I’ve Tried 100s of Lipsticks—These Are the Best 9 For Party Season

Even as a beauty editor, I am often stuck in my ways when it comes to my make-up. Whether it’s a day at the office, date night, a work event or an impromptu trip to the pub, it’s almost as if I go into autopilot, applying the same look time and time again. First up, my trusty flick with a brown kohl liner (a game changer by the way), then a slick of mascara, a foundation mixed with some kind of glow cream, a bit of bronzer, cream blusher, powder, a lip gloss and I’m away. And yes, I always do my eyes first and yes a lot of people find it weird.

When this time of year comes around, however, it’s as if the inner Ru Paul in me awakens and I want it all going on at once. Glitter eyeshadow? All over it. Fake lashes? I’ll take a full and fluttery corner set, please. Oh, and while you’re at it, you wouldn’t mind sticking on a few rhinestones? Anywhere will do.

 

But my favourite beauty product for party season, without a doubt, is an amazing lipstick. Whether it’s a bright red, hot pink or a glitter extravaganza, there’s just something about a lipstick that can really compliment a festive getup and add a sprinkle of extra to the vibe you’re going for. 

With that in mind, here are the best party lipsticks that don’t compromise on comfort, ease of application, staying power or pigment. You best believe I’m rocking up to the Christmas ‘do, Winter Wonderland,  my Grandma’s annual festive family gathering and New Years Eve wearing one of them.
