My Top Red Lipsticks for the Holidays

Tis the season for tacky Christmas sweaters, tons of glitter and trendy red lips. Whether I’m attending a holiday party or heading out to do some Christmas shopping, I love to get festive with a red pout. I’ve got quite the selection of rouge lipsticks that I’ve collected over the years, but there are three shades that I always seem to play favourites with.

The Quo Lip Velour gloss in the shade Fired Up is a top pick of mine because it applies as a gloss and dries with a matte finish. The deep red colour is stunning for every occasion, and the application brush makes for a flawless finish.

If you’re looking for a bright red to really make a statement, the Revlon Ultra HD Lipcolour in Passion is the perfect match for you. This velvet gloss has a light, moisturizing formula that keeps my lips hydrated and smooth. It also smells delish!

My love for Stila continues with the Framboise MATTE’ificent Lipstick. I love to mix things up with this shade because it’s a bit darker and cooler than a traditional red. There’s no need to pack this beauty in my purse, because the colour stays on all night with no fading or smudging—even after all those eggnogs!

This is my dream team of vibrant reds for the holiday season. Oh, and I hope you don’t mind sharing, because you’ll have all your girlfriends asking to wear them with you!
