Growing up in the 21st century, we’re kind of spoiled when it comes to trends. No longer do we flip through the pages of the latest print beauty magazine (ok, well maybe sometimes we still do). We tend to find and follow our trends via the app that is attached to our hip all day everyday: Instagram. Insta beauty gurus are slowly but surely taking over the trend-verse — so we felt that it was only apropos to ask your #Instaworthy red lipstick of the holiday season, and here’s what our Instagram followers had to say.
The classic red for winter — YSL Le Rouge 01 has a super creamy pigment with a satin finish. It glides on any bare lip, but we suggest to add a layer of red liner underneath to really turn up this red’s volume. That’s why it’s no surprise that our followers picked this one first and foremost.
Our followers have a clear handle on great matte lipsticks with their L'Oréal Colour Riche Mattetraction pick. This lipstick is best known for its ability to stay matte, yet still glide on in a smooth and creamy fashion.
This red lipstick with a slight orange undertone is the perfect shade for those of us who like to bend the classic red lip rules. It really does complement any skin tone — and it’s sure to last for hours.
