Shades of Red: Our Favorite Red Lipsticks & A Little History for You

Red lipstick is one of the very famously worn lip colors all over the world. The reason why red color is such a huge favorite is because it makes an everlasting impression on the viewers. Other than that, red lipstick can also do wonders for a woman’s self confidence. It is known that women automatically end up feeling more composed and self assured.

Red color has been made into an evergreen fashion by icons like Marilyn Monroe and Lady Gaga. There was even a time when Queen Elizabeth popularized it so much that it was used in place of currency. She even went as far as applying it to her death bed! The Elizabethans believed that red lipstick had healing powers too.

Some of our favorites available at are:

  1. Estee Lauder Pure Color Love Lipstick Heart Edition

This is one of the most favorite shades available at Ulta. With a gleaming red color, it leaves an everlasting mark on the minds of the viewers and is very long lasting as well. Enclosed in a beautiful package, it is a great shade to pull off with a plain black dress.
