The Red Cosmetica Story

Red Cosmetica was borne out of a simple realisation that, despite the fact that virtually every woman in the world is on a continual search for the perfect red lipstick, no-one had ever created a brand dedicated solely to reds.

That’s why we created Red Cosmetica, the world’s first luxury red lipstick brand, with 15 shades of moisturising, non-bleed, long-lasting red lipstick. Our mission: to make damn sure any woman, anywhere in the world, can find her perfect red in a heartbeat.

Red Cosmetica lipsticks are coded by skin tone and finish to make your search easy and fast. And if you’re still unsure of your perfect shade our What’s My Shade service enables you to email our beauty team have them send you their recommendations for the Red Cosmetica shades that will rock your world.

Red Cosmetica lipsticks are enriched with Apricot Kernel Oil to moisturise lips, non-comedogenic, hypoallergenic, cruelty-free and come in long-lasting, highly pigmented shades of mattes, creams and glosses.


Some of the lip smacking goodness in Red Cosmetica lipsticks

Apricot kernel oil

A light, moisturising oil that easily sinks into your lips to help soften and protect from the elements. It’s also rich in vitamins A, C and E and has anti-inflammatory properties.


A plant based wax extracted from the wax-coated stems of the Candelilla shrub. Candelila wax is softening and protective of your lips.


A vegetable wax extracted from the leaves of a Brazilian palm tree. It has deep emollient, moisturising and protective properties for lips.

Castor oil

Derived from the castor beans of the Ricinus Communis plant, which grows in Africa and Asia, Castor oil hydrates and refreshes lips and makes them feel more supple.


Lanolin a natural derived from sheep’s wool that can easily penetrate the lip barrier to deliver deep moisturising and protective properties.
