Red lipstick is a complete game changer when it comes to make-up. It can transform your look from casual to gorgeous instantly. Though we love looking at celebrities wearing red lipsticks, often we are scared to try it out ourselves. The common belief is that you need to have a fair skin to be able to carry this color with elan. Thankfully this is a myth. Red looks amazing for any complexion, and if you have stayed away from it this long, you must try it now. MAC has some splendid shades of red, and who doesn’t love MAC. But buying them all is not possible even for a make-up addict. Hence, we bring to you the best reds from MAC with their dupes.

What we love: A red lipstick that is nothing short of a legend, yes that is what Ruby Woo is. A hugely popular color, Ruby Woo is known to last forever, and we love it for its extra matte feeling.
