The Perfect Red Lip For The Holidays

The perfect blend of burgundy and brick with stay-all-day power. I think we have a winner. In collaboration with ColourPop.

What is your criteria for the perfect party lip? For me, I love a classic red lip. Simple as it may be, it is something that instantly uplifts any look, whether you’re dressed up in your favourite party sequins or down in the casual t-shirt and jeans. A red lip is also something that looks good on everyone – you just have to find the shade to suit your skin tone and mood.

While I like a bright red lip for my everyday look, holiday party season calls for a darker, more romantic shade that will easily take you from daytime to nighttime. With all the feasting that’s going to happen, it is also crucial that the red lip you choose comes with the power to stay on all night. You don’t want the colour to slide off your lips while you’re sipping champagne or indulging in the desserts. It means you have to touch-up less, too.

ColourPop’s new Persuede Me Lippie Stix Collection features six lipsticks that range from nude-peach to plum-brown. My eyes, however, naturally gravitated to Goldie. Most dark red lipsticks tend to lean towards the wine-purple side, but this has just the right blend of burgundy and brick-brown. All romantic without the vampy.

While the Matte X Lippie Stix’s application is super smooth with no patchiness – very important for matte lipsticks – what really seals the deal is its sturdy staying power. Not only does it not move for a long time, it also leaves on a tint when it finally starts to wear off. It is like an extra line of defence against melting colour and one less reason to touch-up halfway through dinner. Oh, and one more thing? The lipstick itself is so skinny that it easily fits into micro-bags, clutches and pockets. Party-perfect red lipstick? I think so.
