I hope you’re all having a great start to this wonderful holiday season! I know that around this time of the year, the holiday festivity invites come streaming in and I’m left trying to magically create party outfits and makeup looks that I won’t regret in the morning. Below, I’ve thrown together a list of my go-to festive holiday lip colors that never let me down and land on my “NICE” list all year round.
A deep plum red is such a classic color for this time of the year so I knew I had to include Le Freak by Colourpop to my list. ColourPop Lippie Stix include ingredients such as shea butter and Vitamin E to help nourish your pout when the temperature drops. They’re also highly pigmented, dry down to a flawless matte and you won’t have to worry about skipping on the cider and cocoa because these lippies have amazing staying power.
I’ve raved about Tarte Color Splash Hydrating lipsticks in my Best Lip Colors for Fall post so it’s not a surprise that this Berry Mojito shade would make my holiday list. This formula (which boasts of algae and marine flower extracts!) is one that I swear by whenever I need some color on my lips without leaving them chapped or dry. Throw on a few swipes of this and you’ll be ready to leave a mark on whoever is brave enough to meet you under the mistletoe.
Let’s talk about Buxom and their Wildly Whipped Lipsticks for just a second here because I AM A BELIEVER. Buxom products have a unique blend of peptide and hyaluronic acid boosters that help stimulate collagen, build volume, and plump your pout without leaving your lips feeling irritated. Add that to the sexy berry red pigment in Dominatrix and you’ve got yourself some holiday gold.
If you’re on the hunt for lipsticks that are basically life-proof then search no more! The Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks From Kat Von D are your new best friends. You can eat, drink, kiss or diss all you want at those holiday parties and your lipstick won’t be going anywhere! They have 24 hour lasting power, have high pigmentation, are packed with moisturizers like Vitamin E and Sunflower Seed Wax and dry to a comfortable matte finish. What more can you ask for?
I am so in love with NYX Matte Lipsticks! They have the quality of a luxury lipstick without the price tag that comes with it. Not only are they incredibly affordable, (Six dollars! Come on!) they’re highly pigmented, never leave my lips feeling dry and come in twelve beautiful shades for every occasion. For my holiday list, I chose Perfect Red because it’s just that; perfect!
Stay merry babes!
