5 Decadent Bright Red Lipsticks for the Holidays

If there was ever a time to break out the red lipstick, it’s during the winter holidays.   I love red lipstick year-round, and I most definitely have a weakness for a really fantastic red so narrowing them down to five was hard… which is why this list is just bright reds.

What’s your favorite bright holiday red lipstick?

A Holiday Red That Wears and Wears

Dior Diorling (037) Diorific Lipstick ($36.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a vibrant cherry red with subtle blue undertones and finished with a natural sheen. MAC Charmed, I’m Sure is a bit lighter, almost pink-tinged in comparison. Guerlain Luxure is less vibrant. Edward Bess Midnight Bloom is brighter. MAC Red Racer is lighter. MAC Runaway Red is similar. Guerlain Vega is a bit less red. Chanel Dragon is deeper and has shimmer. Guerlain Garconne is similar in color.

It’s full formula name is “Rouge Haute Couleur Longue Tenue” or “Long-Wearing True Color Lipstick.”  Both are very true; this is a highly pigmented, long-wearing lipstick that feels as good as it looks.  Diorling wore for seven hours on me with residual staining getting me to eight hours without feeling compelled to reapply.  It will last through drinking and a light meal as well.  It’s lightly moisturizing, so my lips didn’t feel parched after I removed it.  The color itself was fully opaque and very little product was needed to achieve full color coverage.  It had a creamy, glide-on consistency that didn’t tug or pull at lips and deposited color evenly.  Diorling is one of four shades for the holidays and is packaged in limited edition, vintage gold packaging.

The Glossover



Great formula: extremely pigmented, creamy enough to glide on but not to bleed or feather, long-wearing, and comfortable to wear.
