The Top 5 Red Lipsticks for the Holidays — According to Our Instagram Followers

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.

YSL Rouge Pur Couture Lipstick in Le Rouge 01

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.

L’Oréal Colour Riche Matte Lipstick in Mattetraction

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.

Urban Decay Vice Lipstick in Doubt

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.


NYX Professional Makeup Matte Lipstick in Perfect Red

Another excellent drugstore pick from our followers: NYX matte lipstick in Perfect Red. This one has more blue undertones than the others — but it’s still just as rich and creamy.  

Lancôme L’Absolu Rouge Lipstick in 151 Absolute Rouge

Another classic red, our followers love Lancôme’s Absolute Rouge. This has a gorgeous satin finish with a little reflective shine. It’s no wonder this was another great pick from our Instagram fam.
