Hot Dish Must-Haves: Top 5 Red Drugstore Lips

Some love them for special occasions while others can't walk out the door without them. No matter how you wear your red lip, every girl has to have one and it shouldn't cost a fortune. Here are my top 5 red lipstick picks from the drugstore.
  1. The Satin Red – Although not technically a satin lipstick, Rimmel's Lasting Finish Matte Lipstick by Kate Moss in Kiss of Life has a subtle sheen to it when worn. From it's even application to its intense opacity with one swipe, this neutral red flatters both warm and cool skin tones and lasts .

  2. The Versatile Red - NYC's City Duet 2-in-1 in The Red Hots is easily the cheapest red lip to make the list, yet it gives you three lip colors in 1! One one side is a blue-based red while the other has more of a medium salmon. Worn alone they give a great day-to-night contrast, but combine them and get a happy medium. Versatility combined with a creamy texture and longer-than-average wear pushes this cheapie into the top 5!

  3. The Orange-Red – Kardashian Beauty's Joystick Lip Lacquers shocked me with their smooth texture and lasting power. Retro Red is an orange-leaning red with a nearly-matte finish. It's supremely opaque and wears evenly throughout the day. Bonus: the tapered tip makes staying in the lines with this bold color a breeze!

  4. The Matte Red – Affordable matte lipsticks are hard to come by. If they don't dry your lips out, they wear off in into a flaky, uneven mess. NYX Matt Lipstick in Perfect Red is a diamond in the rough with its smooth texture and long-lasting, even wear. While I won't say it hydrates, it certainly doesn't dry lips out which is a vast improvement.

  5. The Balmy Red – While a matte lip will instantly give any look a classic, retro vibe, sometimes a girl has to have a sheen to emphasize her pout. L'Oréal's Colour Riche Lipcolour in British Red is a blue-based lipstick that provides the opacity of a lipstick with more of a creamy balm finish for a healthy lip look. Alternatively, you could opt for an actual balm like Revlon's Lip Butter in Candy Apple – not quite as opaque, but it provides the same balm-finish.
