The Red Cosmetica Story

Red Cosmetica was borne out of a simple realisation by its founder that, despite the fact that virtually every woman in the world searches continually for her perfect shade of red lipstick, no-one had ever created a brand dedicated solely to reds.

In 2016 Red Cosmetica entered the world with 15 killer shades of luxury red lipstick and a single-minded mission: to make damn sure every woman, anywhere in the world, can find her perfect red in a heartbeat.

Red Cosmetica lipsticks are named by codes that tell you the skin tone they suit and the finish to make it easy for anyone to find their perfect red in a heartbeat. And for those who are still unsure of their perfect shade we have a unique What’s My Shade service that enables you to email us and have our beauty team send you their recommendation of at least 2 Red Cosmetica shades that will rock your world.

What’s more, 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

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.
