These Under-$10 Red Lipsticks Look Good On Almost Every Skin Tone

If you’re looking to update your makeup bag for summer with a fun new red lipstick, I’m here to help. I am a devoted lipstick wearer (I just don’t look good without it) and as such, I’ve had the opportunity to try countless formulas. The one thing I’ve learned? A great lipstick doesn’t have to cost a fortune.

As proof, I’m sharing three shockingly affordable reds that are not only less than $10, but also flattering on a myriad of different skin tones and complexions. If you (falsely) believe that you can’t wear red, I dare you to put these to the test. You’ll be a convert in no time.

Stowaway Cosmetics Creme Lipstick in Scarlet ($9)


There are so many things to love about this lipstick from Stowaway Cosmetics. The price is amazing, it's perfectly sized to fit in even the smallest clutch and the color goes on rich and bold with just a swipe or two. This is one of my personal faves.

NYX Professional Makeup Soft Matte Lip Cream in Monte Carlo ($4.89)


If you're a matte lipstick lover, then you have to try this formula from NYX. The color is vibrant, super long-lasting and universally flattering.

Palladio Herbal Lipstick in Just Red ($6.49)


Palladio is definitely one of those beauty brands that doesn't get nearly as much love and attention as they deserve. Not only is this lipstick formulated with ingredients that will keep your lips hydrated, but the color really is the perfect red.
