Favorite Red Lips for the Holidays

IMG_1350Christmas and holiday parties are upon us. Red lips on Christmas are a must have! I know there are lots of options available, but I wanted to give you a list of my favorites.

MAC Cosmetics Ruby Woo Lipstick ($17)

IMG_0349There’s not much to say about this guy. It’s a cult favorite. I’d say this is a must have lipstick for everyone. It’s a true red with blue undertone and it makes your teeth look whiter.

Sephora Collection Strawberry Kissed Cream Lip Stain ($14)

IMG_0302This is a funner brighter option. It’s a pinky red. One of my all time favorite colors to wear. I’d also check out Really Red in this line. It’s a true red with blue undertone.

NARS Mysterious Red Velvet Matte Lip Pencil ($26)

IMG_0294The only way I could describe this shade is a true red with a slight warm undertone. Online it’s described as a “Crimson Red.” This is the color I wore last Christmas. FYI I think these lipsticks are so underrated. NARS has some of the best lipstick formulas out there. These are pretty much a lipstick/lip liner in one.

YSL 202 Rose Crazy Rouge Pur Couture The Mats Lipstick ($36)

IMG_0271If you wanna be fancy then this is the lipstick to choose. It’s described as a “matte cranberry red.” This lipstick has a very creamy matte texture. It contains jojoba oil so it’s very moisturizing. It may not last as long as the others, but it will leave a pretty stain.

I want to give a quick shout to Revlon’s matte lipstick in Really Red. It was one of the first bright red matte lipsticks I have ever owned. And I believe it’s only five bucks.

I also think the eye shadow look I did would be perfect! I used the Kat Von D Shade & Light Eye Palette for the crease. Any color a couple shades darker than your skin tone would work. On the lids I used MAC’s naked pigment. I topped it off with a winged liner (Stila). Don’t forget the lashes!

I hope this encouraged you to put on your red lips! I think this year I’ll rock Ruby Woo! What about you?

XO, Diana
