The One Lipstick Shade Gigi and Beyoncé Love This Season
Nothing completes a look like a swipe of lipstick. We all have our tried-and-true favourites we turn to in times of need, but it’s time to make room on the shelf: red, a timeless classic, is now trending with a twist. Gigi Hadid has been seen rocking the bright neon red from day to night, and even Beyoncé has been spotted sporting the red-hot hue.
The thing is, finding the perfect shade of fiery, orange-y red can seem nearly impossible. Too red, and it looks garish during the day; too orange, and you'll look washed out. Deciding between Lady Bug and Dangerous or Ruby Valentine and Red Royal isn't as always as easy as it seems. But if Bey and Gigi can do it, then so can we (with a narrowed down, beauty editor approved list of course).

Urban Decay Matte Revolution Lipstick in Tilt ($36)
This shade from Urban Decay's lipstick line is an even mix of red and orange, with a super pigmented and creamy formula that will stay on your lips. Nourishing ingredients, including avocado, jojoba, and babassu oils keep your lips softly hydrated.
Kosas Lipstick in Thrillist ($32)
This vibrant red lipstick from indie lipstick brand Kosas has tangerine undertones, and can be applied as a full-coverage lipstick or a sheer stain—just tap the colour into your lips with your finger for a more natural effect. Plus, it's made with sweet orange oil that acts as a collagen booster and also happens to smell amazing.
NYX Matte Lipstick in Indie Flick ($13)
It is no wonder that this lipstick is a drugstore (and beauty editor) favourite. The formula is super-matte, but doesn't flake or crack, and the look-at-me red is easy to wear and surprisingly flattering on everyone. Prepping with some lip liner will ensure that it stays put day without having to reapply.
Tom Ford Lip Color Matte in Flame ($78)
This matte lipstick from Tom Ford is worth the splurge. It creates a velvety, slightly creamy finish that lasts for hours, and the luxurious formula glides on evenly while remaining lightweight. Plus this particular shade of red-orange is a staple in almost every makeup artist's kit!
