Red lipstick is a fail-safe holiday party staple because of its supernatural power to make you feel festive as soon as you swipe it on.
Here, 5 perfect lipstick shades for every holiday party you have this year.
Maybelline Color Sensational Shine Compulsion Lipstick in Berry Blackmail
This Maybelline tube is like a balm, gloss, and lipstick in one. The rich, hydrating berry shade is a cool alternative to moody Bordeaux.
MAC Powder Kiss Lipstick in Impulsive
A neutral lipstick can still pack a serious punch. This new MAC formula goes on blurry and smooth for a worn-in look, but doesn’t dry lips out.
Bobbi Brown Luxe Liquid Lip High Shine in Strike A Rose
The beauty of a rosy-pink lipstick is that it can be whatever you want it to be.
Pat McGrath Labs BlitzTrance Lipstick in Club Kiss
Nothing screams “festive” quite like glitter, so consider metallic lipstick the life of any holiday party. From the makeup artist responsible for the glitter lip trend, Pat McGrath’s new lipsticks are infused with sparkles. Instead of playing it safe with red, try this bold magenta.
Dior Rouge Dior Ultra Rouge Lipstick in 999 Ultra Dior
When in doubt, reach for a matte red lipstick. This Dior formula feels like a comfortable balm, but it’s as vibrant as its counterparts.
