Red Lips on a Budget

Ilia Beauty

Remember the red lipstick I included in my recent Five Finds for Swimsuit Season post? Well, I wasn’t playin’.  I really do want a bright red lipstick, and fast. Unfortunately, as awesome as I’m sure Ilia’s Wild Child is, it’s a little out of my price range. I’m nothing if not persistent, so I did a little searching online for a more reasonably priced alternative.

I had the most luck with Etsy:

Each of the above can be shipped anywhere in the US for $3 or less, and they all cost under $20! The shades are pretty perfect too. Now I just need to decide which one to make my own. Wanna help me decide?
If you have a favorite natural red lipstick that isn’t mentioned here, then I’d love to hear about that as well!
