What is the best affordable red lipstick?

Red lipstick, a staple for anyones make-up drawer. Finding the right red lipstick in the right shade can be a chore, but when you do it is so worth it. So I have put together a little list of all of my favourite affordable red lipsticks.

1. Jeffree Star in Redrum (Liquid lipstick) – £16.00

This lipstick is stunning! It is, in my opinion, the perfect red lipstick and for those who don’t like liquid lipstick Jeffree Star Cosmetics also do it in the Lip Ammunition. This lipstick is blue based so it will make your teeth look extra white and it will compliment everyone. **More the higher-end of affordable

  • Undertone: Blue
  • Type: Liquid and regular lipstick
  • Longevity: 6-8 hours
  • Cruelty free
  • Vegan friendly
  • Parabens and gluten free

2. Dose of color Matte Lipstick in Extra Saucy – £16.00

I recently purchased two Dose of color liquid lipsticks and I have to say I really like them. The formula is very thin and very, very matte. So though this may not suit everyone, you could easily throw on some lipgloss and you have yourself a beautiful deep red glossy lip. This is also on the higher-end end of affordability.

  • Undertone: Blue
  • Type: Liquid
  • Longevity: 6-8 hours
  • Cruelty free
  • Vegan friendly

3. NYX in Monty Carlo (Lip Cream) – £6.00

NYX is a great brand for affordable make-up at a great price point. Their formulas can be a bit hit-and-miss but for the best part they are consistent. The pigment is not as strong as other lipsticks but they feel really good on the lips. So for £6.00, and with such a huge colour range, yes please.

  • Undertone: Blue
  • Type: Lip cream
  • Longevity: 4-6 hours
  • Cruelty free
  • Vegan friendly

4. Milani amore metallic lip cream in Mattely in Love – £9.00

Milani is probably better know for their blushes but their metallic lip creams are pretty great and underrated. I will say their other lipsticks are not all that but the they really hit the ball out of the park with the metallic lipsticks, or at least they did for the ones I tried.

  • Undertone: Blue
  • Type: Lip cream (more like a liquid lipstick)
  • Longevity: 4-6 hours
  • Cruelty free

5. Sleek MakeUP True colour lipstick in Dare – £4.99

As many of us know Sleek does some bomb-ass highlighters but what you may not know is that they do really pigmented lipsticks, too. I have only tried a few shades but I have yet to find a formula that is not quite right. I would say though I really like this formula. This may not suit all lip textures, as I have heard it can collect on more textured lips.

  • Undertone: Brown
  • Type: Lipstick
  • Longevity: 2-4 hours
  • Cruelty free
