6 x the perfect orange red lipstick

Best orange red lipsticks with warm undertone



Orange lipsticks have a special place in my heart. They suit my colors really well and compliment the blue in my eyes. Since my undertone is warm, orange lipsticks don’t stand out as much as cool reds on me. Then again, cool red lipsticks compliment my skin, because they create a contrast between my warm skin and the cool red. The same applies the other way around, so if you’re cool, a warm orange can look amazing on you. I actually played with cool and warm colors in the photo above by pairing my warm makeup with cool blue shirt.


I shared my favorite red lipsticks a while back, but I wanted to dedicate another post to orange-red lipsticks. Here are all the best warm orange lipsticks that I love!

Most of these are organic and three are actually from my favorite natural brand, Zuii Organic. I received them in pr. The Kjaer Weis lipstick is also organic and refillable, making it very eco-friendly.

Zuii Organic Lux Paris

Zuii Organic Lux Paris

Zuii Organic Lux, Paris

Such a beautiful deep orange shade with a hint of red. It actually does remind me of Paris, because on my first trip to the city I wore orange lips. Zuii’s Lux range lipsticks are slightly more luxurious compared to the normal lipstick packaging. Satin finish.

Zuii Organic Siren Lipstick Best Orange

Zuii Organic Siren Lipstick

Zuii Organic, Siren

Another gorgeous color – this is more orange compared to Paris. Very suitable for every day wear. I’ve actually worn this a lot lately. All Zuii’s lipsticks are super comfortable to wear, since they contain natural oils and waxes that keep your lips moisturized. Satin finish.

Zuii Organic Lux Coral Red Lipstick

Zuii Organic Lux Coral Red

Zuii Organic Lux, Coral Red

Beautiful coral red, as the name suggests. This is a warm option for Zuii’s classic red, which is cool. Beautiful color. Satin finish.

Here is one more comparison of the three Zuii shades. Even though there are similarities, the shades are quite different from each other.

Kjaer Weis, Amour Rouge 

Refillable. Very long lasting matte lipstick with intense orange red color. Really adore this. Check out my post about other Kjaer Weis products!

YSL Tatouage Couture Matte Stain Crazy Tangerine

YSL Tatouage Couture Matte Stain, 2 

YSL’s Orange Tangerine looks very orange when first applied, but it then dries out a bit more red. I like YSL’s Tatouage Matte Stain’s consistency, because they’re super lightweight, yet pigmented and long lasting.

Rimmel Provocalips Kiss Me You Fool

Rimmel Kiss Me You Fool

Rimmel Provocalips, Kiss Me You Fool

The only kiss proof lipstick on this list. Once you have it on, it stays. It can only be removed with a waterproof makeup remover. Kiss Me You Fool is the perfect warm red with a hint of orange. The lipstick has two sides: a matte color and a hydrating gloss. The gloss can be added throughout the day and that makes wearing this otherwise matte lipstick more comfortable.

The perfect red lipstick. 

If I can pull off a red lip, I’m pretty sure I can own a house, do my own taxes, get through terrifying social situations and pretty much conquer the whole world. Red lipstick is a classic product that is as simple as it gets, yet sometimes it’s the most powerful makeup you can wear.

I know the struggle of finding just the right red shade so in this post I’m sharing all the best red lipsticks I’ve found. I chose gorgeous classic pure reds, that lean more to the cool side. If you’re looking for warmer orange red shades, stay tuned, because I’m doing another post soon where I list all the best orange lipsticks.

Perfect red lipsticks

Here are the six best red lipsticks from my collection. Two of these are organic, so if you’re into natural beauty, you don’t have to compromise on the quality or color. I also have some luxury options and some inexpensive drugstore lipsticks as well.

Avril Lipstick Pencil, Vrai Rouge

Certified organic

You’re guaranteed to succeed with this, because the pencil is so easy to apply. The color is a perfect red. More on the matte side, since it is a pencil. This has a fruity scent, which surprised me positively!

IsaDora Perfect Matt Lipstick, Red Carpet

The perfect matte red lipstick. It’s neutral or just slightly cool. This has been my ride or die since I found it eight years ago. I used this on these two bridesmaids. Such a universally flattering red! The matte consistency also stays really well.

Wearing Jane Iredale Gwen lipstick. From the post: makeup tips from my childhood makeup idol.

Jane Iredale Triple Luxe Lipstick, Gwen

A red with a raspberry tint to it. Shiny finish. This is my favorite lipstick formula – it’s so comfortable. The lipstick packaging in itself is also perfect with a magnetic closure and all that.

Zuii Organic Classic Red

Certified Organic

Zuii’s Classic Red is indeed a beautiful classic red. I’ve used this before a lot (I got a new fresh one for this post). Zuii’s lipstick formula is another favorite of mine. Since it’s packed with natural oils and waxes, it feels comfortable on the lips, even though it’s semi matte.

YSL Tatouage Couture Matte Lipstick, 12

YSL Tatouage Couture Lipsticks are not only pretty, but the liquid lipstick formula is really well done as well. It’s super thin, yet packed with pigment. Matte. This has the slightest hint of orange in it, but I’m still categorizing it as red.

best red lipstick rimmel play with fire

Rimmel Provocalips Kiss Proof Lip Colour, Play With Fire

This is the only one of these, that is actually smudge proof. Or kiss proof – really. It stays super well and can only be removed with a waterproof makeup remover. (Speaking from experience. Good thing to remember when you don’t have one at home and you’ve already applied it on.) This is very pigmented and a slightly deeper shade of red. The gloss gives gloss and moisture – but if you don’t like a gloss, you can skip that and you’ll have a matte finish.
