Holiday Red Lipsticks: My Top 5 Favorites!

Happy Holidays! Are you all ready for thanksgiving this Thursday? I think I am, I got all of my grocery shopping done this morning and ready for a cooking extravaganza this Wednesday and Thursday! My family will be having a yummy traditional thankgiving dinner early in the afternoon and then later that night we will be meeting with some wonderful friends of the family for a later thanksgiving dinner and fun!! How about you? What are you doing for Thanksgiving? I hope being safe and enjoying your loved ones.

In the midst of it all, I have another video to share with you all. I know you already seen my Pinup inspired makeup look video on youtube with the beautiful holiday red lipstick, right? Well, today I am going to share with you my top 5 favorite red lipsticks in order to help you find that fabulous red for the holiday season too! In this post you will find a variety of price points, from drugstore to beauty store products. It is always great to have variety! Coming in a #5. . .

 

#5: Loreal Colour Riche Lipcolour #315 "True Red", $6.99. L'Oreal Colour Riche is deep, luminous color in a weightless, creamy texture. Dewy, botanical formulations that moisturizes, condition, and last for hours without flaking or splitting. I picked this one out a while back in February because I wanted a red that was light weight and not over powering either. I also like the price point of this one if you did not want to spend a lot of money.
 

#4: Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics liptars: NSFW, $13 OCC Lip Tar combines the longevity of a lipstick, with the ease of application of a gloss. This tar goes on slick and moist, and dries down to a satin finish. Ultra-saturated in color OCC Lip Tar is 100% Vegan and Cruelty-Free, and is also free of parabens and other harsh preservatives. A simple, elegant formula that contains Hemp Oil, Peppermint Oil and Vitamin E. I little bit of this lovely goes a long way. I am not kidding. If you have not seen my review on the OCC liptars click "here" to see my full review and video.

 

#3: SEPHORA COLLECTION Rouge Cream Lipstick Passion Red 03, $12 This lip color is a revamp of the iconic Sephora Lip Attitude Chic, this new hydrating formula provides improved coverage and is filled with pigment. The creamy texture softly glazes your lips, imparting just the right amount of color and sheen. They are not kidding, this lipstick glides on so easily and feel moist while wearing this dreamy color. I love the price point of this on too!!

 

#2: Buxom Big & Healthy Lip Stick Tokyo, $18 This cutie is a three-in-one lip perfector. Buxom Big & Healthy Lip Stick works three full-time jobs—it defines the shape of lips like a liner, fills them in with creamy velvet color, and then plumps them to their full buxom potential. It's a three-in-one lipstick that's quick and convenient for defined, colorful, buxom lips anytime, anywhere. When I need color in a quick minute without having to find a matching liner this one never fails me. It feels cool and soothing to the lip with a convenient sharpener on the end.

 

#1:MAKE UP FOR EVER Rouge Artist Intense 43 Moulin Rouge, $19 . This is a highly pigmented and long-lasting lipstick that delivers rich color in one stroke. This vibrant satin red lip color is formulated with 50% more pigment than the traditional lipstick, Rouge Artist Intense gives an immediate true-to-color result. A blend of three natural waxes, the creamy texture glides on effortlessly for a long-lasting hold. The extensive color and texture range provides unlimited creativity. I swear this color goes on so smooth and last me up to 5 hours before having to touch up. Love this red!!

So with that said I decided to create a series of 3 looks inspired by the changing of the leaves that occurs during this time of year. The look you are about to see today will be a wearable look that can be worn to work or school if you are a makeupnista that has time to get all dolled up in the morning or a nice date night look out. Look #1 will be inspired from this photo below.

The products I decided to use are as follows:
