1. NYX Full Throttle Lipstick in Up the Bass

Highly pigmented and just brilliant - the red NYX lipstick is so stunning and so affordable that it deserves a place in every bride's trousseau. The best thing about it is that it is fit for any special events even after your wedding!

2. MAC Cosmetics Lipstick in Ruby Woo

Not too warm or too cool, this popular shade of red will flatter every skin tone, and the matte texture will give a long-lasting finish. This can be your go-to red lipstick that you can even wear at your wedding! It is a perfect everyday option but has that tone of red that also makes it classy for special events.

3. Marc Jacobs Beauty Le Marc Lip Creme Lipstick

Featuring a seductive red color that can be interpreted as amazingly sexy and self-contained, this bestseller by Marc Jacobs makes the perfect red lipstick that matches all of your bridal dress combinations.

4. Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick in Adora

The design of this lipstick’s rose tone is so nice that you will immediately want to put it on your list of wedding day makeup must-haves. It comes in studded packaging and even features tiny specks of gold throughout its pigment that acts as a great alternative to traditional reds.

5. YSL Rouge Pur Couture in Le Rouge

This French classic is the nicely designed and the goldish bridal lipstick that will dress your lips in couture color. With buying it for your big day, you will ensure that your lips are properly hydrated and enriched with antioxidants with a bold and creamy red coverage.

6. Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in F-Bomb

This deep, sumptuous red color will capture your guests’ attention without drawing too much attention away from your dress. It’s a statement lip tone that’s perfect for the bride craving a little drama. You can’t go wrong with this gem...it’s our CEO’s favorite!

7. LimeLight by Alcone Onyx Perfect Lipsticks in Black Cherry

More deep than bright, but still undeniably red, this is the perfect shade for a girl who’s classic with a twist. The matte finish looks edgy, chic, and totally put-together. This lipstick adds intensity to any look and offers opaque coverage that is surprisingly hydrating. *Note: this is a limited-edition item, but you can purchase through Elite Secrets here.

What Your Wedding Lipstick Shade Says About You

What Your Wedding Lipstick Shade Says About You

Not every bride treats her lips equally when it comes to the big day. Some prefer gentle and more relaxed lipsticks - and other are brave enough to go with the bold red. There are plenty of choices when it comes to lipstick shades, and you should know their meanings.

Mauve - Luxury With A Hint Of Mystery

Mauve is the softer shade of purple and a color that symbolizes a luxurious woman with a shade of mystery in her. It is great to show off your sophisticated style and portrays strength and confidence. Also, it is modern, trendy and stylish choice that many brides go for recently.

Hot Pink As The Color That Stands Out

Hot pink lipsticks are not for everyone. They are ideal for the brave and energetic brides who know how to light up a room and are never afraid to stand out. They replicate the center of attention and give a bubbly, excited and friendly flair to your wedding.

Coral - The Adventurer

Coral is a new trend and perfectly suits tanned brides with love for adventure and the outdoors. It replicates proud, bravery and ability to stand out for yourself. Brides who wear coral are lovers of the environment and want to spend weekends in the outdoors rather than sit at home.

Taupe As The Earth Shade

Down-to-earth is one way to describe taupe as a bridal lipstick shade. It makes your look wholesome and comfortable and in the same time genuine and dependable. It is natural and gives a hint of expression but at the same time laid back and not too flashy.

Bright Red For The Boldest Brides

Red is probably the boldest color of them all. It is sexy, passionate and confident. Brides who wear red lipsticks know what they want and what they deserve - and are passionate with their moods at all times.

Nude As The Confident And Classy Bride

Last but not the least - nude lipsticks replicate shyness and quiet. They are a great fit for brides who actually don't want to be the center of attention but still want to look classy and elegant and show their kindness and genuine personality.

So, have you found yourself in these bridal lipstick colors - and know what you are getting for the big day? Let us know in the comments!
