When I think about the holiday season and all of the festive holiday parties. My mind automatically goes straight to a bright red lip. A classic red lip makes such a vibrant statement and feels so incredibly festive. You can pair it with just about any makeup look and any outfit so it’s pretty much the perfect choice.
I wanted to round up my favourite go-to red lipsticks just in time for the slew of holiday parties that will grace us any second because there are so many options out there!
All 5 of my picks are from the blue-toned lipstick family. I truly think that you can never go wrong with a blue-toned base, it goes will just about any complexion, it brightens up your face and makes your teeth look ultra white!
The Affordable Option ($10) – The Maybelline Creamy Matte Lipsticks are my absolute favourite lipsticks from the drugstore, they are incredibly pigmented, super creamy, they feel amazing on and last all night long! The new shade Rich Ruby is the perfect classic red that everyone needs in their collection! (review here)
The Old Hollywood Glam ($36) – Marc Jacobs’ Le Marc Lip Creams are simply gorgeous lipsticks, they have a beautiful silky formula with vibrant pigments and a hydrating feel. Dashing is the perfect old hollywood glam red with a satin finish. (review here)
The Luxe Lipstick ($39) – NARS’ Audacious lipsticks are the ultimate luxury lip colour with full coverage in one stroke and a beautiful weightless feel. They come in 40 ultra concentrated shades and there is a perfect red for everyone but my favourite is Rita – the perfect scarlet shade. (review here)
The Liquid Lipstick ($31) – Stila’s Stay All Day Liquid Lipsticks are in my opinion the best on the market! The formula is absolute perfection with an ultra creamy, weightless feel and full coverage pigments that just won’t quit! Their classic shade Beso is the perfect true blue red that will look amazing on anyone! (review here)
The MAC Matte ($20) – MAC’s matte lipsticks are one of my absolute favourite formulas next to Maybelline. They are super pigmented and nice and creamy. They last for hours and don’t dry out your lips. Russian Red has been my go-to red for 5 years and it is still a favourite, it’s an intense blue-toned red.
