Best Drugstore Red Lipstick for the Holiday

Wet n Wild MegaLast Lip Color
Shade: Stoplight Red | here *

This claim to be a 4-hour long lipstick with a semi matte finish. Wet n wild is one of the first lipsticks that I’ve tried when I was starting. I love the pigmentation of this product. If you have a chappy lips I advise to do a lip scrub first and moisturize your lips because it tends to cling on dry lips.

Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate Matte
Shade: 111 Kiss of Life | here *

Beside the wet n wild lip color, this lipstick is something that I have used from the past. I gave it to my sister because she loved it so much. I almost forgot that it has a good scent. So just to warn you if you are not into having a scent on you lipstick, you might not like this one. It claims to be a matte finish but it is a semi-matte for me. It is very easy to apply and I don’t have a problem with any sort of dryness. In fact, it actually feels like it’s moisturizing the lips.

Loreal Lipstick
Shade: Matte-ly in Love | here *


Can we just pause for a second and look at this packaging? Honestly, this is probably one of the best lipstick packaging from the drugstore. Matte black with gold details. Ughh I am really a sucker for packaging. Any who, this lipstick claims to be another matte finish, which I disagree. It is more like a satin finish in my opinion. You can definitely see some sheen on the lips but not too much as a gloss. It is easy to apply and have a good scent like the Rimmel Lasting Finish. Also, this is the only bright-orangy red shade that I have picked up from this list.

Wet n Wild MegaLast Catsuit
Shade: Missy and Fierce | here *


If you are looking for a real matte red lipstick this is the one for you. It has a great pigmentation and is not overly drying even though it’s a matte finish. It doesn’t cling on my dry lips but I still recommend for you to prep your lips with a scrub and a balm. Otherwise, this is one of my fave liquid lipstick from the drugstore. I actually did a lip swatches of all the shade a few months back.

NYX Suede Liquid Lipstick
Shade: Kitten Hills | here *

This is another option if you want to wear a liquid lipstick for the holiday. It is a super lightweight with a matte finish. It is very comfortable in the lips that you won’t feel that you’re wearing a lipstick. The formula is so good that I want to pick up more shades.

There you have it. I hope this list will help you create you holiday look for this season. And before I forget, I would like to take this chance to thank you all for supporting  and reading my blog. I celebrated my first year bloggiversary on December 24th. Yayy!! This year was just a kickstarter and I am so looking forward for the next years on this journey.
