Even if you’ve never watched a game of American Football in your life, between Usher’s incredible halftime performance and the kiss seen around the world as Taylor Swift celebrated with boyfriend (and winning team member) Travis Kelce, even those who know nothing about football have been enjoying the results of Sunday night’s Super Bowl.

For beauty fans everywhere, there’s been one thing that we’ve all been left wondering, though – exactly which red lipstick Taylor Swift wears.

Her perfect pout (red to match Travis’ team colours) managed to withstand a passionate kiss, downing a beer and plenty of face-clutching moments during the game without budging an inch, and with Valentine’s Day coming up we had to know exactly which product she used. Luckily celebrity makeup artist Pat McGrath came to our rescue, sharing that Taylor often wears her MatteTrance Lipsticks, £36 here.

Taylor Swift's red lipstick is trending after it didn't budge during her kiss with Travis Kelce

In a series of Instagram stories posted shortly after the Super Bowl win, Pat shared a series of ‘kiss-proof’ red lipsticks, all of which have previously been worn by Taylor herself, revealing that Taylor favours the red hues from Pat McGrath Labs’ MatteTrance Lipsticks, £36 here.

In her Insta stories, Pat shared four different shades to help you get a kiss-proof red lip to rival Taylor’s, including Rouge 8, Forbidden Love, Obsessed! and Elson, a blue-toned red which happens to be the one Taylor is known for wearing time and time again.

Apart from the brand’s perfect range of red hues, it’s the formula that makes the lipstick a must-have – especially if you’re planning on any Valentine’s Day smooches. It has a ‘powder in a bullet’ matte formula that gives an intense colour payoff that lasts for hours, and its hydrating oil-infused powder means you never feel like your lips are dry or flaky like some other matte lippies.

If you prefer your matte lip to come in a liquid formula, we’re big fans of MAC Cosmetics’ Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour, £25 here, which dries down almost instantly into an immoveable matte finish that lasts up to eight hours without fading.

The secret to a perfect red lip is actually in the lining, as it not only helps define and shape your pout, but helps create a barrier that stops your red lipstick from bleeding. Applying the lipstick without a lip liner can give you a wobbly, uneven application, and when you’re using a colour as strong as red it can be super obvious when you make a mistake.

If you’re on the lookout for a great red liner to use, e.l.f’s Cream Glide Lip Liner in Red Receipt, £3 here, has five star reviews from shoppers and helps define and seal the edges of your lips ready for your Taylor-approved red lipstick.

With Valentine’s Day almost upon us, now is the perfect time to give it a try and put it to the ultimate kiss-proof test.
