Top 10 Holiday Red Lip Products

With the holidays quickly approaching, I've found myself gravitating towards red lips a ton lately. I thought that I would round up my 10 favourite Holiday Red Lip Products and share them with you! I used to be very afraid of a red lip, but over the past two years I've really grown to love it. You do have to have a certain amount of confidence when wearing a bold red lip, but I've also included some sheerer formulas. 


Rimmel Apocalips in Big Bang* - This shade is a highly pigmented true red. I really like the Apocalips formula, it's really nice and creamy!

MAKE UP FOR EVER Rouge Artist Natural N46* - This formula is slightly sheer, and it makes wearing a red lip really easy. This formula from MUFE is hydrating, and this is one red that I can apply without a mirror.

MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Rouge #8* (reviewed here) - This shade is absolutely gorgeous, I really love it! This Aqua Rouge formula from MUFE is amazing - once it's on it stays put, all day long. This was the red lipstick that I wore on Canada Day this year, it's that good! 

IT Cosmetics Vitality Lip Blush Hydrating Gloss Stain in Inspiring Red* (reviewed here) - This red gloss has a very pretty sparkle in the formula! When applied, this gloss is a bit sheer, so it's a great one to layer over other red lipsticks. On its' own, it's a great way to wear a red lip without being too bold.

Smashbox Lip Enhancing Gloss in Ruby - I really like this formula from Smashbox! This gloss came in a holiday kit, and I've been loving it. This one applies somewhat sheer, and it's great to wear alone or over red lipsticks. 
  

Left to Right: Rimmel Apocalips in Big Bang, MUFE Rouge Artist Natural N46, MUFE Aqua Rouge #8, IT Cosmetics Vitality Lip Blush Hydrating Gloss Stain in Inspiring Red, Smashbox Lip Enhancing Gloss in Ruby, AERIN Lipstick in Red Velvet, NARS Velvet Matte Pencil in Cruella, Bite Beauty High Pigment Lip Pencil in Pomegranate, Maybelline Color Elixir in Signature Scarlet, Buxom Big & Healthy Lip Cream in Cherry Flip

AERIN Lipstick in Red Velvet* (reviewed here) - This shade has some pink undertones, and I find it extremely flattering. This colour sticks around for about 5 hours, which I think is quite good.

NARS Velvet Matte Pencil in Cruella - This shade is more of a brick red, and it gives a bolder look to my lips. This formula from NARS is fairly drying, so I do tend to layer a gloss over top.

Bite Beauty High Pigment Lip Pencil in Pomegranate - This formula is more hydrating than NARS' Velvet Matte formula, so I do like to wear Pomegranate on its' own. This red has some blue undertones, and it makes your teeth look really white!

Maybelline Color Elixir in Signature Scarlet* (reviewed here) - I really love this new formula from Maybelline! This gloss feels so creamy and hydrating, and the colour payoff is quite good. This is another red shade that I can apply without a mirror.

Buxom Big & Healthy Lip Cream in Cherry Flip (reviewed here) - This shade is quite sheer, but I find that it looks really pretty, and adds a hint of red to my lips. I really love Buxom's glosses, they feel very creamy on my lips.

Whew! So there you have it, my favourite holiday red lip products! There's no better time than the holiday season to bring out your red lip sticks and glosses, it's just so festive :) What is your go-to red lip product?
