Finding Your Drugstore Red


Hey guys! For one of this week's posts I thought I'd share my top four favorite drugstore red lipsticks! Sometimes looking at the drugstore's lipstick section can be so overwhelming! I feel like we never know whether to just go for the products we see advertised the most on television or to search for some of the hidden treasures! I've tried out a lot of different drugstore red lipsticks throughout the years. A lot of other brands can be really expensive and not always convenient to keep repurchasing! Kate Rimmel's Matte Lipstick in 111 Kiss of Life, Revlon's Ultra HD red lipstick in Gladiolus, Maybelline's Color Sensational in the color 890 Neon Red, and CoverGirl's Colorlicious Lipstick in Succulent Cherry 295 are definitely my top 4 drugstore red lipsticks!


All four are amazing shades of red, but if I had to pick one, I would pick Kate Rimmel's Kiss of Life! The color is seriously what I would describe as the perfect red. It's a little bit darker than the other three but not too overwhelming in color. It stays on so well and looks incredible on! However, I do tend to reach for it more often in the winter!


If you are looking for more of a summery red I would say Revlon's Ultra HD red lipstick in Gladiolus is the best choice! It's so moisturizing and has a really pretty bright red shade to it. Especially on a hot day where you're afraid of your lipstick fading or getting everywhere, I think Gladiolus is easiest to apply without worry! 


I've personally always loved lipsticks that have a bit of an orangey shade to them, especially this time of year! If you're looking for more of an orangey-red, I recommend Maybelline's Color Sensational in Neon Red 890. It's definitely the lightest red out of the four. 


Another drugstore favorite of mine is CoverGirl's Colorlicious Lipstick in Succulent Cherry 295! The lipstick is so moisturizing and easy to apply, and I never have to put on too much to get a pretty red shade!


When it comes to drugstore red lipsticks, these are definitely my top four and the ones I repurchase most often! Let me know which drugstore reds are your favorites!
