Sporting a red lipstick is timeless and iconic. It’s bold and eye-catching, basically becoming an accessory in and of itself. From classic true reds to bright and vibrant coral-ish, and pink reds, we can’t get enough of these hues, but we’ve been excited to sport something darker and moody. We’re talking everything from blood red lipsticks, shades of burgundy and deep wine reds, and more. A dark red lipstick is perfect for embracing your gothic, vampy side. Plus, it’s the go-to shade when you want to switch your hues to something fitting for the fall and winter season. We curated the best dark red lipsticks on the market.
We found a whole variety of dark red shades that differ ever so slightly, whether you want something like a warmer-toned brown-ish red, a cooler-toned blue-ish red, or something in between. We found stunning shades from some of our favorite brands like Nars, Mac Cosmetics, Fenty Beauty, and more. We included a good range of formulations, including a few matte options, creamy and hydrating lipsticks, and even one with a high-shine gloss like finish. We got you covered with traditional lipsticks and liquid lipsticks as well. Shop our top picks ahead.
