The history of red lipstick goes back to the Dark Ages when red lips were associated with mysterious, dubious women. Today, the striking hue tells the story of a different type of person—someone who is bold, confident, fearless—a straight-up badass. While there is no right or wrong time to flaunt a red lip, there’s certainly no better time than the holidays to incorporate a pop of color into your makeup routine. From sexy dark wine reds to retro cherry vibes, we’ve got you covered with the best red lipsticks that will spice up your holidays.
