5 Holiday Lipsticks

These are five of my favorite (trust me, I could have probably done a dozen or more!) picks for your holiday lipstick this season!

  1. MAC Rebel — true berry
  2. Dior Nocturne — played-down red with copper shimmer
  3. NYX Chic Red — bright red
  4. Guerlain Gigolo — deep red with a glossy finish
  5. MAC Ruby Woo — retro matte red

  1. I have Rebel on today. :) have also been toying with the idea of wearing Ruby Woo on Christmas day, absolutely love it!

    Of course my eye goes directly to the Dior before even knowing that was the brand. I have a VERY expensive eye!

    Fell in love with the first color and went to look at what it was. Imagine my surprise at Rebel! I already own it and purchased it because of the review!

    For holidays I’m also digging Lancome’s Red Haute, Nars Vesuvio, and Revlon’s Red Velvet Lip Butter!

  4. Well, do a dozen more then! I love these posts!

  5. I love Rebel! I wear it more than all of my lipsticks!

    I love wearing Guerlain Gigolo! Such a stand-out lipstick! Chanel Rouge Allure Rouge Byzantine is also one of my favorite festive colors.

    What about your favorite Chanel Rouge Laquer in Dragon?:) I plan on wearing that with a gold/bronze eyes.

    • I try to avoid products that are discontinued or no longer available in these types of posts :) There’s no sense in highlighting a product that people can’t buy any more!

  8. Rebel is amazing. I think I’m going to wear it tomorrow 😉

  9. Love Gigolo and its name.LOL.

    <3 the Guerlain. The color depth is amazing.

  11. Gigolo is definitely one of my favourites, along with Dragon and Guerlain Bee (wish they’d made this permanent). Oh and Armani 404, speaking of things that should have been permanent!

    OMG, Gigolo stands out from the pack for its gorgeous lustre. I think it’s even more chic than Nuits d’Amour.

    I own some red lipsticks by MAC and my favourite is Barcelona Red, because it’s red, but not to bright and red. I wish it was a little more cooltoned.

    Only reds and berries? :/

    • These are my favorite holiday lipsticks! If you like something else, why not share your favorites? After all, I did ask for readers to share their picks for the holidays.

    The Milani Lip Flash pencils scream holiday to me, since there are a few that are red and glittery.

    The Dior color is very pretty and unique. :)
