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?

So Red Hot, It’s (Super) NSFW

OCC Super NSFW Lip Tar ($16.00 for 0.33 fl. oz.) is described as a “true red with a golden metallic flourish.” It’s a vibrant cherry red with golden shimmer, which gives it a warmer tone overall. The sheen is more noticeable from a normal viewing distance than up close. CoverGirl Burn is darker. CoverGirl Captivate is more berry. Dolce & Gabbana Ruby is more orange. Hourglass Siren is similar but glossier (it is a gloss!).

Richly pigmented, it yielded opaque color in very little product–if you’ve never used a Lip Tar before, I warn you use the smallest amount possible, like one or two millimeters of product squeezed out of the tube.  Lip Tars are best applied with a brush and because they can easily be over-applied, less rather than more, then layered if you need additional product.  This shade stained mildly after I removed it, but it wasn’t as prone to staining as I anticipated (better in my book, but it’s more of a personal preference).  I managed to squeeze in six hours of wear yesterday of this before needing to remove it, and it was still going strong at that point. Based on my experience with Lip Tars, I would say the color would have lasted another two to four hours easily.

Excellent color coverage, and it's a very holiday-esque red that wears well without drying my lips out. It's just a little warm, so I think it would work on a variety of complexions.
