3 Beautiful Holiday Red Lipsticks From Elizabeth Arden

Red lipstick is a rite of passage into womanhood! Not only that—but for the holidays, a great one is an essential. We figured, who better to turn to when looking for a holiday red than Elizabeth Arden? She’s a true cosmetic pioneer in every sense of the word. Did you know that she created a bold red lipstick to coordinate with the uniforms of the women serving in the armed forces during World War II? So it’s fitting that we bring you a collection of reds to choose from this holiday season from the Red Door beauty maven.

Ceramide Ultra Lipstick in ‘Rouge’

Our favorite formula of the three, the Ceramide Ultra Lipstick has an incredibly moisturizing texture that keeps lips hydrated, but the glam blue-red pigments held up after several hours of wear. We can see why this won ‘Best Lipstick’ from Fitness Magazine for 2011, and the iconic golden tube is like a work of art! $22.50 

Exceptional Lipstick in ‘Red Diamond’

We liked Red Diamond because of its soft shimmer and versatility. Those who are afraid of reds will appreciate how easy this is to wear on most skin tones, since it’s not as intense as most others. It stayed put and didn’t wind up on our teeth! $19.50

Color Intrigue Effects Lipstick in ‘Poppy Cream’

This classic red glides across the lips with ease, feels great and leaves behind plenty of shine. With added vitamins A, C, and E and aloe—this lippie almost feels balm-like in texture, but wore like a dream. $19.50
