‘Tis the season for you to break out your most dazzling holiday lipsticks! Or it is time for you to (politely!) ask Santa to bring you some very nice new shades. The winter months are the perfect opportunity to rock classic reds or daring sparkles. Luckily, many of our favorite beauty brands have updated both of these styles for their latest Christmas collections.
These limited-edition shades were created just for the 2017 holiday season – so make sure to shop your favorite holiday lipsticks before they sell out for good.
For the 2017 Holiday collection, Chanel released limited-edition versions of their popular Rouge Allure. We are partial to the N°1 shade, a classic true red that goes with any and every holiday ensemble. (For a brighter, orange-toned red, try the new N°4.)
Yves Saint Laurent
The new holiday line of seven limited edition Yves Saint Laurent lip colors are inspired by fireworks. You can see the bursts of sparkling magic in both the luxurious packaging and printed into the lipstick bullet itself. We particularly love Shade 1 from the line, as it’s a flattering nearly-pink red. But you really can’t go wrong with the more unconventional fuchsia, rose, and prune shades either!
Too Faced Cosmetics
If you have a soft spot for cute packaging, you will squeal with delight over Too Faced’s festive holiday designs. This season, the cosmetics brand released their popular Melted Matte formulas with themed caps. So not only is this spice-toned lipstick perfect for fall-to-winter dressing, but the precious cookies are just so whimsical.
Is there anything more iconic than a Dior Rouge lipstick for the holidays? The designer brand’s most popular and luxurious formula has been re-imagined for this holiday season – and is selling out practically everywhere it is stocked.
The latest liquid lipstick addition to the Kylie Cosmetics Holiday Collection 2017 is a vibrant lip kit called “Red Velvet.” This bold shade reminds us of the decadent dessert for sure! Keep an eye out for re-stocks on this one, as Kylie Jenner’s holiday lipsticks are always quick sell-outs.
Marc Jacobs Beauty
Love a good vampy lip? Join the club! Deep burgundy-black lipsticks are some of the hardest colors to rock, but consistently one of the most in-demand winter products. The long-lasting crème formula of this Marc Jacobs shade moisturizes while you wear it, so you don’t have to worry about smudging or cracks.
New this season from lipstick wizard Charlotte Tilbury is a beautiful and dramatic limited edition deep red. The color features “3D glowing pigments” that help make your lips look fuller and “lit from within.” AKA, some holiday magic right here.
Fenty Beauty by Rihanna
Rihanna’s beauty brand dropped an entire “Galaxy” collection this holiday season, and there are several new products to get hyped about. But one limited edition lipstick color worth testing out is the “glimmering garnet” shade “Sci-Fly.” The shimmering jewel-inspired chrome finish is stunning.
“Glitter on glitter on glitter. That’s what The Galaxy Collection is all about, no exception,” Rihanna has even shared about her first-ever holiday line.
Not feeling a traditional red lip this season? Have way too many in your holiday lipsticks repertoire? We feel you. The season is the perfect time to introduce some sparkle into your makeup wardrobe as well. Which is why we are loving the shade “Glam” from ColourPop Cosmetics’ holiday collab with YouTuber Laura Lee and NKLA. The rose gold color gives off a metallic sheen that truly makes an impact.— Kristine Hope Kowalski
