5 Holiday Red Lipsticks

Seriously to me there is nothing more festive than a red lip. Now granted I love bright lipstick but this time of year there is something extra special about a swipe of red over the lips. Maybe it’s the contrast between darker winter colors and the brightness of red but either way I love it. 
So here is a list of a few of my favorite reds that you can try for the holidays. 
I am sorry that one of these is discontinued but it is such a favorite of mine I just couldn’t leave it out.

1. Ilia Beauty Tinted Lip Conditioner in Bang Bang
A great red that is on the sheer side. This can be built up in intensity and looks great over a red lip pencil.

2. Jane Iredale PureMoist Lip Color in Carrie
A classic red lipstick, this is what I wear when I want that 1950s red lip. 

3. Bite Beauty High Pigment Pencil in Tannin
This is a gorgeous deep matte red that has a slight wine undertone. This has excellent wear time.

4. Revolution Organics Lipgloss in Freedom
This packs some serious punch for a lipgloss. If you’re a fan of reds you need this in your life. 

5. Jane Iredale PureMoist Lip Color in Joy
*tear* The one that got away. I have one little tube left of this and it was my favorite winter lip color. It’s the best of both worlds between berry and red. If you know a dupe for this please share!

And last but not least the one I’m lusting after

It looks like a fantastic brickish red. As I don’t have one I of course need it.

What is your favorite holiday lip color? What kind of makeup do you pair it with?

  1. I am not a red lip type of person, but these lipsticks look beautiful! I would definitely give Bang Bang a chanche because I love Ilia's lip conditioners! Also, Joy looks like the perfect warm red!

  2. I would really try Ilia Bang Bang. It's such a lovely red and great if you're not a typical red lip person. It can be built up to intensity or just worn sheer. =)

  3. ILIA Bang Bang is awesome. I used to have it and OF COURSE it rolled out of my clutch when I was at an event … lost it! Need to replace. I'm also very curious about Bite Beauty. Keep seeing it around and at Sephora. I may get the sampler kit to start. I love all these picks!!! xoxo

  4. Oh no that's terrible! I hate it when good lipstick gets lost. The Bite Beauty is great and super pigmented. I'm eyeing their lipsticks. I keep swatching them when I go into Sephora. =)
