Red lipstick is a whole mood: It can be worn on its own and make an otherwise boring look pop, or it can be added to a glam outfit to take it up another notch.
Red lipstick has a history laced with power and rebellion; from Elizabeth Arden herself handing out red lipsticks back in 1912 when women were marching for the right to vote, to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the youngest woman to ever be elected to Congress, wearing red lipstick and hoops to her swearing in ceremony. It's more than just a shade, it's a statement.
With that in mind, here are the best red lipsticks of all time... so you can add them to your makeup bag and make your own statement.
