There’s nothing as classy as a bold red lip. Red lipstick shades have been around for decades, and they are not going away anytime soon. Try different red matte lipstick shades like maroon, burgundy, reds with hints of orange, cool-toned reds, etc. to find one that works best for you. For example, the Maybelline Sensational Liquid Matte Lipstick shade Flush It Red is a cool-toned bluish red whereas the shade To The Fullest has orange undertones and is more warm. The weightless and non-sticky formula stays put on your lips without drying it out, perfect for when you want to give your lips a break without compromising on style.
