As a millennial in her twenties, the mildest inconvenience in life triggers my fight-or-flight response (true story). And no matter which path I opt to tread down on the said day and occasion —stay put, hustle and win at life or drop everything for an impromptu slaycation (if you will) to blow off some steam, I have to make sure that I look the part. Yes, to channel these extremities of emotions- from pure grit and resilience to nonchalance and everything in between -I have a gazillion different hues of red lined up neatly on my vanity. Brick, crimson, cherry, blood, rouge, a couple of burgundy sticks — these prized possessions amassed over the years bear witness to all my triumphs and tragedies.

Now that my eternal love for this beautiful shade is far from obscure, you will understand my penchant for adding more variations to the gigantic pre-existing library of reds, at my disposal. I am sure many of you concur one can never have enough reds in their vanity. No two shades which I possess are remotely similar and help me channel a different mood— all while making sure I look my best, confident self!

Since red is such an iconic, feel-good colour it rarely falters, and so with that thought, I have curated a list of some of the best red lipsticks in the market across different price points and formulations. A couple of my absolute favourites also feature on the list! Make sure to bookmark this page in time for the festive season.
