It’s the quest every woman undertakes in her lifetime: Finding the perfect red lip! I know for my pale skin and cool undertones, if I’m not careful, what looks like a rich, luscious red in a lipstick tube can look quite orange when I put it on! I find that blue-based reds look best on me. My e.l.f. favorites are the Moisturizing Lipstick in Red Carpet and the Mineral Lipstick in Cheerful Cherry, both of which are blue based reds. Warmer-undertoned gals should try the Moisturizing Lipstick in Velvet Rope, as well as the Matte Lip Color in Rich Red, all brighter, more pink reds, which are super flattering for your warm skin.
Late last week at the e.l.f. office, some of the other girls and I were talking our favorite e.l.f. reds, and got so excited, we had to bust them out! We grabbed all of our favorite red shades and swatched them like crazy. (From top left, going clockwise: Essential Lip Stain in Cherry Bomb, Studio Matte Lip Color in Rich Red, Essential Luscious Liquid Lipstick in Cherry Tart, Studio Moisturizing Lipstick in Red Carpet, Mineral Lipstick in Cheerful Cherry, Moisturizing Lipstick in Velvet Rope, and Essential Lipstick in Fearless.)
