The Kansas City Chiefs might have won the game against the Baltimore Ravens this past Sunday, securing their spot in the 2024 Super Bowl, but the real MVP of the night? That would have to be Taylor Swift, 34, or more specifically, her show-stopping (and don’t forget kiss-proof) red lipstick. While there has been much mystery surrounding the singer’s go-to lippie, we have it on good authority that she loves the Pat McGrath Labs MatteTrance Lipstick in shade Elson ($39), so it’s very possible she was wearing it during her championship PDA sesh with beau Travis Kelce. And the best part? Her staple lipstick is still in stock in some other shades she loves.

Now, we’re not 100 percent sure if this is the same lipstick the “Cruel Summer” wore during their kiss at the ATC championships. However, she has been known to wear this particular product on several occasions, including the 2022 MTV VMAs and her record-breaking Eras Tour. Above, you can see the Grammy Award winner strutting the red lip shade in a BTS glam video posted on Pat McGrath’s official Instagram account the day after the MTV VMAs.

Want to purchase one of Swift’s signature red lipsticks for yourself (or the O.G. Swiftie in your life)? Then you’ve come to the right place. Keep scrolling to learn more about the “Cardigan” singer’s go-to lip shade and shop two bonus products that are currently in stock and can help you recreate the musician’s iconic red lip.

If you don’t want to wait for the Elson shade restock, may we suggest the Pat McGrath Labs MatteTrance Lipstick in the shade Elson 2? Swift has worn this particular lipstick color throughout her Eras Tour and we can definitely see why. Described by the brand as the “perfect red,” this color certainly makes a statement with its vivid hue and smoothing effect.
