Taylor Swift is right, you can never go wrong with a classic red lip. Complete your holiday look with these lipsticks that will surely get you kissing under the mistletoe.
Whether it’s going to your family’s Christmas party, or meeting up with friends for a yearly potluck, a Filipino get-together isn’t complete without going all out with themed outfits. Holiday colors are a very common party motif that everyone seems to enjoy. With the rest of the outfit taken into account, nothing completes the mood than a glamorous makeup look.
Everyone knows that a soft glam matched with a red lip is a classic Christmas beat. However, some might say that red isn’t an inclusive shade. While it may seem intimidating to wear, it’s important to know that there are different shades of red, and it differs in tones. There’s a red tone for everyone, you just have to know the right one for you. Looking for a lippie that’ll look good with your complexion? We’ve got a few to recommend.

To stick to the classic theme, opt for a bullet lipstick. Each brand has a different formulation, but if you’re looking for a pigmented and creamy texture on the lips, BLK Cosmetics’ Hydrating Lipsticks offer four different tones of red perfect for light to darker complexions.
Now, if you’re looking for a matte bullet lipstick, GRWM Cosmetics’ Lip Speak is a comfortable product made to stay on without drying out the lips. It comes in 10 shades, their Lip Speak in the shade Femme Fatale is a cherry red with a blue undertone.
Red lipstick is a tricky shade to apply, which means you’re probably better off applying a product that won’t wear off easily. Colourette Cosmetics’ Colourtint is a multi-use oil tint similar to a liquid lipstick that dries off matte. Known for their longevity, their latest shade Robina is a velvet red tint perfect for buffet-style gatherings.
Peri Pera’s Ink Velvet in the shade 32 Fuschia Red is for everyone intimidated by red tones. Whether you’re a beginner, or you prefer your lippie in the magenta side of red, this lip tint can be applied at the inner part of the lips for a gradient effect, or applied on the whole lip for that puckered effect.
Long lasting and comfortable on the lips in one tint? Yes, please! Y.O.U Beauty’s Cloud Touch Fixing Tint in the shade Airy Kiss has an airy matte finish for the girlies who want that cloud-like and plush effect on the lips.
Let’s be real, we all have at least one Maybelline product in our makeup bag, and for a good reason: it’s reliable and accessible. This year, why not opt for a glossy but lacquer? You might think glossy doesn’t equal long lasting, but with their Superstay Vinyl Ink in the shade Red Hot, you’ll be looking smokin’ this holiday season.
