The name says it all — Legendary. It’s a true red with lots of blue in it, so it’s an ideal red lipstick for olive skin. Not quite right for your skin tone? Try “Infrared,” a slightly darker shade in the same line-up.


Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture SPF15 - Pure Colour Satiny Radiance

Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture SPF15 - Pure Colour Satiny Radiance Price: $32.00 at sephora.com
“Le rouge” is a deep blood red, entirely riveting and rich. It’s made with an SPF 15 to protect your pucker while the color draws all the attention. It’s actually ideal for all skin tones, but it’s a particularly good red lipstick for olive skin.


The Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture SPF15 lipstick is a must-have for anyone with olive skin. Not only does it come in a stunning deep blood red shade, but it also has SPF 15 to protect your lips from the sun. This lipstick is designed to draw attention to your lips and enhance your natural beauty. It is suitable for all skin tones, but it is especially flattering for those with olive skin.

Rouge Dior Lipcolor

Rouge Dior Lipcolor Price: $32.00 at sephora.com
There are two shades in this line that would be perfect red lipsticks for olive skin — Favori Red, which is a cherry red, and Ara Red, which is a little warmer. Both have hints of orange, but both are still blue enough that they’d work with a more Mediterranean complexion.


Staying true to its name, the Rouge Dior Lipcolor boasts an iconic formula that promises long wear and a radiant, satiny finish. If you're looking for a red lipstick that exudes luxury while complementing your olive skin tone, these two shades are a must-try. The rich pigmentation delivers an unmistakable statement--a testament to the high-quality, couture-grade beauty that Dior is renowned for. Plus, the lipstick is infused with natural hydrating ingredients, ensuring your lips remain moisturized and comfortable all day long.


Lancôme Rouge in Love Lipcolor

Lancôme Rouge in Love Lipcolor Price: $25.00 at sephora.com
Look at all the reds in this line of lippies! I especially like the Sequence of Love (true red), and Rouge Saint Honor (deep, warm red). Both would work for an olive complexion, but try them both before you buy to see which works best for you.


Kat Von D Foiled Love Lipstick

Looking for the ultimate shine? This red lipstick offers just that — an incredible metallic sheen, one that’s sure to get attention. In this line, the red lipstick for olive skin is called Adora. Isn’t it beautiful? I even love the little case it comes in!


Illamasqua Lipstick

Illamasqua Lipstick Price: $22.00 at sephora.com
Box, Howl, or Maneater — any of these three shades of red would look good with an olive complexion. The bluest is Howl, so start there, and work your way warmer, to Box, then Maneater, and choose the shade that looks best to you.


Illamasqua Lipstick is a must-have for olive skin tones. The three shades of red – Box, Howl, and Maneater – are all designed to flatter olive complexions. Howl is the bluest of the three and is a great starting point, while Box is slightly warmer and Maneater is the warmest of the three. Each of these shades of red will look great on olive skin and will help to enhance the natural beauty of the complexion.

The Illamasqua Lipstick formula is long-lasting and highly pigmented, so it will stay put all day and night. The creamy texture glides on smoothly and is comfortable to wear. It is also enriched with Vitamin E, which helps to nourish and protect the lips.

The packaging of the Illamasqua Lipstick is also quite eye-catching. The sleek black tube is adorned with a bright red Illamasqua logo, making it easy to spot in your makeup bag.


Bite Beauty Define & Refine Lip Set

Bite Beauty Define & Refine Lip Set Price: $36.00 at sephora.com
Why do I love this lippie set? I don’t even know where to start, but I do adore the lip liner, which I also cheat and use as a lip stain, for it’s a true red that goes well with my more sallow skin. I also love that it’s infused with natural oils, to keep my lips happy and hydrated.

So whether your complexion is slightly olive or downright Mediterranean, there’s a red lipstick for your skin tone. The only way to find out for sure is to test-try all of these, and find the one that’s looks good when you’re not wearing any make-up at all.
