The idea of completing your holiday makeup look with red lipstick isn’t usually groundbreaking — we get that— but with the launch of the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Reds of Worth collection you might feel differently this year. With a variety of red shades, undertones, opacities and finishes, this line of reds is bringing new life to the classic color this holiday season. It’s the go-to lipstick to polish you up for every event (virtual or IRL) with just a few swipes. Ahead, we’ve matched some of our favorite holiday occasions with the best red lipsticks from this unique collection of alluring crimson hues.
For A Virtual Holiday Party
This bright-hued red is a must-have for any virtual holiday events you find yourself zooming into. It has a slight bluish undertone and an extremely pigmented finish that will show up on perfectly camera (even if your connection isn’t so perfect).
For An IRL Holiday Party
Go glossy for an in-person holiday party with this stunning combination. Ambitious Red is a shade with a pink undertone red that complements just about any skin tone, and serves as a saturated base for Rebel Red. The high-shine red finish will catch all the light at your event whether it has Christmas or Hanukkah-themed bulbs!
For A Holiday Dinner With Friends
Try this neutral-red hue for an upcoming holiday dinner with friends or family — not only does it glide on with creamy ease, it’s the perfect pink-red to enhance your natural lip shade. The best part? It’s long-wearing, so it’ll last through the entree, drinks and even dessert without transferring.
For Ice Skating
If ice skating is a longstanding holiday tradition of yours, opt for this transfer-proof formula in a true red hue next time you go. It will remain on your lips if you’re wearing a protective face mask, andwon’t smudge or budge when it’s time for a post-skating hot chocolate.
For Nighttime Holiday Lights
A deeper-hued red is perfect for nighttime holiday activities, especially if you’re heading to go see holiday lights around your neighborhood or in a city. This oxblood-hued red will do just the trick and will bring a little edge to your look.
