Hi Prepsters

I have put a list up of my favourite ten red lipsticks available in Canada. From deep dramatic shades, to bright classic ones, here are the best options for you to try out!



Stila - Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in "Beso"

Ever since Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wore this lipstick during her Democratic Primary win for N.Y’s 14th Congressional District, the colour has been sold out at Sephora’s North America Wide. This lipstick hue is bright but wearable, the ultimate statement lip.

Smashbox - Always On Matte Liquid Lipstick in "Bawse"

This colour was designed by Toronto’s own superstar Youtuber, Lily Singh. The colour is universally flattering and the eight-hour, liquid matte lipstick swipes on ultrasoft, with highly pigmented colour

MAC Cosmetics - Lipstick Matte in "Ruby Woo"

A makeup staple in not only my bag, but queen Rihanna’s too (pre Fenty of course), Ruby Woo is an outstanding colour that looks amazing on every skin tone. Also, the undertone of blue in this lipstick shade actually makes your teeth look whiter.

This colour is Taylor Swift’s favourite. The long lasting, non-drying formula is enriched with Vitamin E with a combination of unique silicones, ensuring long-lasting, seamless matte colour for hours.
