Our Super Bowl prediction is in: Taylor Swift will dominate the crowd–with her signature red lip, of course.

We’ve witnessed the singer don a myriad of rouge shades over the years, from a cool-toned crimson in the Bejeweled music video to a bold ruby hue at the 2024 Grammy Awards.

Which pop of red will Swift choose to cheer on her Kansas City Chiefs beau, Travis Kelce, this Sunday? It’s the million-dollar question. And while we won’t be placing any bets on it, one thing is certain: we’re all about that red lippie!

In true TSwift fashion, we’ve gathered seven perfectly pigmented options to get you game day ready, including some of the pop star’s personal favourites.


Between chatting up Kelce’s mom and stealing post-game kisses, Tay’s red lip has proven staying power. For a formula that truly lasts, consider Maybelline’s 16-hour wear liquid lipstick. It delivers a highly saturated matte finish that seriously stays put.

Another long-wearing formula, this e.l.f. lippie is infused with hydrating squalane and jojoba esters for a super-comfortable, barely-there feel. Its satin finish has red carpet TSwift written all over it.


A gloss with intense colour payoff? Don’t mind if we do. This buttery NYX formula is the stuff of our wildest dreams–see what we did there? Wear it alone for a pop of colour or swipe it over a red lipstick of choice for added allure.


Nars Powermatte Lipstick Dragon Girl
A behind-the-scenes snap of Swift getting ready for the 2014 Met Gala showed the star applying this popular NARS shade to her pout. The rich hue delivers an impressive burst of colour in a single stroke and boasts a transfer resistant formula. We’re obsessed!

Rare Beauty Lip Souffle Matte Cream Lipstick
Like we said, we’re not placing bets on Swift’s game day lippie, *but* if we had to, our money would be on this vibrant Rare Beauty shade by Swift’s bestie Selena Gomez. With its air-whipped texture, this cream lipstick envelops lips in rich colour and nourishing hydration.

Fenty Stunna Lip Paint
A favourite red lipstick of Swift’s longtime makeup artist Lorrie Turk, it’s possible we’ve seen the singer rocking this Fenty lip paint during one of her many public appearances and shows. This universally flattering shade boasts high impact colour with low maintenance.


Swift revealed to People Magazine back in 2015 that she swears by this classic MAC shade. With its full-coverage creamy matte finish, it’s no wonder why the star adores it. Something tells us you will, too.
