Want some hot lips this holiday season? Try a little Burgundy or berry! This holiday season we’re painting our lips with shades of deep wine and rich berries. Deep ruby tones have been on our color palette all fall. So, we figured why not put away the traditional red lipstick this season for something a little more sophisticated. No matter what your skin tone, the rich hue looks about just right on everyone. Just be sure to tone down the eye make up with such a dramatic lip. Here are our Top Ten Wine and Berry lip shades.

But, if you’re planning to go all out for the holidays, than this shade called Very Prive is the way to go. Besides, if you ever get bored, you can always tell the children at a holiday party that you picked it up at your last trip to Hogwarts, and that they should behave or you might release what lives inside. Tee-hee. 😉
