I’m not one to wear a lot of red lipstick, EXCEPT in December. Holiday season is THE season for red lips in my opinion. In this video I show you my Top 5 Red Lipsticks for the holidays with live swatches and mini reviews for each one.
This video was made in collaboration with the beautiful Mika of Makeup By Mika on Youtube, so go check out her channel and say hi!
The most important feature for a holiday lip is lasting power and wow factor for me. You want your lipstick to last through the dinners, cocktails and parties of the season and convey that festive feeling that only a red lipstick can give.
My top 5 red lipsticks are both liquid lipsticks and regular tube lipstick. They are all matte but have various degrees of comfort, for those who can’t wear a matte liquid lipstick for a prolonged period of time.
