5 Lipstick Shades Every Southern Woman Should Own
Peek into any Southerner’s makeup bag or vanity drawer, and you’re sure to find more than a few tubes of lipstick. I mean, what other beauty product can elevate your look—and mood—with just one swipe? As a self-proclaimed lipstick hoarder (currently there are eight tubes in my purse alone), I appreciate the instant glamour of a painted pout. No matter if you’re a color chameleon like myself or tend to gravitate towards a specific hue, there are some lipstick shades every woman should wear at least once in her life. Check out these classic colors that have stood the test of time and are deserving of a spot in your lipstick wardrobe if they aren’t in there already.
Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Fire & Ice
Between the “Are you made for Fire and Ice?” tagline to the glamourous ads featuring Texas born model, Dorian Leigh, coordinating her lips to her equally rosy fingertips, this vibrant red hit the scene in the 1950s. It’s no surprise that sixty years later women still can’t get enough of its universally flattering hue.

Thanks to its sheer, glossy finish, the raisin shade highlights your natural lip tone. Plus, it’s an easy way to experiment with wearing a deeper berry.

L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Lipcolour in Fairest Nude
Mary Kay True Dimensions Lipstick in Sassy Fuchsia
Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Moisturizing Lipstick in Power Red
I am woman, hear me roar is exactly the message this timeless red conveys. It was handed out to suffragettes and embodies the female empowerment movement, which is why it continues to make a pretty, yet powerful statement today.
