You better watch out, you better not cry, you better not pout…actually, you should pout. The holidays – in addition to being a time of presents, peace on earth and goodwill towards (wo)men – are also about serving up the chicest wintertime looks imaginable, like mid-calf boots paired with either chunky or form-fitting sweaters and sweater dresses, topped off with a high ponytail and, of course, a festive pout. Every year, like the big, red bow on a carefully wrapped gift, your holiday lipstick choice ties your seasonal look together. And in this time of experimental looks running rampant in the fashion world, there’s no such thing as too daring! Whether you’re waiting for bae under the mistletoe, sipping a hot cocoa with your family or doing the most for Instagram (go ‘head, girl!), these 10 lipstick shades are perfect for all things “silent night” and “Santa, baby.”
