Sharing a few of my favorite bold red lipsticks just in time for the holidays!
Am I the only gal that takes out her stash of red lipsticks around this time of the year? Don’t get me wrong, it’s not like I keep them hidden away until the month of December rolls around but I am more inclined to don on a red lip more frequently around this time of the year.
This is also the time of the year when there’s a brisk bite in the air, and one of my favorite little tips for brightening my mood when it is too cold to function is brightening up my lips! It’s seriously amazing what a statement pout can do to get you in the holiday spirit and add some pep in your step!
Below I’m sharing a few of my favorites along with a brief description of how they wear throughout the day. Definitely leave a comment below and share your favorite bold lip color for the holiday season (and year around)!
FLOWER Beauty Miracle Matte Liquid Lip Color in “Scarlett Letter” – This is the color I’m wearing in these photos and probably my favorite one of the bunch! The undertones are more of a blue red and the formula is long lasting without being overly drying. It does bleed a bit and the applicator is a little wonky but the color payoff is so good and the shade is the perfect Christmas red!
Revlon ColorStay Ultimate Liquid Lipstick in “Top Tomato” – Another excellent long lasting formula! This liquid lipstick is very matte but doesn’t overly dry your lips and feels comfortable on. This one also has a blue undertone to it and really pops!
Revlon Matte Balm in “Striking” – If you’ve been around for a while you knew this lipstick had to make the list. This is one of my OG favorite red lipsticks and the formula cannot be beat. It’s breathable, the pigment is spot on and it’s a crayon for crying out loud – so cute!
Maybelline Color Sensational Red Satin Lipstick in “On Fire Red” – This is the shade of red lipstick that experts would consider universally flattering. The color is a true red and doesn’t really read overly blue or orange. The formula is great and super soft on the lips and the color lasts a long time.
Maybelline Color Sensational Red Satin Lipstick in “Are you Red-dy” – Same formula from the one above, with a satin finish, and the color is beautiful. This one falls more within the more coral-y reds and looks great on people with a yellow undertone to their skin.
MAC Red Lipstick in “Ruby Woo” – This is another shade my regular readers should have expected on the list. The formula is very matte so I suggest lining your lips before application. This shade had a blue undertone and is the ultimate red!
Maybelline Color Sensational Vivid Matte Liquid Lipstick in “Rebel Red” – Another beautiful red and the formula is amazing! Not too drying but still very matte, I love this red because it reminds me of Christmas. It’s a very cheery red with a bit of an orange undertone.
