A red lip is a statement. Scratch that. It’s an announcement. It lets the world know you’re fierce, confident, and sassy. From glossy shades to matte hues, the red lip has dominated the beauty industry for decades. It doesn’t matter whether you’re into blue-toned reds or something a bit more bright, it’s nearly impossible to go wrong with this essential beauty product. Here, Source Beauty has compiled a list of our all-time favorite reds.
