Best Affordable True Red Lipsticks


Best Affordable True Red Lipsticks

Hello Everyone,

Few days ago I was looking for a true blue toned red lipstick for myself to wear with my red saree for an occasion and I was not able to get the exact shades online! Then I came across a red shade which appeared somewhat similar to my preference and so I bought it! The next day I got the lipstick and tuned out it was a red shade with more orange undertones!

I didn’t want a MAC for sure as I didn’t want to shell out so much on a lipstick and believe that there are surely other affordable brands with equally stunning shades!

And so I thought of going back to my favorite place for cosmetic advice and landed some of the awesome shade of true red and that too in an affordable range!

Checkout which lipsticks I got from Wiseshe and finally what is my pick!
