I’m a true nude lipstick lover but that doesn’t mean I don’t like bright colors. I personally don’t wear them very often but once I do, I rediscover my love for them. I’ve gathered 5 bright lipsticks that are my absolute favorite and which I think are the best ones out there. Now spring has entered and summer is coming, it’s the perfect time to invest in a beautiful bright lipstick!
If you browse through my blog, you’ll see that I pretty much only purchase nude lipsticks. And no, not all nude lipsticks are the same! Haha. However, I do have a couple of brighter shades in my collection as well as brighter shades I really love but don’t own (just yet). I gathered my top 5 best bright lipsticks, colorwise as well as the quality of the product!
The 5 Best Bright Lipsticks
Boss – Kylie Cosmetics
Boss is such a beautiful red! I love how this looks on the model above as well as it looks on me. I got this shade as a mini in the Kylie Cosmetics x Kris Jenner collaboration mini lipstick set. It took me a while to finally put this on and I totally look like Snow White if I put this on in the winter lol but I kinda love that vibe! It’s a vibrant, true red which I adore.
As you might know, I have a huge Kylie Cosmetics obsession so it might not come as a surprise that I really love the formula of the liquid lipsticks! It doesn’t dry out my lips and they stay on the whole day, even after eating.
Unlocked – Fenty Beauty
You’ll find out in a second that I have a weakness for red and pink vibrant colors and this is one of them! I love this Fenty Beauty hot pink, called Unlocked! I don’t own this shade but I always drool about it when I see someone wearing it and once I’m confident enough to wear shades like this more often, I’m definitely purchasing this one!
I also really love the formula of the Fenty Beauty Stunna Lip Paints. I own the shade Uncuffed, which is actually a bright color on me because I’m pale, and I really like the formula so I’m sure I would like the formula of Unlocked as well.
Too Bad I’m Bad – Charlotte Tilbury
I got the Charlotte Tilbury Too Bad I’m Bad liquid lipstick as a gift during Black Friday and when I first put this on, I was shocked because it was way brighter than I expected it to be. The next shock was that it actually looked pretty good on me. I love this color, it’s pink but still vibrant on the lips.
The formula of this liquid lipstick has to be one of my favorites for sure! It actually made my lips look so good, even bigger without me overlining them and also very smooth. I love it!
Mama Boss – Kylie Cosmetics
I had to get the money roll which was included in the Kylie Cosmetics 2019 Birthday Collection. In the money roll were three different shades and the most vibrant of these 3 is definitely Mama Boss. It’s a true hot pink lipstick and I love how this looks. It’s a perfect summery shade!
This is a bullet lipstick though, which is different as the liquid lipsticks but still just as good. For the people who think the Kylie Cosmetics liquid lipsticks are too drying, I’m pretty sure you’ll love the matte bullet lipsticks since they give the same effect as the liquid lipstick but are a bit less dry on the lips.
Uncensored – Fenty Beauty
Last but definitely not least, Uncensored by Fenty Beauty. I believe this is just a statement red which every beauty lover should have in their collection. It’s a very universal red that looks great on a variety of skin colors.
It’s a true red, even more than Boss, with the most amazing undertone and it’s just the perfect red not going to lie. If you love bright colors, you need this one in your collection for sure! You actually need it in your collection, even when you don’t wear as much bright lipstick like me, just for the one or two times you want a bright color on the lips lol.
What’s your favorite bright lipstick? Let me know in the comments!
I love Uncensored, it such a good red and the formula is amazing
Yes totally agree!
With summer right around the corner, bolder lipstick is sure going to be huge! I love a good and sexy red, but the one from Charlotte Tilbury is quite nice as well!
Red is always a good choice! As you can tell, I also love vibrant pink as well!
I loved red lipsticks. My favourite brands are Faceshop, Innisfree, and Laneige.
I really want to try products from Laneige!
Uncensored & Uncuffed are both on my wish list!! Everyone raves about the Fenty formula. My favorite bright liquid lippies are Holy Grail & Phoenix from Persona! ?
I need more Persona lippies in my life! I only have one gloss as of right now 🙁
I’m just like you in that I love nude/mauve lip colors the best. Every now and then I like a hot pink or fuchsia. A nice vibrant orange makes the cut sometimes as well. Since I review so many products, I also have plenty of purples, greens, blues, black, etc. but I’m definitely not daring enough to wear them! Thanks for sharing your top picks, they look wonderful.

I totally feel the same, I’m already scared to wear a red lipstick let alone purple/blue/black or any other color lol! I love how other people can pull them off though!
I love Uncuffed too, it’s such a gorgeous shade. I pretty much like all of the Fenty Beauty Lip Stunna Paints. I’ve tried Uncensored before and it’s such a gorgeous, true red shade. It always reminds me of the type of lipstick you’d see on the red carpet! Both of those Kylie Cosmetics shades are divine too. I always shy away from bright pinks as I don’t think they suit me, but I love them on other people! I love all of the shades you’ve picked in this list
Yes! Uncensored is the perfect red carpet lipstick for sure!
