We witnessed the rise of liquid lipsticks in 2016, thanks to Kylie Cosmetics and her famous liquid lip kits. Other brands followed suit and released a ton of liquid lipsticks in the market, but the hype has simmered down and given way to highlighting, spearheaded by Fenty Beauty. Now, the brand has done it again and announced the release of its red liquid lipstick, billed as one red for all.

Stunna is Fenty Beauty’s first liquid lipstick and is marketed as a red shade that suits all skin tones. That sounds a bit unrealistic, as we all have different skin tones and undertones. Then again, it’s not impossible to create a universal shade (proven with NARS’ Orgasm blush), and we believe Rihanna will be able to pull it off, especially after releasing 40 foundation shades in her first launch.

While we patiently wait for Stunna (priced at RM105) to be released online starting 26 November and in Sephora stores nationwide starting 27 November, just remember that there are other red liquid lipsticks in the market that are worth trying too. Here we’ve listed 10 of our favourite red liquid lipsticks featuring a good mix of shades with cool and warm undertones, to tide you over till the release of Stunna.

1
Zoeva's Pure Lacquer Lips

If you aren’t too keen on matte finishes, go for this liquid lipstick, which combines the intense, radiant colour of a liquid lipstick and high-shine of a gloss in one lightweight formula. It coats the lips comfortably for an ultra shiny finish.

Kat Von D's Everlasting Liquid Lipstick

This lippie from Kat Von D swipes on like a gloss before drying to a true matte finish that feels weightless all day long. The breakthrough formula has vitamin E and sunflower seed extract for extra moisture. No surprises then, that it’s one of the best-selling products in Von D’s beauty line.

Tarte's Tarteist Creamy Matte Lip Paint

This liquid lipstick is described as a ‘traditional lipstick that’s been liquefied and concentrated’, resulting in a velvety texture and matte finish. It gives full coverage and has a more precise application thanks to the ergonomically slanted, soft applicator.

Guerlain's Liquid Intense Matte Lipstick

Lipsticks should not only give you good coverage, but also provide moisturising properties for a more comfortable experience. This Guerlain liquid lipstick, for example, has hyaluronic acid and tiger grass that moisturises without neglecting colour coverage.

Urban Decay's Vice Liquid Lipstick

Apart from glosses and mattes, red liquid lipsticks may also come in metallic finishes. The one that gets our vote is Urban Decay’s Cruel, a brick rose with gold shimmer. All Vice Liquid Lipsticks are water and transfer-proof, so party away without worries.

Stila's Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick

This Stila product gives a creamy-matte finish that is also both weightless and long-lasting when applied on the lips. Pair it with the brand’s matching lip liner for an extra boost of staying power, or use on its own without fear, as the lipstick stays in place for up to six hours of continuous wear.

Too Faced's Melted Latex - Liquified High Shine Lipstick

Lipstick application with this will be just like applying honey to your lips. The texture clings onto the lips with latex-level shine, giving your lips a lacquer-like vibrancy and juicy gleam.
