Best Lipstick Shades for the Holidays and Beyond

blogger hoang-kim cung shares the best lipstick shades for the holidays and beyond, including the hourglass confession lipstick in i still

The fun part about beauty is how versatile it is. A single product can change your look so much, and I definitely have a few I lean toward at different times of the year. For example during the holidays, I’m more likely to opt for red lips versus pink! At the same time though, I have my favorites that are simply seasonless. These are what I have found to be the best lipstick shades, for the holidays and beyond!

Dior Rouge Dior Forever Liquid Lipstick

I first tried this formula last year and was blown away! It is definitely one of the best lipsticks out there. The iconic red (999) is absolutely perfect for the holidays. The shade isn’t too orange or too blue, and it lasts all day long. I know something so bold isn’t for everyone though. If you want a more neutral option, I highly recommend shade 100. It’s what I wore on my wedding day and a favorite of mine year round.

Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat Lip Liner

In my opinion, there’s no better lip liner than this one! It’s incredibly creamy and glides on wonderfully, plus it lasts forever. My favorite part is how universally flattering the shades are. You can wear them with any skin tone!

Too Faced Melted Matte Liquid Lipstick

Out of all the nude shades out there, this is one of the best lipsticks. Cool Girl is such a sophisticated, elevated color, and the formula itself is so smooth and opaque. I’m incredibly impressed by how long it lasts. I can wear it all day and it will last through the evening intact.

Hourglass Confession Lipstick

I love so much about this lipstick! It’s moisturizing, perfectly opaque and doesn’t smudge. I also appreciate that while it does last a long time, it also wears off really well to leave a nice stain. This shade, I Still, is a beautiful red that isn’t too warm or cool. It’s perfectly neutral and even makes my teeth look whiter!
