Ruby’Love that this one looks absolutely like ruby red shoes.

9| Wet N Wild ‘Spotlight Red’A bright red that is under $5? You can’t get better then that.

10| Tarte Glamazon ‘Fierce’This is one of my favorites because the red is perfect for pale skin & can easily be rocked with a tan. This one is super long lasting.

  • I also love Revlon’s Lip Butter in Red Velvet. It’s a deeper, cool red that’s ALMOST an oxblood shade– so on trend right now!

  • My favorite red lipstick right now is Milani’s Color Statement Lipstick in “Best Red”, like you said, the name says it all. It’s the best!

  • I love the Maybelline Color Sensational in “Infra-Red” (I believe it may have been limited edition). It’s just the perfect true red color! I love the Rimmel Kate lipsticks and am surprised I don’t have 111 yet. (I really wish they would give those names instead of just numbers!) I’m definitely going to be picking that one up! 🙂


  • My favorite is MAC RiRi Woo, that being said, I’m 99% positive it’s basically a dead on dupe of Ruby Woo.
    Great post!

  • My current favorite is the Mrs. Mia Wallace lipstick by Urban Decay (limited edition for the Pulp Fiction collection). It is just everything I’d want in a red lipstick- long-lasting/staining, even application, comfortable to wear, and the color is just bold and beautiful. Prior to that, I also loved (and still love) UD Gash, Revlon Lip Butter in Red Velvet, Bite Bramble (more like a wine color but it’s got lots of red in it), and Lipstick Queen Medieval (although it’s a very sheer red, I still love it).
