10 Holiday Lipsticks Worth Celebrating

During the holidays, we have a tendency to overdo it. We overeat, overspend, you name it. But, there's one arena where we don't feel guilty about going all out: our makeup. In fact, we wonder if the pomp and circumstance of the holiday season came to be just so we'd have a chance to flex our makeup muscles. When else is a full face of glittery products going to be socially acceptable?
But, for those of us just warming up to the idea of going glam this holiday, a statement lipstick shade might be the best place to start. One swipe will instantly turn you into the belle of the ball (or, uh, dive bar, as the case may be).
From classic reds to rich plums, we've rounded up our favorite lipsticks sure to make a splash at any holiday soirée. We're not saying you have to pair them with a sparkling eye or shimmery blush. We're just suggesting that you take full advantage of the most wonderful time of the (beauty) year.
