For even the most minimalist beauty routines, a slick of red lipstick is the failsafe formula for dressing up your face. Though we are pretty firm supporters of sporting a ‘wine lip’ on Saturday nights out, we’re sharing our picks for another type of burgundy. We’ve put together a list of our editors’ favorite shades, and all the tips and tricks you need to last you through the holiday season.
For An Everyday Pop
“Nars lip pencil in ‘Dragon Girl’ is the perfect shade of red that is sexy and classy. I wear lipstick like a child and can’t help but mess with it and smear, so this is easy to put on and stays throughout the night- kissing drinking~ doesn’t come off on my man or my glass!” – Chelsey Wilkins, Fitness Editor
For A Vamp-y Night Out
“Nars Audacious in Vera has a raspberry-like hue to it that is a little unique but still pops like a bold red. Feels good and stays on for a long time. One of my favs :)” – Tara Mohtadi, Partnerships Director
For A ‘Barely There’ Look
“Glossier sheer matte lipstick in Zip is the right amount of moisturizing and doesn’t fully cover the lips for a natural, blended in finish.” – Marie-Laure Dumon, Head of Merchandising
