When it comes to finding a good lip color, red is a classic no-fail plan – especially during those tricky days as we leave Winter and move into Spring. Not only is it an instant teeth-whitener, but the magic of the perfect red shade is that it flatters everybody, and if you’re not sure what that one is you can go ahead and pick up Maybelline’s innovative “Red for Me.” Until then here’s the ultimate list of red lip colors to help you ring in Spring.

MAC Cosmetics Ruby Woo
Let’s start with the obvious. It’s impossible to make a list of red lips and not included this iconic color. Ruby Woo is rich in blue undertones giving it complexion brightening qualities.

NARS Dragon Girl
If you haven’t tried a NARS lip pencil, I highly suggest you try it. Boosting a budge-proof formula, Dragon Girl is a traditional red with slight hints of pink to help your welcome in the spring blooms.

KKW Beauty Hot Sauce
This newbie on the scene has scored some serious IG buzz following its release earlier this month. Hot Sauce is the perfect orange-red that’s an simple way to start incorporating in the Spring bright trend.

Lime Crime Red Velvet
Nikki Bella and Riverdale queen bee Madison Pruitt have both made this Lime Crime must-have inseparable from their makeup bag, and for good reasons. This red lip exudes confidence and vibrance.
