Thanks hon! At the moment I have a couple favorite reds (it’s getting back into my favorite lipstick season!!) and they’re all inexpensive!
Wet n Wild MegaLast lipstick “Coral-ine” - $2
This is an amazing, super opaque red shade with slightly orange undertones, making it look really vibrant. I think it’s appropriate for any season and is definitely the type of red that would suit any skin tone. This has a long lasting matte finish.
Wet n Wild MegaLast Lipstick “Stoplight Red” - $2
These are my favorite drugstore lipsticks so bear with me, haha! This is a much more “true red” shade, also very opaque but with a creamy finish. I recommend blotting off the excess of this, but it’s also very flattering and a true, bright red.
Milani Color Statement Lipstick “High Voltage” - $6
This is an ultra-creamy, pigmented lipstick whose color lives up to its name! It’s a really bright, vibrant red with orange undertones.
NYX Round Lipstick “Electra” - $5
This is the perfect red lipstick. It is a cream formula but isn’t too greasy, and it really locks onto your lips with no bleeding. The color is intense but very neutral and perfect for any skin tone or season!
I hope by now you all realize that when you ask me my favorite, I’m not going to be able to give you just one, lmao!! These are just the ones I’ve been loving recently.
Hi there! I have a couple very close dupes, but nothing exactly perfect. Both of my “dupes” are a bit more sheer, but the color is really similar!
Clinique ::: “Mightiest Maraschino” ::: $16
Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain ::: “Romantic” ::: $7
Hard Candy All Glossed Up Hydrating Gloss Stain ::: “Red Mix” ::: $5
Wet n Wild MegaLast Lipstick

Both are correct… for the most part. ”Coral” wouldn’t be an undertone as much as it would be a shade of red… a pink-toned orange. If you’re into coral, choose one that is as pink as you can, like Revlon Superlustrous CoralBerry lipstick
When looking for a true red lipstick, reds with pink tones or blue undertones will be your friends. They will flatter the cool tones of your skin. Lipsticks with blue undertones will also make your teeth look whiter!
Revlon Matte in In The Red
Revlon Colorburst in True Red
Covergirl LipPerfection in Tempt (To all of the world, this shade is called “Tempt” not “Tempt Seduction”… “Seduction” is the name in Espanol…)
Maybelline ColorSensational in Red Revolution
Maybelline ColorSensational in Red Revival
Wet n Wild MegaLast in Red Velvet
NYX Black Label in Hebe
Lipsticks with blue undertones are flattering on all skin tones, including those with dark skin.
If you have warm undertones to your skin, you may also choose reds that have a yellow undertone to them (think fire-engine red, or orangey-shades). These will compliment your skin tone as well.
