Red roses, candlelit dinners, chocolate—February means that Valentine’s Day is almost here! Whether you’re planning a night out with your girlfriends or going on a special date, a red lip is the perfect accessory. From lipstick to gloss, there’s a crimson color and texture that suits every Beauty.
Ever felt like Goldilocks trying to find a red lipstick that's juuuuust right? According to makeup artist legend, any two shades of scarlet will create a lip color that's perfect for your skin tone. The Flipstick is double-ended with two different tones of the same shade (one even has a little shimmer), so whether you blend together both ruby ends or just use one, you'll be sure to have the most flattering lip color for your big night.
The last thing you want is a lip color that you have to worry about all night long. This deeply pigmented lip stain looks like a gloss when you first apply it, but leaves a rosy tint that will last for hours. Slick on a few coats for a glistening finish, or blot off any excess when you first apply the stain for a matte effect.
