What is a holiday season without highlighting some of my current set of favorite ruby red-hued beauty products? I’m always on the hunt for more metallic reds, so I look forward to reading your favorites!

  1. OCC Black Metal Dahlia — a deep, dark burgundy-red with ruby red metallic shimmer
  2. Hourglass Siren — no list is complete without Siren, a fiercely metallic, opaque gloss
  3. OCC Role Play — a ruby red with a metallic finish and cool undertones
  4. Inglot #450 — a deepened, cool-toned reddish-berry with a metallic sheen
  5. Milani Cherry Crave — a warm, metallic red

What are your personal favorites?

    Ooh, stunning picks! That OCC nail polish look lovely! I’d have to add OCC Super NSFW Lip Tar to the mix too :)

  3. My top five are:
    1) A England Nail Polish in Perceval
    2) Bobbi Brown High Shimmer Lip Gloss in Black Ruby
    3) Chanel Le Vernis in Malice
    4) Guerlain Rouge G L’Extrait in Orgueil
    5) MAC Pro Longwear Lipglass in Driven by Love

  4. Woah, check out Role Play, gorgeous!

  5. Sally Hansen Wine Not and China Glaze Short & Sassy nail polishes are two great ruby reds.

    I have to say that I also love Kat Von D’s Adora. But I love OCC and was so happy to see them get two nods. :>

  7. That Milani lipstick looks amazing – I wish Milani were still available here :(

    Zoya calls it “purple”, I think, but I consider “Roxy” more a ruby red so that would be my vote.

    Milani ruby jewels nail polish should be on this list. It’s the only red nail polish that am willing to wear

    Yeah, I have to get Siren… I swear the internet is conspiring to make me buy it because I keep happening across reviews and swatches of it. This week then, YOU WON internet!

  10. I hardly wear reds unless they’re metallic! I fell in love with Guerlain Coque d’Or (120) Rouge Automatique (that coral red) after receiving a deluxe sample and Sephora’s Vinyl Lip pencil in 02 Fancy Red which I think is discontinued?
