Perfect Drugstore Red Lipstick for Holidays

When the holidays come around, it seems like everyone wears the same look: red lipstick and sparkly eyeshadow. Why do so many people do that? Because it’s CLASSIC. It looks good on everyone and is always socially acceptable. Since everyone does it, why not save some money while finding the best products? So, if you’re interested in finding out what affordable red lipstick I recommend for the holidays, just keep reading!

This is the NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick in the shade Cherry Skies ($6.99). NYX describes this as a way to “Doll up your lips in plush and vibrant color! NYX Professional Makeup’s Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick glides on and sets into a striking matte finish. Velvety soft and waterproof, this long-lasting lippie creates a positively polished look with every swipe.” I agree with all of those claims. It is very soft on the lips and glides on easily. I find the shade to be true to color once on the lips. If you’d like a lighter shade of red, go with Kitten Heels. Because of how thin the formula is, you are able to customize how dark or light the shade is. One even layer is a light cherry red and then 2-3 layers is a deeper, ox-blood red.


My only issue is that the applicator is a little long so sometimes it can be difficult to get an even application without having to overdraw your lips. I’m sure if I found a matching red lip liner, I wouldn’t have this issue. The applicator holds a good amount of product and is very soft.


Here is what the lipstick looks like on my lips. I did 2 layers and overdrew my lips just a tad. I really enjoy the formula because of how comfortable it is. It is not transfer-proof but it doesn’t wear quickly either. By the end of the day, it usually looks like I’m wearing a light layer of it. I hope they expand the line and come out with more nude shades so I can grab them!

Thank you for reading! I love getting in the Christmas spirit so I figured talking about my favorite Christmas red would fit right in. I already have my outfit and makeup planned for Christmas dinner and can’t wait to put it all together. I know this lipstick will be used very well this season!  Have you tried this brand or lipstick before? Let me know! Please like and subscribe!
