I hope you had an amazing Christmas! With the holiday season almost officially over, there is still one day to look forward to…New Years Eve! I’ve already shared my outfit, makeup and fragrances with you, but today I wanted to share the cherry on top of every look – a bold, red lip!
A Hollywood-esque red lip is the perfect finishing touch for any New Years Eve outfit. Below, I’ve included 8 of my favorite luxe red lipsticks for New Years in a variety of finishes so you feel polished and pretty wherever you’ll be spending the new year 🙂
Emile Cordon Miracle Lip Balm in “Charlotte“
If you’re more into a more subtle look, I recommend this luxurious lip balm for a perfectly tinted pout with lots of shine! I love the sheer, buildable coverage and how intensely hydrating it is. *Bonus* It can also be used as a cheek tint!
Jill Stuart Lip Blossom in “Tulip Red“
This is another great choice for a more subtle, feminine look! The color is lightweight, sheer and hydrating with a slight pinkish tint. It comes in the cutest case and even includes a mirror in the cap for on-the-go touch ups!
Clarins Joli Rouge Velvet in “Joli Rouge“
This is a deep, pigmented red that screams holidays! It’s a long-wearing matte with a velvety finish. This color also comes in a sheer finish and a creamy finish!
Christian Louboutin Velvet Matte in “Rouge Louboutin“
A deep and highly pigmented lip color fit for a queen! It has a velvety smooth and long-lasting finish. Plus the case is just so regal and beautiful to look at!
If you want to be a little “extra” this New Years, I recommend this lipstick! The color is creamy, smooth, moisturizing and just seems to glide on. All of the lip colors are named after royalty, which I love (I currently have Prince and Queen) and I am just obsessed with the Swarovski embellished bow casing! You can actually mix and match colors and cases (see above) – it’s super easy to switch them out.
Charlotte Tilbury “Red Carpet Red“
This is the color of an old Hollywood move star! It’s the most beautiful ruby red with a matte finish. It’s long-lasting, hydrating and and adds a bit of shine to make lips appear fuller. The unique shape also makes it easy to apply. (See my tutorial in this post)
Lancôme L’Absolu Rouge in “Isabella“
One of my very first reds! This one is super moisturizing and long-wearing with a matte finish. I also love the pop button top to keep it extra secure.
Yves Saint Laurent Pur Couture in “Le Rouge“
A beautiful and highly pigmented red that is perfect for a holiday soiree! It has a creamy, satin finish that is smooth and intensely hydrating. I also love the chic and festive case!
