The Best Dark Cherry Lip Products You Need for Valentine's Day

From Fenty Beauty to Kosas, here our favorite brand’s takes on dark red.

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, embracing romance is pretty much forced upon us wherever we go. With echoes of red and pink lining every street corner, this holiday is also one that we tend to decorate our homes and bodies for. If you’re not super into doing a red sweater covered in hearts, may we suggest matching your makeup to your red hot feelings? You may have saved your favorite red makeup for Christmas but Valentine’s Day may just be the perfect time to rock it for the first time in 2024.

If you’re not quite ready to rock red eyeshadow, how about some lipstick instead? It’s super easy to apply and does the job of color coordination. However, basic red isn’t what we’re seeing on our social feeds these days. It seems as though many are opting for a more avant-garde, edgy look—like a dark cherry red. This deep color is full of passion, allure and it’s just plain captivating.

You could go for a velvety matte liquid lipstick, which resembles more of a bold statement than the rest. Or grab a lip liner to pair with a gloss—a lighter take on the classic red lip. Either way, we’ve organized a list of our absolute favorite dark cherry lip products for you to sort through for this upcoming Valentine’s Day. Whether it’s a date night or Galentine’s with friends, we hope these products will be the cherry on top (no pun intended) of your evening.

Victoria Beckham Beauty Lip Definer in “Red”

An incredibly creamy and velvety smooth product, this lip liner from Victoria Beckham Beauty perfectly enhances the shape of the mouth while providing ample definition. Precise, comfortable and waterproof wear are included with purchase, including a lip pencil sharpener to keep your cherry red lips looking intact all day long.

Clinique Almost Lipstick in “Black Honey”

It’s never wrong to go with a true classic — “Black Honey” from Clinique has been flying off the shelf for years, nay decades. This shiny, sheer dark red finish looks so luxurious on the lips, excluding charm and modernity. We suggest buying it in bulk though, because these babies sell out quite fast.

Byredo Lipstick in “Mad Red”

$50 USD

This deep, almost raspberry red is known for its saturation and longwear capabilities. Byredo‘s makeup is truly next level and this lipstick is no exception. Bonus points for it being non-drying, lightweight and the best part? It does not bleed and that is quite the accomplishment for such a suffused product.

Kosas Wet Stick Moisturizing Lip Shine in “Bikini Blaze”

Kosas
Wet Stick Moisturizing Lip Shine
$24 USD
KosasKosas 

We’re obsessed with how this Kosas lipstick mimics a dark cherry jam—it’s so juicy yet, pigmented. Lipsticks can be super drying, but with squalane, ceramides, hyaluronic acid and peptides to moisture and provide healing hydration, this lip shine will be for the entirety of a cute V-Day date.

Fenty Beauty Stunna Longwear Lip Paint Fluid Lip Color in “Underdog”

Fenty Beauty
Stunna Longwear Lip Paint Fluid Lip Color
$20 USD

With precision in every stroke, Fenty‘s Stunna is the ideal date night or Galentine’s Day lipstick for longwear—it will not budge no matter how hard you try. Appealing to all skin tones, this dark cherry lip paint fuses art and makeup, while remaining weightless—an astonishing task for such opaque color.

NYX Fat Oil Lip Drip Vegan Lip Oil in “Status Update”

NYX
Fat Oil Lip Drip Vegan Lip Oil
$9 USD
UltaUlta 

Plump hydration lasting for 12 hours in this cold weather? Sign us up. If you plan on sharing a kiss on the 14th but want to skip the sticky gloss, opt for this gorgeous NYX sheen that’ll look extra stunning with a great lip liner, like the one we’ve suggested above.
