Five Amazing Deep Red Matte Lipsticks And Shiny Reds To Choose From DRUGSTORE
1. L’Oreal Pop Balm – “Fiery Red 430″ (Sheer tinted balm)
One of the best drugstore red lipsticks so far, the L’Oreal Pop Balm – “Fiery Red 430″ (Sheer tinted balm) is a mix of luscious red hints, kissable tones and smoothening touches for the lips, and stays for eight hours without drying your lips.

Call it the GEN Y lipstick if you may, the ultimate color it provides blows our minds off. You have to check the finish to be assured off and also the texture and color too, and the lightweight creamy formula which is embossed with vitamins. You get it in matte and vinyl shades, and be assured there are no parabens used in its making!
