If you’ve ever been on the hunt for a retro feeling red lipstick, then you know exactly how exhausting this search can be. You can spend hours looking for the perfect shade online and in store only to come away empty handed.

Some reds are too matte, others too orange or pink to be able to fully embody what most women want in a retro red lipstick. We’ve spent a lot of time testing and looking for that one go-to red lipstick that could give us our silver screen siren look that we yearn for. We found it in a tube that we have to admit was under out noses the entire time. Nars Jungle Red Lipstick. It’s a perfect semi-matte red that works on all skin tones to warm you up a bit and looks great for wearing during the day and for nights out.

Nars Jungle Red Lipstick makes you feel glam but with an added retro kick that helps to bring out your inner Dorothy Dandridge or Lena Horne while scratching your seven year itch. It’s bright without being overwhelming and makes your face just glow and your smile appears much brighter. Because it’s only semi matte, it goes on smooth and does not dry your lips out. The color pay off is intense and lasts all day with only minimal touch ups. You’re going to absolutely love, love, love this color if you are a red lipstick lover.
